50 cL bottle. Pours almost clear orange with a lacing white head. Citrus fruity aroma, light soapy and mild malt note. Flavour is quite floral and towards fruity. Subdued malt base and rather dry flavour. Rising bitterness swept in citrus fruity flavours into the finish. Nice.

Ungstrup (29663) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2009
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of hops, brew mash, malt, caramel, and dust. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hop juice - making it almost chewy, earth, hay, and some citrus. The finish is bitter with notes of hops and hay lingering. Not my favorit hop mixture. Thanks fiulijn for this treat.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of joergen. Clear, amber golden with a creamy white head leaving some laces. Fresh and citrusy aroma hops in the nose. Medium body with lightly sweet malts and a whiff of caramel and a distinctly bitter finish. We are close to IPA territory here. Again a lovely beer from Oppigård. 140308

omhper (19796) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2008
UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Bottled. Clear golden, average head. Perfumy flowery hoppy nose. Dry, crisp and slim, yet fruity. Freshly hoppy and rather soft with light body. Long bitter finish. Very refreshing, well balanced beer. Oppigårds beers are continously improving!

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2009
Golden color; huge head, frothy. The malt profile of this beer is very subdued, the mouthfeel being quite dry and the body not strong; but in the end there is a nice toffee flavor. All the rest is hop; the aroma starts with hop flowers, gently fruity, then light resins and acidic puke, deserving a 7.5; strong bitterness, with dry resins, and very long final. Good, interesting, unbalanced but definitively refreshing.

saxo (14151) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2009
Bottle. Nice head with medium duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are dominated by bitter hops, citrus and malt, A bit one dimensional, but has a nice bitter finish.
