most excellent beer from a can - please do yourself a favor and pour it into a glass before drinking to experience the full effect - excellently dry hopped to give it a wonderful citrusy/piny aroma is followed by a wonderfully balanced hoppy/malty drink - this is the second beer that I have had from this brewery which has just become available locally, canít wait to try more

Had some on top, I thought the tap was hilarious (beer can). This beer really surprised me, dry and not too bitter from start to finish, goes down very smoothly. Not as hoppy as a lot of other IPAs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [Courtesy of Storm, another great session @ Papsoe] Average creamy like beige head that mostly diminished. Cloudy golden color. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of elderflower, grapefruit, apricot, very citrusy, caramel, and some underlying fruity notes as well. Medium bodied with a dry texture and an average carbonation. Dry and bitter finish. 31-08-2007

clear amber, whispy white head, light sweet malt aroma with a touch of hops, good malt flavor, mostly dry, hint of sweet pine, nice balancing bitterness, milder than the can but still a tasty quaffable
Mode: fresh draft
good sweet malt with some nice sweet piney hop character, good balancing hops, great grapefruit, blooms into wonderful sweet hoppy grapefruit juice

you canít keep fresh kegs when you have 200 taps
a old can from a very cold fridge does not hold up any better than an old keg from a place that does not rotate kegs very often, but still quite tasty when stale
Aroma: 9/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 16/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.

Canned. Semi clear and amber coloured with a rather large offwhite head. Quite refreshing with notes of flowers, pines, fruits and also has a quite maltt sweetness to it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours somewhat hazy amber, aroma of hops, wet forrest, maybe some pine resins. Flavor is full bodied, hops, pepper, brown sugars and malts. Wow, pretty good damn pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Draught at The Ginger Man (Manhattan - NY).
Orange/reddish color with good head of discreet duration. Much flowery and perfumed aroma with optimal notes of wood, cask and toasted sugar. Dense and barren taste, rather sweetish but that towards the end it is developed in a determined and alcoholic bitter. Balsamic and harmonious, good persistence.

Itís nice to see more of these brews making their way into CT. Pours copper with a white creamy head. Smells of pine, citrus, some tea, hints of pepper. Tastes of grapefruit, some sweet malt and bitter on the finish. I had some higher expectations for this.
