From memory. I’ve had this multiple times on tap at PP Carlsbad and from cask at the same location. Non-cask is my preferred version. Pours dark black with a slight tan head. When fresh the beer is absolutely ripped resinous pine, bitter hops, and a touch of citrus. Just a glorious aroma. Taste follows the aroma with the heavy pine/bitter hops dominating before giving way to a nice, dark malt backdrop. Clean, almost creamy feel in the mouth. One of my personal favorites from PP Carlsbad.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Growler… This beer rocks!… Pours dark and sits black in my glass with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is a mysterious whirl of floral hops, ginger, pink bubblegum and sassafras root blended with more subtle notes of mandarin orange and damp leather. Full-bodied and ultra creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is malty and bittersweet – pouch tobacco, scorched malt and grassy hop bitterness. Bittersweet, burnt finish with a lingering pinch of brown sugar. Growler of world class California beer shipped back to the southeastern USA by plovmand!

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2010
Draft. A black beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is very hoppy lending it primarily notes of grass, but with underlying notes of roasted malt and a touch of honey. The flavor is very sweet with a fight between the roasted malt and the hops - the latter lending it notes of over ripe oranges, alfa acid, and wet grass. The bitterness and alcohol competes about tickling the tongue most.

Pours dark blackish-red with a small, creamy, beige film head. Aroma is wonderful. Lots of Chinook-like notes, grapefruity, piney, light citric and peachy. Fair grainy chocolate notes behind it with a light liqourice hint. Lowish carbonation, super creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, lots of liqourice, mild vinious, dark chocolate. Piney, citric, fruity hops with firm bitterness. Very delicious!
