Tap at Ocean Beach Pizza Port. Sticky sweet with losts of pine and resinous hops. Good, but the problem is with so much competition around this can’t compete. Would be a god send here in Australia though.

GABF 2010. Pours a mostly clear golden with great white head and nice retention. Aroma is big bpoine resin and marijuana, slight sea foam, then tropical pineapple and mango. Flavor is dank old rotting pineapple, weed, light biscuit cracker, and toast, also has an oily dank pineapple-weed oil tincture flavor, very dank, resinous, pine, and grapefruit. Sticky sappy bitterness in the end and still dry. Very good.

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours amber golden with a light hazy touch and a fine, staying, creamy, yellowish head. Aroma is lovely, good hops with notes of oranges, grapefruit, a bit of cellar, piney. Medium carbonation, a very nice dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is great as well, lots of hops, grapefruit, red apples, mild bitterness. Long, lingering dryness with medium bitterness. Lightly vinious. Very well-balanced.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2010
on tap at pizza port ocean beach a couple months back. pours a hazy, orange gold with a thick, creamy off-white head and thick lacing. aroma is a bit different than i expected, very herbal hops, grass, pine esters, and pine sol cleaner with hints of orange peel. my notes read "odd". flavor is much of the same, very different from most west coast ipas, with herbal hops, orange seeds, lemon pledge, and a bit of dank grass. palate is medium bodied with light carbonation and light bitterness. overall, an odd ipa that quite a bit different than what i expected.

Growler shared by plovmand, thanks buddy! :) Pours a clear dark amber colour with a off white head. The aroma has a solid caramel base with notes of alcohol, lemon, peach, pine and pineapple. Flavour is caramel and fruity, quite dry with a alcohol note and a massive bitterness.

Ungstrup (34376) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2010
Draft. A hazy red beer with a creamy off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of hops lending it notes of grass. The flavor is very sweet and very spicy - cinnamon and cloves are readily picked up, combined with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

Defreni (2998) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2010
Fad: Orange let uklar øl med et lille skumhoved. Duften er præget af en stor mængde maltsødme der bakker en fin humleprofil op. Smagen er igen humlet men det er maltsødmen der dominere smagsbilledet, sammen med en tilpas humlebitterhed der gør øllen meget drikbar. Fin øl.
