Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2011

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle 65 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque orangey golden with a dense off-white head. Distinct peachy hop aroma - wauw, this is serious. Medium body, a light fruity sweetness quickly relieved by a heavy and astringent hop finish that really dries out my mouth. A little too brutal and one-dimensional. 120511

5th August 2010. GBBF.
Hazy gold beer. Little white suddy head. Light semi dry palate. Very hoppy but surprisingly not that bitter. Grapefruit, pine grass, orange, peach - it’s all going on here. Finishes dry. Nice IPA. Lots of hop flavour. Very little hop bitterness.

Cloudy light amber color; generous creamy head. Strong aroma, hoppy, fruity: peaches, citrus fruits; some cream too, a good touch of Citra; a sweaty touch too, later. Strong toffee flavor, some caramel, very moderate residual sweetness; the hop is very resiny, with strong bitterness, and some fruity presence, like bitter orange peel.
Quite fresh, well constructed, powerful but not cloying.
