yngwie (13399) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2006
Bottled at Plain Kitchen, Gothenburg. Pours clear, golden-orange, with a small, off-white head. Fruity hops, pine, resin and tropical fruits in the aroma. The flavor is citrusy and fruity, with mango, hops and pine. Slightly astringent, medium body. For a English ESB, it is very well hopped. Almost too hop-dominated. (060824)

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy amber with a creamy head. Citrusy and hoppy nose. Medium-bodied with a slight touch of caramel but everything is overpowered by a very distinct, citrusy hoppiness that also leaves a more than solid bitterness. A bit too raw bitterness for my liking. 240806

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2006
<!-- i -->Bottled<!-- /i --> (BB 10/2006).<!-- br --> A bit hazy copper brown, off-white head. Strong flowery hoppy nose. Medium bodied, resin flavors. Very hoppy, strong bitterness in the aftertaste. But as being "only" 5,5% - extremely drinkable. I suppose that this IPA is made for American markets.

henrikb (1258) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2006
Draught – Dark golden body, very small white head; Very nice hoppy nose – the British way; Bitter body with a very sharp carbonation; Bitterness is exploding in finish that is very hoppy dry, lots of aroma but 100% hopsack. Strange beer, quite unbalanced and quite extreme (particularly for a UK brew)

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Light amber with a rather large foamy off-white head. THe aroma is floral hops and some wee bits of malt. The flavor is quite hoppy with little malt backing. THe palate is fizzy and thin. Quaffable and I do dif the hop profile just wish it had a bit more malt backbone to it. IMO, this should ne an IPA and not an ESB but I defer to the Brits that classified it as such.
