Ungstrup (34334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is lovely hoppy with notes of alfa acids and oranges, as well as light floral notes - A hop soup aroma. The flavor is sweet with alchol, that jumps at You right from the start with a slight burning sensation on the tongue, but it is soon acompaniet by strong hoppy notes, and a bitterness that sets in much earlier than in other beers and grows more and more powerful. Acompanying the bitterness there’s also a note of grapefruit that grown in intensity. The body is very powerful.

Draught at O’Brien’s, San Diego. Clear deep golden, no head. Massive grapefruity hop aroma. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel and loads of perfumy hops. Striking bitter finish. A hop monster with finesse (and a fair bit of alcohol.)

Growler courtesy of tarheels86, thank you sir. Clear amber color, white head, nice lacing. Aroma of pine cones and white pepper. Taste is bitter throughout, some citrus, decent balance. Others at the tasting complained regarding freshness, but I enjoyed this one thoroughly.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2016
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear orange-gold with a slender, frothy white head. The nose has a lot of piney hops, pale bread, tangerine, light grass. Medium sweet flavor with some juicy melon, tangerine, light piney bitterness, peach, alcohol. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish, lightly resinous, with lots of juicy citrus fruits, tangerine, some grapefruit, nips of boosty alcohol, orange, mango, mellow bitter grass and citrus rind. Well, it’s very good, and very drinkable, but there are more expressive ’imperial’ IPAs out there nowadays. Still, I can appreciate that this is juicy and drinkable stuff.
