Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2004 A nice amber beer with a small beige head. It has a fruity ale type aroma combined with notes of grass and hops. And a typical ale fruity flavor with a fine bitterness. It’s not as bitter as other american IPA’s - I like IPA’s more bitter than this.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Deep golden, orangey beer with a dense head. A pleasure to the eye. Well hopped as all traditional IPA’s with Fuggles and East Kent Goldings - classic English types. Bitterness is overwhelming to the point where this seems hard to drink. But the hops also adds beautiful aromas.

Amber. Sweet, hop dominated, rather malty, bitter. A little one-dimensional perhaps.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2003
Hazy amber color, poor head. Strange aroma, of bread. Some malt, sharp bitter character. Not impressive.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: This is my 2 IPA, and I kind of like them. The colour of the beer is like the sun on a summer evening half an hour before it sets. Light orange. The aroma is slightly hoppy but a little weak. The same goes for the flavour. A little hoppy, but too weak. I would have preffered if the aftertaste had lasted a little long. All in all a good beer, that i definately will give another try.

Me. Nothing amazing. Citrus hops comibine with some caramel malt and lead to the same flavor. Boring. But if this can educate the masses about a hoppier beer then cheers to SA.

This beer rocks. The commercial description is accurate. However, I would like to add that this beer is pretty complex. Very interesting. Very well hopped with a very enjoyable and interesting undertone that I could not identify. Maybe one of the special malts. Jim does it again. A very very good IPA.

Bottle. Nice golden orange colour. Pours a big white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity. The flavour is dry, hoppy and fruity with some citrus to it. The finish is hoppy spicy and long lasting. Another great beer from Boston Brewing. My thanks to the Snows for sharing many of these with them.
