It is an American Style IPA with a big, fragrant pine and citrus hop aroma balanced by the sweetness of two-row pale and caramel malt. It finishes with an additional Cascade dry-hopping creating a big hop aroma Sierra Nevada fans will look forward to. 2007-2009, discontinued 2010.

Ungstrup (29018) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2007
Have had it both draft and bottled, draft=3.2, bottled= 3.6. A hazy amber beer with a huge lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops giving it notes of grass and grapefruit on a malty back ground. The flavor is sweet and again very hoppy wigh notes of grass, straw, grapefruit, and oranges, as well as light notes of spices and alcohol, leading to a dry and very bitter finish.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of fiulijn. Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving some lacework. Fresh, citrusy nose. Medium body, lightly sweet malts and again lovely citrus and peach notes before the dry-as-a-bone finish with some bitterness. An IPA right up my alley. 171107
