COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed using a blend of English malts. Magnum hops are used for the early hop addition, with Goldings for finishing and dry hopping. A very flavorful and hoppy ale.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
[At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] An amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with notes of straw and hops - without being extreme. The flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel and straw. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear, amber golden with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Medium body with weak notes of caramel. A whiff of pineapple perhaps? Some aroma hops, but I don’t really find the hops clean, crisp or citrusy. Extremely dry, hoppy finish. 110606

fiulijn (14538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle, 2007-06-16, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Beautiful amber color. The aroma is too light. Good body structure, good malt taste and very strong hopping, with resins and very light fruitness. Long final.

Draught at Cricket’s Grill, Waco, 2006-12-22, 6-4-7-5-15=37
Beautiful amber color, head and lace. Simple aroma. Good taste, full bodied, malty, with a reasonably strong hopping (having some resins, but also lightly earthy). Very long final. Midway between an English and an American IPA; good.
