COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Under den ferskenfarvede skumkrone gemmer der sig en kobberfarvet øl med stor bitterhed. Her er det humlen der dominerer, med smag af citrusskal, gran og blomster. For at afbalancere humlesmagen og bitterheden er der brugt store mængder specialmalte der giver en fyldig og kompleks øl. En India Pale Ale til humleelskeren. Fort Dansbo er en fæstning i det sydlige Indien i den gamle danske koloni Trankebar.

FatPhil (9977) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 17, 2008
500ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki) - shared by MiP - thanks!
Sweet malty aroma, sticky hoppy bitterness. Very full bodied. A bit 1-dimensional with the hoppiness, but it’s not offensive. Plenty of malty body to support the hops.

Skinnyviking (7501) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle. Medium high but quickly disappearing light brown head. Hazy red brown body. Only thing I can smell here is hops. Flavor of hops of course but the smooth and oily palate makes this a bit of a bore. Aftertaste though is long with a nice hops bitterness, still very mild and a low carbonated overall impression.

thewolf (11336) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Haderslev.
Pours a deep redish brown with a big, creamy, beige-yellow head. Fine duration. Sweet, cloying, fat hoppy aroma. Lots of pine, mango, apricot, lemons and good caramel. Medium carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasantly sweet, very well-balanced caramel upon a strong, hoppy presence. Exceptional balance - wonderful beer from the ’new’ Søgaard.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 Bottle at the Brewpub. Amber/brown and cloudy color with a beige head. Aroma and taste of citrus, flowers, pine, wood and caramel. High bitterness. Much better then their Am. Pale Ale.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle @ SOPP. Dark reddish brown, nice espresso like head. Intensely hopped nose, pine, sweetish caramel malts. Nicely balanced, malts and pitchy hops. Bitter, spicy peppery finish. Medium bodied, smooth palate. A very pleasant surprise, very fresh and intense IPA.
