BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle: Pours a misty orange color with a huge retentive white head with thick billowy piles of lacing. The nose is spicy with herbal noble hops, moderate pine and citrus and a light yeast note. The flavor is balanced; minerally dry pale malt contrasted by a light bitterness. Very herbal and tasty. Finishes moderately bodied with a continuation of the hop notes where you’re pulled back to the beginning.

ExpendableHero (787) - Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Hazy yellow beer with a white head. Noticeable sediments floating about. Very nice aromas of woodland pine and citrus. The taste is a bit bland, some pine hops mixed in with coriander peel. There is also a unique smokiness in here as well. Other than that not as hoppy as other IPAs, which for me is always a plus. Easy drinking, smooth IPA.

Ungstrup (30994) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of hops, grass, oranges, alcohol, and lemons. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, oranges, and hops, leading to a dry and bitter finish where a fruit note lingers.

500ml Bottle: Aroma of hops, light caramel malt, Earth, slight pine, and light citrus. Poured amber in color with a medium to large-sized creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished greatly but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of tiny and small particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, slight astringent, malt, grass, light pine, and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Oily, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Hops, malt, grass finish is lightly sweet, medium bitter, and lightly dry. I bet this was better when it was much fresher. 7.7%ABV is pretty well hidden throughout.
