MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Cask, 7.7% at Borefts 2011. 2009 version. Mild fruity aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Good fruity flavour, some creamy notes. Hop and alcohol bitterness, a bit rough, but not bad. Could have done with less alcohol.

2009 Cask @ BBF2011. Blonde. Grassy citric hops in the aroma. Firm citric hopbitter flavor with hints of melon. Earthy grassy notes. Good!

Dedollewaitor (15109) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2011
Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival, 2011. Pours cloudy golden with a small off white head. Fruity and hoppy. Grape, lemon and pine. Smooth and dry. Good.

TheRealMGD (552) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Cloudy gold pour, bright white head leaves a moderate lacing on the glass. Strong floral and citrus (orange) nose with the hops receding in the mouth. Medium body flavored by fruits, cheese and a grassy bitterness. Very different from an American/West Coast IPA and I don’t believe it’s traveled well in the bottle. Would love to try this one on tap in the UK as it shows every sign of being a winner when fresh!

pintocb (648) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Cloudy orange. Piney aroma. Great, oily mouthfeel. Great IPA! Hides the ABV well.

Ulfada (257) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Pours a hazy golden with a nice white head that lasts. Floral aroma. Resinous hop flavor with a nice touch of bitterness that lingers slightly. A very nice mild IPA.

Bottle shared by Jan (Euston Tap) with Harrisoni and myself. Cheers Jan! Hazy gold beer, tidy white persistent head. Softish semi dry palate. Lovely balance. Very light malt. Mellow but tasty hops - mild grapefruit with orange and a little peach. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Very nice.

Looks like dirty lemonade in a glass with heavy sediment, the aroma is an equal mix of fresh hops and a citrus/lemon background. The flavor is big on the lemon and citrus and is rather dry, although the hop bite to it is sneaky and makes its presence in the finish. Overall a very good IPA, rather unique in its taste profile, although that could be due to the way it was brewed.
