COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2006
Bottle conditioned. A hazy yellow beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is quite light with primary notes of citrus, while the flavor is sweet malty with a light touch of citrus, leading to a dry and very bitter end. Nice UK IPA.

Cloudy gold beer. Smooth tasty IPA. A little grapefruit bitterness in the finish but overall this is a refreshing IPA.

4th March 2010
Tap at pre ZBF. Crisp palate but quickly turns soft. Lovely fruity hops but there is a detrimental whisper of sulphur.

7th December 2013
Bottle thanks to the ever thoughtful Ian Harrison. Cheers Ian! Hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. The malt is light and has a little cream. Very good citric hops. Fresh and medium bitter. Zesty orange, orange peel and a little lemon. Light tangerine. Finishes crisp with a good bitter linger. Clean and well balanced for the style and very refreshing.

Deep blond color. The aroma shows strong hop, grassy and papery. Medium bodied, with dry caramel flavor, toffee and quite strong hopping. Strong ending bitterness. Very British.

2006-11-06, Cask Conditioned at Charlie’s Pub, Copenhagen; sold as Jaipur IPA, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Hazy blond color. Very nice hop aroma, quite earthy, but also fruity. Lovely taste, clean malt, lots of aromatic hops, both fruity (oranges, citrus fruits, grapefruit…) and floral (with some elderflower as well); fudge. The final is less aromatic; it’s soft because of the malt, and with a strong bitterness with a lot of hop oils; again traces of elderflower.
