Bottle: dark amber with red highlights, light tan head, clear body. This is one of the best hop aromas I have smelled. Fresh, juicy hops, grapefruit, floral notes, grass, some caramel malty notes. Taste doesn’t hide the fact that it’s been heavily laden with hops. Initially biting and bitter, yet fresh and crisp, this beer attacks your taste buds. Loads of hops, with some caramel, grain malt in the background somewhere. One of the best in this style for sure. Only negatives - slightly watery mouthfeel, could be more full bodied. Also, I respect hops, but I’d like to see just a bit more malt backbone to go with the body. Very good.

Orangey red with an off-white head. Nose is candi sugar, grapefruity, rich malt, tart & tini candies. Flavor is grainy/husky citrus hop, some fruitiness. Well done on the malt, slightly past toasted. Finish is grapefruity pine, earthy. An awsome IPA

Ungstrup (32182) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
[GABF 2004] A clear orange beer with a small orange head. It has a great hoppy aroma with notes of oil. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and loads of hops. The hops lends it grassy notes and a very hoppy dry finish and lots of bitterness. The body is surprisingly weak.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
Amber/orange coloured. Hoppy and fruity aroma. Very refreshing. Grassy, dry and slightly light finish. A great thirst quencher.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Very strong hop aroma, citrus, herbs and tobacco, very good! Pours orange to amber body with a medium airy white head. Very nice hop flavor, very refreshing, but a bot too watery. Wish i had this beer as my everyday beer!

madsberg (11166) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
Bottled: Orange golden coloured. Light brown medium head. Well lasting. Flowers, herbs and hops in the nose. Goood. Is very well hopped in the flavour. Citric and flowery. Is a little thin in the body, but ends on a very nice long lasting sweet bitterness. Quite refreshing. Good one.

grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2004 An excellent american pale ale. Truly fabulous. Could be drunk in volumes. Tobbacco, copper. Treacly, sticky grey green, dull brown head. Notes of subtle apricot, brandy and an abundance of hops. Amariillos methinks. Voluminously subtle and yet breathtakingly aromatic all at once. All of these flavors translate into the palate. However they are not paled over by some rudely cantankerous tyrant malt, or hop or yeast. Much rather they lie down sweetly with one another and are committing indecent acts on my strongest muscle. These flavors come first. Next an ample hop punch cuts my cheeks in twain. Overwhelmingly bitter. However it retains an element of subtlety in that the malt is aromatic and sweet enough to carve the bitterness into perfection. This is one masterful brew. G-rat

sdcourtney (56) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Wonderful citrus aroma - lemon/orange. Creamy and rocky long-lasting head, with bubbles still on sides of glass after I’m finished. Citrus hop flavor is again lemon/orange - crisp and clean with nice bitterness. Medium body with palate starting off creamy, then a blossom of bitterness, followed by a slow bitterness fade that is still there long afterwards.

Copper Coloring Witih Good Head. Aroma of Citrus and Hops. As is the Flavor. Fruity and Very Hoppy, Yet Not Extremely Over Powering. A little Dry, but Not Enough Where You’re Looking for Another Beer Right Away. Very Charactable Pale Ale.
