[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.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 2011-02-01, bottle at Ørsted, Copenhagen, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Beautiful dark amber color; small head. It’s a solid IPA, almost double, with a lot of Crystal malt and toffee flavor; bitter, resiny, coreect balance, unfortunately both the aroma and flavor don’t show a fresh hopping (the bar received the bottles just a few days ago).

2010-05-05, draught at Mikkeller Bar, opening night, 7-4-7-5-15=38
Hazy red-amber color. Light aroma of Manuka honey, sweetish, malt. Good perfumy toffee flavor; strong hopping, good resins and hop oils. Good and straight, but missing some dynamicity.

2007-09-29, draught at Hop Leaf, Chicago, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Beautiful amber color; thin creamy head. Quite good body strength, very good malt and toffee flavor, sweet. The aroma is citrusy and resiny. Excellent aromatic hopping and with the necessary sweet body. Excellent.
