yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2007
75 cL bottle, thanks to Storm. Pours hazy orange with a little white lacing head. Aroma is quite grapefruity and dry. Flavour is quite hoppy dry with a slight malt base. Very minor malty sweetness. Ends in a fruity note. But overall way too dry and somewhat without balance to be fantastic.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2007

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of boboski. Hazy, pale amber golden with a small, off-white head. Fat, citrusy hop nose. Quite full-bodied with lightly sweet caramel and then this distinct, overpowering, fat and citrusy hoppiness that leaves a solid bitterness. Dry as a bone and not the most balanced example of a hop bomb (well, they rarely are...). 280907

Theis (12760) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle at Sune - thanks. Unclear red/amber - offwhite head. Candy, vingummi, high hoppy, high resin, cactus, eraser (the strawberrie or raspberrie flavored kind from my young schooldays), strawberries, red berries, raisins, perfumed. Lasting bitter finish. A bit strange !!!

yngwie (12683) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. Pours an almost clear, golden body with an off-white head. Heavy aroma with malt and beefstock, pine, resin and some citrus. The flavor is sure hoppy, with pine, resin and some citrus, as well as a good maltyness. I could wish for a more evident maltyness though. Full body. Even though I would like some more malty flavor, it’s a really good one. Really good. (080118)
