COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Überhoppy Imperial IPA: Hops, hops glorious hops! There is no mistaking what this beer is; soft and delicate it is not. Überhoppy is meant to completely overwhelm you with resinous, floral, citrus and herbal hops barely balanced by a huge amount of malt that keeps the Lupulin onslaught from resulting in complete palate destruction. If you do not like hops, Überhoppy is NOT the beer for you, do us all a favor and either give this beer to someone with the intestinal fortitude to appreciate it or put it down and walk away. Überhoppy is brewed with 10 different hop varieties and a complete and utter disregard for common logic or sanity. Please consume this beer as soon as possible to ensure maximum hop freshness. Approximately 9.5% ABV.

<i>[ Trade by Papsoe ].</i> Unclear hazy medium orange color with a small, virtually none appearance, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, heavy hoppy, resin, orange, wood pine. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration and a peppery - alcoholic very dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily - sticky, carbonation is flat. (300808)

Thanks to aspidites for this - although someone else poured it. Hazy brown with a lacing tan head. Aroma is caramel and dense pinewood hoppy with a minor note of grapefruit. Flavour is dense hoppy and thick malty - sweet, solid brew. Very flavourful indeed. Grapefruity and solid bitter into the finish. Fantastic flavour.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a big orange head - due to high carbonation. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of both hops and caramel. The flavor is sweet and very malty, that combines fine with strong notes of hops - and lesser notes of oranges. The body is powerful, making it thickly floating thru the mouth - the alcohol shows up in the end leaving a slight burn in the top of the throat. Thanks to Rene and Oakes for supplying me with the opportunity to try this.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of KrausenJockey/aspidites. Pours a hazy, reddish, amber golden with a gigantic, lively, off-white head leaving laces. Aroma of caramel and hops. Quite full-bodied with lots of caramel and fruity aroma hops. The finish is dry. I could perhaps have wished for even more fruit in the hops. 310507

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled (thanks omhper). Dark copper coloured, small off white head. Aroma of beautifully balanced hops. Flavour of a lot of hops and fruits. Mago and nectarine all the way through. A bit harsh grassiness starts to show, so Per was most likely right about that this may be on it’s way going bad... Except for the harsh grassyness underneath, very lovely!

joergen (19665) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2006
Handbottled. Hazy brown coloured with a huge beige head. Aroma of citrus, hops and pine needles. Sweet flavour of dried fruits, hops, pine needles and grape fruits.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2006
Bottled. Clear brownish amber. Fresh juicy lychheelike hop aroma. Medium dry with soft rounded mouthfeel. Beautiful, solid malt character underneath a wellpointe lacquer of hops. Extremely hop aromatic, but the 150 IBU doesn’t hurt that much at all, instead the bitterness is just pleasant. Extremely drinkable for it’s size.

Bottle. THanks to DSG. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. Has a grassy hoppy bitter aroma with some hints of caramel. Malty hoppy bitter grassy flavor with hints of grapefruit. Has a long hoppy bitter grapefruit finish with a long bitter aftertaste.

Hazy amber beer. Little white bubbly head. Rich grapefruit hop nose with some odd sweet emulsion paint. Smooth dry palate. Rich marmalade grapefruit hops - help back by that odd milky sweet paint thing. Before the dry finish the hops turn spicy. Underpinned by toffee malt. A little off the wall but decent.
