Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2010
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma has notes fo hops, grass, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits as well as medium notes of malt and yeast, leading to a dry bitter finish. Very raw in its interpretation. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours deep golden with a slight haze and a dense off-white head. Juicy and peachy American aroma hops. Medium body, very very fruity, some leathery and peachy accents and an almost astringent bitterness. A good IPA - if not exactly an IIPA. 150610

Hazy deep amber beer. Thick frothy off white head. The head gives a hit of fresh lime hops. Palate is light, soft and dry and the head makes it airy. Light soft caramel malt is a base for hops that impart lime, pine with grapefruit and orange in the background. Finishes light and frothy and with more fresh hop. A delightful DIPA.
