Ungstrup (29333) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2007
A slightly hazy orange beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops and quite a lot of fruit. The flvaor is sweet with notes of peaches and oranges as well as a grassy hop note, leading to a dry hoppy end. The body is a bit thin.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2007
Cask@GBBF2007. Deep orange colour, with mediumsized white head. Aroma is quite fruity and malty, with some slight spicyness notes. Flavour is what I would call tropical juice mixed in with some slight caramel malts and also some hints of grass and more bittering hops. A pleasant thing.

6th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Sweetish IPA - not much bitterness. Slightly dissapointed there was not more to this after the lovely Tokyo Black earlier in the year but decent nontheless.

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2007
Cask gravity at GBBF 07. Really, really lovely hop. One of my favourite beers of the first day. Really drinkable. I thought it had great malt hop balance. Drinkable to the extreme, apparently, or so my notes say.
