From bottle, no 25 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy orange and with a lacing white head. Hoppy aroma, slight pine and peach fruity. Perfumed flavour of hops, soapy and slight spiced. Ends with a solid bitterness lingering inbetween the mild caramel malt sweetness. Nice. Ungstrup (38249) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2007
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aorm ais sweet mlaty with strong notes of hops giving it notes of grapefruit and peaches, but the alcohol can also be senced. The flavor is sweet mlaty with notes of straw, grass, spices, and grapefruit, leading to a dry bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing. joergen (28991) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2007

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear amber, small but firm head. Striking lychee aroma with a twist of lemon. Medium sweet with compact full body and somewhat clean mouthfeel. The initial lychee like hoppiness changes to pine needles over soap and perfume and gives a powerful bitterness. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of MaltOMeal. Hazy, amber golden with a creamy, beige head. Lightly citrusy, hoppy nose. Medium body with a distinct malt sweetness and some dry, lightly citrusy aroma hops in the finish. This lacks some balls to be a truly great Double IPA. 301107 Leighton (22056) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle at the Governors Island Brewfest. Very decent DIPA, but not outstanding. Pours a rich amber with a strong, medium, white head. Strong, earthy hop aroma with rich malt tones. Mostly floral and piney hops. Flavor has a nice malt/hop balance, with sweet caramel notes then citrus, pine, grass and spice hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation and enough alcohol so you know it’s there. Good overall. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2007

Cloudy amber color, big creamy head. The aroma is fresh, hoppy, not impressive. Medium bodied, less than expected; some toffee flavor and correct bitterness, but not sweet enough fruity nor resiny. This bottle is almost one year old and strangely didn’t keep up gracefully.

cloudy amber color; creamy head. Reasonably good malt and fruity aroma, partially covered by some infection; also some sweat. Good body, good malty flavor, giving some fruitness, quite sweet, but spoiled as well by the infection. Should be tried again.

Beautiful hazy red amber color; creamy head. Strong hoppy aroma, very fruity (oranges), and with pine needles and pine resins. Medium body structure, less sweet than expected, with leading caramel flavor and a very strong bitterness (bitter orange fruitness and some resins). Good.
Dark golden-amber colour. Aroma...dude is that dirty diaper? All right, there’s bright fruits in there too but even after letting it breathe ten minutes that shit is still prevalent. By this I cannot abide. But I guess that’s why they call it Hopmouth, as a hint to skip over the whole sniffing the beer thing. Flavour is bitter, with a sweet, refreshing orange character as well, over a backdrop of earthy, chewy malts that are thankfully low on the crystal. Clean, refreshing, balanced but that aroma just ain’t my thing.
