Ungstrup (37576) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2010
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has strong notes of grass, grapefruits, and hops as well as medium notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and malt combined with lots of hops, grapefruit, and citrus fruits as well as hints of hay.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2009
On tap. Clear amber golden with an off-white head. Fresh peachy aroma. Quite full-bodied, lots of caramel and fruit and again distinct peachy hops that leave a solid dose of bitterness. 080709

Very hazy orange - amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and has a fine minerally crispness. Light malts, pleasant light sweetness. Decent hop spice into cooling pine. Little fresh orange and tangerine and their respective peel. FInishes fairly dry and pithy. It’s a decent DIPA for sure but there are many better around.

Tap at PB Tap Room. Deep golden color. Tons of pine and freshly mown grass in the aroma. Taste has moderate bitterness with pine resin. Nice.

Cloudy orange to light amber color. The aroma is very fruity, there are citrus fruits, grapes, hop resins and a strong flowery component. The mouthfeel is drier than the average DIPA, with a toasty malt background, lightly biscuity, followed by strong bitterness, hop resins, less fruitiness.
Very good.

mcberko (17828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
On tap at Apex in Portland, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral, soapy and citrusy hops, with some light fruit. Flavour is very floral and citrus heavy, kind of soapy, with barely enough caramel malt to balance. Finishes floral and soapy. Very well-made.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden amber color with a thin white head on top. S: The nose has plenty of fresh grapefruit and other citrus hops. There is a bit of pine and a touch of sweet malt. T: The hops provide a real fruity character to the beer with lots of grapefruit and pineapple but do not think this is a sweet IPA. There is a ton of bitter, resinous, piney hop flavor as well. M: The body is medium to full with a moderate carbonation. D: This is actually one of the better DIPAs I’ve had. A fantastic amount of bitterness along with almost no alcohol presence.

Benzai (15607) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2014
Sampled @ RBBSG III. Clear orange golden color, medium sized white head. Aroma is malts, hops, lightly resin, quite fruity. Tastes the same and I love it: malts, lots of hops, lightly resin, fruity, bitter. Medium body and carbonation.

3.5
Ferris (15272) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle - Lots of grapefruit and tropical notes. Clear gold with a rich beige head. Grapefruit bitterness, malty light sweetness and a clean finish. On the sweet side but still nice.
