Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2008
(Bottle) Pours golden with an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with tones of grapefruit, orange, grass and some flowers and fruity with tones of peach, melon and apricot. The maltiness is sweet, bready, cookie-ish, mild caramel, honey and hints of hay. Hints of sulphur and vanilla as well. The flavour is heavily grapefruity and resiny hoppy with a sweet malt backdrop. Some tropical fruitiness. Medium sweet. The finish is heavily resiny hoppy with lingering hay like malt. The mouthfeel is sharp, yet soft. A bit too much alcohol both in the aroma and flavour. Medium bodied.

Plovmand (7986) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
Bottle. Golden clear colour with white head. Flowers and hops in the nose and lots of grass and hops in the flavour. A bit too heavy at the finish.

madsberg (11613) - Sborg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2008
Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Fluffy off white head. Sweetness, fruits, pine, flowers and spice in the aroma. Flavour is very herbal and piney. Has loads of spice, a tad of alcohol and some notable sweetness. Quite balanced. Medium to full bodied. Is medium to heavy bitter in the end, but a touch of sweetness balance this. Very nice.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2008
Pours out in a clear golden colour with a rich white foam. Sharp, almost acidic aroma of green apples and grapefruit. Hmmm. . Almost shockingly hoppy flavour of grapefruit, wet grass and pine without almost no residual sugars at all. Medium to full bodied. Long bitter finish of wet grass, sweat and lemon. Not your typical US Impy IPA, quite weird, but still charming.

RichardGretton (4698) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2008
[email protected] Winter Beer Festival, 2008. Golden beer with a syrupy sweet aroma and a syrupy and quite bitter flavour. Overall an average beer.

rane (1047) - Nibe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle. Dark golden colour with small long lasting head. Quite pale for an IIPA, but I guess there is no norm for the way it looks. Aroma grass, hopps, citrus and some malt below. Taste full body. In the beginning (1 -2 seconds) it is very malty and then the hopps takes over and the beer becomes quite bitter and very dry. A nice beer, and given 0.1 extra for the label. Drunk by one man with wife, children and 10 cats.

sunevdj (4013) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2008
Pours a clear dark yellow with a small white head. Light sweetness and quite bitter. Aromas of some hops and a bit of wool. Big alcohol aroma too. Medium to full bodied and slightly oily. Not so good.

thewolf (12274) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph. Pours a beautiful clear golden copper-like with a small white-ish head. Average lacing. Aroma is heavily fruity hoppy, lots of oranges, pineapple and grapefruit. Quite low carbonation, somehow oily mouthfeel. Flavour is initially quite sticky sweet, then suddenly turns heavily hoppy. Not only that, it is very bitter as well. Pine, pineapple, caramel, apples, elderberries and very, very dry. Somehow Brewdog manages to merge the American and British IPA into something far more potent. Still prefer the elegance and puntuality of the Punk IPA.
