33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow/orange with a white head. Peach fruity and solid caramel malt flavour. Sweet malt flavour, slight dark towards mild smoked. Fruity hops lingering on top and lifting the brew up. Nice balance. Solid bitterness into the finish. Very nice. Ungstrup (38902) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2007
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is very sweet and very hoppy, the hops giving it notes of elderberrises and grass - reminds me of first gold hops. The flavor is very sweet - with strong notes of caramel, and with a good mouthfeel. But it lacks bitterness, which in turn makes it a bit sticky in the mouth - give it more bittering hops and it’ll be great. joergen (29598) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007

Bottled (thanks cgarvieuk!). Deep golden colour, not much head. Aroma is bigtime hops, some very diacetyliclike toffee mixed with grass and a bit hay. Flavour is big hops and toffeeish notes. Also some slight spicyness is noted. Seems like the bottle was infected? Goes on my "to-be-re-rated" list. 4 3 4 3 8

Anchor, Helsinki. Deep golden colour, with mediumsized white head. Aroma is a lot of fruity and flowery hops along with some mild spicyness. Flavour is quite much fruity and flowery hops along with some mild grass and spices. Well balanced and pleasant, and hides the alcohol well.
Appearance was floodwater muddy brown with a slight tan head and a bit of lacing.
Smell was freshly mown grass and a hint of orange peel.
Taste was hos, hops, hops. Dry and bitter with a hint of malt but dominant hops, very long finish with slight black pepper.
Not too over the top, a good example of an American style IPA. madmitch76 (26368) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2009

Bottled at Blackfriars, Glasgow. Pale amber. Heavy grapefruit aroma. Sweet malt dried out by severe amounts of sweaty grapefruity hops. Dense and caramelly with notes of gooseberries. Resiny very bitter finish. A but aggresive and on the sweet side.
