Ungstrup's rating

3.1
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
Ungstrup (38384) - Citizen of the universe, - MAY 22, 2013
Draft. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of hops, alcohol, fruits, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, caramel, citrus fruits, and alcohol, leading to a dry finish.

visionthing (5532) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 16, 2017
33cl bottle from Sip, Tallinn. Pours clear deep golden with a moderate, white head. Herbal hoppy aroma with pine, citrus peel, grass and some fruity notes. Medium sweet with medium flavour intensity and a solid bitterness. Strong, bitter, flavourful and quite enjoyable.

3.2
theprof (1236) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2017
Tap at the Canal House. Pours amber body thin white lace top. Aroma of plums on the turn, herbs, earthy, roasted malts. Taste is medium medium sweetness, medium bitterness, slightly salty, and very obviously alcoholic (it didn't need a boost from 8.4% really). Palate suffers: Still medium bodied, but the texture is sticky, and the carbonation is edging up beyond average, finish is more burn than bitter. Get your act together Buxton or go back to the ranch.

bonev (967) - POLAND - SEP 15, 2017
Piwo lekko metne w kolorze bursztynowym nalewa sie z niezbyt obfita warstwa sredniopecherzykowej piany. W aromacie dojrzale owoce egzotyczne, troche karmelu i rodzynek. Intensywna sosnowa goryczka i wysycenie na srednim poziomie.

dojken (659) - SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2017
Flaska Muris. Mycket blött gräs med sötma o pepprighet. Smaken söt med peppar.smak. Nejhe inte jättebra men ok.

4.3
colui72 (1098) - HONG KONG - JUL 22, 2017
Pours hazy golden / orange, with a finger of white head and creamy sticky lacing. Piney to the nose, with notes of ale malts, citrus and tropical fruits. Strong bitterness on the attack, then caramel, resin, pine, grapefruit, mango and again a long bitter finish. Creamy, full body, soft carbonation, an excellent DIPA full of flavour.

drjoeng (1380) - SINGAPORE - MAY 1, 2017
9%ABV. Double IPA. Poured out amber. 14 SRM. Nose has ripe pineapple, malty sweet funk. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has a sweet sour roundedness to it that suggests fruitiness. Malt palate is honey grahams. Hops: resin, pine sap, pine needles, strong resin and bitter melon. Finish is medium-long and bitter melon. Goes on favorites list!
