Small yellow head, leaving some lace over orange-coppery beer. Orangezeste, orange marmalade, yet not overly hoppy, restrained. Mandarine Napoléon, if less sweet- (and alcoholic-)smelling. Arachide, pretty bitter hopflavour, milder on the palate thanks to some malty restsugars. Again (preserved) orangezeste & liqueurish. Wry, hopoil-dominated MF, medium bodied at best, yet slick, even oily texture. Definitely slanted, short of unidimensional, but all the same worth trying.

A Mes rate. Bottle at home thanks to Menno.Ungstrup (37601) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
Clean amber gold with a good white head. Good hoppy snout, plenty of juicy tangerine in the aroma. Load of citric bitterness that mellows out instantly thanks to the big yeasty notes. Faint meaty note but it’s not a spoiler. Decent but not amazing.
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of straw, malt, and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and fruit, leading to a bitter finish. yespr (45447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
75 cL bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty and mild orange to mango fruity. Zesty and mango fruity, tangerine too. Citric and bitter into a dry finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours deep golden with a dense off-white head leaving some laces. Sweet hoppy and perfumy nose. Medium body, a little sweet fruit and caramel. Citrusy hoppy finish, but not exactly overwhelming. 010410

Big 750ml bottle, No.165, bought at Ølbutikken and shared with Skinnyviking on an early Saturday afternoon. Pours a pale golden body under a lasting, one-finger, head, that got a brownish shade. Aromatic and fresh, sappy oranges to the nose. Sweet succulent fruits in flavour, sustained by herbal hops. A solid, but rounded, ending of dry bitterness. A well made, full-flavoured IPA (Copenhagen, 27.03.2010). Skinnyviking (9570) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle. Medium high creamy white head. Hazy orange body. Dusty dry herbal aroma. Malty hoppy fruity flavor with low carbonation and a long aftertaste. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2010
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense brownish head. Aroma of herbs, flowers, grass, light fruits and some caramel. Flavour of grape, flowers and spice. Medium to full bodied. Very heavy bitterness in the end with a light grapy touch. Very nice and wellmade. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2010

Bottle, Melger’s Wijn-en Drankenhandel, Haarlem. Drunk at Slothez’s.
Slightly hazy bronze pour with a nice lingering off white crown. Earthy, pissy hop aroma. Loads of fuit in the flavour with some lovely hoppage, again with a real earthy quality. Dug the bitterness here bigstyle. A really tasty, clean and drinkable IPA. Loved it.
