Dogbrick (12587) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2005 Rerate 12/14/05: The bottled version of this beer agrees with me a litte more. Copper color with a thick and fluffy off-white head. Thick sheets of lacing too. Grassy, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied and with a decent floral hops character, as well as a fair amount of malt. The finish is moderately hoppy. Straightforward and pretty enjoyable.

11/12/02 (2.4): Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Light amber color with minute head. Hops aroma that was difficult to detect. This seemed watered-down and nothing special to me. I like more hops in my APAs.

thewolf (12371) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle, bought @ lkonsortiet, Aalborg. Pours a deep golden with a big creamy-ish white head. Aroma is mildly sweet hoppy. Some caramel and slight fruity hops. Lively mouthfeel. Flavour has a nice hoppyness, slight pale-ish malty sweetness behind it. Not that terribly dry. A very competent brew, but a little underwhelming.

Sammy (11824) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2005
Aroma of Very citrussy grapefruit, floral, piney, with carmel and malts. Juicy hop and fruity, with bitter aftertaste. Certainly not a lot of malting, more IPA and can pass as one. light golden yellow with a bit of froth. Understated carbonation.

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
Bottled: Light amber coloured. Light beige head. Very malty aroma. Some sweetness and fruit is there. Buttery and sweet in the flavour. Is ligth hopped which leads into a light bitterness in the end. An average beer, thats not offending anyone. Even great brewers makes beers, that are less than divine.

"4 month old bottle (still hope to land a fresher one) but its hard to tell if the hops are subdued to to age or the style. GDs signature malt bill is there, which is always nice, though this is a little more maltcentric than id prefer. some grapefruit and bitter hops make an appearance, though, and the feel which started thin grew lively. not bad, but not great."

Clear amber colour with tiny white head. Fresh fruity American hops with malt in aroma. No bitterness. Flavour is strong fruity American hops combined with malty body. No real bitterness here either. Very drinkable.
