Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy orangey color ale with a big white foamy head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus hops is well balance with big caramel malt. Taste is a mix between sweet malt with some citrus and bitter hops. Body is above average and the beer is not filtered which I appreciated. flemdawg (561) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2006
First rating in a while, I’m a little nervous. Hazy reddish yellow body with a slightly off white head made of huge bubbles. This on literaly got me in the face. I grabbed the wrong bottle opener and put a tiny hole in the cap and the stuff sprayed all over the kitchen and me. Luckily my dog was there to help with the clean up. Anyway to the aroma. Hoppy for sure piney and citrus, with floral notes in there as well. Just a bit of malt for excitement too. The flavor was lots of piney hops too, but not overpoweringly so. The malts at the end made for a nice balance. Quite a tasty brew. lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2006
Bottle at Monks Cafe (Sthlm). Assertive hops all the way.. Citrus and pine dominate. Not much else going on though. But that’s perfectly allright by me. chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Clean and crisp despite citrus and piney notes with satisfying hoppy bitter bit. I like the heavy orange/mango note. Super IPA rane (1060) - Nibe, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2006
Coppery red colour and off white long lasting head. Aroma with notes of citrus, hops and pine. Nice taste dominated of hops and sweet in the end. Not as bitter as some IPAs but very good.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2007 Coppery hue, off-white and lasting head. Completely ridiculous bitter fruit aroma, pine, almond and caramel present also. Heavy grapefruit flavor even produces an acidic mouthfeel. Crushingly bittersweet finish. A lovely display of power and delicacy. Wonderful. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2006
beautiful copper color. milky white bubbles on top. heavy hop aroma of citrus. HEAVY IBU BITTERNESS flavors of grapefruit. long lasting hop finish. KPMycoskie (15) - USA - SEP 11, 2006
Draught. Great amber color. Incredible hop aroma. Starts bitter and finishes sweet. AND bitter. Like a hoppy holiday in my mouth. Wild4mild (38) - USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bottle. Gift from Thaichile. Deep red color with an off white creamy head that leaves considerablr lace from start to finish. Huge nose of hoppy fruit. I would like a little more maltiness, but I guess that isn’t what you are supposed to get with this style. That being said, it is one of the better IPA’s that I’ve ever had the pleasur of tasting. raphael (1239) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Pleasantly hppy aroma, quite tangy, tickles my nose hairs, a slight swetnes maybe jsu sugested by the white foam, htin but lasting. good blaanced mouth feel, neither thick nor thin. appearance slightly cloudy. i thin th e malt sweetness is blanced well but the flavor the hops seems a little blurry, unsure.
