Ummm a nice IPA. The color is unclear cobber with a good ivory head. Nice strong bitterness just the way i like it. elcaballo (101) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - MAY 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 A strong example of the style. Some serious hop bitterness leads to a beautifully crisp flavor. Pine and resin notes in the finish with some citrus also present in the flavor...very good Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2008
(Bottle, thanks TheSheeseMan) Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. The flavour is medium to heavily hoppy, medium malty and light fruity with tones of grapefruit, blood orange, citrus peel, mild resin, soft pine, some floral notes, white bread, toasted malt, tiny caramel, mango, pineapple and water melon. The flavour is of floral/citric/resiny hops with a heavily dry and bitter finish of pine and resin. The malt brings tones of toast, bread and a mild caramel stickiness. Light tropical hints in the background. The mouthfeel is soft and rather smooth with some harsh notes in the end from the hops. Light sweet. Lingering after bitterness. Medium bodied.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Nice hoppy aroma. The beer itself is all about hops with some seriously overpowering bitterness. Not much sweet malt to balance it out as well. If you are looking for some nice hoppy bitterness though, this is a good beer to try. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2008
Light hazy orange, amber colour with a huge off white head. Hoppy, quite piney aroma with a grapefruit note and hints of sweet malts. Extremely hoppy bitter flavor with only a light malty sweetness. Dry, piney bitter finish.

En vifte af humler giver en tilsvarende dejlig vifte af frugt, grape, floral, citrus etc. - god maltsødme som modsvar. Holder! wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Bottle...a must try for any IPA lover, but just shy of a double IPA. Beautiful reddish-gold color with light head which stays atop the beer throughout. Above average carbonation. Highly bitter, like licking a pink grapefruit sliced in half. Pine a secondary flavor. Good from beginning to end. Seems to be popular here now, as I’m seeing it in several of my regular watering holes. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2008
Bottled. Thanks to Anders Holmskär.
Clear pale amber colour with good head. Great, what we all want here, oozing aroma from the Simcoe hops, that gives mandarines and such. Good malt balance in mouthfeel with citrus and mandarine, which makes it perfectly hoppy bitter at say 60-70 IBU’s, and a good prominent hop flavour.

Pours a bright golden amber with a fairly dense half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are extremely good. This is what an IPA should look like - exceptional. Big citrus hop aromas with grapefruit, oranges and lemons playing a prominent role. There was also some grassy notes and a decent malt sweetness in the nose as well. Citrus hops are again the first item on the agenda with a stronger pine presence than I got in the aroma. There is a solid malt backbone which lends a pleasant sweetness to the taste. Unfortunately, there was a massive metallic bitterness at the finish, so this one may have been paste it’s prime. Medium bodied with some pretty good carbonation. Nice and prickly on the taste buds. I really liked this beer a lot outside of the metallic taste, which I think is freshness related. I will actively seek another bottle of this to rerate.
