Martin243 (1063) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Pint at The Beer Hall Staveley. Hazy amber with a clinging white head. Lime and tropical fruit, and a hint of cat pee in the aroma. Tropical fruit, stewed tea green vine flavour. Some astringency in the finish. For me, strongly reminiscent of Oakham Green Devil IPA, and not quite achieving the true lip-smacking I had hoped. But still a very good beer.

On tap at Whats Brewing 2015, day 1. Hazy orange body, medium white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, forest fruits. Taste is bitter, tropical fruits, clean and dry. Good body without being sweet. Refreshing hoppy finish, same tropical theme lasting.

poured a deep straw colour with a dense foamy head. lots of hoppy grapefruit in the nose and plenty of hop flavour in the mouth. a powerful bitter finish. overall very drinkable, especially considering the ABV - which is barely detectable. cask, old bell tavern. harrogate

Got a bitterness thats not overpowering. Bready notes, very little head that sticks. Its a good brew, but a little disappointing.

Ungstrup (35688) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
Cask at ACBF 2012. A dark golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, lemons, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and spicy hops, leading to a dry finish where a hay note lingers.

[email protected] Tap, London. Goldeny orange colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, nectary and mild honeylike notes along with a quite nice malty balance. Flavour is being rather similar in a refreshing way. Pleasant and quite easy to drink for being 6 %.
