cloudy brown, smooth offwhite head. 3 mild aroma, slighly grassy and herbal. 6 flavor is citrussy, exotic fruits, malty, bitterness is sort of herbal, green tea. Christian (14106) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2011
Odense single hop extravaganza May 16 2011. Clear amber beer with a lasting off-white head. Very weak aroma with grassy and herbal notes. Clean, but plain slightly herbal flavour. Clearly not an IPA hop... GAManiac (1946) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2011
11.2oz bottle tasted alongside Amarillo and Willamette versions.
Pours hazy golden amber with a nice thick beige head that recedes to a thick cap. It’s not got the eye-catching look of the Amarillo but it’s good looking enough.
Aroma is very tame with only hints of hop aromas and it’s mostly lemongrass and faint earthy notes. The biscuity malts are more evident than in the other versions, largely due to the hops being less prominent.
The taste is just a tad better and has a more prominent floral character, maybe some pine but also a bit of actual flowers. The malts are noticeable and the finish is crisp.
The mouthfeel is a tad watery compared to the other two versions, lighter carbonation and body.
This is one of the IPAs in the series that I don’t think quite stands up on its own. Not much better than an average IPA for me. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Tap at Blind tiger for the single hop event - dry with pine needle hops. Sweet caramel malts. Fairly unremarkable.. don’t think they showcased this hop very well. sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011

Very round and sweet aroma, a bit stale unfortunately. Fruit notes with passion fruit dominating. Grass in the taste, slightly astringent. Pronounced bitterness.
Bottle. A clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, off-white fingerthick head. Lacings. Caramel and a generic fruityness tending towards banana. Caramel borderline butterscotch and a herbal touch. Smooth as hell, dry and lightly warming. Pleasant bitterness and fruityness in the flavor. Overall, drinkable indeed, but not my favorite in any way. 110908 Magnini (22) - ITALY - APR 19, 2011
@Brasserie 4:20, single hop dalla scarsa personalità, al gusto risulta stantia e modesta. Malto appena percettibile. chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Draft... Medium orange with a bright big off white head... Light orange rind, malt with a touch of bo... Easy to drink oranges with a light wet dog note... So so michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
