12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange to brown with a dense, creamy and slowly collapsing off-white head. Sweet caramel and pinewood hoppy to grapefruity hops aroma.

Ungstrup (37284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2004
[Vintage 2001 - sampled 2004] A hazy deep red beer with a small light brown disappearing head. The aroma is sweet with notes of fruit and alcohol. The flavor is fruity with notes of strawberries, without much sweetness, but a good hoppyness, that gives it a very dry end.

Orange colour with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, hops and fruit. Malty flavour with notes of fruit, that ends up with a nice and lasting bitter finish. Nice IPA.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Fat, hoppy aroma. Rather full-bodied, lightly burned caramel flavour with an underlying sweetness. Very dominated by the hop blend without being overly bitter - somewhat muddy hop character. 020706

23rd June 2008. Darkish amber beer. Hoppy but not overwhelmingly so. Occasional toffe notes in an overall sweetish creamy tone. Principly a hop beer though!

Clear amber with very pale tan head. Malty aroma with a hint of spice. Full bodied, balanced malt flavor with some pine in the background.
