UPDATED: JUL 8, 2011 2011-02-01, bottle at rsted, Copenhagen, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Beautiful dark amber color; small head. Its a solid IPA, almost double, with a lot of Crystal malt and toffee flavor; bitter, resiny, coreect balance, unfortunately both the aroma and flavor dont show a fresh hopping (the bar received the bottles just a few days ago).

2010-05-05, draught at Mikkeller Bar, opening night, 7-4-7-5-15=38
Hazy red-amber color. Light aroma of Manuka honey, sweetish, malt. Good perfumy toffee flavor; strong hopping, good resins and hop oils. Good and straight, but missing some dynamicity.

2007-09-29, draught at Hop Leaf, Chicago, 7-4-8-5-16=40
Beautiful amber color; thin creamy head. Quite good body strength, very good malt and toffee flavor, sweet. The aroma is citrusy and resiny. Excellent aromatic hopping and with the necessary sweet body. Excellent.

Koelschtrinker (19735) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Muffig hopfig, gleichsam auch malziger Antrunk. Der Hopfen wird zwar strker, bleibet aber muffig, das malz wird dagegen schwcher. Das Bier insgesamt ist in Ordnung, wirkt aber auch wegen der Trockenheit eintnig. Erdig zum Ende, eine leichte Whiskeynuance ist vorhanden. Geht in Ordnnung. 7/9/8/9/10/8

My most highly sought after beer for a number of years. Thanks to Cgarvieuk for bringing this one down from Scotland. Cheers Craig. Hazy reddish russet colour, thin beige head. Toffee and hop aroma. Yes big intense resiny grapefruit hop in the mouth. Wow thats pretty big and awesome. Is it as good as I was hoping? Its different. Its big hoppy and toffeeish so very much in the American mould of an IPA I would say rather than an APA. Certainly tastes fresh on the hops. Yes very drinkable at same time. No real heat. Toffee is really quite pleasant. Good beer, but when you set your impression so high, its hard to live up to it. Thanks Craig. Now which beer becomes my most wanted now?
