UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 Sample from tap at the brewpub. Pours slight hazy orange/brown. Aroma of grapes, fruit and floral. Flavour is floral, citric and sweet. Goes into a caramel and bitter blend in the finish. Good ipa. Cask is much more lively in the aroma and strong addition on flavour too, also in the malt profile.7-3-7-4-15equals3.6br

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops, elderflowers, grass, and grapefruit, as well a lighter notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, spicy hops, and elderflowers, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Travlr (26246) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Growler courtesy of tarheels86, thank you sir! Dark golden color, small white head. Intense grass aroma, nice taste, with aroma favored rather than bitterness.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2008
(Hand bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of BrianK. Pours an almost clear amber golden with a handsome, off-white head leaving laces. Rather fat and oily hop aroma with peachy accents. Medium body with some caramel, a weird ashy note and a very dry and very bitter hoppy finish. 190608

mcberko (19177) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
Growler sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a beautiful, fairly clear, red-tinted amber (sort of like a rosé), with a medium white head. Nose bursts of rich resinous hops, fresh pine tree, coniferous, and a dry bready caramel malt backing - smells delectable. The flavour is very dry and foresty, with coniferous and pine trees, dry earthy hops, and a dry biscuity malt backing. Highly drinkable, with a very dry palate. An excellent IPA.

brokensail (16670) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: Poured from the growler to the glass to reveal a perfectly copper colored beer with a fluffy off-white head.

S: Lots of great grapefruit and pine aromas fill the nose. There is also a hint of sweet tropical fruit, such as pineapple and mango, on the finish.

T: The same great fruits that were present in the aroma are picked up on the tongue as well, but perhaps not quite as intense. There is also a nice bitterness on the finish.

M: Despite the long trip in the growler, this beer was still very well carbonated. A nice medium body on this beer.

D: This is definitely one of the more hoppy and aromatic IPAs that I’ve had from outside California. A very easy drinking, one, however. And at 5.9% ABV, it’s not too tough to have a few glasses of.

Scopey (15879) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Growler, big thanks to Jack. It pours clear dark amber with a decent yellow - white head. The nose is fresh, piney, caramel, varnish, juicy peach, stewed orange and pumpkin pie. The taste is bitter - sweet, decent malt back-bone, caramel, pine, varnish, earth, peppery, peach, resin and brown bread with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good old-skool malty IPA.

Growler thanks to Eric. Pours a dark copper with small frothy off white head. The aroma is floral and pine. Medium mouth, sweet malt, nice hop bite, very good.
