Bottle courtesy of Chaney. Thanks Brandon!
A: This beer pours a straw yellow hue and appears mostly clear, with just a slight haziness about it. Atop the beer (where else?) sits a white, fluffy head an inch thick. The head has very good retention and leaves a thick sheet of lacing around the perimeter of the glass.
S: The aroma is extremely floral, with subtle medicinal and herbal notes, as well as spices.
T: The flavor is also extremely floral, with a medicinal astringency coming through more and more prominently as I make my way through the pint glass. Overall, I find the flavor to be a bit weird and slightly off-putting. This is certainly not what one should expect when opening a fresh IPA. All this being said, there are some nice bitter and hop flavors to be found, but ultimately, these are lost in the shuffle.
M: OK feel, aside from the metallic / overly floral aspects.
D: It wasn’t horrible, but in the end, this was a pretty average beer. Though I appreciate the opportunity to sample this, I wouldn’t bother with this one again.

Golden/orange with low off-white head.
Very fruity nose with a bourbon vanilla whiff.
Grape fruit and pine. Grassy. Really bitter - more so on the finish than up-front.
Creamy and long. Not a standard IPA, but quite lovely. Ungstrup (38248) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a cloudy golden with a tiny white head. Harsh hoppy and somewhat phenollic aroma. Medium body, sweet malts and fruit but again this rather harsh hoppiness. Not sure if I’m really fond of the hop profile here. 030612 orangesol (987) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Served on-tap into a standard pint in the Troegs tasting room.
A - Pours hazy sun kissed copper with a strong two finger white head leaving sticky lacing down the entire glass.
S - Plenty of floral citrus hops with underlying sweetness from the malt. Ripe citrus fruits abound but are tempered a bit with a faint spicy quality. Not the best nose, but not the worst either.
T - Lots of hop bitterness upfront that lingers on the pallet throughout the experience. Hops are citric with a bit of herbal qualities that add a slight spicy character. A bit of toast on the sweet malt goes well with all those hops. Finish is a bit on the dry side. Very nice effort but I have had better.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sticky, bitter, feel coats the pallet.
D - Fairly good. I enjoyed this one for what it was but thanks to the higher ABV I can’t see myself sitting down and drinking a few of these in one sitting. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
12oz bottle, not sure who I got this from. Rating #38. Super clear dark yellow with a bit of gold and a thin white head. Sweet caramel aroma with a bit of hops in there. Light flavor, sweet maltiness followed by some more light hops, kinda bland for my taste. (1994) Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2011

How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed approximately 6 months after the beer release. Bottle from my BA buddy, thanks a lot Heath
The look: Cloudy glowing orange-blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: The moderately hoppy nose is mostly tangy. Malt bill as a beady and slightly doughy pale malts taste that felt a bit like those individually wrapped buns that dinners serve with the soup, the type of soft buns that can last 100 years. Really. Hopping is surprisingly assertive with plenty of oranges, some bitter grapefruits, lemons, fresh grass and yellowed grass. Finish is medium bitter, citric and grassy. I liked that beer. Rating #4300 for me!!! Hooray me!!! But I had thinking I should spent less time drank and rated beers and more time worked on my grammar.
It pours solid golden orange, a bit lighter, with a white head. The aroma of hops and fruitiness. The notes of citrus orange are huge, especially after a little bit of time on the beer. The body is solid medium with light bubbly carbonation.
