Roasry malta caramel and slight lemon grass. Taste is like aromas with a slightly watered down finish. Appearance is a lear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

Bottle in the Netherlands. Beautiful colour when poured and hoppy aromas. In mouth it feels bitter, yet sweet and very well balanced. A top brew

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
American-style double IPA made at Brewdog with the collaboration of Mikkeller - and if these two avantgardists join forces, something exciting is bound to come out of it. Clear, warm, beautiful orange colour with quiet sparkling; loose, milky, irregular, rather thin (despite the hops!) head leaving a thin veil over the liquid. Expectedly, the aroma is ruled by strong citrusy hops; I get tons of pink grapefruit, fresh orange peel, wormwood and pine needles, along with acacia honey, toasted bread, fresh pineapple slices, dandelion leaves, brandy, vanilla, overripe peach, starfruit, sundried tomatoes, some cantaloupe, liquorice even. This beguiling aroma is rewarded in the mouth: a pointy, refined, delicate but feisty vanilla-like sweetness opens the palate among noble fruitiness (peach, pineapple, redcurrant, papaja), playing around in the mouth vividly and joyfully... Middle phase has a smooth and resinous character, high quality maltiness, with the hops already knocking on the door. The finish is ruled by citrussy, peppery, resinous and grassy hop bitterness, very vibrant and crisp, long, dry and complex, interacting beautifully with the lingering malt sweetness. The alcohol, though considerable, remains very well hidden. This is on a par with many of the greatest American double IPAs, but then, how could a collaboration between Brewdog and Mikkeller ever go wrong...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught (@ Ørsted Ølbar a while back). Pours a pale amber colour with a small white head. Taste is of malt, hops, light citrus notes and yeast. Sweet and very fruity. Bitter and slightly boozy finish. Not bad but nothing too special.

Punch in da face with sweetness and bitterness. Frukt i aromen, hintar om kraftig sötma i smaken. Smaken mycket sötma, ABVn känns av. Bra fyllighet och balans i både smak och kropp.
