From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lasting bitter aftertaste.

Cirrhosis (1224) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2010
Bright reddish brown with a thick foamy cap, Sweet hoppy goodness in the aroma with faint red wine vinegar, aroma seems mild but has a nice balance between hops and malts. Taste is yummy but seems thin and held back. it has a massive bitter presence with wood and citrus as secondary flavours. Really wish the was more full bodied then I’d be all over this beer, but it’s not bad. Starting to pick out lemon lime but not to strongly. The malts are in here but they are hard to pick out of the bitter. Not as big or complex as I thought it would be all the hop varieties seem to get lost in each other. Still good to drink though.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours out in a hazy reddish amber colour with a rich frothy tan-coloured head. Rich hop aroma of resin, plums, lychee, grapefruit and flowers. Medium-bodied with notes of grapefruit, wet grass, resin, orange-peels and lemon-zest. Long bitter finish of grapefruit and resin.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2010
330ml brown bottle. Golden orange in colour, light haze. Huge thick sticky head that is off white in colour. Tons of sticky lacing. Grapefruit and sweet orange hop aroma. Big hop flavour - grapefruit, lemon and sweet orange. Malts beneath are caramel tinged, a bit toasty. Big bitter finish that attacks the back of the throat with lingering grapefruit and lemon peels. Medium body, lighter than expected carbonation profile. Solid, hop packed brew.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2010
330 ml bottle; thanks Alex; creamy white head and dark orange, which was surprising as I was expecting more of a rainbow color; stale, lemony hops and a little garlic; quite piney and dry; mix of cat pee, pine and garlic to me; eh; dry, stale and kind of all over the place

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - AUG 27, 2010
Good but unfortunately the high AA hops really dominate making this a fairly straight forward citrus bomb. Nose is pine and citrus, but mouthful is almost entirely citrus. Good body. Another good but not great IPA from Mikkeller.

Butters (3848) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Shared with maniac. Pours a near clear orange with MASSIVE light tan. Nose is sweet old hops, with a citrusy foresty hops. Flavor is a wierd mellowing of old hops with a very bitter lingering finish. Not that great.

j12601 (6752) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle that I brought to the Grand Tasting during RBSG. Pours a just hazed gold with a thin white to beige head. Big juicy hops, citrus. Pungent and earthy hop flavors, big chewy malt. Long slow grapefruit finish.

Ap4 Hazy copper color with aswesome tall rock long lasting and lacing off-white/light tan head. Ar7 solid, but more malt than hops. Doughy biscuit malt with a bit of hop spiciness to it. Fl9 BEAUTIFUL balance between hops and malt. The hops are very complex—citrus, resinous pine, and an almost minty herbal quality meld together in perfect balance so no quality stands above the others, which makes for a unified unique hoppiness. Pal5Medium bodied with light small tingly bubbles. So silky smooth. Ov17 This beer really surprised me. I am having serious trouble finding any flaws in this one. If I could have this on tap at my house at all times I would be a happy man. I may like it more than any other IPA I have ever tried, including Alpha King, which is saying a lot! TRY THIS BEER!!!

Bottle - glad to have this on hand locally after pretty much begging to have some at RBSG Grand tasting. I’ll blend the two rating together as they have similar info. Pours out a dirty orange brew with a light tan head that seems to be creeping up my glass. Massive citrusy hop bomb exploded in my nostrils. Lemons, oranges, both types of grapefruit, pineapple, caramel on the sweet side creeps around in the back ground, fake sour orange similar to those old Contact C fizzy pills that I used to consume at an unhealthy rate when I was a child. This has evolved more into this sour tart lemon rind / orangy thing now leaving the other qualities in the past. The taste is pretty stellar - endless bitterness grows in concentration as I bottom this bottle, as does the sharp pine and resin. But before that a healthy dose of lemon, both grapefruits, sour orange, something a bit powdery, mild sweet caramel and something that reminds me of crab apple skin lurked around until finally being beaten down. Apricot, cotton candy, hell, everything is in here. A well rounded brew that has shown many faces throughout the entire glass. Unfortunately I have no more... just this permanent, endless piney bitterness wreaking having on my mouth. This was phenomenal.
