Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2010
Large creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Hazy amber color. Aroma of floral, grapefruit, peach, citrus, grass, caramel, toasted malt. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Heavy bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering dry bitter finish.

Pours a copper color with large, retaining cream colored head. Very thick lacing. The aroma is a busy mix of hops, with tons of citrus, grapefruit and some pretty potent pine. Fresh, floral, and spicy notes are mixed in with a strong, sweet malt backbone. The flavor is loaded with a ton of pine and citrus, but Amarillo and Simcoe are surprisingly still detectable in the flavor. There is a huge hop flavor that is very bitter, but at the same time balanced. Medium bodied with soft, foamy carbonation. An amazing hop experience.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
Heavy and thick aroma, hops dominate the aroma but do not assault your nose with pine/citrus. More like a forest damp, softer smell. Great head on pour, beautiful copprer colour, no particulates in this one, lacing retains head but isn’t visible. Very prominent hop flavour profile for the entire taste and palate, begins boldly but not as bold as could be, just a nice even growth. It does last quite a while though, it eventually does bitter the tounge but it feels sort of pickled with hops. They don’t taste as strong as that sounds though. Great hops is what Mikkeller does, and this is no exception.

Incredible IPA brewed with 10 different types of hops (warrior, simcoe, centennial, cascade, amarillo, nelson sauvin, nugget, tomahawk and east kent golding). Aroma is enticing with hops full and up front. Mild malt aroma and citrus as well. Taste is ridiculous with full hop bite and complex comingling of the many different hops. The amarillo is identifiable by the nice sweetness and the centennial and cascade are betrayed by the slight Northwest style taste. Overall, one of the best IPA’s I have had in my life.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2010
Pours golden orange with a nice rocky head. The aroma is vegital with some citrus, pine and berries showing through. The flavor is almost a little underwhelming. Berries, chlorophyll, pine citrus, papaya, and a juicy bitter grapefruit finish. I guess I was expecting more of a bomb, and not a nicely balanced ipa.

Bottle at Haket, Göteborg, on August 14, 2010
Hazy deep amber color, fluffy tan head. Mango and pineapple fruity hoppy scent. Bitter, citrus, hoppy taste. Bitter aftertaste. Medium low mouthfeel. Fairly high bitterness.
More balanced than I expected, quite nice.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber with two fingers of lasting foam. Moderate aroma more malt than hops. Flavour is wooy hops with a body that seems to get dryer and dryer as the beer makes it’s journey from front to back. Woody hoppy beer. Cedar taste? After a few sips a nice sweetness comes through toning down the dryness from the start. A beer that is a good argument for a big sample. I started off thinking this was weak but it gets tastier and tastier through the bottle.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - AUG 15, 2010
funky stale hop aroma--like old flowers--with bark and moss, along with caramel and brown sugar. pours rust orange with almost-orange rocky head. mostly bitter flavor, sweet caramel around the edges, with bittersweet floral finish. nice texture, almost chewy, with lively carbonation and a long finish.

dylan88 (223) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
33 cl bottle. Pours amber color with a lasting white head. The aroma is pine, citrus and flowers. Taste is pretty similar and balanced between bitterness and malt. The body is medium with lively carbonation. A very refreshing and enjoyable beer!!

A gobsmack of hoppiness and a touch of sweetness. The base and malt profile here are roughly similar in look and character to much of the other single hop series. A little sweetness and enough body to keep the balance with the real star here, the hops. Leaves a decent lacing down the glass. Th aroma is mostly citrus and pine but there are some herbal and floral notes seeping in the background as well. Flavor is sweet at first but that fades into a bitter and big pine and citrus hop finish. A little bit of bubblegum. You really get some of the best characteristics of numerous different hops at one point or another in this drink. Unfortunately not every hop element can be detected right off the bat but enough are featured to make this fun.
