Courtesy of Blazer06. Pours clear gold with copper core and white head. The aroma is obviously a mixed bag of hops with spicy hops, floral, earthy, modestly citrus, mild pine and some white wine notes. The taste is crisp and somewhat drying with spicy, citrus and pine hops to start. By about midway smooth mild malt sweetness is noticed before fading away into the finish. The hops, on the other hand, grow in force before slowly slipping away deep into the after taste.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2010
Flaske: Flot ravfarvet let uklar øl med et stort skumhoved. Kraftig duft af humle hvor citrus og mango er de dominerende. Smagen er lige i skabet med en god bitterhed til at bakke en diskret maltsødme op. Smagen er igen domineret af mango og citrus. Virkelig en lækker IPA.

DialSquare (2659) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2010
12oz bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. Hazy orange pour with a frothy off-white head and soapy lacing. Aroma is clean, pine, alcohol, grapefruit and light caramel. Tastes are same with earthy, perfume and orange sweetness. Finish is nice - bitter, grapefruit tart, dry and grainy. As always with Mikkeller - overpriced ($5.99 a pop), but interesting.

finol (2166) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle. Lots of tropical fruits. Balanced sweet and bitterness. Thanks Mikkeller for the intersting Singel hop project, but this is the proof that you need a few to make a complete beer. (Not neceserly 10 though)

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - JUL 9, 2010
Color arancio pallido, schiuma bianca e persistente. Al naso è agrumi e luppolo. Al palato è amara con dominanza di luppolo, leggermente fruttata. Finale secco e amarognolo. Di certo una birra di qualità ma manca di classe e di una identità più precisa.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2010
11.2oz bottle. Pours a very hazy, orange-deep gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is a solid mixture of hops and malts. A good amount of sweet caramels with lots of fruit. Peach, grapefruit, orange, and mango with some pines, herbs, and florals. Nice hop blend. Flavor is nice, but seems to lack the fruit complexity that the aroma provided. Fairly bitter with lots of pine and orange peel. Moderate amount of sweet caramels provide a nice balance. Some herbal spice and a light resin with a hint of floral fruits. Finishes dry and piney with a higher bitterness and light caramel. Leaves a lengthy aftertaste following a light to medium, slick body and higher carbonation. Overall, a solid IPA. Plenty of hops and a pleasant malt balance. I like the fruit blend on the aroma a lot.

wedgie9 (1937) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Tasted from bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. Pours clear amber orange with a thick white head that leaves heavy lace. Nose is a nice balance of malt and bitter grapefruit hops. The flavors are similar with good malt and the hops really ranging from orange, lemon, grapefruit, and a nice bitterness. Body is medium with active carbonation and a nice bitter finish.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours a lovely dark amber with orange notes, with a frothy off white head. The aroma is quite hoppy with alot of juicy hops, with grapefruit, pine, resin and some bready and caramelly malts. Flavor is more spicy, with a decent amount of resinous hops, also some earthy notes along with grapefruit, pine and a slight note of pineapple (probably from the Nelson Sauvin). There is also some bready caramely malts in the flavor. The body is medium, with a very dry mouthfeel. Overall a solid IPA, but expected more from this one.
