This is THE IPA to beat in my book. Combines a bracing pacific northwest and continental hop blend with smooth German caramel malts for a beer that is both a showcase for smart use of hops and very drinkable for its 6.9%. Aroma is bright and full of citrus character with some spiciness courtesy of the EKGs in there. The malt backbone carries the hops but never showcases itself, and while I am a huge fan of highly malted beers I appreciate that this blend does exactly what it is intended to do. While bitter enough to please the hop heads, this beer ends on a balanced note that is both clean but still allows residual hop bitterness to linger. Pours a murky unfiltered pale brown with a solid off-white head and scads of messy lacing. Not a hop bomb, but rather a showcase in restraint and drinkability. Seek it out.

Very nice IPA. Beautiful hazy amber color. Medium foam. A gentle, light bitterness. Floral, citrus and caramel tones. Bought at Barley Wine in Copenhagen.

mgajdaczewa (488) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Aromat owoców tropikalnych i cytrusów, do tego nietypowa, ziołowa nuta, która całkiem fajnie się wpasowała. W smaku raczej wytrawne, słodowe nuty biszkoptowe, lekka brzoskwinia, troszkę słodkich pomarańczy, goryczka spora, krótka, grejpfrutowo - ziołowa. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Really nice IPA. Light in color and frothy head. Slight citrus and pine. Refreshing. A little pricey to drink too often, but glad I tried.

Karol (629) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 17, 2014
Bottled. Overall a great IPA by Mikkeller. Mild, hoppy, fruity a bit. Nothing wow, but a gentleman style noble IPA. Exactly my style.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a short white head. The nose is sweet citrus and toasted malt. Plastic is noted among the light caramel and citrus flavors.

9/V/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 5/II/16 (2014-492)

Clear red amber beer, big frothy yellow head, little stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: piny, lots of citrus, grapefruit, bit floral. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet malty start, caramel, vit sugary, very fruity, citrus, some exotic fruits, grapefruit, pretty sour touch. Aftertaste: very fruity, grassy hops, sweet exotic fruits, pineapple, passion fruits. Yes, I want MORE!

Hockert (76) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark caramel with off white head. Smells of grapefruit, mango and citrus. The taste is quite bitter, but with medium to full body that is well balanced. Starting to regret only buying one of these.. Good IPA!

domienS (90) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a clear dark blond beer with a big white foamy stable head. Slightly carbonated. Smells really fresh, fruity and floral. Hints of lychee’s and grapefruit. Tastes bitter. The aroma has a lot of the fruit in it. Leaves a nice gentle bitter palate that doesn’t linger for to long. Big mouth feel. Really great brew.

Clear amber, slightly off white head. Smells of light malt and fruity hops, good IPA taste avoiding the fruit juice effect. Very good resinous aftertaste.
