Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Slightly hazy orangish color with a little head. Aroma is very thick sap with aged wood, spicy hops and bright fresh notes. Flavor is lots of hops, and caramel flavors. Lightly bittered finish.

rane (878) - Nibe, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle. Red brown with small pale brown head. Hadn´t settled enough so lots of floating particles in the last half of the bottle. Aroma hoppy, citrus and some malt, not as brutal offensive hoppy as expected. Taste typical IIPA, not as hoppy as expected, but off cause still a bitter hoppy taste and lots of malt underneath. Finishes dry. An average IIPA, not as brutal and offensive as expected and certainly not as bitter. In fact I´ve had IIPA tasting more bitter than this, but an interesting experiment.

MeadMe (1307) - Riverview, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2010
A: Pours a nice orange hue with an average white head. Brew really clings to the glass and leave behind some small chunks of lace. S: Rich sweet aromas. Loads and loads of pine. Mild sweet citric undertones as well. T: Rich and sweet. Lots of fresh orange and tangerine. Mild grapefruit and sappy pine. The hops are there but the bitterness is actually rather low. Rich sweet with a ton of candied malt. M: Low on carbonation, rich, sweet, and a bit of boozy burn in the finish.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle from Olive tree market. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy off white head that left some great lacing. Tone of citrus hops in the nose along with a good amount of caramel malts. Brew was surprisingly drinkable, damn tasty!

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris O’s "Has anyone seen my stool?" tasting.
Murky light amber with a big frothy off white head. Big citrus notes, mainly grapefruit along with some tangerine and orange. Rather a lot of sweetness considering the epic bitterness. Interesting but certainly not Mikkel’s best beer.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Draft during CBC Chicago. Pours a hazy dark orange dull with a frothy sticky white head. Stinky pine aroma, cat piss, grapefruit, christmas tree, spruce. Flavor is lemon, grape, huge pine, weird though, lemony, fruity, intense pine, pretty bitter but strangely fruity, touch of cotton candy, hop extract. Thinner bodied with sharp fluffy carbonation, bit sticky.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 6, 2010
Bottled 375ml. Ordered from erzbierschof.ch. It pours a deep amber beer with a nicely remaining creamy beige head. Strong, almost pungent peppery aroma of grapefruit, pine needles, bitter orange marmelade and mango. The nose is mouthwatering, powerful and inviting. Peppery, resiny and full bodied. Warming on the swallow. Nice spotty lacework. Long, extremely bitter finish. Interesting. This beer propably complements spicy food really well.

grapengrain (125) - Havelock North, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 5, 2010
Very big sweet malty notes - barley sugar and caramel... this ballanced the hop note which were dominant but not particularily ’Bitter’ (isn’t that what IBU is a measure of???). Also Mikkeller describes the beer as a Double Imperial IPA - not sure quite what this means - it is certinaly not a IIIPA at 9.x% unlike his Black which warrants the "Double Imperial" Stout demarkation at 17.5%. Interesting but not exciting.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2010 Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a bottle at Septoberfest. The beer is a dark reddish-brown color with a thick and rocky beige head that burns away slowly. Thick rings of lacing. Fruit and bready malt in the nose, along with pungent hops. Rich body with a strong resiny hops character and flavors of toasted malt, berries and alcohol. The finish is hoppy with a lingering pine and resin after-effect. Pretty good overall, especially considering my gimmicky first impression.
