On tap at Sail and Anchor. Pours a hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Some orange sediment. A Very intense aroma. Lots of pine and earthy hops with some very rich malts. Flavour is big grassy pine, hop resin, sweet malt backbone. Big BIG hops. Good intensity from a good IPA

Bottled. A dark resiny orange. The nose is 1000 ibus but the rest of it just tastes like you’re sucking a 2x4. Mediocrity reigns. Not what I was expecting.

Transparent dark orange. The nose isn’t particularly sharp - just intensely pungent - lots of resiny hops, right up front, with actually a decent balance of caramel malts. A sip shows you where that bitterness comes in - inTENSEly bitter, and that taste lingers forever. Although... honestly? If someone told me to guess, I’d have pegged it at about 150 IBU. Cool to try this one, though!

Dark orange pour with a rocky white head. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, lemon, resin pine. Flavor is intensely hoppy, but only lightly bitter. Great citrus notes with some nice resin background. Good malt backbone. Great beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Batch #1 from 2010 -- Dark amber, light tan creamy head. Floral pineapple and orange marmalade aromas ride a soft toffee backbone from start to finish. Initial bitter pummeling fades into some semblance of balance. Piney tropical and citrus-like notes continue on a deep rooted caramelized backbone. Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, bittersweet finish. Very nice, but more like a 100 IBU’s…

Right from the start, this is for me. The aroma hits you with pine and citrus and it keeps coming. The pour is hazy amber with an off white head and a lot of floaters like someone was eating peanuts and took a big swig of your beer. The flavor is all hops, hops and more hops. There is a bit of sweetness but mostly hops. The after taste is great, bitter and lasting. One great beer.

Bottle. Hazy amber colour with a beige head. Aroma and flavour of hops, malt and fruits.

The aroma is very malty and full of grapefruit style notes. The appearance is not great. It is very dark and doesn’t seem to have much character with the carbonation and head. The taste is great. It is not very bitter at all compared to some beers that I enjoy regularly. The hop flavor is prominent but the malt almost equals that flavor. These two are backed up by the grapefruit. I am enjoying this beer, however: for the price I’ll take a moylans Hopsickle and a Pliny haha

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a cloudy mahagony color. Aroma is resinous hops and a bit of citrus. Taste is crazy bitter at first but after it warms up and you keep sipping it, it doesn’t seem as harsh. Taste is slightly chewy, but smooth and has some hop juice sweetness. Not bad.

Ah Mikkeller, you always trick me into buying your stuff and I almost always come away disappointed. This beer pours a dark amber color with thin off-white bubbly head. Aroma is of intense resinous, danky, earth hops. Taste is of citrus, intense resinous stick hops, tangerine and apricot. Very intensely bitter and just overpowering.
