swoopjones (5725) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2010
bottle, shared with Rudolf & IPFreely at Coles. cork & caged, no pop at all. Deep copper pour, BW like aroma, full rich maltiness, solid hop nose. Taste is rich malts, sweet caramel maltiness, solid bitterness that seems to tail off toward the finish. tastes like a slightly older Great Divide Old ??? (temp. brain freeze) notes of tea, grapefruit & orange. decent

rlgk (10276) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle, thanks to larsniclas. Really hazy amber/grey color, big beige head. Hoppy aroma, but not as much as expected. Huge hop flavor, really bitter and not much more. One-dimensional.

olsvammel (3030) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2010
It had a sweet flavour with hops, grass, grapefruit and pine. Actually not as bitter as I expected, I’ve tried beers that have been more bitter. However the bitterness lasted quite a while. Long after sipping I could still feel it lingering in my mouth. Also not as much hops as I would have hoped for, but still a pretty nice beer.

ClubGonzo (3993) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
Pours a deep ruby red body with floaties and a small, off-white top. Aroma is very fruity hops: apricot, peaches, wild strawberries, raspberries. Taste is not quite as fruity, with more sweet cough syrup and grassy hops coming through fairly clear. Extremely bitter and long-lasting aftertaste. The bitterness just goes on forever, and really proves the IBU point of this creation. Otherwise, it’s just a good DIPA and not too impressive, but a well made brew. Extra points for originality to Mikkeller on this one.

cranked (8) - Kentucky, USA - JUL 24, 2010 does not count
First off, I have to congratulate Mikkel on this brew. My hat’s off to you buddy! Poured light brown and very hazy into large DFH Snifter from bottle. Aroma smells like fresh hops. This beer is very intense on the palate. First it hits with a nice bitterness, then washes over with sweetness as it’s traveling towards the back of the tongue, and finally at the bitterness receptors on the back of the tongue it explodes into a fresh hop taste that keeps on giving well after five minutes past the initial sip. This beer tastes like unfermented wort and fresh hops. Definitely get this brew, and share the bottle with a friend.

jzzbassman (1514) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Bottled. Poured a deep cloudy red with a 3 finger head. Aroma of dank earth, hops, and alcohol. Almost 2 different beers flavor wise between out of the fridge 15 minutes and as it warms to near room temp. The sweet and bitter play together much nicer as it warms even above cellar temp, well carbonated throughout. Interesting, but overall not the tastiest hop combo I’ve ever had.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2010
37,5 cl bottle. Pours an opaque caramel color with a big beuge head. Creamy and losg lasting foam. Aroma is stunning: tons of hops, with citrus pineapple and pine, balanced by a good amount of caramel notes. Taste is sweeter then expected with the huge hoppy character well balanced by a warm caramel and toffee. Almost not perceivable the abv. Full bodied and good carbd. This beer is massive, but still well rounded.
