Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2010
from Erzbierschof.ch - hazy amber-brown colour and with a persistent beige foam; nice lacework; very hoppy nose, aroma of molasses, flowers and quince; thick, full-bodied and with a moderate carbonation; very bitter but not as much as I think it could be; very long flowery and fruity hoppy finish with a lingering bitterness - a hop soup

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep unclear brown with a big but short-lasting off-white head. Aroma is lots and lots of hops, with resin and citrus. Taste is much of the same. Palate is soft again dominated by hops. Overall a great beer.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 Bottle. Pours a very murky dark bronze with a big tan coloured head. Plenty of lacing as it feel away, Aromas are no where near as aggressive as i anticipated.. Plenty of resiny citrus hop aromas for sure but for me the hop aromas play second fiddle to heaps and heaps of sweet light malt. Brilliant stuff. Really really good. Flavour wise plenty of sweet malt again up front followed by reasonable resiny hop bitterness. Once again the hops are not at all over powering. Very full beer and really really enjoyed it.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Rusty brown pour with a loose, off-white head. Very floral and herbal with light citrus. Like a fresh bag of hops. Some notes of caramel and biscuit from the malt with a touch of pine. Overall not too aggressive but well balanced. Medium, dry body with soft carbonation.

Bontus (693) - Flanders, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2010
Bottle at Borefts bierfestival 2010. Very sweet sticky maltiness finishes harshly bitter and resinous.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 24, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This unrefined Double IPA’s pronounced green hoppiness overtakes the underlying malts’ caramel sweetness for a brutal sipper which ends in a concentrated bitterness with leafy, spicy and resinous angles.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sticky sheet of foam tops the particle-laden copper. There are way too many floaties in the bottle, making it impossible to pour a somewhat clean-looking glass.
-This desperately needs some level of filtration. The mouthfeel suffers from all the floaties.
-Carbonation is soft, leaving you in full view of the hoppy madness and particle tornado.
-Alcohol is not really tasted since it is smothered in hoppiness.
-This remains a nice gimmick of a beer as it is flavorful, but it is too raw and brash to be all that pleasant to me.

Bottle.

hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Bottle… Murky prune juice-colored ale with thousands of floaties and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Very nice retention. Notes of funky, nasty cheese and caramel malt really stand out in the aromatics. Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Sweet caramel up front; devastating, earthy, musky bitterness on the backside. Lengthy, heavily bitter, grassy finish. Bottle courtesy of growler

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 22, 2010
Pours a sexy deep amber, off white head.Aroma has that Mikkeller IPA character, rich malt and big citrusy hops.
The initial sip seems like any big bitter west coast IPA, big crystal malt character with citric hops overlying. The difference here comes half way through the glass when you realise each sip seems more intense than the last. Resin coats every nook and cranny of your mouth, the hops are inescapable.
I am in hop head heaven.

douglas88 (7248) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle shared by footbalm. Pours a cloudy copper with a large creamy white head and lots of particulates at the bottom. A nice nose of biter hops, fruity, some caramel as well. The flavor is mostly bitter and quite fruity in the beginning, more pine bitterness in the finish. Decent.

On tap KØ-2010. Dark golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is pine malt, hop. Flavour is hop, grapefruit, malt, pine, caramel. Full bodied nice beer.
