Richmond 19th. And Mikkeller 19, together at last! Synchronicity. Like chocolate and peanut butter. I’m rambling here. Medium orange, Bitter citric and caramel aroma, Bitter citric and caramel aroma, flavor matches, just a touch fresher than the 10 was. Shows that the difference between 10 hops and 19 hops is not a whole heck of a lot. But this series is a great concept, wish others would do this more often.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 19. Sampled side by side with the 10. Clear amber pour with large light khaki head. Extremely similar to the 10. Only tastes like a slightly fresher version of the 10. Mellowed and caramel, with hints of spiciness. Not amazing. But the concept of this series was fantastic, so for that reason, I commend them.
