3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber with a large off-white head that settles to an inch. Hoppy aroma is fairly restrained, but is a pleasant melange of lemon, orange and grapefruit, with a little pine and spice. Bittersweet taste with firm bitterness rushing in pretty much straight away. Caramel and peach join the citrus flavours along with some tropical fruits. Dry finish with lingering citrus and some spices. Good and very drinkable, but not much character from the malt side of things and nothing really distinctive about the hop blend.

Very interesting combination of hops, but a bit stale. Probably not the brewery’s fault, but that the bottle was stocked for awhile. Overall notes, first impression -- floral, sugary fruits. Good, would love to have it fresh. Mouthfeel is a little rough.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
19 Hops? Deep amber pour, hazy, 2 fingers of bubbly head. Aroma is all hops. Overly bitter, Pine, slight vinegar quality (!!) The hopping is interesting - a mishmash of Pine, Vegetable, and ripe fruit that didn’t really work for me. Decent mouthfeel. I like Mikkeller but this one seems like an experiment better left in the planning stages.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a very cloudy amber with a massive, foamy off-white everlasting head. Aroma is bright and hoppy, with a melange of herbal, pine, grapefruit, and soap. Flavor is rather different, and atypical. Bright and sharp, piny, bitter, a hint of vegetable, with a semi-sweet and fruity finish (still bitter, though). Perks up the palate. Really unique, and difficult for me to describe. An intriguing mix of flavors, and the sum total is delicious and drinkable.

Nice, very nice. It was IPA since long time ago so - just enjoyed it. Very fruity, intence aroma. Pours with long lasting top. Liked that it is enough bitter to be not sour. Can’t say anything about complexity of taste - not enough skills, but taste is very "vivid". Must repeat...
