3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy dark orange color, with a huge, orangy white head.
Smells of juicy, ripe orange, together with a nice, grassy dankness and a subtle, refreshing lemon note. A whiff of blueberry skin underneath, as well as white bread malts with even more orange.
Drinks very soft till the finish, in which a bubbly carbonation washes over the established creaminess, revealing a lively minerality. This leads to a thinner, aqueous finish, with not much going on, considering the united potential of 19 hops.
Tastes of toffee coated oranges, while a soothing dankness blends a well accentuated lemon crispness perfectly into the flavor foundation of this, while leading off with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Blood oranges add to the fruitiness, as well as a late kiwi addition during the finish, balancing sweet turning, cakey malts. Produces a pungent bitterness after its initial fruit layer, which gets tamed by a more prominent malt bill during the beer’s finish.
Convinces due to its great balance, creating an easy drinker with a nice mouthfeel, while its hoppiness remains on the fruitier side, with a decent complexity to it.

From Brewcraft. (We've tried 11 of the 19 hops in this as a single hop IPA!) Cloudy amber brown, fluffy chunky white head, spotty legs. Smells of slightly musty hop, pear, light orange and lemon, Taste is heavy bitter hop, light lemon and spice. Body is very bitter, almost stony, lemon frothier finish. Good! Bottle may be a little old.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Brewcraft at home. This is the 12th Mikkeller hop series we've had! Muddy orange copper pour with big sticky head. Aroma is interesting - lots going on. Citrus zest, grape must, booze, spiciness. Taste is bitter - again, grape must, citrus peel, pine resin. Busy but good. A little bit of plastic. Lasting bitterness with some boozy warmth. Much better than I remember the 20 hop one.

Pours a hazy Amber orange, with a thick foamy light tan head from a can . Obviously a super hop aroma, love the sorachi influence just pushing through, but mellowed by the simcoe and citra. The can lists oat flakes as an ingredient , I gues that gives the DIPA like mouthfeel.

On tap @ Hopaholic, Budapest: Amazingly complex beer. Murky amber appearance. Hoppy aroma and flavor with everything from blackcurrant to grapefruit and even white chocolate. Sweet toffee malts but nevertheless balanced. Killer IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a can. Light amber colour with a white head. Delicious fruity aroma, and a taste of orange, tropical fruit, grape, lychee and pineapple. A very successful mix of wonderful summer tastes and not too bitter. A really excellent and original beer with high drinkability and great mouthfeel.
