11.2 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured amber, cloudy, nice thick off white and nice lacing on glass. Aroma of hops, malts and yeast. Taste is quite sweet and malty, a lot of hop in there too but mostly sweet, some caramel and even some booze, bitter finish. Not too dry or sticky making it quite easy to drink. Not bad, very enjoyable. Liked it a lot.

morri (189) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Big bubbly tan head. Amber cloudy bottle. Aroma is hop dominated, as expected. Spruce, caramel, citrus, very fruity. Short lasting intense bitterness in the tongue. Some malt sweetness to compensate. Dry finish, excellent mouthfeel.

dfearnley (884) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle to tulip Aroma of caramel, resin, spruce, pine, toasted malt, and a little yeast. Pouts a hazy reddish amber with a voluminous off white frothy head that settles quickly, but leaves thick lacing. Taste is pepper, bubble gum, mango, grapefruit, and a little caramel. A lot sweeter up front than expected, but that balances the heavy late bitterness.

On tap at Tomahawk Bar 210614. Nice to see a few Mikkeller beers on tap in Brisbane as we don’t usually see a lot. Well worth a look this one as it fills the mouth with a big fruity resinous hop flavour.

Karol (598) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 18, 2014
Bottled. Aroma is quite low, almost undetectable. Some oranges, leeches, but too weak. Beautiful orange copper color, off white head, stable. Taste is great of hops, oranges, leeches with a strong alcohol and hops finish. The initial hops flavor vanishes in the end and the alcohol dominates the aftertaste. Really nice. Overall a great IPA!

330ml bottle from Thistle News. Reddish amber brown, good head. Grain hop aroma. Dry woody hop flavour, Bitter aftertaste. Solid IPA. Quite light & refreshing.

Cirrhosis (1195) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Just drank a Maine Lunch before this...... I’m sorry Mikkeller. Drank streight from bottle watching game five of stanley cup finals.....2nd overtime about to start. Big hops and a honey like sweetness....... to much honey. This almost seems like a mess, so much going on but nothing seems to mesh. Apple, ginger, pennies..... I swear this has a Unibrou like taste. KOPITAR IS A ZOMBIE!! I can’t shake the Belgian qualities of this! Very earthy. Fuck you ref put the whistle away. I love the post!! Beer just trasphormed into a eastern euro lager. Ugggg..... this is a mess that you can drink. A strange minty vannila works its way into the flavor but its hidden. A rare miss from Mikkeller.

Bottle. Hazy orange with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel malty, sweet orange, toffee. Flavour is full of fruit--mango, pineapple, passionfruit, orange and mandarin. Some sweet malt. Smooth with a bitter finish.
