Thanks to thewolf for this. Pours a slightly hazy deep auburn with a frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is a great mix of earthy hop and rich malt. Taste is very well balanced, good body and rich earthy tones. Great hop bitterness and malt backbone. I really enjoyed this.

As the brewery says itself, a leasy drinkable hoppy beer that can be drunk in large quantities.

Hazy amber beer. Moderate carbonation, dry palate, crisp too. Fairly one dimensional spciy hop, really not much else going on. Decent but plain.

500ml bottle sample purchased at Zyn in Calgary. Pours a cloudy gold colour, with a nice puffy white head that recedes to a ring. Very nice spidery web like lacing. The aroma is of hops. Taste is of hops and a little citrus, slightly bitter (in a very nice way). Absolutely delicious, can’t wait to have it again.

On tap, this is one of the beers I’ve drunk more than one time. The 6% alcohol was not too noticeable to me. Orange, with a persistent froth, a little bit bitter, fruity with citrus and grapefruit notes. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle from Premier Gourmet, served in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a moderate, frothy off-white head. The head fades slowly but leaves copious fine lace. On the nose, there are big, complex hop aromas along with caramel and biscuit malts. The flavour is moderately-intensely bitter with a complex hop profile, balanced against slight caramel malt sweetness. The finish is long and bitter with a slight spicy character. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent pale ale, more robust than many others. It has a beautiful complex hop profile. As I have come to expect from Mikkeller, this is a very well made beer. 2011-01-07

Tap@beer temple. Not exactly pale, more some hazy dark orange to coppery brown ale. Thick solid creamy almost orange to beige head. Aroma is soaked with hops. Mostly floral, some resin and grapefruit. Nice bitter flavor while still very drinkable. Very decent brew.
