3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy pale amber with two fingers of pillowy white head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is tropical fruits, juicy citrus, pine resin, mild pale malt. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body tending to the light, moderate carbonation, with a dry bitter finish. (3/5)
Another Mikkeller IPA with a truly stupid shelf life. What black magic does this guy weave, anyway, that a beer so heavily reliant on a bright hop character can keep so long? Not his best, though - there’s some thinness in the body, which tends a bit to the watery, and the hop bittering feels a little unbalanced. Yes, I usually prefer hop forward, particularly for this style, but this feels like a little more malt sweetness would balance out the juicy citrus tones a little more. As it stands, this starts off feeling a little harsh - though that diminishes as the bottle progresses, and it finishes strong. (15/20)

Tap @ fermentoren. Pours hazy orange with an off white head. The aroma is quite tropical with notes of pineapple, peach, orange, juicy citrusy hops, weak malts in the background and pretty west coast forward overall! The taste has a nice amount of juicy bitter hops along with some sweetness from the malts. Grapefruit, pine, eucalyptus, peach, and orange as well. Nice!
