Shared with Hrabren and Habek! Nice misty dark golden-amber body with a small off white head. Light honeyish malty aroma, vaguely dank, peach?. Taste... Honey, drying out into herbal/lemon-peach ice tea and what the hell did I just write. But yeah. That. Not much bitterness, missing that, but generally not bad. Iíve had better attempts at this style of IPA.

GJF (1316) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 18, 2015
Can at Lincoln Wine Bar. Amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of caramel and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, and citrus. Itís good, but certainly not one of the best Mikkellers Iíve had.

alobar (2991) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2015
Pours cloudy amber color with off-white creamy head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and bread. Caramel, toasted malt, bread flavor with hint of pine and hop bite. Very nice beer.

floydslip (231) - Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2015
Nice looking deep amber beer with a medium foamy light tan head. Hoppy nose of pine resin, citrus, and hay. Nice blast of juicy hops up front, which is bracing, but little supports it. Would have liked more malt to offset a bit. As the bitterness lingers it becomes a bit harsh with nothing to counterbalance. Decent, not great.

jrodooo5 (1151) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pretty copper pour w/ a big retaining tan head that leaves lacing. The aroma has a delicate hop presence. The mouthfeel is light & creamy but reminds you in the finish that this indeed is an ipa. The flavor is clean until the hops really kick in at the end. Pretty good stuff!

callmemickey (3385) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Dark amber body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Caramel and bready malts, earthy and resinous hops with a hint of floral notes. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, assertive bitterness, a tad sweet and chewy.

12oz can from some bodega looking shop in Boston. Poured a rather dark amber, clear, with a larger foamy white head. Aroma is meh, bready, malty, sweet, nut shells. Flavor is a touch more earhty than the aroma olus some dirty hop cones. Medium body, average carbonation a bit quicker fading aftertaste.
