Bottle@Home. Sweet grapefruit aroma. Hazy, yellow, firm off-white head, good lace. Sweet, very bitter, loads of citrus, grass in the finish, malty. Lots of bubbles, dry mouth feel in the finish. Like a very nice balance between American IIPA and Belgian Triple.

Bottle (33 cl) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Hazy deep golden, medium white head. Fruity, aromatic aroma, clearly brewed with belgian yeast, with notes of tropical fruits. Medium bodied and smooth. Very refreshing, dry with a kind of gentle bitterness, surprisingly for a Mikkeller brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Slightly hazy amber with a smallish, but firm, lasting and lacy head. Quite strongly aromatic-hoppy nose with citrus and axotic fruit, maybe some grass also. Flavor is nicely malty with balanced bitterness and pleasantly aromatic (again exotic fruit, citrus, grass) character. Bitterness hits in the finish, with mostly grass in the aftertaste. Medium body with soft carbonation. Alcohol fully hidden. Quite an interesting brew: like Plevnan Petolintu doubled in gravity, and with a hefty dose of American aroma hops added. Very easy to drink despite the 10% ABV. Maybe slightly stingy, but nothing like the All Others Pale or other cat-pee IPAs. Much better than the GIPA.
