Bottle. Hazy golden body with a huge froth white head. Lovely piney aroma with lots of grass, grapefruit, exotic fruit like passion fruit and peach. Medium bodied. Sweet malty flavour with lots of pine. Caramel, more exotic fruit, pepper, grass and flowers. It ends up very bitter like grapefruit. Very dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with lasting, dense, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, citrus, orange peel, gooseberries and earthy hops. Malty, fruity taste with orange peel, rye bread, dried fruit, apricots, gooseberries, hints of burnt rubber and a generous earthy, citric bitterness in a finish with a slight alcohol glow. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and quite well balanced for its strength. Very nice. (Best before date was 18 Jan 2011, but it felt quite fresh and still highly drinkable.)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Ørsted Ølbar 8/29/09: Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet caramely malt with a citrusy orange and grapefruity hoppy nose. Starts with good rich caramel malty fullness and lots of sweet juicy rapefruity hops before a full bittersweet finish. A pretty well-balanced and enjoyable IIPA.

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.
