Golden orange with small white head. Aroma citrus hops, slight pine background. Medium body, touch of alcohol. Flavor is mostly grapefruit and grass-like hops with off-dry malty finish. Pretty good although not quite ideal.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden copper with a frothy white head and tons of lace. Aroma of bit citrus hops, grapefruit, lemongrass, pine, resin and a good balanced of sweet pale caramel malts to support. Taste is big and hoppy lemon hops, grassy, piney and citrusy with caramel malt flavors to balance. Excellent easy drinking ipa.

Grapefruit accent, but a heavier feel than I am normally used to. Not a go to.

Smells like lemon pledge. Very murky pale yellow body. Some yeast chunks floating. Very lemony taste. Bitter beer. Not really that good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atl Hwy). Light floral, fruity nose. Medium straw color with a fluffy white head. Mild peachy initial,with some other rougher fruit creeping in / mild bittering in mid / thin bitterness and then a pleasant, mostly sweet, sort of balance in finish. Medium body. Tasty. An interesting hybrid style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy golden. Aroma is quite odd. Some skunk, sourness, grass, malts and citrus fruits. Taste is light sour and medium bitter. Medium body with soft carbonation. Maybe slightly infected. Or simply not very good. Itís mikkeller so you never know I guess.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a pint glass. Big, lemongrass aromas with some sweet citrus. Itís a golden-amber color, but itís a lot more cloudy than Iíd expect from an IPA. Itís got a frothy, white head that doesnít go anywhere. This beer has some really great balance for an IPA. Itís pleasantly sweet on the front end with a nice hop backbone that reminds you that itís definitely an IPA. This is my first Mikkeller beer, and Iíll be coming back for more!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single bottle purchased from Ardmore Bottle Shop. Aroma is similar to Chouffe Houblon, albeit a little more tame. "german" style presumably comes from the pale malt and hop varietals used. Appearance is a little hazier than your typical" Belgian", but still golden with minimal head (think Flying Fish Exit 4 American Trippel). Notes of grass, hay, lemon zest, earthy hops and perceptible yeast. Really interesting beer. Doesnít really fall into the IPA category in my opinion. Definitely a dry beer with a crisp, almost spicy character. A gender bender for sure. Nice work from a brewery that doesnít care much for conventional norms (at least with their beer!).
