Draught@Kuikka. Slightly cloudy copper color, off-white head. Strongly hopped flavor, lemon rind, syrupy finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Bit too hoppy for my taste.

12 oz bottle from Rosses bottle shop in Barcelona. Pours orange/brown and cloudy with nice white head. Nice hop aroma and piney, resinous flavors. Very hoppy and bitter (in a good way). Another great Mikkeller beer.

Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly hazy amber color. Thin bubbly white head. Good ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation, a lot of caramel malt in the flavor, good resiny hop character, though. Bigger bitterness, little sweetness. Nice biscuity malt flavor. Lightly slick finish. Sort of dry texture, though. Interesting, resiny IPA, malty too, but a nice malt profile. Very flavorful overall.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; malty though. A slightly cloudy brownish orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells like a malt bomb with some hops too. Tastes Iike it smells with an average mouthfeel. A underwhelming example of the style.

Great IPA. The hops taste of everything - citrus, pine, floral with medium bitterness. Like other Mikkeller IPAs it has a full, smooth malt also. Strong all round.

Bottle from Brewdog online shop. Pours quite dark for an IPA, good white head. Aromas of tropical fruits and resin, big hoppiness. Good bitter taste and finish too. Good US-style IPA.

An average IPA and certainly not in the American tradition. Less hop, more malt - but thats’ not a bad thing. Earthy flavors are more pervasive here.

Den här var riktigt bra! Kraftig beska med lång eftersmak. Viss sötma. Bra balans.

Unusual IPA. Not sure how fresh my bottle was but still an interesting beer. Dark murky brown, like a witch’s cauldron. Nice foamy off white head and lacing. Really nice sweet malty barley-wine like aroma. Taste is cocoa, sweet malts, a touch of hops. Not a typical American IPA, but a pretty nice beer nonetheless. As I’m drinking more of this I keep thinking this is a barley wine with a bit of hops.
