3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really shocked I’ve not rated this yet. Murky vibrant orange, eggshell ringed thick head. Big US malt sweetness on the nose, firmly hoppy but little else. Initial taste of syruppy hop sweetness, rich and nutty like a bowl of Crunchy Nut left on the windowsill until you get home from work. Thick malty sweetness, creamy burn cooling edge in the middle reaffirms this. Peppery, perfumed vibe laminates the full mouthfeel. Harmonious hop finish and a fading malt sweetness on the peppery linger.

An enjoyable pleasure from Mikkeller. A Golden IPA with a creamcoulered had. A balanced aroma with a streng, but not agressive taste of hops. There is a god balance between the caramelmalt and the citrus in the simcoe, amarillo and cascade.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to Homer, as Green Easter IPA. A bit of a gusher on the pour, not too bad. Pours murky hazel, medium creamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is malty, nutty, caramel, biscuit, pine, citrus. Flavor is quite sweet, malty with light bitterness and some pine. Finish is bitter. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Drinks a lot more like an american barley wine than an IPA, frankly. Meh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Keg at Brewdog Shepherds Bush, London. A murky dark amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, malty, caramel, fruity aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, malty, caramel, citrus fruit, slight bitterness and sweetness. Complex, rich and downright tasty, my kind of beer.

Keg @ Euston Tap. Citrus nothingness. A bit old maybe and not surprised at that price. Need to try a fresh bottle for a proper rating.
