COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mikkeller’s tribute to the green gold.

Mikkeller er klar med endnu en IPA, der ikke er bange for at leve op til navnet. Humlen er som den skal være: aromatisk, amerikansk og aggressiv, så man ikke er i tvivl om hvad man nyder. For nyde er hvad Green Gold ligger op til. Karamelmaltens sødme og fylde danner en lækker bund, der rammer smagsløgene, inden humleeksplosionen sætter ind, og som rydder op igen, og balancerer det samlede indtryk, så man kun har lyst til én ting, nemlig endnu en tår. De lækre amerikanske humler simcoe, amarillo og cascade giver masser af citrusnoter, men kæler også for din tunge med fersken og grannuancer samt masser af friskhed.

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Can: The aroma moderate perfume/soap, grass, caramel, light grapefruit, and lemon. It pours a transparent dark amber with a large orange tinted off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is a lot of sticky lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate caramel and fruit. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, floral notes, and a touch of grass. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. While I generally don’t like caramel in my IPAs, it works here in the flavor. I wasn’t digging the perfume/soap in the aroma though.

ClearHead (5) - FINLAND - JUL 4, 2016 does not count
330ml bottle. Nice head. Light amber, good color for a pale ale. Aroma has citrus, tropical fruit, pine. Very nice. Bitterness finely balanced, develops a moderately dry finish. A balanced taste of tropical fruit and citrus with a bit of pine. A touch of sweetness from the caramel malts. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol does not overpower in spite of the high percentage (7.0%). An excellent IPA. I am sure it is not perfect, but would be hard pressed to suggest any improvements. It would take some effort to get fed up with this ale...

Grzesiek79 (3937) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 11, 2016
330ml bottle. Piana spora skrzepowata do tego trwala. Kolor jak amber Ale, metne, szaro pomaranczowe. Piekny aromat suszonych polnych kwiatow. W smaku grejfruty, fermentujace pomarancze, papaja, ogolnie sporo cytrusow, nieco karmelowej slodyczy, ale generalnie warstwa chmielowa przytlacza wszystko. Piwo bardzo tresciwe i wyraziste.

PabloZab (1105) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Butelka 330ml (12.05.2017). Piwo delikatnie zmętnione o ciemno bursztynowej barwie. Piana lekko żółtawa, jest obfita, dość trwałą i wyraźnie oblepia ścianki szkła. Aromat słodkawy z nutami żywicy, owoców tropikalnych i wyraźnymi nutami karmelu, które bardzo fajnie współgrają z nutami chmielowymi. Goryczka średnia minus o charakterze żywiczno-ziołowym z lekkim akcentem alkoholu, krótka w czasie i praktycznie niezalegająca. Po drugiej stronie wyraźna, słodkawa kontra karmelowo-tropikalna. Piwo jest dość pijalne jak na swój woltaż choć ciało zostało wyraźnie zaznaczone. Całkiem niezła IPA, bardziej w stylu east, ale też nie rzuca na kolana.
