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.

GenkiGonzo (988) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2016
Can from Bradleys. Bright and vibrant gold with a fairly carbonated head. Aroma has loads of citrus fruit hops with tropical notes. Full flavoured with a smooth bitter finish. Dangerously easy to drink.

Alengrin (4247) - BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2016
Classic Mikkeller IPA brewed at the Proef in Belgium, 33 cl bottle, in the regular (non-gluten free) version. Irregular, medium sized, yellowish white, well retaining head, deep and warm orange blonde colour with even a light reddish hue (and therefore unsurprisingly turning deep amber with deposit), completely cloudy from the start. Aroma has a lot of ’old hop’ dankness (stale sweat, even urine) - in fact, a tad too much of it to be as appealing as it could have been; apart from that, I get notes of grapefruit, dried lemon peel, fried egg, sweet curry, pine needles, peach, baker’s yeast, papaja, overripe pineapple, withering spring flowers, damp forest floor even, faint sweet strawberry piercing through. Sweetish and sourish fruitiness in the mouth, papaja, gooseberry, pineapple, pomelo with some grapefruity bitterness already popping up right from the start, with a slight salty edge to it; carbo remains soft and fit for the style, mouthfeel is rounded, supple, slim and a bit oily. Soft, somewhat grainy and lightly bready malt body provides structure enough and balances well with the hop profile, which, as said, can be felt from the start and only grows in intensity towards the end, ensuring a deeply, tonic-water and grapefruit-like, almost completely drying, resinous bittering effect in the finish, yielding lots of piney and dried citrus peel-like retronasal aromas. The earthy effect of these ’older’ hops (at least so it seems) is further reinforced with a strong yeastiness, which is easily identified not just by an earthy flavor and mouthfeel, but also by peach- and gooseberry-like ester aromas still hanging around at the back. I am all for recognizing a ’Belgian IPA’ category here and this one seems to qualify: the hops are clearly (and strongly) of New World signature, but the yeastiness and esteriness is a very Belgian feature. In this respect, this is a tasteful and quaffable IPA for sure, but I cannot help feeling more ’cleansiness’ in its yeast profile would make this - apart from a lot more ’American’ - a lot better... Still, appetizing, nicely drying and bittering IPA, I enjoyed it.

Had it as draft at the Mikkeller Bar Seoul. A: Offish orangy color for the body with a big head of about two fingers with a careful pour. The head is fairly yellowish. Good head retention with lacing Ar: Fresh aroma. Piney, fruity, & floral. Hint of maltiness T: Follows the aroma. A bit malty with bready caramel and noticeble yeastienss on the tongue. Still very hoppy and piney. M: Smooth on the mouth. Creamy and I should say easy-drinking. Aftertaste: Bitter but predominatly sweet.

Enno101 (69) - - MAR 7, 2016
Pours gold, with a thick white 2 finger head. Aroma has a lot of pine present. As it warms a little citrus and grapefruit comes through followed by a caramel sweetness. Good carbonation. More pine in the taste with a heavy bitterness, balanced by a malt/caramel sweetness. A good American IPA. Not too extreme on the bitterness, which I like.

MarkoNm (2194) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 2, 2016
Pours a very hazy, darker shade of orange-amber color, topped with a very generous off-white head. Pretty lasting as well. Very nice and intense fruity aroma - citruses and some sweet fruits, grapefruit, peach and a bit of lichi. Starts a bit on the sweet side with moderate hoppy bitterness developing later on. A tad soury in the finish. Gentle but very lasting bittery aftertaste. Medium light and very nice.
