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.

Hazy amber gold with a creamy biege head. Honey and fruit aroma, with hints of something that make me think it will be bitter. Very bitter fruit taste, really hangs around the back of the throat. Great drop.

jookos (5043) - FINLAND - SEP 15, 2011
Green grass, raw hop aroma. Probably the strongest fresh, hop-resin, smelling beer I’ve tasted. citrusy, a bit of resin. Very bitter, the hops pretty much overpowering any hints of malts in the taste (or wait, there’s actually something .. a bit of caramel, probably due to the, I assume, long boil). This fruit/malt ratio makes me actually think of a Belgian beer [edit: appears it is brewed in Belgium!]. Somewhat hot, alcohol coming through. This could probably rinse your palate of any food, no matter how greasy, leaving you thinking you’ve lived on hops all week.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2012 pours a nice dark gold/copper color with a nice head to it. citrus based nose with some copper tones, caramel, navel oranges, and some sort of oxidative tones. full bodied with a real good feel. Some hoppy tones along with tones of caramel, oranges and copper. this is okay. There is an oxidative flavor that I couldn’t really get over. A solid IPA but not much more.

toasty warm green with a grassy flavor that comes from hoppy goodness.leather, earthy, floral, medium body, with an enjoyable light bitter on the finish.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2011
The beer in the glass is amber colored with a soapy head that disappears quickly. Mild hoppy, spicy, slightly sweet smell. Starts with a very fruity hop aroma, relatively sweet and caramelly in the background. The middle part shows caramelly, slightly sweet, with lots of citrussy aroma hops! The finish also aroma hoppy with citrussy and caramel bonds. Absolutely horny and very drinkable IPA!

Fin (9224) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2011
Bottle outside Frank (camper) at Bromyard Folk Festival, 11.09.11 This was purchased at Beers of Europe recently Pours amber with a white head that sticks on the way down the glass. Nicely bitter, soft in mouth, good citrus punching through. Very nice beer, but rating a tad sloppy and lazy. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

gramity (1586) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
Pours a hazy copper with a billowing off white head with super heavy lacing. Pine hops with a balance of caramel maltiness and a touch of lemon. Fairly resinous pine hops kicks it off, rounds out much like the nose with caramel sweetness and bitter orange peel, finishes a bit peppery and dry with high bitterness. Lively carbonation but smooth nonetheless. Very good IPA.
