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.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2010
bottle. Potent hop oils over cloudy/hazy IPA. Doesn’t look good; luckily smells great, even then not as HUGE as most IPA. Drinkable w/ a pleasant bitterness. Floral & fun. Expensive thou, points lost there.

vyvvy (3880) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Pours hazy dark brown / bronze with an off-white head. The aroma is biscuit / caramel maltiness along with some funky hops along with citrus and floralness. Medium smooth body turns resiny with lots of micro carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth grapefruit, earth and pine hoppiness. It is then joined by toasty caramel malt that gives a balance, but it is still hop forward. The finish is dry and resiny with lots of pine, pine cone, earth and grapefruit rind that coats the tongue. A rock solid fantastic IPA.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2010
The bottle cap on this beer is printed with 02/03/12. Aroma:Sweet with the smell of freshly cut grass. A little bit of alcohol. Appearance:Fantastic head that is slow to dissipate. Amber in color. Hazy. Taste:The first taste hits hard with sweetness and hoppyness. The hops are rather subtle in flavor (but not with bitterness). Towards the midtaste, I get a little bit of peach or apricot that sticks around through the aftertaste. Palate:Nice low to medium body. Nice carbonation. A slight astringent bite that makes this beer more refreshing. Overall:This is a subtle IPA that’s very pleasant to drink. I’d drink this again.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Definitely named right. Very hoppy green taste. Tastes like what a classic double/triple IPA is like. Heavy on the hops. Malty and toasted. Excellent bitter finish. Mikkeller = Beer genius.

Slightly hazy amber colour with tiny off-white head. Sweet bitter hoppy aroma with pine. Flavour is sweet butterscotch and dark bitter hops. Good combination. Long-lasting bitter hops in aftertaste.

JohnnyJ (4254) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Draft. Dark golden amber, white head. Sweet caramel malt, piney hops, slightly fruity and resinous, overall this beer is more malt centered for the style. Not that great.

JorisPPattyn (7807) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle sampled clearly marks itself as brewed & bottled @ De Proefbrouwerij in Belgium. Very huge, dense, fine yellow head over hazy orange-amber beer. Fruity nose (passion fruit), caramel, cake, waffle syrup, lunaria, nectarines. Bitter, but buffered by caramelly malts, hops, less fruity than the nose; something like raw nutmeg. Faint burning MF, medium bodied, very slick to bit oily feel, and extraordinary long bitter aftertaste, bit harsh. Certainly not bad, if a tad harsh, but all in all it’s the umpteenth Mikkeller IPA...
