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.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2015 2015-04-22. Hazy dark amber body, nice foamy beige head and lace. 3+ Aroma of green hops and caramel malt. Flavour is fairly bitter throughout, with a good amount of malt in the core. Caramel and toffee notes. Lingering bitter green hops in the finish. Average plus to medium bodied palate, modest carbonation. The hops don’t really shine past the malty core for me. Possibly showing some age? 6/3/7/3/14+ Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

2011-08-10. Hazy dark orange amber body, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is pleasant, nice melange of hops, muted sweet citrus. Bitterness grows in the finish, nice sweet malt undercurrent. Kiss of caramel notes, modest alcohol. 7+ Mild alcohol in the aroma as well, resiny hops, green notes. 7+ Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. 3+ Pretty nice! 8/3/7/3/16 - 3.7 Mikkeller IPA Tasting at Cole’s, Buffalo

OldGrowth (3139) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2011
pint at Tyler’s Apex. good aroma, bitter sweet, citrusy pine scents. Clean brownish orange color, no head or lace. Bitter flavor. Medium body, oily creamy mouthfeel. bitter finish. good, though I guess in the scheme of things I’m not a fan of the hops they choose to use, seems to be signature, so maybe it’s a yeast thing I dunno, but this impressed me more than my last Mikkeller

thb (797) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Pours a swampy orangey-brown with mountains of lingering foamy head. Looks like some belgian trappist deal. Aroma is amazing - big citrus, fruity hops. This packs a serious flavour punch - sweet caramel malts tied to an intense, lingering bitterness. Alcohol shows itself maybe more than I’d like but it does add to the intensity. Thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel.

robinvboyer (3995) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
Murky brown pour, big beige head, very sticky lacing. Aroma is a hoppunch to the face. Soapy, resinous, and some good chewy malts. Flavor is pungent and the bitterness is quite strong, but it fades quickly to a light citrus sweetness.

joeneugs (5451) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours dark orange almost amber with a huge orangy/khaki mountainous head. The aroma has some fruity peach and grapefruit along with some grassiness and a but of skunk. Perhaps this is a bit lightstruck or old. The flavor is smooth and rich with lots of sweet tropical fruit and some spicy hops. Low carbonation. This tastes a bit old, but still flavorful with a nice complex hoppiness and full body. I would love to try a fresh bottle.

Sampled at Blue Monk’s Mikkeler Hop Series tasting 8/11. Nose is caramel, lemon & orange, tangerine, candied mango. Flavor is caramel, lemon & berries, tangerine. Superior to all of the single hop beers we tried that day.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 21, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy chestnut brown, with a mid-sized off-white head, which lasts reasonably well, and leaves good lacing. Strong, oily pine hops dominate the aroma, but are supported by berry and sourdough notes. Powerful hops introduce the beer, with a sizeable helping of lime, pepper and spice to start. Toffee and some sweeter fruit notes smooth it out into the body, which is in turn overcome by pine, grapefruit and pepper hops to finish. An excellent IPA, with just the right balance of bitterness and body, and another top effort from Mikkeller.
