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.

33cl bottle. Pours hazy brownish orange with thin but long-lasting off-white egg-white-foamy head that leaves thick swaths of lace on the sides of the glass. Aroma is resiny hoppy with syrupy tangy rich dark fruit malts and a hint of funky earthiness. Flavor starts hoppy with pine and resin and hints of bitter citrus. The thick malt character blends with acidic citrusy grapefruit bitterness into an unusual bitter orange candy finish. There is an earthy and slightly acidic dryness that forms on the middle of the tongue near mid-palate. Dry bready malts emerge as the tongue acclimates to the strong bitterness. The finish is long with a bitter hoppy after-taste. The mouthfeel is sharply carbonated and brisk with a very thick ropey texture and medium-full body. Overall, the beer is interesting and tasty at first - but not incredibly drinkable - intense and both brutal and cloying at the same time. Good, but not quite great.

Bottle split with baby streetsy. Pour is a dark amber, almost a brown hue. Tastes rich and complex. Malty base, lots of hops.. Tastes like luxury.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2011 Like the man says, Mikkeller er klar med endnu en IPA, der ikke er bange for at leve op til navnet. Golden brown pour with massive pillowy head. Orange-bread and hops on the nose. Delicious. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Head settles to 1/2 inch or so, leaving glass from central casting. Very balanced. Very nice. If Mikkeller were a sneaky hot brunette librarian with a swimmer’s body underneath that understated label, I’d marry her. Er, him.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Kind of an odd duck, but pretty good. Served with a very large, foamy, frothy, light tan head that lasted a long time and lots of lace. Color is a hazy medium amber. Aroma is a pungent blend of caramel, citrus hop, malt, yeast. Flavor is like nose and oddly, despite how full flavored it is, still balanced in some odd sense. Body is full, good and carbonation is a bit on the light side. Finish is like flavor, of medium length.

Juelze (1139) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Pours a cloudy rich amber color with thick head with orange-tinged head. Aroma is of ripe fruit, citrus, hops, and light grassy notes. Taste is light clementines, light lemon, grapefruit and light flaky biscuit malt. Rich carbonation, full bodied, and simple delicious. Well done.

Bottle from Greens. Deep orange pour with a big white fizzy head, lots of carbonation. Good retention. Aroma was juicy citrus fruits, big pine presence, fresh as can be. Beautiful. Lots of citrus from top to bottom, super clean all around. Oily mouthfeel with tingly carbonation. Medium bitter in the finish, smooth. Very well done. Another excellent offering from Mikkeller.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 28, 2010
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a semi-transparent golden amber. Big bubbles on a 1-inch head, quickly subsiding to a patchy coating. Aroma is gloriously hoppy: pine, grassy, dank, with hints of orange -- in addition to nice caramel malts. Taste is super bitter, full of the goodness of hops. It explodes on your tongue and sparkles like a good fireworks display. Aftertaste is bitter, finish is long and somewhat dry, mouthfeel is full and oily. This is a brilliant example of an American-style IPA, and I think a lot of stateside brewers are wishing they could create such an amazing brew.
