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.

Noogfest A big, fluffy, off-white head forms easily over this clear, dark gold bodied brew. Subtle hop aroma. A big bitterness arrives early in the flavor department and leaves the malts trying to catch up the whole time. A bit out of balance to me.

Pours a golden color with a small white head.Nose was flowery and grassy.Flavor was quite a mix of bitterness with a touch of bitterness.The hoppines had a bite at the end that lingered for a bit.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2007 Bottle... O-Town Throwdown Part Tres... Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Earthy, funky nose first smells of caramel, then smells of sweaty socks and leather... in a good way? A bit of a stretch, but the best I can do. The flavor is caramel sweetness followed closely by medium, earthy bitterness with just a pinch of salt. Medium-bodied and astringent with modest carbonation. Coarse, Mojave-dry finish. Thanks go out to TheCheeseMan for supplying the bottle!

Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pours deep gold with a slight haze and off white head. The aroma is very green and shrub-like with a mild dash of flower pedals. The taste starts with a brief sweet maltiness that quickly gets covered by green shrubbery, some floral hops and a trickle of malt sweetness. The hop bitterness grows with floral and spicy hops. It ends with a tasty Munich pale maltiness. Very cool interpretation of the style. A mild hop bitterness persists into the after taste.

coldbrewky (1411) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Bomber in trade with Maria. I found this brew to be the least pleasurable of all the Mikkellers I’ve had so far. I think all this contract brewing and hype is playing itself out a bit. Nose is medium with sugary malts and orange peel. Pours a murky syrupy orangish amber funk. The bright white head almost looks out of place. Big punch of malts and then to some teerth biting acidity. finish isn’t lean. This brew is unbalanced and does not flow from start to finish. I felt like I was in traffic.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Hazy golden body that has deep orange in the center. A small white head leaves behind minor arc lacing. The aroma is filled with grassy hops and adequate though light toasted grain. There is also a Chex cereal grain note. The nose is lightly sweet and lightly acidic. Sweet malts break out first, bitterness following directly afterwards and flowing to the top of the chain. Hops are both grassy and floral, a resiny coating splattering the tongue. Medium-high bitterness, low sweetness, mild acidity. The finish is crisp, clean and highly bitter. The mouthfeel is mildly carbonated, medium bodied, watery pockets. A unique take on the style, nothing impressive resulting, though this does have quite a bit of character and pizazz.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Courtesy dsnowden. Hazy, bright orange-amber body. A minimal, bubbly white head leaves behind random spotted lace. The aroma is very floral and herbaceous. Grassy, floral, and minty hops dance atop a light and sweet caramel malt base. It does indeed smell very green. The flavor shows a toasted caramel base that is moderately sweet. Sage makes an appearance, blending well with faint mint to add a refreshing element. Substantial, but not overpowering, the hops are a mix of floral and grassy flavors. Body is just on the heavy side of medium and very smooth. Finishes somewhat dry and dusty. Refreshing and clean, this is an interesting take on the style.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Courtesy dsnowden. Slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Interesting aroma - strong, sweet, almost candied, hop aroma. Taste not as sweet as anticipated. Hops are moderately strong, grapefruity and the finish was slightly peppery and lingered nicely on the palate. Interesting aroma, well-done IPA.

Courtesy dsnowden. Thanks for sharing Dan!! Pours a hazy gold, with a small white head. Very floral aroma, the hops were subtle, but pleasant and inviting smelling. The flavor was slightly unusual. It had a bunch of clove and other spices to go with the slightly bitter hops. Not your typical IPA, but was refreshingly interesting and very tasty. Finish was crisp and clean, anothewr gem from these guys.

Poured a glowing orange color, Aroma is odd. Described by Ibrew 2or3or more as "green" which seems to work. There seems to be a dominant grassy, hay like component, yielding slightly to a toasted maltiness. Flavor is a bit more intense than the aroma inidcates. The hops come through a bit stronger here. Nice toasted flavor on the finish.
