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.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle at home from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. It has been a long time and this green bastard has been asked for over and over again. So nice that Mikkeller decided to brew it again. Thanx. The pour (In a Mikkeller Stella glass) is brown with red tones. The inch high head is off-white and stays where it is supposed to. The nose is new cutted lawn mover grass with citric notes in minor key topped with some malt and sugar. The american hopnotes are wunderschön. The taste is fresh round and relatively mild takin in mind the hoppy monster it is. Its sweetness is perfectly balanced with the bittersweet hops and leaves lot of room to the malty flavour to play around. The finish is sweet but bitter with a creamy and fulled body palate Green gold - is like the Hulk - a bad ass in disguise - when the inside is revealed you have no chance but letting the monster drag you down..fantastic IPA

Bottle. Dark red. Creamy white head. Highly drinkable but rather thin IPA. Citrus hops and sweet malt in combination.

finol (2098) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle from Ölbutikken. Pours mahogny with a little head. Lots of cookies and slightly oily, even though it is fresh (2months after bottling) I think it could have used some more citrusy hops.

JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2009
Aroma is pleasent and strong. Flavor is too much noise-guitar on the tongue for my tastes. A nice beer for the price. Purchased for 50dkr in Ølbaren (tap)

fschoening (6) - DENMARK - OCT 13, 2009 does not count
Beatiful color! Almost amber. Initial aroma indistinguishable caramelly. Beautiful bottledesign. Definately citrus hints - can’t taste peaches, though, as others here. Perfect bittery finish - keeps making me want another sip, and now it’s almost empty..!

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours slight hazy copper coloured with a nice bubbly and lasting off white head. Aromas of blackcurrant, pine, peach, caramel and citrus fruit. Flavours of caramel, toffee, grapefruit, citrus, resin and peaches. Extremely crisp and easy drinkable. Another classic from Mikkeller. Boy I’ve missed this one.

MrGGen (306) - ITALY - SEP 25, 2009
Colore ambra scuro velato,abbastanza scura per una IPA.Schiuma cremosa,persistenza media.Al naso risulta carica di agrumi e malto.Sapore di luppolo,piacevolmente dolce con richiami di frutta.Finale amaro ma bilanciato.Ottima

jesperhammer (2815) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2009
25-SEP-2009, bottle @home. Dark dark hazy amber - surprisingly dark for an IPA - almost dark brown with nice tan head. Top character here. The nose is perfect IPA. Loads of citrus and pine at first. Then some malt as well. Same hoppy taste, with nice sweetness, and some fruity notes as well. Massively bitter, but nicely balanced by the malty sweetness. I love iPA, and this is a perfect example.

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen, bottled 11.09.09. Beautiful shiny red orange with a tan, lacing creamy head. Potent, fresh hops aroma. Citrus and grassy aroma and flavours. Very fresh, hoppy flavours, solid bitterness. No compromising balance, just mad hop worship. Expected maybe a fuller body. This is the ultimate harvest beer. Greener it cannot be.
