4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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..!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
