(Bottle 16/3-2011) Wonderful hoppy aroma with a nice bitter finish. This is a really good and balanced IPA with some of the best American hop types.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle from EZ. Poured a flat muddy light brown body underneath a giant foamy light beige head. Aroma is awesome with tons of fresh citrus rind, hint of pine sap, grain. The medium body on this is brought down slightly by the distracting super small tight overly bubbly carbonation, mildly lingering bitterness. Flavor of citrus rind, toast, grapefruit and some caramel mats. Nicely done but why the hell do I keep paying these outrageous prices Mikkeller charges??

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Labelled "Green Easter IPA" but is Green Gold. Medium off-white head with nice lacing and hazy amber body. Aroma is grapefruit, citrus, apricot, blackberry, pine with a light, malty background. Taste is a bit dry with medium bitterness. Feels balanced for the style. Medium bodied with some carbonation and lingering mouthfeel. This is a really good IPA, absolutely better than average.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Kohdalleni sattui Mikkeller Green Goldin suhteen supertuore pullo. Olut on punertava ja omaa reilun vaahdon. Tuoksu on tuoreen yrttinen, havuinen, eksoottisen hedelmäinen ja mahtavan raikas. Maku on pehmeän humaloitu ja raikas. Katkera, hedelmäinen, ja monimuotoisen humaloitu. Pihkaa ja havuja löytyy mausta. Mieleeni Mikkeller Goldin mausta tulee aika pahasti Nøgne Ø India Pale Ale eli tuttavallisemmin Nipa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish, some caramel, piney and citrus hoppyness, some fruitiness. Body is average, malty and sweetish flavor, grapefruit and piney hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, grapefruit and piney hoppyness. Nice dryish IPA. Aroma is quite sweetish – aroma and flavor/finish are not in balance.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a billowing off white head with super heavy lacing. Pine hops with a balance of caramel maltiness and a touch of lemon. Fairly resinous pine hops kicks it off, rounds out much like the nose with caramel sweetness and bitter orange peel, finishes a bit peppery and dry with high bitterness. Lively carbonation but smooth nonetheless. Very good IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from EZ liquors. Pours out a cloudy, well carbonated copper with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of pine, citrus hops and some caramel. Taste is some pine and citrus hops, caramel and a sweet and bitter finish. Overall a solid, IPA, but I found myself looking for more from Mikkeller, especially at the numbers they get price wise.
