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.

hawthorne00 (3420) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle (bb 3/13). Dirty amber with a huge light beige head that fades to a rocky 2cm. Aroma of nectarines, grapefruit, mandarins, pine, biscuity malt. Taste is quite sweet and fruity - apricots more than nectarines - with earthy yeast before sharpish aromatic bitterness that is more pine than citrus. Big lingering bitterness. I was expecting that clean but substantial malt side of the single hop series brewed at this site and found its replacement a bit dirty and unfocussed. Good hops, but rather untidy.

Mortlach (1870) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 30, 2011
31/07/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Ambrata carica, intensa, con riflessi arancia, lieve cappello di schiuma bianco sporca, morbida e poco persistente. Al naso aroma perfettamente bilanciato di malto caramellato e luppolo, agrumato e intenso. I bocca è ottimamente bilanciata, malto e luppolo convivono perfettamente, una leggera nota caramellata, quindi un secco agrumato, resinoso, pinoso. Corpo medio, carbonazione generosa. Ottima IPA.

notalush (5707) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Tap at Mayor of Old Town - hazy gold - extremely dry IPA, exploding with citrus and dank earthiness - lemon and orange rind - pine resin - some Biscuity maltiness underneath it all the give those hops something to cling to - an excellent IPA.

popery (1947) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
From notes. One of the better Mikkeller IPAs that I’ve tried, but not my favorite. Pours a fairly dark amber-orange with a beige head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Big notes of grass, wildflowers, lemons, tangerines, minerals and earth. There’s a pretty strong caramel malt flavor, as well. The taste has a lot of that same caramel malt and European-ish hops. It’s a bit more of a hop nectar than I normally prefer, but Mikkeller is much better at crafting this type of IPA than most brewers, so it still works pretty well. Pretty thick on the palate for the abv. Good stuff.

Boutip (5795) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle: Poured a cloudy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of earthy hops is dominating with some medium notes of dry caramel malt. Taste is dominated by earthy hops notes which are quite pleasant though I prefer more citrus oriented IPA. Body is quite full with limited filtration and good carbonation. Well brewed and packs a good hops punch without being a one-dimensional bitter bomb.

HonusWagner (2010) - Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2015 A pretty run of the mill citrusy ipa with a bit more caramel malt sweetness than I’d like. Could be better, could be worse; would prefer to try on draft. Pretty much the same in the can as it was years ago in the bottle: too malty to be my style of IPA, but not bad.

POurs caramel colored with fluffy head. Flavor is perfectly balanced with equal parts creaminess and pithy citrus notes. Gorgeous brew.

daknole (10837) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Hazy brownish/gold pour. Creamy head. I get a mix of citrus hops, earthy tones, bread, caramel malt, and a nutty and honey aroma. Flavor is quite hoppy, bitter, resin, citrus, and the malt in the nose is lighter in the flavor than I would have thought. Nice.

RexTalionis (3475) - FINLAND - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Poured dark amber in colour with a massive slightly tanned thick and creamy head. Sweet, lots of piney notes, grassy hops and some tropical flowers in aroma. Very pleasant so far. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Flavour grassy and malty mixed quite strong pine and grapefruit taste. Easy to drink and no sign of the abv. Nice grassy aftertaste with a hint of tropical sweet fruityness. Highly enjoyable brew.
