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.

Drake (11605) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Butters at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a clear copper color with a huge frothy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of big citrus and earthy hops and caramel malts. The taste is citrus, grapefruit, candied citrus and faint caramel malts. Bitter finish. Medium bodied.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass. Pours very murky deep amber/copper, really green cast to this beer, both in the colour of the beer itself and in the head. Pervasively green color, very odd. Head itself is thick and persistent, 2 fingers thick at least, with lovely lacing. Nose is green, sticky hop pellets, really like sticking your nose in a hop bag, full of Centennial or Cascade. Some sweetness underneath, but mostly just big, sticky hops. Flavours are big, bold, and very sweet, but just as intensely bitter. This is your classic "BIG" IPA, lots of caramel, lots of bitterness, not a style of IPA I particularly like, but regardless, this is well-done in this breed of IPA. Well-balanced, in the way an anti-aircraft gun can be well-balanced, with loads of powerful pine and scintillating citrus, the finish is too sweet for me, however. Lovely, and right in line with what they were trying to accomplish, I am sure, but not for me.

Davros (2746) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2011
Pours dark coppery brown. Nose shows pine, green apples, grapefruit and pineapple. Also some biscuity and sweet clean malt. Similarly fruity flavours, also the piney notes. Then that biscuity malt follows before a powerful, sharp bitterness rolls through. Nice moderately high carbonation.

stewac01 (62) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2011
Pours hazy apricot gold. Aromas of relatively restrained juicy hops - marmalade, melon and pine. Nice nutty caramel malt backing, even hints of vanilla and chocolate in there. Flavour is hop dominated but still surprisingly balanced. Mouthfeel is full, almost creamy which is a bit strange for style but works really well. Finishes with a really soft bitterness. Very drinkable but overall I expected a little bigger and brighter hops.

Strong citrus, some grass and herbs. Beautiful browness. Very bitter, medium sourness. Average carbonation. Best IPA you can buy now in Finland in stores.

hawthorne00 (3466) - 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.
