Dark amber with a nice head. Really a lot of "green" hops in this one. Nice bitterness and a oily body. A fresh and very drinkable IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2011 Aroma: Sweet malts, boozy, lots of earthy hops, grapefruit, resin, citric, tropical fruits, passionfruit, lychee.
Appearance: hazy ambe rcolour, medium off-white head, lacing.
Flavour: big bite, onslaught of bitterness, warming alcohol, heavy maltbase. The hops are earthy and not that fruity, resin and pine dominate.
Mouthfeel: Rather smooth, small lively bubbles.
Total: Solid IPA, but i prefer a less overwhelming maltbase in my IPAs this is verging on DIPA territory.

Molt amarga i una olor espectacular. Acabes la cervesa, tornes a olorar l’ampolla i continua sent una olor fantàstica.

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??

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.
