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.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2008
660ml bottle purchased at the one and only Ølbutikken in Copenhagen in August last year and enjoyed at home on a Friday eve for an hour or so. A frothy, mostly lasting off-white head supported by fair lacing rests on a slightly hazy, deep orange body. Smooth hoppy to the nose with spruce notes. The flavour is a composition of spicy hops and orange shells layered with moderate malty sweetness and ending with lingering bitterness. Soft mouthful. A tasty sipper, but I must admit that I had expected more. Some living refreshment is missing. But maybe I’m far too pampered with the great brews from Mikkeller (15.02.2008).

this is one of my favourite danish brews, it has all that an ipa should have: hops hops and hops.. beautiful to behold an easy on the tounge, but not too easy if you know what i mean.

This one poured a golden color with a thin white head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is of citrus fruits, floral hops, toasted grains and spices. The sweet malts show themselves first followed with the floral and piney hops. There is a good amount of spices in there as well. This one is medium bodied that was easy drinking that had a crisp, dry finish to it. This was an interesting take on this style.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 Pours a cloudy amber color with a thick beige head. Pleasant aroma of resinous, green and spicy hops with earthy, toasted malt. Solid flavor of resinous, green and spicy hops with earthy, toasted malt and medium bitterness in the finish. The body is medium with a creamy texture and soft to medium carbonation. This is a quite solid IPA, I remember drinking this a couple years ago, it’s nice to try it again and it’s still as good as it was.

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Noogfest A big, fluffy, off-white head forms easily over this clear, dark gold bodied brew. Subtle hop aroma. A big bitterness arrives early in the flavor department and leaves the malts trying to catch up the whole time. A bit out of balance to me.

Pours a golden color with a small white head.Nose was flowery and grassy.Flavor was quite a mix of bitterness with a touch of bitterness.The hoppines had a bite at the end that lingered for a bit.

hopscotch (8914) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2007 Bottle... O-Town Throwdown Part Tres... Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Earthy, funky nose first smells of caramel, then smells of sweaty socks and leather... in a good way? A bit of a stretch, but the best I can do. The flavor is caramel sweetness followed closely by medium, earthy bitterness with just a pinch of salt. Medium-bodied and astringent with modest carbonation. Coarse, Mojave-dry finish. Thanks go out to TheCheeseMan for supplying the bottle!

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pours deep gold with a slight haze and off white head. The aroma is very green and shrub-like with a mild dash of flower pedals. The taste starts with a brief sweet maltiness that quickly gets covered by green shrubbery, some floral hops and a trickle of malt sweetness. The hop bitterness grows with floral and spicy hops. It ends with a tasty Munich pale maltiness. Very cool interpretation of the style. A mild hop bitterness persists into the after taste.

coldbrewky (1419) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Bomber in trade with Maria. I found this brew to be the least pleasurable of all the Mikkellers I’ve had so far. I think all this contract brewing and hype is playing itself out a bit. Nose is medium with sugary malts and orange peel. Pours a murky syrupy orangish amber funk. The bright white head almost looks out of place. Big punch of malts and then to some teerth biting acidity. finish isn’t lean. This brew is unbalanced and does not flow from start to finish. I felt like I was in traffic.
