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.

On draught@Mikkeller bar, Copenhagen. Hazy reddish brown looks with a creamy mid sized tan head. Lookin’ good. Hops aplenty in the nose married with some sweetness and tropical fruit notes. Had a feeling this was going to be the bomb and the taste certainly didn’t disappoint. Supremely fresh flavour that struck a sublime balance and allowed the hops to shine brightly. Could chug away on this until the bleedin cows come home. An all round winner.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2011
12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a deep, clear amber with a frothy beige head that recedes very slowly to a thick cap and leaves delicate lacing along the sides. Aroma is juicy with pithy grapefruit and some sweeter citrus notes as well. There is more than a hint of caramel and a touch of lemongrass as it warms. The taste is bitter up front with the grapefruit taking on a much more abrasive character. The malts are present but overshadowed by the hop blast. The finish is drier than I was expecting. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter, but still with a bit of sugary sweetness lingering as well. This is a solid IPA that’s not exactly balanced as the hops are definitely abrasive and bitter. Still, Mikkel knowns his way around IPAs.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2011
From tap@Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Cloudy reddish amber body. A finger of coarse blond foam on top. Zesty and resinous hop aroma, and a whiff of subdued semi-dry malts. Taste has a medium to heavy bitterness. Oily, with citrus and tropical notes. Strong, fairly sweet malty backbone. More than medium full. Lasting hop bitter ending. A rock solid IPA.

Tap at Lompa. Dark reddish color with a soft foamy beige head. Malty nose with citrus, taste of fruity hops, orange, floral palate. At 7% it’s a very good ipa

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2011
Murky light brown with a big tanned head. Very green flavours, thogh not raw or unpolished in any way. Light fruitiness battling grass and flowers. Good body, with biscuits and caramel with a perfect, balancing light sweetness.

espenra (925) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2011
8cl sample. Wonderful amber colour. Small head. Aroma is hoppy and laden with tropical fruits as one would expect, but also a sweet malty aroma with notes of alcohol. Flavour is rich and laden with alcohol and malts. Not as much hops as expected, but it’s also present. Fruity. Long, lingering bitter aftertaste.

esp0r (2370) - NORWAY - FEB 7, 2011
Tap at Haandverkerstuene. Copper red hazy with a thin white head. Some nice lacings. Smells of sweet orange peels and grass. Taste is bitter with a slight feel of citrus. and some malts. Finish is full of hops. Some ways this has more of a double/imperial ipa feel. but also feels like an ipa. interesting

Tasted on tap at Henrik Øl & Vinstove. A good and sweet malt base punished with loads and loads of citrus hop. Pours golden/amber with moderate and golden head.

ClubGonzo (4724) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
Tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a thick, tan, nitro-like dense head, resting majestically above a deep, bronze body. Lovely. Nose: fresh, green hops, grass, hints of peaches and spruce. Lovely lovely. Taste is full-bodied malts and bitter, grassy hops, peaches and spruce. Smooth palate. Long-lasting bitter finish. A real top-of-the-line IPA. Three times lovely for this one. :-)
