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.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Courtesy dsnowden. Slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head. Interesting aroma - strong, sweet, almost candied, hop aroma. Taste not as sweet as anticipated. Hops are moderately strong, grapefruity and the finish was slightly peppery and lingered nicely on the palate. Interesting aroma, well-done IPA.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Courtesy dsnowden. Thanks for sharing Dan!! Pours a hazy gold, with a small white head. Very floral aroma, the hops were subtle, but pleasant and inviting smelling. The flavor was slightly unusual. It had a bunch of clove and other spices to go with the slightly bitter hops. Not your typical IPA, but was refreshingly interesting and very tasty. Finish was crisp and clean, anothewr gem from these guys.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Poured a glowing orange color, Aroma is odd. Described by Ibrew 2or3or more as "green" which seems to work. There seems to be a dominant grassy, hay like component, yielding slightly to a toasted maltiness. Flavor is a bit more intense than the aroma inidcates. The hops come through a bit stronger here. Nice toasted flavor on the finish.

Stefano (1865) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2007
Light golden amber colour with a fast diminishing head. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty with some fruity esters, and a hint of grapefruit and pine from the hops. Slightly warming and a bit dry finish.

radiomgb (2223) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Golden amber in colour, long lasting off-white coloured head, great lacing. The aroma was incredibly hoppy, grapefruit, floral, quite soft, some oranges. The flavour is again quite hoppy with oranges and grapefruits as the forefront, bread and a caramel sweetness take you into the finish. Dry and bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes very long, bitter and dry. This is an incredible IPA, so soft and smooth but very bitter and dry at the same time. Wonderful balance.

660ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>MPA, thanks Mads.
Opened on October 19, 2007.
Best before July 21, 2008.

FatPhil (9152) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2007
UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 660ml bottle (Porvoo Harvest/Dark Beer Festival 2007) (8:3:6:2:13=3.2)
cloudy orange, small head. huge full bodied english hoppy beer aroma, absolutely wonderful! alas the taste is excessively hopped, which detracts from the tasty malty backdrop. slightly marmitey
Rerate: 330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn) (7:4:7:4:13)
Lovely hoppy aroma still, but not wowing me as much as last time. Body much more balanced this time. A nice rich roast, pleasant caramel sweetness, some zesty citrus. Good bitter finish, but not astringent. Lemon too, in spades. Pretty drinkable, but a little sticky from sweetness. Nice one. But very similar to a lot of their others.
