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.

Stefano (1864) - 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.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2007

radiomgb (2182) - 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 (8997) - 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.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Yesper, JK, hellomynameis and others put together one hell of a sampler for us. Lightly hazy amber color with plenty of head. Slightly malty nose is dominated by intense hops. Fruity malt character and a hoppy finish with thick mouthfeel.

mds (2194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle. Pours an orange-amber body with a white soapy head. The aroma is leafy with a good dose of grapefruit and oranges. There is also some bready cereal and light caramel. The body is warming and fairly dry - grape skins and grapefruit pulp flavours along with caramelly butterscotch. Well balanced aside from a bit of alcohol peaking through.

Guerde (1161) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2007
(thanks to yespr and the mpls crew for sharing) Pours amber with an off-white head. Very citrusy smell with some caramel in there too. Nice sweet malt flavor up front followed by a roasty element finishing with some bitter grapefruit and lemon. Pretty much a thicker version of the Stateside IPA.

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
Am amber beer with a nice off-white head. Aroma of mint, diesel, caramel and alcohol. Harshly bitter in the flavour with a taste of mint, caramel and grape (!).
