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.

Draught at the Blue Monk in Buffalo. Pours a cloudy orange almost red colour with small white head and beautiful lacing. Smells hoppy and sweet. Taste bitter initially with a little grapefruit. Juste awesome, love what they’re doing.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. I was very impressed by this. Pours a hazy amber, and smells deeply of pine. Taste has significant honey in it. I was immediately reminded of Bells Hopslam with this one. Almost tasted like a combo IPA/Barleywine.

11.2oz bottle. Muddy deep orange pour with a large and lasting, tight bubbled off-white head. Extremely good lacing though (saves it). Aromas of orange, pine needles, tangerine, grapefruit rind, light hints of alcohol. Malt is a bit on the sweet and distracting side caramel and bready. Lightly tea like. Medium esters. Flavors of citrus, orange, tangerine. Medium bitterness, overall only a slightly bitter balance. Malt bill is a touch flabby, caramel, bready, light leather. A light lingering bitterness. A bit tea like. Some mango in the long duration. Medium esters. Slightly warming. Decently drinkable surprisingly (I generally like the malt presence on my IPA’s to be a little less forward). Surprisingly fresh half way around the world. Medium to slightly fuller bodied, medium carbonation. A good bitter bite in the finish. Tasty.
