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.

Botle. Pours a clear, dark golden body with a small off-white head. Lovely hoppy nose with pine, resin and some citrus. A bit low on malty aromas I think, but pleasant. Pine and resin dominates the flavor, but there’s also a good maltyness giving it balance. Good bitterness too, and full body. A pleasant, easy drinkable beer, surprisingly balanced for a Mikkeller IPA. (080620)

660ml bottle. Clear, dark golden body with a dense, but fast disappearing off-white head. Aroma is citrus and grapefruit. Flavor is sweet malt with a balanced, strong bitterness. Lots of hops, but very balanced.

baggio (319) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2008
Apperance: Golden red with a creamy lace that sticks to the glass. Aroma: Toffee, Exotic fruits, Citrus, Pine Flavor: Resin, Biscuits, Grapefruit, Caramel, Peach. Palete: Smooth but yet quite simple with a nice kick of hops at the end. Low carbonation. The aroma from this beer made me all happy inside. The taste is not up to pair with the aroma but still damn good. I like!

Slayer85 (1048) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 11, 2008
66cl bottle. A hazy amber beer with a big, creamy and persistent white head. The aroma is very hoppy, yet not as powerful as expected, but nice. There are notes of tropical fruits, citric fruits, grass and flowers. Some caramel underneath the hops. The flavour is very hoppy too, with all the notes expected after the aroma and a nice crispiness. Medium body (or maybe something more), average/lively carbonation, long dry finish with medium to heavy bitterness from the American hops. Very satisfying.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2008
Aroma has some bold hops, a decent malt following, colour of a tequila sunrise, a small off-white head. Taste begins with orangey hops, a pleasing malt come along too. Balanced, medium bodied, bitter and dry. Very nice example.

Rune (8042) - 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.
