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)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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).
