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.

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 (2209) - 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 (1168) - 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 (836) - 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 (!).

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Sampled from the Yespr collection, shared at Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a hazy orange amber amber brew with a thick and slow dissolving off-white head that has some good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, citrusy and pine hops and a touch of light fruit. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, with some flavors of caramel malt, dry fruits and touch of grapefruit zest. Finish is mildly bitter with a more citrus hops than malt aftertaste.

JK (4433) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Thanks to Yespr. A great fresh hop aroma. The beer seems very fresh overall, an accomplishment considering where it came from. Full bodied malt and hop flavor, both flavors are intense and balance each other. Excellent, thick, sweet and heavy palate.

[Bottle, thanks yespr for apparently leaving this behind for the Mpls crew to try after RBSG] Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is very fruity and hoppy--it reminded me of the Stateside but a little toned down. Quite sweet, malty, a little hoppy but not out of control. Medium mouthfeel. Slightly better than Stateside, despite the aroma being a small step down.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2007
this bottle has some age and may be why the aroma is lacking a bit. Never-the-less, nice hippy aroma without much else. The body is quite good and the flavours ends up being a bit plain with some bittering hops in the forefront and not much for real hop flavour. Has an uninteresting malt profile. Not bad by any stretch of the imagineation but not really very exciting.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Thanks to Yesper for sharing. Pours a fiery reddish orangish brown. Very perfumy flloral hoppiness and a good dose of citrus. Holy citrus hops. A nearby friend said "I believe they have defined IPA" and that is very true. Killer citrusy finish. Wow is this good!

22. Thanks, Maria! Good stuff. Pours glowing orange-amber under the light, more of a deep burnished copper when it’s set to the side. Big thick rocky white head. Nice floral, slightly grassy nose--understated by most beer geeks’ reckoning to be sure, but still very much in the American style. Medium body, nicely balanced tingly carb. Caramel and dry leaves and a bit of pine on the mid-palate, with a nice tingly herbal cling to the finish. This is a pleasure to drink.
