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.

Bottle picked up at SL... Good head, dark orange in color. Aroma of floral/flower aroma. Taste is similar.... Floral notes, bitter on the back of the tounge. Nice hoppiness. Well balanced, drinkable IPA.

larsga (6372) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2010
Big beige head. Deep reddish amber body. Deep tropical fruit and mango and citrus aroma with gingery grassy notes. Wonderfully vivid and harmonic. Dry-sweetish gingery tropical fruit and resin taste with mango notes. Fullish body. Sharpish, faintly hot mouthfeel. Bitter-sweet wooden pine needle aftertaste with spicy chalky notes. Lovely. Wonderful sweet/bitter balance, fullness of body, and incredible hop aroma. (0.33l bottle, Høkeren, Copenhagen.)

daleharshman (951) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 4, 2010
11.2 ounce bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar ($6.19). Pours a murky dark orange approaching red. The two fingers of light beige head have good retention. Aroma of hops: flowers, grass, and soap, with somewhat lighter notes of citrus and pine. Flavor is fresh and earthy hops -- somewhat reminiscent of a wet hop or harvest IPA, though I’m guessing they did not get the super fresh American hops all the way to Denmark. Not overly bitter in taste and with a solid malt profile. Finish is smooth and lightly bitter. (175, 314)

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2010
Draught at Brasserie 4:20, Roma. Dark copper with a medium off-white head. A decent floral nose and pine. Flavour is caramel malt, fruit mix, hop resins and pine. Big hoppy bitterness that lingers in the finish. Nice stuff.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2010
330ml Bottle: Aroma of fresh hops, citrus, and pine. Poured dark amber/orange in color with a large, creamy, dense, tan/beige head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is heavily bitter and slightly sweet. Tastes of pine, hops, caramel malt, light citrus, and more fresh hops. Medium body. Slick, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Hop, pine, citrus, and caramel malt finish. Very well balanced.

Forsberg_dk (258) - DENMARK - MAY 27, 2010
66 cl bottle, pours amber with a minor head, nice hoppy aroma of grass and citrus with a hint of malt, taste is a bit sweet at first then a decent bitterness sets in . It is both light drinkable and very enjoyable at the same time, in short a perfect beer for the summer imo.

sloth (2569) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Medium statured offwhite head, retention is good as is the lace. Hazy copper hued brew. Nose is loaded with plenty of pine and citrus, mildly earthy too boot.Slight toasty malts in the background. Body is med/full, a touch carbonated, nice oily and resiny notes, juicey. Lotsa hop flavor, pine citrus, some bubblegum, pineapple, juicey tropical notes. Nice lingering bitter finish, fat and resiny. I dont understand why some guys from Denmark can brew a, to me, more cali style brew than some folks from the east coast of the USA? Go figure!? Props to ya Mikkeller!
