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.

rane (878) - Nibe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2007
Amber colour with medium long lasting whitish brown head. Aroma with citrus notes. Taste typical IPA with lots of hops. Long and bitter aftertaste. I like the hops a lot but a little more complexity would be fine. So hoppy that I guess it will go fine in a blind tasting of IIPAs.

Christian (11119) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2007
Slightly cloudy copper beer with a small white head. Lots of citrus hops, some peach caramel and a hint of tobacco. The flavour has a tiny hint of caramel sweetness, and then comes the hop explosion. Lots of grapefruit, some peach and a long lasting grapefruit aftertaste. More uncompromising hoppiness than in Stateside.

anders37 (16691) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Malty hoppy spicy citrus aroma. Sweet malty with a very hoppy flavor with some hints of citrus. Malty hoppy citrus finish with a long bitter aftertaste.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2007
66 cl. Tasted several times. Amber clear colour with a great stable white head. Wonderful hoppy aroma, the Simcoe hops are very resenteable and goes very well with the rest of the hops, theres also notes of caramel. Wauw what a great and exellent tasty flavour of hops, what can I say hops hops and more hops, this one ends up little sweet malty, notes of caramel and little alcohol on the tongue. the finish is very bitter and light dry. This one is a very powerfull IPA, what a great taste in that bottle.

beeranarchist (210) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Orange, hazy with white head that disappears rather quickly. The hoppy aroma has hints of pine, citrus and a little bit of caramel. I just love the flavour, you can taste hops about 0.1 second before you drink it! Medium bodied, full flavored. Bitter, but nice balance. The haziness is the only thing I don’t love about this beer.

Amber color with a nice, white head. Lots of hops, grass and citrus tones. Lots of hops and fruity taste. Medium body with a very long, bitter afterstaste.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 30, 2007
Bottle @ DLD: Poured a clear copper with a white head. Aroma, citrus and grassy hops, some orange and pineapple. Flavor, a bit bready, some yeasty notes, and citrus hops, nice bit of bitterness. Quite good.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2007
Bottled. Clear amber colour. Creamy head. Huge hop aroma with grassy, grapefruity, earthy backbone. Fresh hops it seems-grapey flavour-dominate over a subtle caramelly sweetness, that would have been properly sensed if not for the huge amount of hops. Now, I forgot what hops were used, but it seems that loads of (semi)high alpha hops were used for bitterness. The bitterness was a bit edgy, and maybe too much for some. Medium bodied. This is a beer with profile and I like it as such. After is immensely dry. Wonderful beer!

[Sampled with Thomas in Söderåsen, Skåne, Sweden.]
Hazy dark brown look with notes of grapes and grassy hops. Very freshhoppy in the taste, pines, sweetmalty and citrusy. Must taste it again and I’m sure it will get better notes.

Thanks to Bager for this beer!! A really solid ipa that I enjoyed a lot. Lots of hops in the nose with some earthy undertones coming through. The taste is very earthy...as it has been with most of the foreign ipas I have sampled...but it was still tasty! Lots of bitter hops in the taste as well. Alcohol is not really present. Overall a really solid ipa that I wish I had easier access to. Thanks Bager!!
