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.

Marsiblursi (3009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2007
(Bottle, thanks rickgordon and BillieMaria) Pours a bit hazy orange red. Hoppy, grapefruity and light spicy aroma with smaller notes of eucalyptus and some fruits, mostly apricot, lychee and tangerine. Also some tiny hints of grass, pine and a subtle maltiness with notes of caramel. Grapefruity flavour with some undertones of other citrus fruits and a floral soppy touch. The malty backbone is a tiny bit to thin. The finish leaves you with a spicy touch on the palate. Medium bitter and very clean. Rather dry. Light to medium body.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
(On tap) Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Fat aroma with strong citric notes. Quite full-bodied with lots of malt and citrus and a distinct bitterness. I’m afraid there’s a vague fustyness buried underneath - probably from the tap. 120507

fonefan (35088) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Draught @ Københavnske Øldage 2007 in Copenhagen. Hazy light amber color with a average fizzy off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy hoppy sweet, caramel, grapefruty. Initial flavor is moderate sweet and heavy bitter, finish flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice ;o))

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Light amber coloured beer with different color dimentions. Attractive off white head on top. Aroma is herbal green with some nice sneeks of dry caramel, cereals and malts. Clean hoppyness, lots of fresh herbs, bitter agrum and lemon zest. Taste is crisp, dry with some elegant roundings, and tastefull hoppy, major point here is the elegance and dry refreshing caracter of the beer. Afthertaste is hoppy but it leaves place for other sensations to which makes it great. One thing is for sure, the Mikkellers know how to use hops.

rane (897) - 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.
