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.

Not what I was expecting. An okay pale ale, but nothing about this really stands out for me. The hops are pungent enough. It just lacks the crisp finish I’d want, not to mention the burst of flavor on the tongue or lasting hoppiness I’d prefer in an IPA. The flavor is lasting, but only as bitterness.

Grzesiek79 (3855) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 11, 2016
330ml bottle. Piana spora skrzepowata do tego trwala. Kolor jak amber Ale, metne, szaro pomaranczowe. Piekny aromat suszonych polnych kwiatow. W smaku grejfruty, fermentujace pomarancze, papaja, ogolnie sporo cytrusow, nieco karmelowej slodyczy, ale generalnie warstwa chmielowa przytlacza wszystko. Piwo bardzo tresciwe i wyraziste.

PabloZab (1032) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Butelka 330ml (12.05.2017). Piwo delikatnie zmętnione o ciemno bursztynowej barwie. Piana lekko żółtawa, jest obfita, dość trwałą i wyraźnie oblepia ścianki szkła. Aromat słodkawy z nutami żywicy, owoców tropikalnych i wyraźnymi nutami karmelu, które bardzo fajnie współgrają z nutami chmielowymi. Goryczka średnia minus o charakterze żywiczno-ziołowym z lekkim akcentem alkoholu, krótka w czasie i praktycznie niezalegająca. Po drugiej stronie wyraźna, słodkawa kontra karmelowo-tropikalna. Piwo jest dość pijalne jak na swój woltaż choć ciało zostało wyraźnie zaznaczone. Całkiem niezła IPA, bardziej w stylu east, ale też nie rzuca na kolana.

superspak (4394) - Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2016
16 ounce can into tulip glass, best before 11/3/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, lemon/orange peel, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, lemon/orange rind, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and minimal lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness, that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderate sticky/resinous/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. This still tasted really fresh to me for being 6 months old, assuming that the dating is one year out. A very enjoyable offering.
