4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours golden with a puffy white head that settles to a covering, good amount of lacing the way down. Aroma is fresh grapefruit, citrus pith, grassy. Taste is an explosion of grapefruit juice, with an extremely long pithy bitter finish that keeps on coming. Super clean on the palate. Excellent IPA, one of the best

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 500ml can with BBD of 20/5/17. Hop forward (grapefruit/orange citrus, pine needles) and bitter with a decent biscuity malt foundation and easy drinkability (beware the ABV). It pours translucent deep amber with a large dense off-white head that settles slowly to a stable crown. Another nice one from Mikkeller who deserve their esteemed reputation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tapped out a deep amber brown. 21ºSRM.
Nose has nice pineapple ripeness with a sweet estery aroma. There are bright citrus aromas of lemon zest and grapefruit peel. There are fresh orange scents as well. Piney aromas are also apparent. There is a clean sweet aroma of grain as well.
Mouthfeel is soapy and almost heavy. Carbonation is pronounced and well-matched against the malty body bearing nutty flavors of pecans, raw almonds, and buttery macadamia. The sweet malty flavors suggest browned wheat toast, roasted cracked barley and even honeyed puffed cereal. There are some nice rich toffee flavors as well.
The finish is medium length starting with an aggressive hyssop bitter that slides slowly into a more herbaceous palate suggesting raw spinach and then a slightly floral-citrus aftertaste.
Overall a very full-bodied and well executed ale with a nod to all the hop heads out there. Plenty of aroma and bitter hops to explore in this one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours haze, light brown color, with foamy stable white head. Aroma: prevails hop aroma of american hops, with character of tropical fruits like melon, pineapple, mango, papaya etc. and pine, with hint of malty aroma in the background.
Flavor have very strong hop note, with character of tropical fruits, citrus and pine. Malt flavor, with character of biscuit, is in second plan, but still as main pillar of a backbone. Hop bitterness is high, also hop flavor, and both are lingering long in aftertaste. finish is slightly dry. Body is medium light, texture is smooth, carbonation is medium.
Perfect European, or better - Belgian example of American IPA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid but unexciting - a bit two dimensional for me - not vibrant or piercing as I like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a hazy amber colour with a fizzy off white head. Aroma of mango, pineapple, some orange, pine and slight biscuit. Taste of mango, grapefruit, some orange, resin, a little biscuit, subtle caramel and slight wood. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A light, dry, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. A well balanced IPA with a soft resinous bitterness and biscuity malts. Overall though, nice but only average compared to other beers of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tolles IPA. Meiner Frau hat es partout nicht geschmeckt, ich fand es gut.
Goldgelb im Glas, viel Sediment. Leicht Krone.
Geschmacklich stark tropisch, leicht Zitrus. Stark malzig, insgesamt sehr ausgewogen. Echt lecker.
Lang und ölig im Abgang, über 10 Grad noch mehr Ausdruck.
Insgesamt ein super IPA!
