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.

Gorgeous tasty IPA with perfect aroma, reminder of red fruits from the tropics. Bitternes is the best.not great price but you pay for what you get, so great value.

Gold aside, this lovely slightly cloudy amber-coloured beer with a finger of dense tan head is exceptionally good looking. And that head isn’t going anywhere. The green steps up with a really nice hoppy nose of resin and pine. The taste too is dominated by, not overwhelmed, by hops. Bitterness, perfume, a little resin, supported by a malt back that adds a little caramel sweetness. The aftertaste is bitter hops, and a little perfume. (I’m starting to wonder if it’s me with all this bitter aftertaste. That’s three in a row, all on different days.) I like it, and my drinking buddies will attest that I’m getting tired of all the damn IPA’s out there on the market. Good on ya’ Mikkeller.

Listigovers (330) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Strong aroma of pineapple and apricot. Cloudy brown with a tan head. Malt up front which drops into a heavy bitter aftertaste with a lot going on, nice and a bit weird!

Freaky_tiki (585) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
Pours a deep woods brown with a one inch sticky foam cap. Name’s a little on the deceptive side: it’s not so much a green gold ipa (I.e. hop juice) as it is brown gold (ie deep malt backbone that pushes the hops a bit to the side). It’s a good brew, that does things i like, but I was expecting more than this. Recommended but overrated on this site.

Oct. 21, 2014. Bottle from LCBO. Medium warm brown colour with off-white head. Much darker than anticipated based on the style. Lovely foamy head. Biscuit, straw, lemon flavours and aromas, with a nice maltly backbone to offset the bitterness. I quite enjoyed this one.

Bendrixian (1140) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
330ml lcbo purchase. Pours a hazy murky brownish/light red colour. I get the hops and the resinous styled of this brew but there is almost this almost cucumber note that I can’t quite place. On the palate it find it a slightly new take on the style as it has a certain medicinal flavour or something. Strange brew.

Bosskie (416) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2014
Fruity subtle smell. Hoppy, bitter. More subtle than usual Mikkellers. Dry astringent, leather, lots of resin.
