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.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, - MAY 20, 2011
Pours a deep amber with classic mikkeller creamy white thick head. The nose is bloody lovely, just up my street, really aromatic without being too overpowering. Lovely complex smells, you just keep getting a whiff of something else each time you sniff, lovely sweet melon, grapefruit, lemon zest, a nice floral note, some light resin, bang on. The palate is full and smooth, spot on conditioining & great flavours. Tons of sweet malty biscuit with real zesty lemon & grapefruit coming through on the juicy bitter finish. Great beer, this ones all about that sublime nose for me.

Christpuncher (1951) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2015
An awesome ipa. Really hoppy, piney and hoppy. Large can pour at home. Sort of mango flavored. Poured out of a can at home.

Echon (39) - DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle. Hazy red colour with a big frothy off-white head. Great aroma with lots of hops and citrus. Medium sweet taste with heavy bitterness. Fruit notes. Medium body with lively carbonation and a very long and very bitter finish. A great IPA, but the bitterness ruins the balance to a minor degree.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball from notes. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice toasted malt and caramel base, lemon and grapefruit citrus on the nose, resiny hops, more grapefruit citrus on the flavor, moderate bitterness, better than many that come over, seems fresher.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2015
33cl (Bottle No. 720688, "Imported Original", one of only three selected Mikkeller recipes as core range in Oetker-Braufactum’s curated & luxury-cooled portfolio, tagged and subtitled to cross the upper market segment distinction line). Potent caramel and fruitpeel-driven aroma: maracuya meets earthier quince, apricot and sweeter pineapple. Vaguely cheesy, a quark edge, the faintest whiff of heavier-lifting abv. Tastes intensely resinous, blank bark and quince peel coated in both exotic fruit derived and more sirupy caramels. Overall a typically in-your-face, tasty Mikkeller IPA, hop-engineered on the highest level, but without that extra touch to make it a memorable drinking experience or add some extra-testtube character. - Add to that the €3,99 Braufactum cooler ransom in Germany and you have yourself a gentrified one-off at 150-200% the price of some of the better imported US IPAs. May Stone Berlin, Brooklyn Sweden, Urban Chestnut Franconia et al. soon set us free...

Majek (495) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUL 2, 2015
Hazy, amber colour with big and stable head. Some lacing. Medium strong aroma of piney, ripe exotic fruits and caramel background. Surprisingly only minimal note of citrus notes. Taste is over medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Short bitter-sweet finish. Soft carbonation. Over medium body. Tasty IPA with lots of sweetness and not too much hoppiness. Could be more bitter.

likeatrainwreck (155) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Very dark amber cloudy beer with a white head that laces all the way to bottom... aromas of dank pine. Massive bitter tropical and citrus flavours, caramel malt backbone, big bitter finish. Big flavours, but maybe a touch too bitter for me.
