English: At Mikkeller we believe that it is among the inventive amateurs that the wildest beers are being brewed and it is precisely those brewers that we like to work with. That is why we have a competition each year to test who can brew the most intense hop bomb. This year, Søren Davids won that competition.
This beer is brewed as a collaboration between Søren Davids and Mikkeller.

Bottled, 50cl. Amber colored beer with a small-ish off-white head. Lots of hops in the aroma and the taste. The taste is also filled with grapefruit, lemon. The finish is dry and bitter, in a very pleasant way as well as the body.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is loads of lovely piney fruity floral hops. And I mean loads. Lemon peel, orange, citrus and grapefruit dominate. Hits you from across the room. Even holds up after drinking. Flavour is subtle and smooth bitterness, not very bitter imho, butter very deep and long lasting. Medium dry, very fresh, again loads of mostly fruity and piney hops. Light sweet and very fitting malt note. Quite light and highly drinkable, yet full with flavour. Awesome. This.on.draft.everywhere.please.

Leighton (18711) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle at the East Croydon Beer Tasting. Pours cloudy golden with a sturdy, white head. Has a clean hop aroma, citrus, grass, a bit of toast. Medium sweet flavor, bit more toast, some cirus rind, resinous pine, juicy. Medium in body with average carbonation. Slight warming finish with juicy hops, toasty malts and sticky, oily pine. A very solid drinker.

gyllenbock (7999) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2011
Bottle. Hazy orange/amber with a large white head. Really a lot of hops in both the aroma and taste. Also resin, pine, grape. Very drinkable, and not as bitter as expected, actually quite balanced in some way.

Vaiz (4334) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle at home. Hazy orange pour, thick foamy white head that leaves loads of lacing. Aroma is full of hops, pine, floral, fruity and very lovely. The flavor is what you would expect from a very hoppy beer. Full of bitter pine, floral richness and a fruity sweet touch. Great balance. Very nice brew.

sunevdj (3965) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2011
On tap @ Mikkeller Ølbar. Pours a vary hazy amber with a small off-white head. Smells of hops and more hops. Bitter with lots of fruity hops aromas. Aromas of grapes and apples with earthy hints and a bit of yeast. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Hoppy finish.

It’s an unclear, warm golden beer with a creamy and lasting head. The nose is met by a basket full of exotic fruits and citrus. The moderately sweet flavour has a very dry mouth-feel, and notes from the entire fruit basket followed by the citrus fruits – to put it short: It’s a lovely hop-juice. The finish is dry and slightly bitter.

Mer humle än såhär hittar man nog inte i många öl. Men ölen är förvånansvärt fruktig och balanserad och beskan är inte för påträngande utan lite sådär lagom. Slutsats: märklig men god.
