33 cl bottle, BBE 24.11.2017
Aroma is hoppy with lots of exotic fruits, especially mango. Also hints of gooseberry bush. Creamy palate. Flavour is rather hoppy with exotic fruits, mango and resin. Usually I don’t like the beers over 120 IBU but this was nice.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with thick off white head. Aroma of floral hops. Taste of muted hops. Has a aged hopped taste to it. Not fresh but in the fresh section at Ale Yeah in Decatur. Oh well. Decent but no " Hop Burn"....if this is fresh this is a sad attempt at a IIPA. Bland and boring.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
11.2 oz bottle with a label showing hops in a fry pan. Foggy orange with a surprisingly aggressive meringue head. Copious lace. Crazy, big cat smell up front, hints of ripe cheese, some toffee and rotting peach. Full bodied hop milkshake with fuzzy carb. Taste is grapefruit peel, lemon zest and caramel. Increasingly bitter and pithy stopping short of a hop clench but certainly plenty dank.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small white head with short retention, nice doily like lace, sticky. Lightly hazy, light copper hued brew. Juicy hop nose, citrus, tangerine and light pine. Body is med/full with a soft carbonation, nicely oily and a tad resiny. Grapefruit overload, yes! Some cutey pie sweet malts trying to make a showing, resiny and fruity, lil melony and juicy. nice. Lightly sweet and fruity hop finish with a swell bite. ABV is a lil stinker. I do so enjoy Mikkellers hoppy concoctions. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.
