Thx! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Drank side-by-side High & Low version. Hazy orange, little white head. Boozy nose, unlike with low version, fizzy floral, pine resin, oily, sticky caramel malts. Bitter ginger taste, herbal, boozy, caramel malts, boozy. Thick body. Rather too boozy. Okay.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good, white head; pale golden-ochre beer with some Grünstich. Faint hoppy nose, faint exotic fruit, peach & lychee. Spicy-hoppy taste, with a bit of rosewater, exotic fruit as lychee, passion fruit but also strawberry. Rather spritzy MF; well-bodied, very oily to viscous. Some alcoholwarming. Interesting compared to the Low (which, incidentally, I liked less than the first time around).

Bottle from the parents. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Lovely big tropical fruit aroma. The taste is fruity too with tropical notes and smooth caramel. Spicy bitter finish. Really creamy mouthfeel. Liked this a lot.

Very exciting imperial double ipa. Fantastich hoppy flavor, little bitterness and some sweetness to make this a perfect ipa. Great job, Mikkeler.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bionda opalescente, schiuma bianca fine è persistente. Cricca poco, grazie anche alla carbonatazione. Aroma debole, avverto fiori bianchi, mango ed un po’ di aghi di pino. In bocca ha un imbocco al caramello, poca roba inizialmente. Dolce, con carbonatazione media ed una tessitura roboante per una double IPA. Il retrogusto è il meglio, caldo ed al ribes, mango, agrumi vari e la mancata nota citrica. Se non fosse così monotematica sarebbe una birra molto più piacevole.

Bottle. Hazy golden, white head. Nice aroma of hop and caremel malt. Full taste of hops and malt, notes of banana, white grape, caramel and citra. Bit of an alcohol afterburn and a warm boozy feeling. Really strong and hoppy.

Bottle from Sonoma Cellar’s discount rack (Mikkeller IPA for $1, impossible to turn down). Pours a hazy orangey copper with an off-white head leaving streaky lace. Aroma has grapefruit and pineapple and caramel with pine. Taste is of tangy pine, heavy resin, grapefruit and sweet pineapple, with a solid caramel backbone. Medium bodied and sticky, with less alcohol than expected for 10%. Finishes more bitter than sweet. Enjoyable! 14.3

33cl bottle. The beer is fine parring with the food. On its own it has a strong rasin and sulfur taste. The hop burn is dissapointing. The beer is average but not bad to the bone. I enjoyed it with a spicy burger and it went great with it.
