11.2 bottle that was bought, dropped, cooled & drank w/ in an hour, so... cloudy w/ lots of floating yeast, pale, w/ minimal white head. Smells like sweet wet hops. Taste almost medicinal. It’s bitter, but I poured too much yeast, so its muddled. Alcohol is muted. Pricey.

Madsen1635 (246) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden pour with white head. Aroma is sweet and strong with malt and citrus. Full balanced taste with almost no indication of the high ABV.

dambor (34) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2014
Appearance: no indication (consumed in a dark place). Aroma: this is a hop bomb with a lot of pine and some peach. Taste: wow, never had a beer like this before. The name "hop burns" indeed well describes this beer; there is so much hops that the beer appears oily and you have the feeling that tons of hops are being absorbed by your tongue. A super long and super pleasant bitter finish. A big beer! NOthing for the faint of heart!

elbernays (471) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 17, 2014
330ml bottle at home. Pours murky yellow with lasting white head. Unusually light colouring for a DIPA. Spruce, peach, citrus, slightly medicinal nose. Chewy caramel flavour, warming finish with the bitter lift. Lasting peach sweet aftertaste. ABV managed extremely well. A bit of carbonation, full body. Really good.

Lodgewick (16) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
0,3 litres bottle. Hazy orange, almoust fantalike colour. Thin white head. Tropical fruit, some alcohol and grapefruit in aroma. Pretty lame and non hoppy aroma for dipa. Fruity taste with grapefruit and pine. Over mefium palate. Good beer, mediocre dipa. I expected a lot more from a combination of Mikkeller, dipa and 10% alco.

Zekada (114) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Web Shop. Smell is very hoppy with some subtle notes of hay. Pours dark hazy orange with a medium white head. Taste of hops and citrus and slightly bitter aftertaste. The palate is good in IPA measures. Overall a decent beer from the Danish giants.

drpimento (2221) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2014
This is another high-strength high hop MikKeller IPA that seems to follow a pattern. The pattern is a lot of high flavor hop very Resiny and has a lot of Caramell style malt. Body is good the bitterness of the Hops don't overpower but very close. No one of my favorite IPAs but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
