On tap, local beer bar eureka, CA. Beautiful dark golden almost green color, insane hoppy aroma of earth, ganja, fruity, and semi sweet tones. Sublimely hoppy juice flavor. Great lingering bitter aftertaste

330ml bottle from Archive. Pours a golden orange colour with a big rocky head of foam. Insane hop aroma fills the nose with sweet joy. Flavour is as good as the aroma with a long lingering aftertaste. A pleasure to drink.

Literarly, one of the best beer I’ve tasted! The taste is cytrus with banana flavours, it’s sweet, spicy and bitter at the same second! This IPA drives me mad!

20 cl tasting glass @ Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen, Denmark. Bright orange, amber pour. Short lived lacy head. Aroma of citrus and pine. My kid (18 yo but not a beer drinker) said "it smells like orange juice". I concur. The taste was a unique IPA experience. Great balance of ingredients. A pleasure from start to finish. Palate coated in an ocean of obvious west coast hoppiness. The lemony-citrus hop road has a big pine/resinous stripe down the middle. Just enough malt for the hops to hold onto. Reminds me of Green Flash West Coast IPA but with a bit more complexity.

This is really stellar. Smells great, tons of hops throughout but never overly dominated by bitterness. Tastes strong but not alcohol-flavored. Great.

Part of a six IPA tasting session. Listed as Double Imperial Pale Ale.
No freshness date, but I know this was released in February 2012.
Poured from a 330 mL bottle into a snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden with a 1/2 finger white head.
S: Lots of bright citrus, marmalade, and floral hops. Great aroma.
T: Taste follows the aroma pretty well, with a sweet malt backbone balancing out a high level of bitterness.
M: Crisp, light bodied, and well carbonated.
O: Definitely the best of the tasting. Balance is key here, as with the Hopzilla. Too bad it may only be a one time release, and since it is a single 11.2 oz bottle, it certainly is overpriced like most of Mikkeller’s beers.

Aroma of pine, citrus, grass. Pale to golden colour (lovely). Hazy. Frothy head, approx 2 cm. Bone dry and bitter. Long, long after taste, multi layered. Final taste far back and on both sides of tongue. Exceptional beer.

Zitat von meinem Kumpel Bommel "Also das ist ......das ist jetzt echt mein Lieblingsbier". Klar, warum. Der Name ist Programm. Eins vorweg, der Nachtrunk ist eine der intensivsten Erfahrungen die man beim Biertrinken machen kann. Mindblowing & Outstanding!!!!! Der Trunk kokettiert häufig mit einer süßlichen Einfältigkeit, die dann aber schnellstens wieder von einer säuerlich hopfigen Dampfwalze geerdet wird. Das alles ist LANG,HEFTIG und voller extremsten Citrus/Hopfenattacken!!!! BIG!!!! 0,33l Flasche für ca.6 Euo aus den MIKKELLER BOTTLE SHOP Kopenhagen.

Great beer. Heard was huge and lingering. The aroma is powerful with Strong hints of orange and hops. The taste is fruity, hoppy , with a hint of coconut, and a bitter finish that stay with you.
