Yup, another hop juggernaut from Mikkeller, and this one ain’t playing. Big citrus nose with pineapple and grapefruit jostling for position. Pretty pourer as well with a thick beige head that clings to the glass like dingles like on a sheepdog. While hop driven, ample malty sweetness makes a showing as well, finally settling down in the finish.

Zekada (75) - 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.

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

ciaranc (800) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 20, 2014
330ml bottle from Redmonds. Cloudy orange pour, foamy off-white head. Lovely nose - peach, passionfruit, resiny pine, caramel and butterscotch. Flavour is just as nice, lovely sweet summer fruits up front, strawberry notes, then comes the hops, bitter but nicely judged, some peach toward the finish. Decent body, the slightest hint of warming alcohol on the breath. Its very highly carbonated, which stops it becoming syrupy. Long bittersweet finish. Very nice indeed.

Citrus and tropical fruits in the aroma. This is fresh! Very long bitter finish, medium bodied, lively carbonation. Good.

Vells (652) - LATVIA - JUL 18, 2014
Feels very standard. Not like boring.. very drinkable. Intense citrus hops, peach, grapefruit, bit pine, balanced with decent malt background, caramel, bit grassy. Light sweetness with quite intense hop bitterness, but quite well balanced. Nothing too much, nothing too less.

ACD (621) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 13, 2014
33cl bottle. Hazy amber gold. Light pine, grass and citrus on the nose. Fairly juicy orange and pineapple up first on tasting, some spruce and pine. Doughy malt in there, some dusty stuff happening. Bitter grapefruit to finish, lingering herbs and spruce. Not much booze happening. Yep, pretty good.
