Nice citrus peel like variety of hops. First in series I just got on sale at Schneiderís. Cloudy brown orange with decent head and lacing. Bitter finish. Good barley crispness, very grainy feel. Nice.

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma. Tomada en mayo de 2013. Sabor a fruta, ligeramente dulce, agradable y aroma floral destacado. Amargo final apreciable y que perdura durante un buen rato. Cuerpo medio con 6.8 vol. Muy buena, dentro de la serie de las mejores, despuťs de tantas y tan buenas ya sobra decir que es una cerveza para repetir sin duda.

330ml bottle from Ninaís. Pours a hazy copper gold, thick off-white head. High carbonation keeps it there. Aromas of resin, pine and pollen. Taste has a decent bitterness, light caramel coming through. Bitter finish, maybe a tad cloying.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Tap sample.Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate smooth bittersweet flavor with a moderate bitterswwet finish of medium duration. This a good brew.

Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. No idea which Mikkeller Bravo this is... On the menu at the taproom, itís labeled 6.8%, but on the Ei8ht Ball website, itís listed as 6.9%. They probably donít know either. Will just put my rate on the one with more entries. The two beers are so similar they may as well be merged anyway. Whichever one it is, itís probably going to be really old, too.... Here we go.... Mildly hazy orange amber color. Little off-white head. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lighter, lightly soft carbonation. Lightly slick. Caramel malty, some light mustiness, thought not as malty and oversweet as I expected. Some lightly bruised grapefruit citrus, earthy hop flavors, lightly spicy. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Not that bad, actually. Definitely not worth the price, though.

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2014
Tap at BD Shepherds Bush. Pours hazy orange with a creamy white head. Nose is balanced tropical notes with heavy focus on lychee and passionfruit. Plenty grassy but everything seems a little subdued like I have found with this hop series. Taste has plenty of orange zest, focus on lychee and sweet tropical numbers. Very easy drinking with no real dose of bitterness to follow. A bit boring

zacgillbanks (1841) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A hazy dark amber beer that has rich citrus fruity flavours, pine notes and orange marmalade and peppery notes on the finish.

cfrancis (2153) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours dirty brown with a small off white top. Aroma is pine and an almost oak pine hops. Taste is sweet from the malt and resinous from the hops. Woody, oak and pine hop bitterness but well balanced.

fiammanghilla (421) - Genova, ITALY - JAN 23, 2014
Bottiglia 33cl @ giangaspero frutta e verdura. Ambrata chiara con schiuma fine e persistente. buon corpo, aroma resinoso, forse un filo stucchevole alla lunga.
