3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark orange with a big white cap for a head. Nose is superb. Lots of tropical notes - pineapple, coconut, apricot. Almost a sherbert like sweetness behind it all. Quite piney as well. Taste isn’t as forward. A very creamy mouthfeel but covers up a lot of what’s there. Light pineapple and orange zest with soft coconut and more sweetness to finish. The nose is superb but the taste lets it down a touch. A quality brew still

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2012 Flaska från Ölkompaniet Aalborg. En av de misnt spännande i deras single hop IPA serie. För lite fruktighet, och inte speciellt mkt beska.God men inte mer. (Fast man har ju större krav på Mikkeller än på de flesta andra nordiska bryggare)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks Kimi!). Hazy ambery pale brown colour, mediumsized fluffy off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is mild grassy and some herbal notes with some mild maltyness. Flavour is floral, grassy and herbal with some sweet maltyness. Quite an interesting hop as for the aroma. As for the flavour it’s a good hop for base bitterness.

On tap at blue monk. Pours tannish amber with off white head. Nose of caramel, flowers, and light citrus. Taste is much the same with strong cutting bitterness. Ok, but i was wishing to taste mikkeller ten instead.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Cask, Pimlico - 10/08/12.
Pours a russet brown to dirty orange in colour with a good half finger of dirty off-white head.
Aroma is woody and nutty with a fainter hop profile - a little citrus nose.
Burnt toffee/caramel flavour - citrus and pine at the rear, not so prevelant - a little bready.
Medium mouthfeel with a dry finish.
Not my favourite from the series!

Bottle from Khioshk in Copenhagen. It poured a hazy orange-brown liquid with a dirty white head. Mild smell with a light grassy aroma and some fruits. Mild hoppy taste with some grass and some fruits. A bit to mild, needs a partner.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly cloudy very dark orange with about a half finger of white head. Aroma of grassy citrus and some floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Pine and citrus with grapefruit. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. I would drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours a rustic dark murky orange/brown with a thick bubbly off-white head. Aroma of grass, sprite soda, wet tree bark, wood, some mild fresh resinous notes. Flavour of dirty grass, wet straw, stale in an earthy way. Like being in a barn with a damaged roof after a huge rain storm - in a glass. Acetone-like aftertaste. Interesting.
