3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark copper, huge beige head (As a side note, does anybody chuckle to themselves when they say some thing about a huge head? I know itís juvenile, but I canít help myself.) Very grassy hop aroma. Light, clean and crisp. Some earthy malt. Tasty and very sessionable (even at 6.8%)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen shared with ClubGonzo and the rest of Bergen Tasting Crew. The Nugget is a hazy orange beer with a light creamy and bubbly off-white head. Aroma is light stingy, notes of pine, some strawberries and hints of thin caramel. Oily to watery mouthfeeling, average to soft carbonation and itís medium-bodied. Tastes quite bitter from the start. Notes of grass, perhaps some herbal tones?, ends mildly bitter with a lasting bitter aftertaste. Nice enough, but perhaps a bit blend.

Another very good beer from this series. Pours cloudy with a copper tint. Very good example of a quaility IPA, shame they retired the series.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
3rd of the MIkkeller single hop series that Iíve tried. Pours a cloudy, honey colored IPA with frothy head. Strongly hoppy aroma with spruce predominant with perhaps a very faint hint of banana. Very bitter throughout entire experience, lingering on the palate. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Good beer. Not a hope varietal I would normally enjoy alone, but can be appreciated for the added bitterness it can contribute to a good beer.
