3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lightly hazed mahogany into the glass, with a generous eggshell head that leaves thick suds lacing. The nose is of caramel and candied oranges. Flavors of caramel, pale malts, mixed citrus, light biscuits and piney bitters finish with a biscuity flour bitterness that lingers appropriately. The drinkability is great, complex and substantive on the palate, but active and light enough to be quaffable. A great single-hop IPA!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle on roof. Hazy dark amber pour with sediment - bit unappealing. Aroma is fruity hops with apple. Taste is surprisingly grape juice-like. Expected more lemony flavors, which are present but not dominant. Not that bitter but hint of citrus. Lasting sweet grape flavors. Surprisingly good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample. Poured a hazy amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate herbs, citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a friend.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Half hazy amber color. Thin ring of off-white head. Leaves a couple dots and bits of lace. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Medium-plus body. Up front, tastes significantly better than other single-hop Mikkellers I’ve tried, tastes like this one is a bit more fresh. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. Good lightly peppery, light grassy, light piney hop. Interesting malt profile... Light caramel, lightly spicy, some light vanilla... Solid, complex, interesting IPA. Good vanilla, kind of peppery aftertaste, light herbal grassiness. Lightly slick in the finish. Good, interesting stuff.

A little long in the tooth out here in Japan to get the big hop you would expect, but still very drinkable. A little too much caramel malt for me, but that may have balanced out the hops had the bottle been fresher. The bottle was still well in date, but the hops I can only assume have dropped out. I wouldn’t personally rush to get this or any of the other IPA single hop series again after having tried a few, but then I guess you need to get them fresh...
