Good bitter hops with a piney, earthy and floral taste. A little sweet from the malt too, as are the others in this series, but maybe the lower citrus content in the hops allows the sweetness to come through more in this one. As always, smooth and very well balanced.

This one is probably the harshest of the single hop IPAs from Mikkeller. Copper pour, aromas of earthy, pine hops and some floral hops as well. Flavor is sticky resinous pine and earthy hops. Bitter finish. Not as well balanced as the others but not a bad beer.

Bottle from The Grove, Huddersfield. Lumpy, dark amber. Thick, off white head. Aroma is heady sweet malt, black currant too. Quite fusty and sickly. Palate is sickly too. Long clacky finish. Not good.

Draught at Delirium Brussels. Deep, cloudy orange with a fine, high head. Hoppy nsoe, grass, peaches, orange, earth. A bit dirty. Sweet malt in the back. Very fruity flavor, orange, peach, earth, hay, bread. Sweet and jammy. Rich body. This hop is a bit bland, not my favorite.

0,33 bottle, Brewdog Online Store.
Poured opalescent amber with a medium creamy tan head. Moderated aroma of tropical fruits, bublegum, fig and grass, pine. Flavor opens with malts, after some slips the fruity yeasts arrive. The bitterness level is lower than expected with pine and grass.
