dfearnley (889) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
11.2 fl oz bottle to flute Apricot, tropical fruit, and hoppy aroma. Translucent amber with a billowing off white head. It's bitter, a little sour with tropical fruit and caramel notes. Mouthfeel is tongue coating and oily.

The aroma is hoppy with grassy, herbal, and pine like hops. There is also sweet malt and dirty metal. The appearance is deep gold with slight amber hue and a foamy head. Taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a really good beer that is hurt by the metallic aroma.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from perfect pour. Pours golden with a quarter inch of white foam. Citrus and bread notes on the nose. Theres some pine notes that come through on the finish with a slight hint of bitterness. Notes of citrus on the tongue. It’s a quaffable beer but My expectations are always higher with Mikkeller than quaffable.

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle. Vibrant cloudy golden beer with a strong frothy head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is very strongly hopped and bitter with a nice grassy tinge. Overall a nice well hopped and bitter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

suprchunk (2103) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Creamy white head atop a hazy golden/yellow liquid base. Staying power on the head and plenty of lacing. Smells citrusy with a biscuity malt aroma. Nice up front hop flavor with notes of lemon. Some malt character. Bitter and rounded. Nice beer.

drpimento (2186) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Pretty good beer as usual from Mikkeller. Poured at a good temperature with a nice, foamy, thick, off-white head that lasts a while and some lace. Color is a clear amber with dozens of active bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, caramel, grass, resin. Flavor’s like nose, fairly dry, mostly bitter at first, then slight carbonic tang with suggestion of sweet. Body is soft and full with mild carbonation (don’t know how that’s done!). Finish is like flavor and along with mouth feel is long and very drinkable. Bravo!

Huhzubendah (2431) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2012
A very hazy appearance with a big ol’ head and some lacing left in its wake. Aromas consist of hops, tart citrus, hay, yeast and funk. Wow...I wasn’t expecting that. This is an unusual take on an IPA, no doubt. The funkiness, while tasting fine, throws my palate a curve ball it wasn’t expecting. The pilsner and Münich malts create a unique version of IPA, the likes of which I have not tasted. Decent feel and carbonation. An interesting beer, though I prefer a straight up IPA without the unorthodox elements.

sulawang (602) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
pours cloudy orange/light brown with a thick foamy head and lots of active CO2 streams. A pretty muted nose, just a bit of malt and hops. Silky CO2 mouthfeel, sweetness (6/10) up front quickly transitions to sharp dry hoppy bitterness (8/10), light toffee, red apple, cinnamon, and ends smoothly with a soft lingering bitter finish on the tongue and throat. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, good carry, good drinkability. Quite smooth, but not particularly refreshing or exciting.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
[4442-20120603] 11.2floz bottle. Hoppy mango fruit aroma. Hazy, light brown orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head and some light lacing. Toasted fruit rind hops flavour has a bitter aftertaste. Medium body is a little bitter. Good, interesting to try. (7/3/7/4/15) 3.6

Quite nice. Bottle via trade with Savvy1982, cellared approximately 9 months
