Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 15, 2012
THOUGHTS: This sample might have been a little skunked. Either that or it was just the German hops overload. Even so slight skunk, but mostly German hops seemed to be the answer. Not really my cup of beer. There is a reason why there arenít a lot of German hopped IPAs. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, medium to dark, golden yellow with a large, white head that mostly diminished and left good lacing. The aroma had light bread, toasted malt, biscuit, slight caramel and hints of grain, hay, straw and cereal; moderate perfume, herbal and grassy hops; lighter lemon hops; slight earthy and musty yeast; slight honey; slight cardboard; and slight apricot. The initial flavor was moderately sweet, slightly acidic and slightly bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet, slightly acidic and moderately bitter with a fairly long duration. There was grassy hops, herbal hops, floral and perfume hops, slight honey, white bread, biscuit, doughy and musty yeast; straw and grain. The light to medium body was dry with soft but slightly tingly carbonation and a metallic and moderate to heavily acidic finish.

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.

nick76 (4253) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2012
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 (3521) - Lewisburg, 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. Itís a quaffable beer but My expectations are always higher with Mikkeller than quaffable.

RichardGretton (4276) - 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 (2315) - 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 (2282) - 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. Flavorís like nose, fairly dry, mostly bitter at first, then slight carbonic tang with suggestion of sweet. Body is soft and full with mild carbonation (donít know how thatís done!). Finish is like flavor and along with mouth feel is long and very drinkable. Bravo!

Huhzubendah (2637) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 4, 2012
A very hazy appearance with a big olí head and some lacing left in its wake. Aromas consist of hops, tart citrus, hay, yeast and funk. Wow...I wasnít expecting that. This is an unusual take on an IPA, no doubt. The funkiness, while tasting fine, throws my palate a curve ball it wasnít expecting. The pilsner and MŁnich 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.
