# 3164 ersma: mit ingwer und mistel. stellt sich die frage, ob der mikkel die misteln auch mit der goldsichel geschnitten hat, damit sie ihre magische wirkung behalten. orange-bernsteinfarben, sehr trübe mit vielen schwebeteilchen. recht viel stabiler schaum. der geruch ist fruchtig, zitrus, beeren, etwas harzig. der antrunk ist fruchtig, auch hier zitrus, mango und beeren, dazu die leichte schärfe des ingwers. geschmacklich ist der ingwer aber gut hinter den hopfenaromen versteckt. auch hier leicht harzige noten. zur mitte kommt dann auch etwas ingwergeschnack sowie leicht süße aromen hinzu. der abgang ist hopfenbetont, bitter. dazu eine grundlage aus harzigen aromen und etwas ingwer. auch beeren sind nach wie vor dabei. die flasche zeigt eine zeichnung von leutchen, die rentiere mit mistelzweigen füttern. mhd: zwei jahre. fazit: schönes ipa, dem etwas mehr ingwer gut getan hätte. zu den misteln kann ich nichts sagen. wie schmecken die? probierenswert. 12,11,11,11,8,11 - 10,95 - 12/1

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Draft at Bridge-STL. Reddish tinge. Very light body, at least compared to expectation. Nice hoppy, tree-like aroma and flavors. Never would’ve thought ginger, but that just proves how "good" my palate really is. Enjoyable, light holiday beer. (#5891, 12/17/2014)

radagast83 (5053) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a golden blonde color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was nice light pine, with some ginger heat to it. Flavor was some pine hop character. Ginger. Nice.

solidfunk (4477) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Very nicely done. This comes together very well. Ginger is well tempered, just a bite. Pine is nice too. Blonde with good head and lacing. Bitter finish. Good stuff. Tap at Black Squirrel.

Beer4000 (4607) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa. Almost clear golden body with a fine, creamy white head. Good and strong aroma of citric fruit, oranges, grapefruit, fresh spruces, flowers and some caramel. Flavor is sweet malt, moderate caramel, lots of citric fruit as found in aroma, a hint of ginger and good bitterness with a hint of spruces. Fine body and bitter, tasty aftertaste. Never imaged I would find an IPA that gave some Christmas spirit, but this actually gives me some of it. Christmas or not, a well-made tasty and slightly original IPA.

Kosmokrator (516) - ITALY - DEC 13, 2014
Alla spina. Nebuloso color arancio con solido cappello di schiuma bianca. Agrumata, luppolata e dolciastra al naso con sentori di canditi e spezie; gusto ben bilanciato tra dolce e amaro con note pungenti e agrumate molto buone; finale equilibrato, corpo medio, effervescenza gentile.

The aroma is full of flowers, citrus hops, ginger and pine needles, there is also details of cascade hops. The color is golden. A really nice color. The taste is bitter thanks to the amazing hops and pine needles. It feels very light on the tongue. The finish is long and bitter. A really nice beer.

Great IPA, with lots of taste. Ginger in the aroma more than in the taste. The pine is hardly noticeable. Medium carbonated, alcohol well hidden. Another fine examble of the brilliance of Mikkeller.
