Hermod (2810) - Vantaa, - NOV 10, 2012
33cl bottle, bbe 03/14. Batch #180941. Clear golden, frothy, white ead. Tropical fruity, piney aroma, perfume as well. Flavor has caramel, pine and bitter hops, alcohol and spicy notes. Bitter and dry finish. Aroma promised much more.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
Pour’s all foam and frustration. Two thirds of head with a little beer underneath. Hazy, dull amber with a bad case of the floaties. Head does eventually subside. after mucking up the glass well. Resinous, sweet, citrus dowsed nose. Doughy and thick like caramelised orange, banoffee pie, and toffee’d apple. Straightforward, citrus and tropical fruit dominated palate. Light burn on the finish. Hops are flooded by the esters. Ginger has a sideline role. Yeasty, muddled malt mid-palate. Quite lean in body, almost watery in approach. Carbonation is soft given the heady explosion on the pour. Vinous more than beer like. Refreshing but forgettable to be blatantly honest. Nothing strikingly unique here. Cool label!! (33cL, BB 06/03/14, The Liquor Barn, Jandakot)

tomekk1978 (275) - POLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Barwa: złocista, lekko zmętniona - prawdopodobnie przez drobinki chmielu lub dodatków. Piana biała, obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: bardziej żywiczny niż owocowy, z lekką nutą słodową i (być może) imbirową oraz alkoholową na końcu. Zbalansowany, nie atakujący. Smak: zdecydowana słodycz z chmielową kontrą (goryczka średnia, o dziwo raczej cytrusowa - mandarynki?) i akcentem alkoholowym pod koniec. Następny Mikkeller odpowiada na pytanie czy można coś jeszcze wykrzesać z niezwykle popularnego ostatnio stylu, jakim jest India Pale Ale. Okazuje się, że można. Piwo, w którym akcenty owocowe zdają się być przykryte leśnymi oraz żywicznymi. Użyte do produkcji igły sosnowe są wyczuwalne, jednak imbir już nie bardzo. Aromat jest przyjemny i nie męczy, jak to miało miejsce w Stateside IPA. Podobnie jest ze smakiem, który choć z większa dawką alkoholu okazuje się być bardziej przystępny. Nie zawiodłem się dotąd na żadnym piwie z Mikkellera, kilka było jedynie mniej wyrazistych. To spokojnie mogę polecić do subiektywnej oceny...

glennmastrange (2145) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of roasted, caramel, and orange. light dough and soap for the yeast, with pine, ginger, coriander and date. Head is average size, frothy, slightly off-white with fine yet dense lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy medium amber. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly dry finish. Sweeter than your usual IPA, but that only makes it easier drinking.

Citrus hops, a hint of ginger (not as much as I expected) over caramel malt flavors, fading into pine and hop bitterness. Very good.

mikesaum (592) - Newark, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours clear golden orangr with a large rocky white head and leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is pretty awesome, rich and creamy smelling along with a warm citrus with a touch of the ginger and some pine, also i notice faint pineapple as well. Taste is also some orange and pineapple,you can taste the ginger but you have to search a little for it because the pine and citrus overpower it a bit, nice smooth body. Great brew again from mikkeller.

Could have been very nice and tasty but too bitter for me this time to enjoy. Nice pineyness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favourite beers, lovely spicy palate where the ginger hits, it appears a little cloudy but the aroma makes up for it. Delicious.

Aroma is tropical fruit and caramel. Round mouthfeel. Nice malty base, fruity hops and little herby too.
