Pours a darker glowing amber with a medium frothy creamy light tan head. Aroma is big centennial, spicy dry pine, bit floral, clean, just a touch of alcohol, but really a nice clean fresh true hop aroma, like sticking your face in a hop sack. Flavor follows, nice spicy floralness upfront, quite clean, just a mild hint of citrus, fizzy sharp pine, then some light toasty rounder malt character indicative of the the maris otter, just a very slight hint of orange, followed by long lasting alcohol starting towards the end of the finish that really ruins the whole experience, lasting alcohol and a bit of pine, also some longer lasting bitterness. Bottle doesn’t appear to be bottle conditioned which I think is really helping clean these beers up recently. Medium bodied, excellent sharp fizzy carbonation. The alcohol is super distraction, uh. Pretty darn dry that really accentuates all that booze. What a great delicate balance of hops.

Aroma - caramel, floral, citrus, skunky, basement aromas, Appearance - amber, orange, clear, minimal head Taste - light sweetness, medium bitterness Palate - medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter Had this out of a Bottle from Louisville Beer Store. This is definitely a standout beer for a non-american Imperial IPA. The initial taste of this beer hit the mark, but the flavor diminished heavily and quickly. While I always appreciate Mikkeller brews, this is one I probably won’t purchase again, but highly recommend for all to give it a go at least once if available.

Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et minimalt skumhoved. Duften er meget humlet med en snert kattepis og en god del citrus. For megen centenial til min kone, men jeg finder den umådelig frisk. Dejlig øl.

Sampled at Copenhagen Beerfestival 2010. Unclear dark golden with a nice frothy off-white head. Explosion of tropical fruits, caramel, toffee and resin. Extremely nice aroma. Taste is medium sweet but ends with a brisque bitterness. Good body! Very nice IIPA!

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2010
A solid nightcap at Mikkeller Bar after a long Friday at the beer festival. Served very nicely and careful from tap with a slightly off-white tophead covering an almost clear, golden-brown body. Tempting aroma of floral hops, fruity shells and subdued sweet malts beneath. Well blended hoppy flavour with pine needles, grapefruits and hints of sweet malts. Rich, still smooth, bitter finish. Very satisfying (Copenhagen, 07.05.2010).

Draught at Blind Tiger. Clear redish amber with lacy white head. Aroma is powerful punch of ripe apple, cherries, orange and peach, also light molasses/dark caramel. Taste is sweet fruits mentioned that goes surprisingly mild but still strong bitter in finish. Awesome, dig it.
