Beer pours extremely cloudy producing a murky amber color with a retained off white head. Aroma is intriguing with some citrus and brown sugar and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and doesn’t have enough bitterness for a double IPA, IMO. I wonder how long this beer has been in the bottle?

Bottle as a gift. Aroma of malts and caramel. Taste is heavy bitter with some sweetness, citrus, grassy, caramel. Good one. Have dried this one from tap before and it was better then or maybe I was drunk then.

neongolden (477) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
(Bottle at NK Bar, Stockholm, Oct 15 2014) Pours a lightly hazed pale copper with almost no head, just some tiny white bubbles. Nose is pretty mild, just some citrus/tropical fruit, light dankness and caramel malt. Does not really hint at the lovely palate. On the tongue there are big flavours of grapefruit peel, orange flesh, some pine resin, nice caramel base that is sweet but not overpowering, fading into a grapefruit/orange bitterness that’s moderate but appropriately cleansing and lightly astringent. Just a bit of alcohol. Medium full chewy palate with fairly soft carb. Lovely DIPA, nothing radical but nice flavours and great balance. The I Hardcore U has a better nose but the less overpoweringly sweet malt makes the Mikkeller half of it an easier drink in volume.

Jur (336) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2014
Draught @ Flying Saucer, Addison. Clear dark amber, lil’ head. Slight peppery nose, red fruit. Sweet start, rosebud. Boozy, herby and hoppy full-bodied beer. Well balanced, as Mikkel makes them...

floydian1 (1015) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 13, 2014
On tap @ Mikkeller in Copenhagen. Hazy dark brown appearance with ample off-white head. Nose and flavour is basement sweet caramel malts balanced by a substantial resinous dry hop bitterness that lingers but does not overpower. Medium bodied with a slick texture and average carbonation. A very fine DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into a snifter. Aroma was not very strong and kind of disappointed me. Appearance was very nice with a semi cloudy golden orange color and a one finger off white head that disappeared quickly. Taste made up for what it lacked in aroma. it was great. Just the right amount of sweetness with the caramel straw citrus and grass. The palate I think was right on. Perfect mouth feel, smooth and creamy. Excellent beer and in my top 5 of this style. Try it I doubt you will be disappointed. Cheers!
