phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), - MAY 9, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2010 Tab @ Mikkeller Bar. Clear amber pour with large frothy tanned hed. Aroma is very hoppy with citrus, lime pineapple - fruity hoppiness. A nice base of caramel malts and berries to keep it chained. The taste is a fine balance between malts and agressive hops. The hops bite your tongue with lime, grape fruit, apples and a great deal of bitterness, and the malts keep up with some caramel. Medium to large body, medium carbonation, long duration. Not a world-class IIPA, but a fine beer.

Bottle. Pours golden with a small head. Layered aroma. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange, citrus herbs and caramel. Fabulous palate, feels thick with medium carbonation. Long, bitter finish. Heavy bitterness, sweet under tones. Layered and complex, there is also some spice. I love this.

R4N5H (837) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016
33cl bottle picked up at De Boerkoning, Amsterdam and poured into a snifter on 16-Aug-2016. Amber with a medium sized beige coloured head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel, malt and tropical fruits. Medium body and soft carbonation. Really sweet up-front, with caramel followed by bitter grapefruit, mango, citrus and floral hops. Sweet and dry bitter finish. Lovely hop profile and tropical fruits, but just a little too sweet.

Draught at Mikkeller Pop Up. May have been the first Mikkeller beer I ever tried ages ago. Still a pretty relevant brew, rich citrus/weed hop bouquet, quite fruit forward with a decent biscuit malt base, good drinkability, fairly dry finish. Solid iipa, definitely one of their classic hop bombs.

Lubiere (12961) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2016
A dark amber ipa with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, nice vinous character, caramel malt with light sulfur notes, pungent resinous floral hops, musky and complex. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with light vinous notes, alcohol warmth, nice resinous floral hops, light licorice, very nice and complex. Bièropholie imports.

willisread (2543) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2016
Tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Huge grapefruit and tropical fruit nose with some sweet malt in there as well. Sweet on the palate but well-balanced. Lots of juicy, hop bitterness: orange juice, grapefruit, mango and bready malts all over the palate. Hides the booze pretty well for the abv. Just a big in your face Double IPA. Nice sweet finish with big bitterness that lingers. Very fruit forward.

UXO (1524) - CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Appearance: cloudy pale amber, short eggshell head, good retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: caramel malt, pine, citrus, floral, nutty. (5/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-high bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate-low carbonation, sweet malty and bitter finish. (3/5) Malt forward caramelly DIPA that is exactly the style I don’t like. Mind you, it’s months past its BB, so that’s probably a factor - I’m sure any hop character it might once have had is long faded. I think I’m going to bring this back to Co-Op and yell at them for putting expired stuff in their “Beer Discovery” packs. It’s honestly the worst Mikkeller I’ve ever had. Reminds me of Green Gold, but even more malt forward, almost toffee. And, actually, when I think about that in the context of some of the other hoppy Mikkeller brews I’ve had, with truly stupidly long shelf lives, I start thinking maybe it’s not age at all. Still gonna go yell at Co-Op though. And no, Mikkeller, you aren’t beating much with this. (11/20)

androman (1843) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2016
33cl shared bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest (Expired 6 months ago). Nose is citric, tropical fruits, parfume, glue. Body is opalescent orange, head is medium, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is honey, tropical fruits, grass, peach, apple, grapefruit, spices. Medium to heavy sweet, light bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium bittersweet, light citric sour, further developing quinine heavy bitter, alcohol is slightly present. Full body, slick texture, soft carbonation. Not quite easy, very tasty, perfect balance, not overhopped, flavorful, fantastic IPA.

Amber hazy with medium off-white creamy head. Nice fruity aroma. Pleasant strong bitterness with sour citrusy notes, some touch of sweet. Long lasting strong bitterness in the aftertaste
