12oz bottle Wine world Panama City Beach. Hazy ochre yellow pour with good 30mm froth. Rich aroma of pure citra hops predominant. Sweet malty hop balance, with litter to none bitterness bite. A mouthful of beer joy. Mikkellerís IPAs are some of the best overseas beers available. Please donít get me wrong, as Iím a Belgium drinker all the way (Iím from Namur/Namen). My older brother/brewer is the first guy I know to board the hop-bomb bandwagon, it has taken me many years to come around and enjoy beers of his liking and this would be one of those. Excellent choice of the 3 available from Chanís Panama. Cheers

ulises77 (13) - Mťxico D.F., MEXICO - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thin white head. Smell like citrus fruit punch, notes of grapefruit, tangerine and orange peel with a little hint floral. Taste like tropical citrus fruit and sweet caramel malt that actually balance very well the punch of the hops. At the end have a nice short bitter whit a hint of sneaked alcohol. This is a really nice IIPA. Awesome beer.

DocJitsu (1182) - Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Pours a very hazy yellow-golden color with a 1-inch antique white head. Head retention is better than average. Pungent resinous, skunky, citrusy hop nose with slight notes of cannabis. Coating on the tongue and mildly astringent. Flavorís approxinate the aromas. Good malt backbone without getting overly expressed.

330ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Hazy orange amber colour, frothy white foam head leaving lacing and aroma of orangey citrus & pine hop. Taste is malt, caramel with floral fruity citrus pine & hop resin bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tangy bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

Diabobale (273) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - MAR 7, 2015
Mi sarei aspettato molto di piý. Le aspettative erano altre. Forse la bottiglia era andata a male ma questo Ť: Schiuma beige cremosa, fine e di poca persistenza. Il colore Ť un dorato opalescente, leggermente torbido. Al naso viene fuori il suo difetto maggiore. Oltre la compulsiva presenza e invadenza del luppolo citra viene fuori un sentore molto nauseante, di lievito stantio. Questo Ť la sua pecca maggiore. Al palato risulta perÚ essere molto armoniosa, con corpo medio a tratti oleoso, con prevalenti sentori di malto e caramello. Al palato le note citriche sono presenti ma non invadenti, con un netto sentore di pompelmo e lievemente di mango. Sorso molto secco con retrogusto assai persistente ma non sgradevole con un ottimo amaro, ancora sentore di pompelmo e leggermente resinoso. Da riprovare

arminjewell (8478) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pour on tap, clear dark orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange peel, grapefruit, citrusy notes into some slight pine, touch of grass into some caramel. Taste was a mix of big citrus, yeast, some grapefruit into a bit of pine, herbal notes, touch of bread and caramel, finishing bitter.
