4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Intensité de malt et d’houblons, les deux mélangés d’une manière très agréable. À l’aveugle, cependant, je n’aurais pas parié sur le Citra comme houblon principal dans cette recette! Je suis un peu étonné en fait. N’empêche, ça se boit comme de l’eau, c’est réussi, et que dire qu’autre?.. C’est pas mauvais du tout! Cheers!

A murky, orange beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has papaiya, grapefruit, fructose, some pine needles and pineapple. Good aroma. Medium bitterness and nice sweetness, not even close to dry but still balanced. Taste has pine, grapefruit, pineapple, fructose, sweet pine in the end. Medium+ bodied, smooth enough. Good and enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster from the owner of The Bottle Shop in Taiwan. Had a few drinks there and I told him I am dubious about IPAs from overseas because of the time it takes to get from the source. I gotta say, I was surprised. Pours a super cloudy orange color with a white head. Aromas are a bit subdued but still all the tropical fruit and citrus. Bitterness is minimal. Better than I was expecting but not phenomenal.

Bottle at home. Murky orange pour, thin white head. Aroma is very fruity, fresh, full of citra and with a hint of unfermented sugars. Flavor is sweet, fruity citrussy hops and with a thick body. Well balanced, smooth and very well drinkable. Lovely IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. Mikkeller’s IPAs are some of the best overseas beers available. Please don’t get me wrong, as I’m a Belgium drinker all the way (I’m 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 Chan’s Panama.
