The usual cloudy orange white head combo. Medium body. Aroma of mango, pineapple and pine. Long bitter finish, chewy malt in the middle. What’s not to like?

IlGagario (114) - Modena, ITALY - MAR 23, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore ocra/arancio intenso. Magnifica testa, densa e pannosa, di ottima persistenza. Bel naso floreale e agrumato di luppolo. Ottimo aroma di sagace luppolo Simcoe, floreale e in realtà poco resinoso, agrumi crespi. Gusto amaro netto, di intenso luppolo floreale. Finale di amarezza più sferzata, sempre con punch di ottimo luppolo, concreto e soddisfacente, entro il giusto limite gustativo, senza strabordi saponati. Il corpo appare medio (l’alcool è gestito benissimo), trama oleosa e terrosa. Una imperial IPA assolutamente accessibile, di facile beva, di discreta scorrevolezza e di ottima fattura. Dal buon Mikkeller un ennesimo prodotto superlativo, di cui sottolineo l’ottimo controllo sugli elementi impiegati, conducenti ad una giocosa intensità che perdura durante l’intera consumazione.

Hazy orange color with medium white head. Dank aroma, lots of resin, pine, peach and caramel. Taste follows the aroma, dank, resiny, piney, citrusy, peachy and a good bitter aftertaste. I prefer other Imperial Single Hop by Mikkeller.
