Hazy orange with good, creamy, white head / Bright nose of pine, cream, and cooked fruit / Medium body, some sweetness, creamy, with excellent balance and lightly biting hops and bitter finish / Muted, somewhat oddly herbaceous flavors of orange, grapefruit, spun sugar, soap, and cut pine / A might peculiar, but I enjoyed it.

It poured a golden/amber color with a white head. The aroma was of dark fruit, some earth, bread, spices, some sweetness and earthiness. The taste was dry, spicy, citrus, bitter lemons and oranges. A very tasty IPA.

Bottle shared amongst friends. This was the 1st beer of my Mikkeller Blowout pt.3 and it was definitely a good one. Sweet honey malt aroma mixed with earthy hops. Very well balanced flavor and super easy to drink.

Thanks to my brother for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the resin and pine notes, with a hint of biscuit malt thrown in. The flavor is very similar, with the resinous notes coming through. There is also a decent amount of orange citrus, as well as some biscuit malt that keeps the bitterness low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bomber. Citrus and pine with strong bitterness throughout. Malty sweetness shows up as the brew warms. Finish is sticky sweet turning to a strong lingering bitterness. Tasty.

Orange with a medium white head. Fresh aroma and taste with hops, pine and citrus. Also a lot of toffee. Dry finish with quite a lot of hops. Good stuff.

En ganska behaglig lite lade back smak och doft. Tydlig humle, en del kola och en fin balans men inget som slår en med häpna.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy medium golden color with a minimal white head. Aroma of citrus, hops and hay. Light citrus flavor with hints of sweetness followed by a nice hoppy bight at the end. Slightly bitter finish. Feels crisp and clean in the mouth. Solid IPA but pretty expensive.
