4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Pours chill hazy copper with 2-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is big tropical fruit, with pineapple, tamgerine, black pepper, and caramel malt. Tastes astringent, with a high IBU level, and flavors of tangerine, pineapple, pepper, and a hefty caramel malt bill. The palate is not real dense, and the hops dominate. This one is very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
