"#2900 from the brewery i have drank more than any other (i think - Boston beer is up there too!). Lots of citrus and pine in the aroma, but with a stronger than usual sweet malt presence as well, even more so in the flavor. medium bodied, well balanced, easy drinking. bittersweet finish is nice."

hotstuff (4275) - Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Rated on 6-01-2012 at Brew Haven Ticket Release Party at Trion Tavern-New Haven, IN. This draft beer has a small beige head that mostly diminishes, copper body and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit and orange hops and malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops and malt. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a lingering hoppy aftertaste and also a weird flavor on the back of the tongue that I don’t know what it is other than weird.

22 oz bottle sampled in early 2012 from notes. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma has caramel malts, fruity citrusy hops, toasted malt, grass, and a splash of caramel. The flavor has fruity citrus hops, toasted malts, caramel malts, floral notes, and grapefruit. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel. Decent IPA that has avoided some of the storage problems of other Mikkeller IPAs.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle shared with Steve. Very hazy orange-tinted amber. Equally malty and hoppy, sweet orange citrus, slightly chewy body, medium bitterness. A malty IPA, but I often like that.

Headbanger (3388) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2013
22oz bottle 9/23/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-42° in Shaker-Pours a cloudy orangish amber with a small off white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and malt. Taste of the same with more malt and then hops coming in on the back end. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down easy.

Ibrew2or3 (7097) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2013
22oz bomber pours with a clear copper body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up mineral notes, some pine like hop resin mixed with some sugary malts that are lingering around in the background. The taste is similar where I get a pulse of pine hop bitterness, some floral hop notes, a dash of citrus and a thin ribbon of malt sweetness all hitting pretty much all at once. Overall this is pretty bitter and resiny with hops as well as offering a seemingly out of place sugary sweetness. This seems somewhat disjointed as the mineral earthy notes surface into the finish.

Aroma is Lemon, grapefruit, a touch of pine. Cloudy dark yellow color. Small creamy head. Refreshing taste, though a bit bitter/stale/pasty. Good beer though. Nice bite.

Hazy burnished golden color with a foamy off white head. Nice hoppy nose with light toast notes. Orange peel, apricot, orange marmalade and toast. Nice standard IPA.
