fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Cloudy golden color. The aroma is strong, very fruity, also sweet; mix of tropical fruits and pineapple; very fresh; later it gets more earthy and a bit sweaty. Toffee and caramel flavor, strong, and medium dry, not new in Mikkeller beers; strong bitterness; some malty sweetness finally appears; the hops are more oily than fruity now; long final.
Very good, almost a Double IPA in profile, take it for good or bad.
