A great fruity smell and a very nice balance between hops and bitterness. An explosion of taste when you drink this beer and the plesant taste stays long. One om the best tasting beers in 2013! Try it if you can!

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - DEC 2, 2012
(33 cl bottle) Hazy, bright orange colour with a beautiful, mostly creamy yellow head. Intensely citrussy and fruity aroma: loads of lemon peel and some lychee/mango. Taste is bitter, yes, but thanks to the massive hoppy aroma and some sweetness from the malts, oats and wheat, it’s still quite pleasant. A tapestry of hoppy flavours on the palate, this beer stays with you long after the last drop is swallowed. I am really pleased!

Shared with jimmythespoon at brewfellas. A very hoppy, almost IPA pale ale. Excellent mango and citrus aromas. Great taste and aftertaste. One of the best of its kind.

Absolutely wonderful! Which scent of fruit. Very odor, very taste of the fruit also. The aftertaste is left long and is really good. A truly wonderful beer. I am really happy that I got hold of this. However, I think this beer will not be a fall and winter brew. A summer beer this should be.

Keg @ BrewDog. Muddy amber brown colour, not much head. Big hop aroma. Massive dry citrus fruit hop & mango flavour. Grapefruit aftertaste. A great pale ale.

Love APA. So much love. Citrus, grapefruity magic. Love mikkeller. Need more APA. Double dog high on radar

Bottle @ Fairbar. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich hops, citrus, peach, pine, apricot, caramel and malt. Wonderful aroma!

fiulijn (15060) - 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.
