3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Kaisla) Poured hazy amber with medium sized, dense and white head. Aroma contained citricness, grapefruit and malts. Palate was medium bodied and stinging with medium carbonation. Flavours were citricness, fruitiness, grapefruit, some pine, toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste contained bitterness and pine resin. The bitterness unfortunaly was too close being acrid. Otherwise this was quit good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First beer proper of 2010. Pours a beautiful burnished orange under a thick collar, whitening the glass with lace. Pungent hop-drenched aroma of orange peel, lemon and lime jelly, pollen, spliff, celery...Some almond peeping through under the head. Big, bitter, mouth-drying chalkiness a bit HTDC; bitter orange and quinine with digestive and nut husk traces. Not quite as floral and mandarin juicy as promised by the aroma. Belgian condition+boatload of pungent US hops should, but doesn’t quite = sex in a glass.

Bottle. Pours clody light amber coloured with a nice creamy lasting and lacing off white head. Aromas of orangefruit, lemons, floral, citrus and pine. Flavours of grapefruit, caramel, grassy hops and resin. Great brew! One of my favourite of the Single Hop IPA’s.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another one from Mikkellers single hop series. Heads up again for the idea of making so many different and giving us the chance to be a little more aware of which kinds of hops we prefer. Cheers. The pour is a clear dark amber with an impressive huge and almost orange fluffy head. And the head stays there until you reech the bottom of your glass - thats ssoooo nice. The nose (when you have dried off the foamylike head) is hoppy in floral and sweet malty way. The taste is likewise malty and hoppy side by side with a creamy palate with a very bitter finish. Its round and mild and all calm until we hit the finish then its agressive in a bitter way. This one is good, but my favorite of the single hops is still the Simcoe.
