My bottle label is some kind of abstract shades of brown as opposed to the image shown here, but apparently it’s the same inside. I should note that I think Mikkeller is an over-hyped, over-priced POS...at least in my experiences. However, I really like the idea of their single hop taste test with 19 hop varieties. So, let’s taste armadillo hops. Aroma is, well...apparently what amarillo hops smell like, very piny. Appearance is a muddled brownish orange with sediment. Large head quickly dissipates. Taste is woody, chalky, and gamey if that makes sense to you. If this is a good representation of amarillo hops, I can cross them off my like list. Does this make the beer bad? Well, yes and no. Bad to me, because I apparently don’t care for amarillo hops. And since I use this site as a diary for ME and MY beer tastes...sorry Mikkeller, you get yet another bad check from me. However, I applaud your series idea and only wish the other 18 were available and damn it to hell wish they weren’t $9 a sample.

sonotono (248) - torino, ITALY - FEB 13, 2016
Ambrata/arancione, torbida. Profumo floreale, agrumato, leggero erbaceo, speziato e pungente. Carbonazione media, appena percepibile il sapore dolce maltato, poi un bell’amaro intenso sui toni agrumati, molto lungo, pungente.

Scrumpy369 (476) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 14, 2015
Bottle at hopaholic. Hazy orange colour with a white head. Nose of resin with some sweetness. Taste is mostly sweetness with a hint of floral hops. Not what I expected from a double ipa but nice.

altonbrownd (5629) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2015
3/28/2010 9:34:57 AM Bottle from Bierkoning. Another fantastic IPA from Mikkeller with a very familiar hop variety, that reminds me of many American beers. Dark orange body with huge head. Really nice hoppy nose with fruits and spices in it. Taste very creamy of hops and pines. Some citrus too. Slight on the bitterness. Creamy and very yummy.

MarcoDL (4140) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle. Golden pour. Aroma of grapefruit citrus and grass. Taste of mild grapefruit, grass, little yeast and acidic citrus. Too much co2, annoying. Bit too watery, decent.

olsvammel (5976) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2015
On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Buttery smell with caramel, some fruits and sugar. Malty taste with caramel, also fairly sweet. Diacetyl? Lacks hops and feels faded and poorly balanced. Way to malt focused for a single hop.

This is an excellent beer, works great with a grilled lamb fillét. Or just as it is on a cold day when u are sitting infront of a bonfire.
