b3shine (5333) - Indiana, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; malty though. A very slightly hazy dark (almost burnt) golden orange with thin white lacing. Smells like a sweet malt bomb with some hops in the background. Tastes like it smells, but watered down. Average (at best) on the palate. An underwhelming (albeit admittedly old) example of the style.

Hazy brownish orange with white head. Smell and taste musty citrus. Very enjoyable.

Beese (1651) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd Bush on 1 February 2014. Poured a golden/ yellow colour with a slight haze and a dense white head. Fruity aroma with some grapefruit, lychee and straw. Citrus hop bitterness in the flavour, balanced with a biscuity malt backbone. Dry grassy palate.

M_Sack (366) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2013
Tap @ The Taphouse Sydney. Hazy amber with a medium off white head and strong lacing. Subtle aromas of grapefruit, citrus flowers and some caramel malt. Citrus fruit, a hint of resin with some caramel back notes. Strong bitterness throughout the palate. A good showcase of the bravo hop.

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh…

wlajwl (3814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Aroma is citrus, light tropical fruit, earthy notes and a slight metallic edge. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, fruit, earthiness and tangy/sour finish.

BVery (6096) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Orange amber pour with a smaller white head. Tropical fruit and caramel aroma. Bright on the palate, good heft, citrusy. I’m digging it.
