COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed by Mikkeller, Denmark. Recent batch brewed by Mikkeller at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium.
The third in the series of single hop IPAs from Mikkeller. Brewed with Cascade, a true American classic hop type. This hop is less powerful than the ones used in the previous two single hop IPAs - creating a great balance with the beers other aspects.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pilsner, cara-crystal and munich), hops (cascade) and yeast.

Hazy dark orange pour with white head, sweet caramel aroma. Can’t detect much for a hop/citrus/pine aroma though. Taste starts sweet and finished slightly bitter, hops aroma shows up more when drinking. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Well balanced, not a crazy hop head ipa, but a little too sweet for me.

jamestulloch (1228) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Aroma: Flowery, pot puri and yeast aroma.

Appearance: Hazy deep amber/brown body with a thin off-white head. Nice lacing.

Taste: Soft peach, orange and bitter hops. Not quite as punchy as I was hoping for but very nice nonetheless.

Palate: Medium to full body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation fizz.

Overall: Not as intense as other Mikkeller IPAs I’ve tried, but this is still bitter and flavoursome.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a mostly lasting and good lacing creamy off-white head. Aroma is fresh with citrus, lime, caramel, flowery. Taste is light+ sweet and bitter. Body is light+, texture is oily/watery, carbonation is soft. Finishes dry. Quite mild aroma.

Cloudy orange, apricot color. White head. Sweet, hoppy aroma of delicious cascade hops. The taste is hoppy gummy and stalky and delicious.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Murky, glowing orange-red-brown body. Massive, steady off-white head. Nice bight grapefruit aroma. Cascade is really one of the greatest hops. Bold and full of bright grapefruit citrus, this is quite an enjoyable beer, though with the big malt and yeast presence I still think it is more of an APA. A pretty good beer, certainly, but not aggressive enough hopwise to warrant the pricetag.

33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 27.06.2009
Aroma has gooseberry bush, some citrus and hints of resin. Flavour has exotic fruits, hops, gooseberry bush, some pine needles and hints of nettles. Very good and rather rich for a single hop.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2013
On tap at CBC, Clerkenwell. Bright copper color with a white head. Citrus, kind of funky/dirty smelling, but not sour really, just dirty. Super bitter, just kind of smacks you in the mouth with hops. Very interesting, mellowed out as it warmed a bit, lots more citrus flavor developed as well.

On tap at slowbeer. Deep orange pour with a thick off white head. Great lacing. Grapefruit/citrus dominant nose. Pine hops and citrus are dominant in the taste. Very hoppy bitterness. Citrus stays right through. Typical solid effort from mikkeller ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
