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.

TheDog (573) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2009
Bottle. Golden amber colour with very nice and white head. Aroma and taste of fresh flowers, citrus and a bit caramel. Wauu what a pleasant and fresh mouthfeel. The cascade hoppy nose gives a very long aroma all the way, to the last drop. Very good jantelov or not ;-)

Dedollewaitor (14647) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2009
33cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. Highly anticipated. Pours a handsome orange golden with a lasting white head and lacings. Floral , citrus and grapefruity hoppy nose. Taste is likewise. Smooth, mega crisp, hoppy and dry. Very enjoyable and quaffable for sure!

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAR 21, 2009
Bottle. Amber coloured brew with a huge offwhite head. Scent of resin, pine, flowers and a basket filled with citrus fruits. The flavour is fruity and dry with notes of grapefruit and spices.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2009
Huge offwhite coarseish head. Deep amber body with vigourous carbonation. Minty old socks and tropical citric fruit aroma with barnyard notes. Dry-sweetish peppery fruity barnyard taste with metallic notes. Fizzy, chalky mouthfeel. Thin-bodied. Sharpish. Dry orangey peppery barnyard aftertaste lingers forever. Nice. (0.33l bottle, Olympen.)

skortila (4826) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2009
Bottled. Aroma has grapefruit, tangerine peel. Hazy, orange coloured with an off-white head. taste is quite bitter, has grapefruit hops. Bitter bite in the end, not too heavy though. Good one this is.

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Dark orange body with healthy head. Hoppy nose from 10 paces. Prickly mouthfeel. Taste of hops aplenty, pine and some fruits, including citrus, although harder to detect. The first European beer (I’ve had) that could easily qualify as an American one. Hats off (coming from a hophead.)

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 13, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 Bottle. Orange color. Tangerine, red berries and chalk in the aroma. Initial milky character flows into a firm earthy, yeasty hopbitterness with notes of pineapple, banana, melon and citrus. Yeasty aftertaste. Bottle. Best until dec 11, tasted feb 13. Dark amber color. Peach, oily hops and citrus in the aroma. Oily citric hopbitter flavor with peach and grapefruit. Earthy hopbitter finish. Still a good beer.

Sigmund (5730) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2009
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.9%. Deep golden to orange colour, big and lasting off-white head. Lovely aroma of Cascade hops, with the typical grapefruity and pney notes. The flavour is again typical Cascade (in plentiful quantities) from start to finish, lots of grapefruit, pine needles and resin. A nearly Campari-like (wormwood) bitterness in the finish. Some malty sweetness does its best to balance some of the hoppiness. Has enough hops to satisfy hardcore hopheads - I would have been satisfied with less, even though I love Cascade.

jbrus (4991) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle@Home. Sweet, floral, fruity (grapefruit) aroma, hint of caramel malts. Amber colour, beige head, good lace. Light malty, herbal start. Very bitter finish, loads of grapefruit. Too harsh in the bitterness for me. Well brewed, not my taste.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2009
Amber color; big head. Nice hoppy aroma, fruity, with sweat and paper, camomile. Caramel flavor, a bit mellower than the Warrior tasted side-to-side, with less resins, a bit floreal. In the final it reminds me some rubharb candies, strong bitterness, long, warming, more complex. Very pleasant.
