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.

33 cL bottle. Pours cloudy to hazy orange with a huge off-white to light orange head. Dense dry orange and grapefruit hops aroma with a solid malt note. Subdued sweetness and a solid grapefruit hops flavour. Quite dry in the following seconds after the initial sip. Quite dry and somewhat sticky oily hops finish. A bit rough and almost brutal one dimensional bitterness. Cascade hops are tasty - but this is a bit too strong and thick hoppy.

[This beer celebrates my 600th Danish beer - and I well think it is worth celebration with] A hazy amber beer with with a dense light orange head. The aroma is lovely sweet with strong notes of caramel and grapefruit - a real typical Cascade aroma. The flavor is also lovely sweet with strong notes of caramel and Cascade giving it notes of grapefruit and oranges. The end is only slightly bitter. The body is strong and slightly sticky. I just love Cascade.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Very unclear dark amber with a dense, creamy, off-white head. Fresh, aromatic hop aroma. Medium body with some notes of caramel, but otherwise mainly dominated by some lightly citrusy hoppy notes with a bitterness that’s slowly building up to be quite massive on the back of my tongue. But not really the most refined or sophisticated of the Mikkeller IPAs. 310106

omhper (19659) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2005
Bottled. Cloudy nut brown, creamy head. Aroma of grapefruit and licorice. Sweet with very soft, gentle mouthfeel with near full body. When the aromatic hops roll in they cover the finish in layer after layer of grapefruity bitterness. Really good!

fiulijn (14978) - 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.
