2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
In short: A muddy yeasty fruity amber IPA lacking in many departments. Lame.
How: Bottle 330ml, from a new batch that landed in Vermont and consumed a few days after it hit the shelves, however fresh a Mikkeller IPA can be in Vermont.
The look: Muddy amber body topped by a medium beige head with mediu retention.
In long: Nose is phenolic, some tropical fruits, other yeasty fruit esters, quite a bit soapy and even perfumy (rose water). This is far from what I’ve been used from Citra IPAs that are legions in North-America. Taste is far from clean and crisp. Very yeasty and with grainy toasted cereals, like croutons in a yeast soup. Fruity flavors are like breakfast juice made from extract of citrus fruits and apples. Some resin, green plants, a medicine round-up the flavor spectrum. Full body but strangely lacking malt presence, just a thick yeasty body with the sweetness feeling more like fruit concentrate than usual cereals sweetness. An overall lack of freshness in the character of the beer although this batch being was freshly delivered. Mild bitterness with a finish that adds lemony citric notes. Medium carbonation and muddy mouthfeel. Very lame, I hope this was a bad batch, I’m rarely disappointed by a Mikkeller beer like I was by this one. Just another beer rating for me, my 5000+ ratings are my main accomplishment in my life, I feel like my contribution to this world we live in is as remarkable as the contribution of the letter ‘w’ in the word ‘answer’.

Bottle, cloudy amber white head. Nose is tobacco all the way with fruitiness wrapped in that package... could be the age but I like it. Flavour is tobacco and crackery which I admit sounds terrible but let me assure you it’s not.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out tropical fruits, wet wood, and resinous hops. Flavour brings out more of the same, with perhaps the taste of older hops - shame this couldn’t be imported fresher. Decent IPA, nothing special.

Bottle to IPA glass
Grapefruit, spruce, a touch of mango, and grapefruit. Pours a deep amber with a creamy off white head, but there’s a few particulates floating around. Taste is biscuits, grapefruit, pepper, and tropical fruit.

ei kovin hääppöinen. enemmän britti kuin jenkki fiilistä. suutuntuma on kevyt ja hiilihappoinen.
