4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
My last in this run of single hop Mikkeller IPAs, for now anyway. Out with a Bang. A slightly hazy amber beer with a huge white head. Aroma is clove, ginger as well a huge whiff of pink grapefruit juice. The flavor is sweet pastry shop malt, tempered with the sweetness of the grapefruit notes, and a bitter sticky hoppiness that lingers through the finish. A fantastic IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beer Cartel. Murky orange/amber, medium tight white head, grapefruit dominates aroma, resinous pine, bitterness a bit harsh, overpowers the malt flavour which struggles to come through at all. Might be past it’s best (cap is stamped 03/10/12), my least favourite Mikkeller single hop tasted so far (Amarillo, Apollo, Cascade, Centenniel, Challenger, Citra, Nelson Sauvin), but still an interesting and not bad.

Bottle from Mikkeller. Pours golden orange with 3cm of khaki head. Aroma is buttery resin, tropical fruits and grapefruit. Taste is very resiny, nice and sweet grapefruit flavours with a lingering sweet bitterness. Nice body and mouthfeel, probably the best single hop I’ve had.

Beautiful red-orange colour with a huge off-white head. Big aroma of pine, citrus, floral hops. Taste is sweet with a big bitterness. Oily texture with a moderate carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy and cloudy orange to amber beer with huge head. Lots of exotic fruits in the aroma such as grapefruit and mango. Well balanced taste between sweet malt base and bitter hops. The body is full and the finish long. Could have expected a harsher bitterness, this is a really well balanced and drinkable IPA.

Bottle. Appearance: vibrant cloudy orange, medium white head. Aroma: decently hoppy, a little catty, fruity with an underlying malt backbone. Flavour: perfume like hops, bitter with lots of citrus, peppery, long bitter finish that lingers on the tongue. Quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nose of caramel citrus. Pours copper with off white foam head. Reduces to one finger and lingers throughout. Sweet taste with bubblegum hit. Nice bitterness aftertaste level. I like it being on the sweet side of the balance. A really nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ottima schiuma ( forse ho esaggerato....), naso aranciato intenso e quasi pungente, in bocca rsinosa e citrica con un amaro intenso.
Notine bruciacchiate, finale lungo e astringente. Molto intensa, forse troppo, interessante dal punto di vista "didattico"!
