Trev (1945) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2009
orange colour with a very large off white head. aroma is floral then citrus hop. Light fruitiness. Quite a bit of tart fruitiness in the flavour. A delicate light maltiness to the body. bitterness mellows in the floral finish.

drfabulous (4051) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Sweet hoppy IPA with very strong fruit flavors mixed in there. Floral with lots of citrus. Pricey for a 12 ounce.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
Amber. Big fresh, slightly metallic hop nose (Sauvin, of course). Quite vinous with kiwi and gooseberries. Very bitter, but fresh with fruity qualities. Really nice hop showcase.

daknole (9225) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Amber pour. Whitish head. Floral hops abound with some caramel and fruit notes as well. This is the most complex of the 4 Mikkeller Singe Hop beers that I tried. Somewhat perfumey, citrus, malty, nutty. Good. Very nice.

caesar (5202) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2009
Tap at Copenhagen Beerfestival 09. Clear golden color, short head. Sharp, fresh fruity. Quite hoppy ofcourse. Bitter taste (what else is new). Decent.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Bottle from big D!!!!!!!! Huge whispy head. Subtle citrusy and flowery aroma. Flavor is interesting ... caramel, grapefruit, hops... and a different almondy nut taste. weird? Not sure this is my thing ... dozens and dozens of IPA’s i’d take over this. For starters, Alpine Nelson!

2010-05-07, draught at København Ølfestival 2010, 8-5-6-3-14=36
Hazy golden color; creamy head. Nice grapefruity aroma, delicate. Medium caramel flavor; the body seems weak.

2010-03-02, draught at Ørsted, Copenhagen, 9-5-8-5-17=44
Red-amber color, hazy; creamy head. Pungent passion fruit aroma, light hazelnuts, then some sweat. The mouthfeel is smooth; there is a good caramel flavor, lean and dry, with an immediate hop kick, fruity, aromatic, citrusy, resiny. Well balanced; probably the best of the series. Perfect IPA.

2009-07-30, bottle at På Besök, Malmö, 9-5-7-4-16=41
Hazy amber color. The freshness of the aroma is sublime, flowery passion fruit, infinite. Lean caramel and toffee flavor, the hopping is strong but not oppressive, with oils and a fruity side. Excellent.

Hazy amber color; huge head; more carbonation than the usual Mikkeller beer. Impressive aroma, very fruity, but also floral, reminding candies, and a dash of vanilla; less grapefruit and more complex than the Beer Here Fat Cat, less punching (which indeed was a good thing). Correct body strength, with good caramel flavor, some toffee, very strong bitterness, with a high quantity of hop oils; the hop is quite fruity and a bit resiny; in the end it gets almost herbal; the beer overall can be described better as dry than sweet. Very long final, where there is also a very light metallic touch. Very enjoyable; Nelson Sauvin is a great hop.

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Pours fairly clear copper with large foamy head. Big citrus fruity nose. Flavor is full on hops with nice stone fruit mixed with grapefruit. Medium body with nice chewy texture. Finish is bitter with zest of oranges.

BelgiskOlklub (911) - Viby J, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle. Deep hazy orange body, small diminishing white head. Heavy aroma of flowers and some raw vegetables. Oily texture. Very bitter flavor balanced with a medium sweetness.
