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.

2009-04-18, bottle, 9-4-7-4-16=40
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.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Bottle from WLV. Let’s see how this goes as it’s been much of a hit in these parts. Bottle is super carbonated, though no gusher. Pours a slightly hazed copper with a fluffy large bubbled head. Nose is pretty nice, quite fruity, lots of stone fruit, apricot and cherries with some resin in there as well. On top of that, some nice candied notes. Kind of like the best qualities of Amarillo, actually. Faint grainy notes, mild almond as well. On taste, this is pretty outstanding. Loads of apricot, mango, again with almonds, some like candy notes, though not sweet at all. Damn, I’m with Ughsmash, if I could get sixers of this for under $10, I wouldn’t need anything else. Finish is clean, dry, a touch of spice. This is a damn cool hop. Awesome.

A Mes rate: bottle at home with The Cad.
Huge thanks to Anders for sending this over. It’s no secret that I love Nelson Sauvin, somehow Anders knew this though I’m not sure we ever discussed it, and messaged me out of the blue saying he was sending a bottle over for me. LEGEND! This little beauty did exactly what I was hoping it would. Beautiful tropical fruit NS all round. Faint spice and fruit, elegant yet assertive bitterness offset with the faint sweetish feel of my favourite hop. Fruity splendour start to finish on top of a glorious Mikkeller base. Brilliant.
