Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2009
Another Mikkeller beer drunk to celebrate a century, this time my rating number 12,800. I’ve had this several times both bottled and draft. A slightly hazy amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma is very sweet with strong spicy notes of hops, lending it notes of cinnamon and ginger as well as fruity notes of grapefruit. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of hops lending it notes of cinnamon, lime, pine needles, and other spices, leading to a bitter finish. Very refreshing. I just love the Nelson Sauvin hop.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2009
On tap. Pours a slightly hazy golden with an off-white head leaving some lacework. Very spicy, fresh and berry-like nose. Medium body, light fruit notes and then again this fresh and berry-like hopping that leaves an almost smooth bitterness. Very interesting. 170509

omhper (19333) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2009 Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy golden/amber, small head. Minty black currant aroma. Mid-sweet and medium bodied. Uncomplicated malt acting as support to the minty black currant hops. Lasting but unassaulting bitterness. Great IPA!

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2012 22nd September 2009
Cloudy amber beer, frothy white head. Rich hoppy nose. Soft frothy palate. Fresh rich hops - not grassy but something else. Well integrated with rich malt. A little citrus and that ’something else’ again on the back of the tongue. Very tasty.

Grape with traces of blackcurrant and kiwi, Very nice!

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.
