3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Rich copper in colour with a long lasting small off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of light spice, citrus, some caramel sweetness, pine. The flavour is earthy, good hop bite with some oranges and pine, moderate sweetness, woody, fairly chewy. Soapy bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy, bitter. Really nice stuff here, wonderful balance, highly drinkable.

Hoping I simply got a bad or very skunked bottle... poured deep rusty orange with a creamsicle orange head. Huge sediment chunks. Held up to the light it looked like a badly blended smoothie. Absolutely awful taste and smell. Poured out after one sip.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy brown color with a medium off white head. Aroma is citurs, a bit floral / herbs. Tasting earth, grass, a bit of floral, but not as heavy as on the Mikkeller Hop Series Willamette. Light, fast passing bitterness and a nice carbonation. Quite an ok IPA / hops.

Very nice nose. Grapefruit comes through. Kind of an uggo in the looks department. Golden brown with a lot of floaters. Taste is very clean and bitter. The hops are bitter and floral. Almost no residual sweetness. Strong brew.

33 cl bottle 6.8% abv. Thick head with heavy lacing. Very bitter (95 ibu) with an almost smokey caramel note to it. This finishes the 20 bottle hop series collection box i got from Mikkeler and a great finish it is.
