33cl bottle. Hazy orange colour, slightly red, with a white-yellowish head. Some sediment presence. Toffee aroma blended with licorice, quite intense. Smoky bitterness concerning taste, earth, sugar, and hints of herbs (subtle). Mouthfeel is moderate creamy, good carbonation. Pleasant.

Aroma has fruity hops, some gooseberry bush, hints of nettles and biscuits. Flavour has gooseberry bush, some fruits, nettles and caramel. A bit straightforward like single hops usually, but nice stuff still.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours hazy amber, with medium off-white foam head. This beer was brewed in 2011, so is not bitter nor hop-aromatic anymore. Because of Dranken Geers: huge beer shop but not serious for the shelflives! More than 3-4 months for a single hop IPA is a non-sense. All the identity and typicity of the beer is in its hop variety. Hop flavours and bitterness decrease really quickly. It smells old ale with some remaining hop notes. But nothing really distinctive.
Too bad, I’ll tatse it another time.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma are very caramel and raisin oriented. This also comes a lot through in the flavour with some melon and peach maybe. A got hop for this beer in my opinion, but maybe it’s a bit off-balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish amber. Huge frothy head. Aroma is sour. Taste is mildly malty with a sharp bitterness. The sour doesn't come through interesting.

OK IPA. Fortfarande är magnum favoriten i single hop serien. Ganska måttligt humlad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Three finger foam. Amber haze. Faint aromas of moss green leaves on forrest soil. Bitter Caramalty taste. Medium body and carbonaton. A bit boring aroma hop.

On tap at Novare Res, Portland ME in April 2010. Hazy amber. Not the most assertive or aromatic hop on this evidence. Relatively earthy. Pleasant drinking but nothing leaps out. Not my favourite of the Mikkeller single hop IPA series.
