3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazed dark amber IPA with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, pungent caramel malt with treacle and intense floral hops, piney and green, light doughy notes. In mouth, a nice smooth IPA with caramel malt with loads of fruity esters, smooth herbaceous and piney hops, with citrus pulp, a bit of dark fruits in finale, well done. Bieropholie import, BB 11-11.

330 ml bottle @ Patricks. Hazy orange body with a big off-white head. Relatively mild in aroma, caramel malt, berries and blackcurrant leaves. Flavor has soft malt and a rather general, but distinct bitter touch without so much fruit or anything else. Medium body, and bitter aftertaste. Nice, but a bit straightforward.

A descent brew overall. If you’re a fan of high bitterness & Nugget hops then this is fully for you. Personally I enjoyed this beverage but didn’t fall for this Mikkeller creation. The bitterness limited the potential flavor from the ingredients.

Bottle, tasted beside Apollo and Citra from the series. Grassy nose with something like black grapes. Flavor is a bit dull, some citrus, grass, nothing really stood out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a big white head that retains well and leaves a lovely thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral and citrus hops with toasted malts. Taste is a bold citrus and earthy hop bitterness with a solid malty sweet backbone. Medium body and good carbonation. A really well done IPA that is definitely recommended for a tasting.
