3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A-- Poured a light amber color with hints of orange through the beer and pour. A light khaki colored head, aggressive pour left me with a huge 1 finger head, once settled. A sorts of lacing with the head. Thick and sticky, reminds me of a root beer float lacing. Medium to large bubbles in the head and decent head retention when swirled.
S-- Big bold spicy hop smell. Fresh grass but earthy sort of smell. Decent carmel background. Fresh citrus is also mixed in with this.
T-- A lot of pine, mixed with earthiness. A rather big carmel blast right of the first sip with just a bit of citrus to back this up.
M-- Very medicinal feel in the very end. A little oily, and orange peel becomes more evident. For me grass also becomes more apparent in the mouth than in the taste. Very crisp and piney start but oily and orange in the finish. Medium carbonation to this but heavy, chewy and spicy. Flavor does stay with you a long time.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
