COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Denne gang har Mikkeller brygget en single hop med Nugget-humle. Der er tale om en virkelig kraftigt humlet IPA. Mange vil sikkert tænke på Nugget-humlen, som en udpræget bitterhumle det ofte optræder i de store amerikanske IPA’er, men med denne single hop IPA, giver Mikkeller dig mulighed for at smage Nugget-humlen helt solo.

Smell is amazing - beautifully aromatic that hits at delights to come. Unfortunately taste is a bit of a let down given the nose. Still very enjoyable but doesn’t quite get there.

A rather good IPA but not one to turn over my world as I know it. Bitter, of course, and very smooth, but not as special as some of the other beers by this brewery.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Bottle. Nice orange color with big head. Aroma is fruity (pineapple, peach, etc.) and fresh with a nice hoppy touch. Flavor is also fruity with dry hops as a great balancing force. Very nice IPA.

Ambrata, schiuma alta e persistente, molto amara con note di caramello, luppolo, poco fruttata. Discreta.

Pours a bright and hazy amber orange with a very big, super sticky, and clingy head. This beer has some pretty amazing head retention. Has a very interesting citrus, orange-grapefruit thing going on in the nose. Moderate bitterness, light for the style, the beer almost comes across as sweet with the first taste. Taste follows the nose, with a caramel sweetness chased by bitter orange rinds. There’s an underlying character of spruce and freshly mown grass that isn’t unpleasant for the style. The malt bill stands up in this beer, though it moves away from the strong notes as in others and moves more towards the spiced (think rye bread) realm. This beer reminds me of similar IPAs which use Cascade or Amarillo for hopping. I’ve had several of these now (unfortunately not all in the same evening) but this stands out a bit more.

Pours a smoky golden brown color with minimal white head. Nose of raisin, spice, and a hit of hops. Taste starts out sweet like a Belgium trippel and finishes with a mild taste of bitter hops. Medium bodied with a small amount of carbonation and a smooth finish. Perfect mix of trippel and ipa with a great hop finish.

EHouse (170) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Orange tinged molasses fills my goblet with a lovely topping of billowy tan. This smells like a barley wine: tons of sweet malt, a little spice and boozy citrus. A medium body of spritzy bitterness that tastes like spicy malt and a little bitter citrus. Long finish of creamy malt, spicy tart hops. The malt and hops fight for dominance of my palate creating a slight taste imbalance, but otherwise a good IPA.

simoneopazz (148) - , ITALY - FEB 4, 2010
ambrata con un bell’aspetto e con uno splentita testa di schiuma. l’aroma risulta speziato con note di luppolo, scorza di limone, e leggermente erbacea. un bel retrogusto amaro e parecchio persistente. non è la mia mikkeller preferita ma devo dire che è un buonissima birra!!!!

Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2009
Aroma of yeast and berries. Appearance is amber with thick white head. Flavor of yeast, hops and citrus. Overall a nice and bitter IPA with touch of Belgium.

A nose of pineapple, lemon and yeast. Taste is of passionfruit and cookies and has a palpably belgian character. It’s quite bitter, but it also has some acidity to it. Finish is dry. I really like this series, but this one was weaker than the other I’ve tried. It’s not so fresh either.
