3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle from John’s Market in PDX. Pours a chill hazed orange light toffee with a nice big white head that leaves some sticky lacing. Biscuit malt, floral soap, piney citrus, touches of grass. A bit watery with thinner carbonation. Flavor is malty and earthy with grass and a touch of piney hop with a good amount of floral soapiness throughout. Not a lot of fruitiness at all. Some mild bittering on tail end. My least fav of the Mikeller Single hop brews thus far.

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.

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.

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.

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.
