Rating #28from the european beer festival 2008. Has a darker look, brownish, and a thicker palate than the singel hop version. Other than that the aroma is again flowery and grassy with a highly bitter flavor.

Had this at the European Beer Festival Kobenhaven 13-09-08 This wouldn’t win a beauty contest pouring as muddy brown as it did, but it was a very good beer. Nice hop oils very pushy bitterness, yet another classic example of Mikkeller’s in yer’ face approach approach of beer making. I liked this more than others on our table.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
Sampled at EBF2008. Pours an unclear yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is very hoppy (grapefruit). The flavor follows the nose with lots of hops (grapefruit). The mouthfeel leaves a good bitterness, and leaves no doubt of the simcoe hops. A very good IIPA.

oh6gdx (20003) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2008
Draught@EBF2008. Deep hazy ambery colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity hops, alcohol, very sweet, and also has some mild notes of vanilla. Falvour is grass, alcohol, mild fruity hoppy dryness. Nice brew otherwise, but a little bit sticky sweet.

Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours muddy brown with a small, creamy, film head. Aroma is lovely hoppy, very fruit, melons, apricot and grapefruit. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely hoppy, though never overly bitter. Apricot dominating over a fair caramel malt base. Really a nice IIPA.
