3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
EBF2008. The color is dark red mahogany and the aroma has nice, fruity hoppy notes with hints of pine and a lot of smooth caramel. The flavour has notes of pine, resin, fruit, caramel, hints of licorice and a little ash. IMO the finish is a little unbalanced, but it’s still a very nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[on tap at EBF 2008]
Smells like hops: pine and spice. Also toffee and notes of butterscotch oak, walnut, and grapefruit. Yellowed brown and cloudy with a wispy cover and ring. Very bitter--just a bit too much for the malty goodness which is overshadowed. Almost salty from so much hops. One dimensional, but really is hoppy--citrus/pine/currant/raisin. Medium body, spicy, bitterness eventually dissipates.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
