11.2 oz. bottle. Date on the cap: 16/12/11. A deep copper pour with a thick and fluffy antique white head that leaves rings of lacing down the side of the glass. A maltier aroma than the other beers I’ve had in the single hop series thus far. Caramel, grapefruits, lemon zest, and faint cardboard scents in the mix. Solidly medium-bodied. Fuller, and much more well-balanced than the other beers in this series. More complex too. Smooth caramel upfront taste-wise. A bit of a grainy biscuitiness in the middle. Drying grapefruits and citrus rinds follow. A spicy finish with some pepper.

ignorant (102) - madrid, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2016
coppery orange color dark and murky, with white foam with little restraint. Tropical fruits such as mango smell, bitter orange, ripe tangerine, grapefruit, lemon and some candy. bitter taste with replicas of smell sweeter fruits and resins. Fresh, light and smooth dry and bitter aftertaste. Body and carbonation means

BenOver (262) - SLOVENIA - AUG 25, 2016
Pours golden-hazy with a slightly off-white, quickly diminishing top. Aroma is strong, but I can’t quite say of what. Not hoppy, not fruity... Sour like aroma, reminding me of an old cellar. Sour taste, low CO2, I’m not a fan of sour ales.

From a bottle. Lots of biscuit malt flavours, plenty of grass, pine and a little resin in the finish.

Fules (729) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 14, 2016
Sötét borostyán szín, nagy, tartós,bézs hab. Illata inkább zöldfűszeres, és kevésbé intenzív, valamint nélkülözi a gyantásságot. Íze markánsan keserű, pici savanykás vonással. Utóíze szinte csak a komló keserűjéről szól. Testes darab.

jandd1983 (3791) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Sampled at the W&C Place Beer Fest 2016. It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of grassy hops, pine and oranges. The taste was similar to the aroma with some bitterness, orange, zest, yeast and a touch of grapefruit. Pretty tasty.

Quality brew but not worth the $2.49/can compared to local IPAs. Fine aroma stood out.

ABUSEDGOAT (2566) - California, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Hazy slightly darker amber colored, moderate head, good lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, orange, some caramel. Medium bodied, moderate to high bitterness, quite drinkable - good balance of flavors.

Panzerfaust (785) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - FEB 16, 2016
330ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a hazy orange color with a big off-white head that lingers leaving a nice lacing. Aroma is freshly hoppy, dark green and pungent with intense piney, resinous character. Notes of spruce, resin, tobacco, cannabis and kiwi. Lacks some brightness but it’s still interesting. Taste is very bitter with some soft and gentle fruity sweetness. Most flavors continue the aroma profile giving resinous, piney bitter touches and hints of grass, green herbs and kiwi. Medium body, soft carbonation. Quite dry and refreshing. Medium to long aftertaste. One of the best of the Mikkeller Single-Hop series. Tasty, intense but a bit one-dimensional.

Dark orangish color, fluffy white head. Metallic aroma, old hop, and caramel malt. Taste is metallic, bitter bite and lingers. Overall, not very good. Would avoid.
