3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(11.2oz bottle) Murky orange body with a towering off-white, stiff head; leaves a web of bubbly lace on the glass. The hoppy aroma smells like a delicious grapefruit; notes of orange, pine, some grass; citrus peel; sweet malt underlying the hops. There’s also some kind of floral, almost rose aroma happening too. Couldn’t wait to taste it. Medium bodied, not much carbonation; oily texture. Flavor is low-profile at first, some mild sweetness, definite caramel. But then the citrus hop flavor opens up. Very clean, clear hop character--perhaps from having only a single hop? The caramel malt returns in the aftertaste to mingle with the hops.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quality brew but not worth the $2.49/can compared to local IPAs. Fine aroma stood out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
