4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium chestnut, with a large off-white head, which lasts fairly well, and leaves good lacing. Citrus hop notes abound on the nose, with lemon juice and zest, orange rind and a touch of lime backed by faint caramel malt. Lemon juice is prominent up front, although it softens a little, revealing mandarin orange and orange zest flavours. There is just enough caramel malt presence to balance it out. A touch of sweetness and a refreshing lime flavour create a very clean finish. The citrus characters of Simcoe hops really do come through in this beer, to create a razor-sharp and exceedingly refreshing beer. Another classic single variety IPA from Mikkeller.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Firm golden, decent cap of head. Mandarin and pineapple nose, steep sweet maltiness. Initial taste is marmaladey juicy, playful sweet mango and clementine. Stringently bitter, fleshy sweetness. Carbonation is rock solid, nice and clean. Kicks of polished passion fruit, lingering marmalade sweetness again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is pine, dank (Simcoe) hops and fresh yeast. The flavor is hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit pine needles, malts and a very bitter finish. Definitely looking forward to when Mikkeller gets the old Alesmith brewery, their fresh IPAs made in the U.S. are awesome.
Earlier Rating: 3/7/2011 Total Score: 4
Very dry pine aroma and flavor, a very good American style IPA that stands up to examples of the style in this country.
