UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 330ml bottle (Amsterdam, Helsinki) (7:4:7:3:13=3.4)
Coconut vanilla cream aroma. Slightly hazy orange, small tight white head. Sweet malty body, some caramel, some coconut again. Bang on Sorachi Ace, they’ve captured it well. Carbonation alas was a bit harsh, and the palate was a bit thin and spritzery. However, one could swirl that away, and you’d have a very drinkable IPA. Perhaps too sweet for me.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (William K, Helsinki) (7:3:6:4:12=3.2)
Classic sorachi ace coconut aroma. This was poured with all the crap in, so wasn’t as crisp as it could be. Taste pretty dull, just a messy combo of toffee malts and quirky ace hops. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing yummy about it either. Stadin Panimo did a way better exposition of the hop.

Marheb (3857) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Première note aromatique: skunky mais enrobé de citron et de thé vert. Le corps est rond, assez collant avec le même profil que l’arôme. Amertume florale qui pique le fond du palais.

330ml bottle @ Angleterre, Helsinki

Pours dark orange with a large bubbly and sticky head. Strong bubblegummy aroma with notes of fruits, citrus and lemon. Taste is hoppy with notes of bubblegum, lemon and citrus. Finish is bitter and slightly sweet with fruity notes. Otherwise a nice IPA, but the bubblegum notes come through too much.

Foffern (1543) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2012
On tap at Henriks. Pours a hazy orange colour with an off-white small head. Fruity and hoppy aromas with orange and sitrus. Surprisingly different fruity flavours of something wood, some cardboard, and hops. Slick mouthfeel and medium bitterness. Soft carbonation. A special IPA with a interessant hop, but maybe too much cardboard.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange amber with thick creamy light tan coloured head. A little lacing as the head slowly falls away. aromas of sticky slightly sour orange. A little biscuity malt in the back ground. Flavours are initiall sweet thanks to some light caramel. Bitter somewhat harsh finish with more oif the sticky orange coming through.

patricks110 (2283) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2012
A bit off the mark overall. Sorachi Ace pours out a dark amberish orange with a thick yellow tinged head a finger or two thick. The foamy head dies slowly leaving a few sticky spots of lacing. Aroma is sweet and a bit sticky and sweaty with some lemon rind, light spice and light resin. The first sip is lightly malted with sweet lemon and grapefruit notes. An infringing Sorachi ace lemony spice almost like lemon Pledge on the finish and well into the aftertaste. This just tastes weird...and I usually love Sorachi Ace hops. This is just a bit off throughout.

ComradeK (1081) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium chestnut, with a very large off-white head, which lasts very well and leaves excellent lacing. Typical Sorachi Ace notes are prominent in the aroma, especially bubblegum, plum and cherry, backed by faint caramel malt. Strong, bitter hops up front offer very much the same tastes as aromas. Cherry is especially prominent to begin, but it softens a little into more of a plum flavour. Sweet, bubblegum-like notes herald a nice, smooth caramel malt body, which blends nicely with the plum. More bubblegum and some black cherry create a pleasant aftertaste. I am a huge fan of single hop IPAs: using the same base with each hop really highlights their individual flavours, much like a single-variety wine. I enjoyed BrewDog’s IPA is Dead series very much, and I was hence delighted to discover Mikkeller doing the same thing. This is ever so slightly better than BrewDog’s Sorachi Ace IPA from that series, which is high praise. It’s nicely bitter, but with those sweet, fruity flavours to round it out; a lovely beer.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle at Mogwai. Helsingborg, December 2011.
Sweet and fruity aroma of herbs, dill and caramel. Refreshing light body with grass and a nice bitterness. Showcases the Sorachi Hop in a good way. Very drinkable.
