glennmastrange (2206) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of grain and caramel, moderate flowers and orange, almost tangerine for the hops, light soap for the yeast with date, brown sugar, pepper, cooked vegetable and a hint of alcohol. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, off-white with good crusty lacing and good legs and is mostly lastly lasting. Color is hazy orange/tan. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation and has a lightly astringent finish. Fruity and peppery, the hops used in this IPA is very unique.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Thanks to Junior at Puerto Rico Food Mart for swinging this one by. Sweeter caramel and pine aroma that most of the single hop series, nice bit of alcohol and some sweet fruit. Great appearance, bit hazy, but huge billowing foamy head. Flavor is sharply sweet, caramel crystal, light grass, plenty of grape, some pine, medium bitterness, classic De Proef odd yeast character.

fletchfighters (1031) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2012
A-- Served a dark, hazy orange amber color. Looks earthy and heavy in the glass. One finger off white head that nestled into a nice looking film through drinking. Good head retention through drinking, as well as good lacing on the sides of the glass. S-- Earthy, heavy, gritty, and pungent. Pine, orange, grapefruit, bubblegum, toffee but quite grainy and earthy. Big malt bill in the nose but just a really earthy IPA. T-- See above. Just really a chewy IPA. Burnt toffee, dirty pine, orange sherbert and grapefruit. M-- Heavy, oily and chewy beer. Low carbonation but shows signs of creaminess in the mouth. Much bigger feel than the nose or taste leads on to. Put in a lot of work to drink this puppy. O-- Slow sipper due to weight. Good aromatic nose but this was just a heavy beer to drink. One was more than enough

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($5): Pours amber, somewhat cloudy, with a loose off-white head. Aroma is fruity and earthy... akin to many other Mikkeller Singles. Taste is quite bitter at the front and then goes through the whole taste. The malts are lighter than I remember them in a bunch of other beers. The hops seem to be providing a lot of bitterness (so, I’ll assume this is fresh). There is pretty much no sweetness. Sustained bitter aftertaste. Really sharp.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy dark orange-amber coloured with strong orange marmalade flavours and a bitter grapefruit and woody finish.
