3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh 
Amber, clear, thin white head, good lacing
Aroma - citrus fruits, some tropical fruit, soft fruity caramel malt, slight hint of alcohol
Taste of bitter citrus zest, some old lemon zest, touch herbal, dab of grapefruit, touch grassy, soft light fruity quite sweet caramel malt background that allows the zesty hops to come though
Palate - Medium carb and body, quite oily. Bitter palate with the fairly sweet caramel malt just keeping the palate form getting too bitter. Finish is hoppy zest bitter with a fairly long linger with a touch of peppery hop
Overall - Decent good hoppy IPA...one of the better ones I’ve had from Mikkeller

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber pour, big huge frothy lasting head. Caramel, pine, catpiss, orange zest, toffee, grapefruit and pear/rasberry notes in the aroma, amazing stuff. Flavour is eye-watering bitterness back by a huge wad of sweet, sweet fruity malt. Smooth, slick mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Finish is bitter to the point of astringency, with highlights of strawberry. One for the hopheads :)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends (again wrapped with love in classic blue tissue paper that has been saved and put aside to wrap other people’s bottled presents). A lovely clear, sunsent orange hue to the drink once in teh glass covered by a delicate but very present white head. While the spring Copenhagen sun definitely biased the sub-conscious and in turn the tastebuds as to what we wanted out of this beer but the smell, influenced or not, was an incredible blend of pineapple, pinecones and even a little honeydew melon right at the end. The beer went round the kitchen table and beer-losers, ladies, children and the uninitiated alike were equally excited by the smell alone. Impressive stuff! The taste continued the enjoyable experience starting out with sharp, pineneedle notes backed with grapefruit and citrus while the crystal malt offered an unintrusive canvas for the hop alone to be explored on. The hops linger in teh mouth and encourage a second sip. A very worthwhile while enjoy
The Single hop IPA range was a great opportunity to see what each hop doeson its own after years of being (welcomely) bombarded with bevvies loaded with every hop under the sun. A fun and interesting exercise for eager, inquisitive IPA enthusiasts.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle at Probus Wines, Dublin. Pours hazy copper/amber with lasting off-white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma gives a load of pine resin, grapefruit, some deep-ish earthy spice, and caramel. Taste opens up with a hit of bitter pine and pithy grapefruit. Some orange and earthy herbaceous notes too. Sweetish caramel backbone is there, but not overly so - never becomes cloying. Powerfully resinous bitter finish and lingering pine in the aftertaste. This is a top-notch showcase of a powerful hop.
