Fatehunter (1947) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Deep amber color with three fingers of head. Excessive and overflowing head. Smells like overripe grapefruit and lemon... a little honeycomb. A muted smell overall, no sharp or dominant smells. A good bitter taste, solid at first and then gives a little to the malt, but finishes strong. Lasting bitterness. Medium body, low to moderate carbonation. I like the idea of Mikkeller’s single hop beers to showcase each hop variety. Points for that. This particular one had a poor appearance but the rest was good. The Warrior has a great taste by itself, which makes this an enjoying drink.

Nose is citric, candyfloss, flavor is grapefruit, spices, vanilla, honey, biscuit, tropical fruits. Medium sweet, medium hoppy bitter. Finish is long lasting hoppy heavy bitter, light salty acidic. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Quite easy, quite refreshing, great hoppy IPA.

The aroma is full of hops, flowers, citrus and malt. The color is dark caramel with a nice frothy head. The taste is full of hops, citrus and the finish is abrupt and bitter. A nice beer!

willisread (1550) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear gold with a one-finger white head that lingers throughout. Light aromas of pine and as it warms up, some peach, pineapple and passion fruit come out. Average carbonation with a medium body. Fairly bitter with a slight oily quality on the finish. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

TorbenJensen (1406) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2015
The color is copper haze due to settling yeast residues, as I certainly do not detest and therefore leaves end up in my glass. The foam is very robust, almost creamy, but falls after some time to a moderate level. The aroma is citrus and expectant good hops. The taste is slightly fruity peach and other fruit, but only very briefly before the hops takes over. It has just the right bitterness that I think is delicious and characterizes a good American IPA. It is certainly a very delicious and 100% type of real American IPA.
