COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earlier batches brewed by Mikkeller at Ørbæk Bryggeri, Ørbæk, Denmark.
A love of American microbrews is the inspiration behind this IPA, brewed with generous amounts of aromatic, American hops, which provide the significant freshness and bitterness with lots of citrus notes. The taste sensations are nicely balanced by the sweetness from the caramel malt.
Ingredients : Water, malt (pilsner, munich and caramunich), flaked oats, hops (chinook, cascade and amarillo) and ale yeast.

Lilja (1950) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2015
Fat på Tempo, Malmö. Smak och doft av mango, aprikos, jäst, grapefrukt och granskott. Lagom sötma, väldigt fruktig och frisk, beska med smak av grapefrukt och tall. Mycket välbalanserad, riktigt gott.

pastymc (17) - Niscemi, ITALY - JAN 13, 2015
Bottiglia 33 cl Birra ambrata, con sfumature arancio e biondo scuro, bel cappello di schiuma pannoso, non troppo persistente,beige chiaro. Al naso l’erbaceo del luppolo si mescola meravigliosamente con il malto, lasciando poi spazio ad aromi floreali. L’amaro del luppolo la fa da padrone in bocca, ma le note maltate sono anche qui ben presenti, con punte di caramello, frutta secca, spezie. La carbonazione vivace,il corpo medio-basso e il finale secco aumentano la beverinità. La bevuta non è molto lunga, ma la birra è molto ben strutturata ed equilibrata.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Hazy orange/amber coloured, medium sized pale beige head, fruity hoppy nose. Moderate malty, caramel, fruity and flowery hoppy with touch of alcohol in rather bitter finish and aftertaste. Well done.

Linnet (1204) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2015
Run of the Mill hoppiness, citrusy, piney notes. Crisp and Clean, amber colour, medium white head, lacing. Noticable but not extremely aggressive bite, mid-sweet. Medium body, average carbonation, short finish. Ok, but a bit of a let down.

slowrunner77 (6578) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
"wow - 98th percentile! i’m a little surprised. i think this ones a pretty average ipa overall. the body and color are nice, and i get what it’s going for...big sweet malt and big aromatic citrus and pine hops...but there is a slight vegetal component to the aroma and flavor that’s just not jivin with me, so it turns out ok, when otherwise it coulda been quite good. not worth the coin when better ipas are available for much cheaper."

Hop_Hedonist (300) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2014
Solid ale right in the mould of a high quality APA - massively bitter hop drive - hugely piney, also good amount of fruit flavour and a herbal edge - decent lick of biscuit malt - a very good drink but somehow doesn’t raise itself above the crowd to be memorable.
