COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earlier batches brewed by Mikkeller at Ųrbęk Bryggeri, Ųrbęk, 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.

CacheManyHose (202) - HONG KONG - MAR 28, 2014
Cloudy amber with small fizzy off-white head and lots of legs. Smell is faint, yeasty hop and dry grass and a bit of corn. Taste is very hoppy - resinous and dry - with a tiny bit of spicy malt. Very bitter dry finish. A very American tasting IPA.

HKdIPA (260) - HONG KONG - MAR 28, 2014
Deep hazy amber - nice. Aroma is floral piney hops but a bit of rubbery smell in there too, which taints both the smell and taste for me. Otherwise a good very dry bitter IPA but the slight rubber/rust flavor ruins it. Maybe a bad bottle.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, SF. Hazy amber with a foamy head. Awesome fruit candy aroma. Sweet fruity taste, with a boozy bitter finish. Full body. Great IPA.

tomekk1978 (509) - POLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana biała, obfita, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: początkowo bardzo ładny cytrusowo- żywiczny, jednak po chwili robi się nawet zbyt "zielony", jakby łodygowy, co nieco go osłabia. Jedynie lekka kontra słodowa. Smak: zdecydowanie wytrawny, chmielowy, ale z wyczuwalną słodową słodyczą oraz pieczeniem alkoholowym na końcu. Do tego pozostająca jakby szorstkość, nieco mniej przyjemna. [3,9/5] Kolejne solidne piwo z Mikkellera, które jednak nie powala. Początkowy aromat był niesamowity, ale pod wpływem utlenienia uległ zmianie i przestał mi się tak bardzo podobać. Poszedł bowiem w stronę zielonych części roślin zamiast cytrusów. Smak również zmienia się z czasem i jest jakby mniej goryczkowy, ale wspomniana szorstkość pozostaje. Nie jest to zła IPA, ale coś mi w niej nie odpowiada. Do tego wrażenia smakowe idą raczej w kierunku imperiala. To akurat dobrze, bowiem lubię piwa z wyrazistą kontrą słodu, ale jest w nim coś czego nie potrafię określić. Zastosowane ciemniejsze słody (monachijski i caramunich) dają głębszą barwę , ale karmel się zbytnio nie przebija. Trudno stwierdzić czy to zaleta czy wada. Piłem już lepsze propozycje autorstwa Duńczyka.

Davvero un’ottima ipa: caratterizzata da un amaro esuberante, un’intensa vitalitą fruttata che attraversa una vasta gamma di sfumature e include frutta tropicale, bacche, agrumi e una presenza maltata ben fatta. Ottima sotto ogni aspetto.

allmyvinyl (3657) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2014
330ml bottle from Brewdog online shop. Pours hazy amber, big white head. Aromas of pine, resin and caramel. Taste has a big bitterness, nice balancing malt sweetness. Oily texture, nice orange end. Bitter finish. Good.

Saeglopur (369) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Amber, hazy body, with massive, frothy, slightly beige, stable head, that leaves a lot of lacing. Great fruity aroma of passion fruit, mango, grapefruit, lychee, strawberry, some grass. Taste with about the same aromas, some more pine and a perfectly balanced malt backbone, with biscuit and grass notes. Mouthfeel is medium, slick with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, grass, some herbs and also slight metallic/burning notes, which I don’t like that much. Overall very good! This is how a fruity, American style IPA should be. Greatly balanced and loads of complex fruit notes. Only those subtle, unclean notes in the finish keep a higher rating.
