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.

fantti (848) - FINLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu tulppaaniin vaalean meripihkaisena ja suht kirkkaana, isolla (n. 3 sormen) isokuplaisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa ensimmäisenä tuntuu trooppinen hedelmäisyys, loistavaa. Monipuolisessa paletissa on myös sitrusta, havua ja puumaisuutta, sekä hieman makeaan hedelmäisyyteen sekoittuvaa karamellisuutta. Maku on myös hyvä: puumainen lähtö, jonka jälkeen sitrus vie enemmän ja enemmän alaa. Ruohoisuus, joka kääntyy lähes mentolmaisuuteen, tuntuu kielen sivuilla. Suutuntuma on alkuun yllättävän kevyt, oikein odottaa, koska katkerot nappaavat vallan. Pikku hiljaa ne hivuttautuvat mukaan kokonaisuuteen kuivattaen vaikutelmaa, mutta ei tämä mikään katkeropommi ole. Hiilihapotkin hieman vähissä. Laadukas IPA, jossa monipuolista tuoksua komppaa hyvä maku, mutta olisin toivonut (vaikken mikään katkerofiili olekaan) kuivempaa ja katkerampaa yleiskuvaa.

RexTalionis (3306) - FINLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle. Unclear amber in color with a creamy off-white head. Sweet fruity, some floral, light perfumey notes and hints of toffee in aroma. Behind that lurks even some notes of cereal. Very smooth, perhaps the amount of oat is just right here. Light grassy notes with hints of slightly burnt toffee sweetness and grapefruity bitterness in taste. Very pleasant on the whole, not something that I would drink in quantities, but instead a bottle now and then would be the right solution.

Hazy dark amber, big creamy head, nice lacing. Mild citrus and excotic fruits, bit caramel, fresh, bitter. Light to medium body, fizzy, bitter, dry, long finish has grapefruit and pine. Ok, balanced, light, refreshing.
