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.

Karol (641) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 25, 2014
Bottled. Very similar to Sierra Nevada Torpedo or First Frontier ipa. Nice aroma of hops, some herbals. The taste is hoppy, dry, bitter. Refreshing. Overall a hop bomb.

Jorn69 (936) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2014
Tap @ Mikkeller & Friends 8/2-2014. Tycker den är tunn i både doft och smak. En aning humlig med en hyfsad beska.

beholder (58) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Appearance: a bit hazy light amber in colour with quite big white head that lasts long. Nice lacing. Aroma: a lot of tropical fruits, some malt and unfortunately a bit of rust and iron. Wasn’t expecting that from Mikkeller. Taste: grapefruit, mango, orange, maybe a bit of pineapple and again the rust and iron. Average to high bitterness. Good, but not great. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, (too) high carbonation. Was feeling full half the bottle down. Overall: The rust and iron in aroma and taste ruined this otherwise great beer. Probably just a bad batch, that’s all. BB: 29.10.2015 so it’s a fresh one. Don’t get me wrong, it’s good, very good, and you can actually barely taste and smell that iron and rust, but it’s there, and it’s ruining this beer for me.

Kosmokrator (485) - ITALY - FEB 9, 2014
Alla spina. Intenso color arancio con soffice cappello di schiuma bianca. Agrumata, resinosa, fruttata e luppolata, sia al naso che al palato: offre i sapori "classici" di una IPA su una base solida e strutturata con note delicate di caramello e biscotto. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, rotonda e leggermente oleosa. Buona!

jmgreenuk (4350) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2014
Tap at the Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Poured a hazy orange amber with a thin white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is light nettle hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a big hop bitter light mint palate with a long liqourice.bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Clearly takes is roots from the US!

Gaultier (333) - SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2014
@Mikkeller & Friends på tap. En helt ok IPA med lite mesig humlearom/smak. I övrigt är beskan bra och ganska långvarig.

Botella 33cl. en el Cabanon. Aroma intenso a lúpulos. Color ambar bastante turbio, espuma persistente y correcto carbonico. Sabor no excesivamente amargo al principio pero que se mantiene en la boca intensamente. Muy recomendable (06/02/2014)

stefannilssons (1462) - SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2014
Under en kväll av många bra öl, riktigt många riktigt bra öl så var detta lite av en besvikelse. Smaken var för pikant för min smak med toner av tall och grape. Slutsats; en besvikelse men ändå en okej öl.
