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.

Bottle. Pours a clear, deep gold color. Medium sized white head. Strong aroma of grapefruit. Beer is nice and thck. Really big mouthfeel. Bitter piney hops dominate the palate with subtle caramel undertones. Smooth finish with the bitterness lingering in the back of the mouth for quite some time. Really refreshing beer from the Danes!

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Nice amber color with 1 finger of head, good lacing. Nice moderate hoppy aroma and flavor. Bitterness seems well balanced although it does linger a little too strong. Very enjoyable.

hapjydeuce (996) - Carlsbad, California, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Bottled, pours a clean and bold golden color with a half-inch off white head that dissipates into fine film. The aroma is mostly dominated by the sweetness from the malts, with the amarillo hops there as well. Flavor is less so with the sweetness and more so with the hops. Nicely balanced blend of the green stuff that leaves a hefty bite on the palate for minutes. Great mouthfeel to this beer, very crisp with lots of carbonation. Highly enjoyable, Im seriously impressed with the Danish take on an American-style IPA.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Slightly hazy gold, pillow white head with wonderful lacing. Nose is pine, resin and grapefruit. Some nice lightly toasted malt in there as well. Flavor is piney hops, a bit of rind, something I can only describe as bitter caramel. A hint of tea in the finish. A bit much on the body - leans towards being too heavy.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2007
This was a really nice IPA. Golden color with a thin white head. Very hoppy as it should be but balance. Well worth it.

ChainGangGuy (4755) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Appearance: Pours a clear, copper body with a lush, foamy white head. Lightly bubbly. Smell: Pleasantly perfumy aroma of citrus fruits and pine with a hint of spice and biscuity malts in the background. Taste: At the start there’s a flash of biscuit malts with a brief, subtle caramel sweetness. Then, you get a bright citric, fruity blast and a taste of resinous pine. Finishes dry with a light, lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Relatively smooth mouthfeel. Drinkability: One of the best non-American American IPAs I’ve had, and one that could give many domestic IPAs a run for their money.

Bottle courtesy of Degarth. Thanks again, Joe. Golden orange body with a huge, pillowy and fluffy beige head. Looks like suds from a bubble bath. Nose is tremendous and huge, full of grapefruits, lemons, spicy hops, pine, grass and caramel malts. A pleasure to smell for a while and pick out new things each time. Flavor doesn’t disappoint, brings all of the promised notes and with force. Very balanced in flavor, huge amounts of hop spice and citrus, but a wonderful toffee/caramel backing to really bring everything together. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Has a nice, style appropriate slick mouthfeel. Drinks very easily. Finish is medium length, bitter and full of citrus notes. A very "juicy" IPA. I really can’t find anything terribly wrong with this beer at all, and might have underrated it some. One of my favorite IPA’s in a while.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 15, 2007
500 ml bottle, thanks to Drewbeerme. Pours clear medium amber with a small whitish head and a nice thick stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Nice IPA aroma, caramel and hints of marshmallow in the malts, crisp, fresh floral and citrus hops that become more dusty and pungent as they warm. Mellow biscuity and caramel malt character is complemented by bright but reasonable hops floral, spruce, citrus peel and a somewhat ashy-astringent finish and aftertaste. Medium body and gentle carbonation. Nice example of an IPA by our Danish friends.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Pour a hazy reddish orange hue with a diminishing off-white frothy head. Good lacing on my tulip glass. Pine aroma with hints of caramel. Lots of hops with a caramel malty finish. Dry medium body with soft carbonation. Nice IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2009 Bottle. Orange color with fluffy off-white head. Aroma is bittersweet with notes of citrus fruits, sweet malt, orange-peel, caramel, flowers and some light salmiak notes.The taste is also bitter and sweet: grape, pine, caramel, orange-peel, sweet fruit, paracetamol?, liqourice and a bit of alcohol. The bitterness is a bit sharp and harsh. Re-tested 090314
