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.

The thing that really suprise me about this beer was the aroma. I found a little smokyness in the nose, which combined insanely well with the floral hops to make one interesting sniff. A creamy mouthfeel, nicely balanced hop/malt attack and a bit of sweetness and this is one excellent IPA. I want more!

Bottle, Aroma of flower, heavy initial bitterness that last a long time. Not really my cup of tee, but far from bad.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2006
Bottle (according to brewmaster it had only resided in the bottle for two days!). Golden brown with average off-white creamy head. Flowery and bitter aroma displaying an almost perfect balance between hops and malt. Creamy on the the palate and with flavor of dried citrus peel and more hops and malts. Finish lingers on for more than a minute. Almost perfect american pale ale.

Again I think I got the backwash of the boys here...I really should plan these parties better, big soapy frothy citrusy mouthful--the abc version-- hard to judge an appearance off of. Never really seemed to dissipate. The commerical description "fermented with an American ale yeast strain" sounds like terrorism..........

Bottle courtesy of JSquires via Papsoe. Seems to be the most known of the brewer’s IPA series. big soapy head. Grapefruit flavour. Creamy mouthfeel.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Bottle thanks to Papsoe: Copper color with a white head. Aroma was citrusy, a little floral, some light malts to it. Flavor, sweet up front with a floral and citrusy bitter finish. Lingering bitterness on the finish.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2006
Pours a murky brown with a creamy off-white head, great lace. Big hoppy aroma, passionfruit, toffee, grapefruit, very very nice. The body is a slight let down, its sweet, hoppy, warming and slightly spicy... I guess everything you would want from a big IPA. The problem for me was the shocking lack of balance with and what seemed to be a light oxidation. The finish is long and bitter.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - OCT 28, 2006
off white head, lightly cloudy dark golden color. sweetish lightly hoppy aroma, a little lemony root beer! flavor is tangy hop, a little sweetish caramel malt. bitterness is very faint, but that’s hwo I like an IPA. thanks, Madsberg!!

Bottle at RBESG 2006. A bit cloudy in both appearance and taste, not that I know what clouds taste like really, but this is probably a fair guess.
