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.

stouby (4109) - Holbæk, DENMARK - APR 16, 2007

caesar (5828) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2007
skortila poured a very cloudy wannabe-orange beige color with a big frothy off-white head. Cloudy strokes of yeast swirled down to the bottom of the glass, a Dutch sky was nothing compared to this view. Aroma of cascade hop, slightly fruity and yeasty (what a surprise). Very soft, fruity and bit yeasty taste, but not very bitter as most other IPAs I’ve had. Soft bitter palate. Nice balance. I like this one very much!

skortila (4853) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2007
Aroma is floral, hoppy and fruity. Cloudy, brown-orange coloured with an off-white, medium head. Taste is just moderate bitter, yeasty, sweet and fruity (grapefruits). Very smooth palate for the style. Enjoyable.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2007
A sensational looking beer, cloudy amber with a big pillowy head that left a delicate lacing. Super strength floral hop aroma with pine and a bit of citrus. Alcohol is a bit obvious in the aroma, along with a caramelly malt base. A nice even bitterness in the flavour which is quite lasting. Actually, it lingers for a bloody long time at the back of the tongue. While in the mouth it’s quite nice, but the bitterness really sticks out like dogs balls after swallowing. A decent IPA, but a touch over the top (thanks to highlandlad for sharing)

Plovmand (7056) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle. Light Amber colour. Very hoppy aroma with notes of sweet malt. Beautilful balanced hoppy flavor. Very nice IPA.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2007
(Bottled) Opaque dark orange-amber with a small, bubbly head. Very perfumy, rosemary-lavendery aroma with lots of aromatic-flowery hops. Sweetish-malty, quite bitter, but mostly aromatic-perfumy-hoppy flavor with some grassiness, too. Yeast smoothens the flavor, but it remains interesting. Medium to full-bodied, smooth-creamy and quite low-carbonated palate. A very balanced and enjoyable IPA. Pretty much like Nogne O IPA, but smoother.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle. A better example of American IPA than the vast majority of American IPA’s! Orange color. Big time aroma and taste, full of hops. Very nice IPA.

LinusStick (3018) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Acuired via my first international trade-Thanks Maria-A Dark Lord is coming! Pour was a dark orange/light brown with no head. Aroma was floral/citrus hops. Taste was non-carbonated-don’t think this beer should be like this. Taste was floral and earthy hops with some malt in the background. Nice and bitter aftertaste but could use some carbonation.
