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. Decent hop aroma although some presence of DMS. Nice foam retention and lacing. Clean bitterness with creamy finish. Overall I was expecting a bit more hop character from this American style IPA from the famed Danish brewers.

This one isn’t so great. Very mild hop aroma and hop flavor, and light, sweet malt. Very dry throughout. It lacks flavor and aroma.

Mmnn. Hops. Citrus hops on the nose of this cloudy orange beer. Bitter hop body with a solid hop finish.

I definitely dig this one. Flowery hops in the aroma with a hint of pine. Sticky mouthfeel. Some pine and citrus along with a mineral bitterness in the flavor. Mikkeler wins!

eaglefan538 (3009) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Bottle. Pour was amber with some orangey hues, nice generous initial head, solid lacing. The aroma was fruity hops with some grain elements underneath. The flavor was barely ripe grapefruit and citrus rind notes, resin, all with a firm almost euro-noble super bitter hopping underneath and finishing quite strong. Melons and other similar fruits support the base flavors. A bitter little sucker, indeed, right on for the style, and indeed true to the stateside standards of such a concoction. Semi-dry finish, anything but malty strong.

TURDFERGUSON (4036) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Bottle from Sam’s. This tasted like a nice, american-style ipa. The hops were a bit muted to the caramel malt backbone. I would love to try this fresh on tap in Denmark. Another nice beer from Mikkeller.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Amber color with a light-med head. Aroma is well hopped, but a bit too malty - citrus and floral hops dominate, but too much sugary scent. Flavor is a nice citrus/floral mix with a hefty dose of bread and caramel - a bit more than I care for, but it works. Nice hoppy/bitter mouthfeel that finishes nice. Good to try, but the price is a bit rough.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2007
500ml Bottle: Floral hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and a little cream. Poured amber in color with a medium to large off-white head that lasted throughout. Very good lacing. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is medium bitter. Tastes of hops, caramel, malts, dough, and a little resin. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy/malty finish tastes a bit salty.

This is a tasty critter which has a nice reddish tint and some chewy hops but its a bit unbalanced with not much of a malty backbone to catch the strong bitter hops. The mouthfeel has a creamy texture but the flavor is a bit too perfume-like for me even though I typically enjoy bitter complex beers (aka Ruination, Dreadnaught, etc.). I do have to say this beats most of the IPAs on the market as far as style and flavor.
