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.

500ml from Sam’s, Durham. A very fine tribute beer, full and rich body, with a lovely golden hue and lustrous head. The hops are floral and not too aggressive, with some generous malting in the backing. Maybe not the most distinctive IPA out there, but very fine and easy drinking.

Great, great beer. Bottled at Olbarren. A little pricey though. Definitley a beer for hop lovers. True IPA with lots of flavor, complex to decribe as I am new to this. Well worth the DKK 70. If you love IPA’s, this is your beer.

badgerben (4720) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Copper color with a medium head. Nice citrusy and pine aroma. Dry malt taste. Definitely hoppy, but not screaming with hops and certainly a bit on the mild side for bitterness. More hop taste than punishing alpha acid. Some citrus on the finish.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle. Aroma was predominately grassy hops. Some pine and citrus. Wisps of malt hiding in the background. Pours rich copper with a big, sticky white head. Flavor profile was initially quite dry. Lots of grassy hops, but not bracingly hoppy. Some hay. Wildflowers. A hint of sweet malt. Medium to full bodied. Good carbonation.

Guerde (1259) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2007
(bottle thanks olso2116) Pours copper with an off-white head. Aroma initially smells like a fruit salad, but as the beer warms the hops dominate and are very citrusy. The flavor is a slight malt presence which is quickly washed away with a very bitter grapefruit peel hop finish that lasts quite awhile.

DocLock (8947) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Deep copper pour with off-white head. Aroma of wet hops, caramel malt, some spicy florals and a hefty black and Bell pepper aroma. The palate is hoppy, medium heft, with well balanced malt and hops, giving a lot of hop flavor, plus a lot of mid-palate peppery notes, and some finishing floral notes. Stays very hoppy throughout. Reminds me of a Sly Fox varietal quite a bit.

sthlm (1268) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
[Bottle] Pours reddish amber with a small white head. Very strong citrusy hops and some nice malt. Taste is citrus up front, then malt, and then a quite bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel. Aside from the aroma being really nice, nothing really set this beer apart. I would drink it again, but only if it was cheaper here.

TheEpeeist (3661) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2007
16.9 oz bottle. Clear orange with a generous bone head. Pineapple, citrus and peppery dough. Bitter, sour apple tingles on the tongue. Orange malts and some grapefruit juice. Light drying with pith and crabapple. Well made but not so distinctive.

hopdog (10472) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2007
1pt .9 oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of floral hoppiness, citrus, pine, and some sweet malts. Tastes of pine, citrus, light caramel, and a little fruity. Alcohol content hidden. Not overly bitter with a lighter malt balance.
