Thanks Chuck. Pours to a hazy caramel body with a lasting creamy white head. The aroma is grapefruit and butterscotch. The flavor is grassy and grapefruity. Seems to have some nice spicyness to it. Nice textured medium-full palate. Pretty decent brew.

Hazy amber-orange body, small tan head. Orange/lemon ctrus aroma with a zippy lime zest over a milky caramel base. Pretty typical IPA aroma but it’s damn appealing. Appealing flavor, too! Lots of fleshy citrus (orange/lime) comprise the bitterness. Dry toasty caramel underneath. Delicious stuff, the hops cooperate very well.

Dirty amber/copper. Thin soapy off white head. Great lacing, attractive brew. Aroma is nice. Dry citrus, sweet grassy caramel. Some fruit and subtle fruit punch hints. Taste is very balanced and nice hops. Aroma would lead me to believe it would be fuller, but it isn’t. Its simply balanced and good.

extremly cloudy copper brown pour w/ visable carbonation and a large fluffy tan head w/ some nice lacing. Nice aroma full of hops. Lots of grass and citrus w/ a fair amount of carmel balance pices of pine. Palate is oily and very well caoted. Flavor is well pined lots of grapefruit some grass a nice bitter finish w/ a very light carmel. Good but a very dry finish.

Bottled. Hazy reddish orange with a sticky tan-coloured head. Strong piney hop aroma with hints of mango, peaches and grass. Bittersweet flavour of bloodoranges, peaches, grapefruit and grass. long bitter finish of grapefruit and grass. Another outstanding IPA from Mikkeller.

Sampled at RBSG 2006- Grand Tasting. Pours a hazy caramel color with an off white head. This is really delicious. Has a unique hop bitterness that is not run of the mill. Up front, there’s a slight organic chemical flavor, but it disappears rapidly. Pleasant tartness fills the palate.

Bottle from Secret Danish Santa. Whoever you are, TAK! Murky burnt orange with a big beige head. The mouth of the bottle was crusted up, I was taken aback for a moment. Any apprehension left with my first whiff - lovely cirtusy nose, grassy and floral notes. Nice soft mouthfeel. Flavor is sweetly fruity to start, then the hops come in, but not overwhelmingly so. Pleasant, balanced caramel/bitter finish. Very good IPA!
