Cloudy amber color; small creamy head. Having lost all the freshness, it’s still a good beer with fudge aroma and toffee flavor, good body and mouthfeel, strong bitterness, some hop oils and hop resins, light liquorice too in the end, also salty, and no unpleasant trait, even after a few years.

Hazy copper color, generous head, thick. Powerful yet balanced hop aroma, fruity, creamy and a bit resiny. Very good toffee flavor, even if drier than I would like, with a powerful hopping. The bitterness is a crescendo, from the beginning where it balances the toffee, till the end where it reigns, with good hop oils and some resins, living within a dry mouthfeel. The bitterness in the long run brings to mind some roasted nuts. Excellent.

Copper color. Maybe also because of the disappointment today with other beers, I have to acknoledge that this beer is very well brewed. Nice hop aroma (earthy, fruity and resiny); good dry caramel flavor and strong hopping; and let’s use good hops!

Cloudy amber color. Deep aroma, hoppy, fruity, resiny. Medium body strength, full malt flavor, extremely bitter, resiny. Will be even better with some aging, but it’s so nice to taste it fresh from the keg..

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Found a bottle at Beer Paradise (Holstebroe) and glad i found it. My favourite IPA so far. Ruby amber color. Big foamy head. Citric aromas and taste, hops and caramel. Extremely well balanced. Very very nice. I wish i could find Mikkeller beer in Greece.

Amarillo at its strongest. The strong hoppy taste makes not this beer for the fainthearted. It is almost like drinking a gewürztraminer whitewine from Alsace. Of course with cheese ex. gorgonzola!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lots of aroma. Spruce, coffee, chocolate, citrus and alcohol. It is like entering a tea store. Very nice aroma. Tastes of coffee, tea store, aroma hops, and a lot of tobacco. The aftertaste is insanely hopped (although, not as Ølfabrikken Rug IPA, as I can recall) and the powerfully tea/coffee/tobacco tries to catch up the ever lasting hops. My "low" overall points is for the fact that I think this beer becomes a little too acrid at last. It would be the ultimate IPA if the tobacco was less obvious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2009 RBESG 2006 Grand Tasting. Cloudy orange-brown colour. Lovely hoppy aroma (chinook, cascade and amarillo). Flavour is also hoppy, on a relatively sweet (too sweet?) malty base.
Rerate 500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger: The flavour is not too sweet. Fruitiness first (oranges, grapefruit), then a distinct and sharp bitterness lasting through the finish and long aftertaste, notes of pine and resin. I’m upping it a few points.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is flowey hops. Flavour is flowry hops along with caramel and malts. Typical US brew. Well done by the Danes.
