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.

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, - JUN 6, 2006
Bottle.- Hazy orange/brown colour. Very potent hoppy nose. The taste is, offcourse very hoppy,- fruity, piny, bitter notes. I think this beer is good, but not as good as people are raving about, actually a bit dissapointing, but when a "brewery" has been so heavily hyped as Mikkeller have, it is obviously impossible always to live up to the expectations set by a group of, sometimes, pretentious beernerds.

Vignale (2409) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2015
Flaska från Mikkeller & Friends. En västkust-IPA med fräsch humle med mest tallskott, aningen grape och en grön kaffeton som förvånar mig lite. Rejäl kropp, smaken är söt karamellig, humlen saknar lite fruktighet men är annars riktigt maffig, tallskott, grape- och resinbeska. Bra men inte riktigt värd toppbetyg.

3/III/15 - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ home - BB: 19/XI/16 (2015-254) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Little cloudy orange beer, creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: fruity, sweet, resinous, some overripe fruits, sweet malts. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: yes! Nice stuff... Fruity start, yet pretty bitter, citrus, pineapple, bit sourish. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, dry, piny, bit resinous, little funky almost.

zenkis (650) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle
pours ambery, clear with huge frothy top due to high carbo level, light lasing. Aroma- intense, pleasant combo of resiny, citrus and flowery notes. Taste- light sweet with good bitternesss level throughout, start and finish is ok, maybe could be bitter in the middle. Palate- medium bodied, juicy texture with a little too high carbonation for drinkability to remain perfect. But overall was very pleasant.

Malty body, mucky colour body, absolutely smashing if you like heavy ipas instead of flowery, aromatic ones

Pedrens (159) - SPAIN - FEB 4, 2015
Botella...ambar oscuro con ciertos tonos dorados. Espuma blanca algo amarillenta. Aroma donde domina el luplulo y muy de fondo la malta...olores frutales y algo resinados....ciruelas verdes? En boca dulzor medio y amargor medio donde tantos los lupulos como la malta tiene presencia. Textura algo cremosa para ser una IPA, carbonatacion media. Final afrutado y algo maltoso no demasiado amargo...muy equilibrada. buena IPA!
