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.

Good IPA. I love the bubbly copper color and foamy head. The beer has a nice lively mouthfeel. The nose is caramel and bright hops. The taste is balanced and refreshing--not too bitter or sweet.

Fashawn (492) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 21, 2015
Aroma is loaded by caramel and followed by citrus hoppiness, maybe an undertones of green, dunk, bitterness. Not a great aroma but reaspnably Clean. Caramel maybe overpowering the test, but that’s it. Deep amber with a Lovely dark white head, persistent. Aroma is what you can aspect Afther the nose : sweet caramel, a little Kick by hop, some citrus notes. Maybe is a fresh beer, not so powerfull but Clean. It’s perfectly balanced by malt sweetness and little hop bitterness, but maybe you can expected other hop notes. Orange zest and tangerine is present, for sue, but the finish is dry. Extremely dry, with an average carbonation. Thin mouthfeel, light to medium body. Good.

Ippopodio (43) - ITALY - NOV 19, 2015
Di colore ambrato scarico con una buona schiuma bianchissima e persistente, offre al naso il meglio di sé con profumo di agrumi e note di erba fresca. Al palato risulta esile e beverina con un sottile fondo di malto che bilancia la forza dei luppoli. Il bouquet ed il finale Mediamente secco sono il risultato del perfetto equilibrio tra malti pilsner, monaco e caramello con i tipici luppoli americani.

Panzerfaust (678) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 15, 2015
330 ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours an opaque and cloudy tawny color with a medium to big off-white head that diminishes slowly leaving a thin lingering film. Aroma is intensely hoppy, citrusy and pungent. Dominant notes include lime, lemon zest, clean fresh herbs, lemongrass and some peppermint. Nice, it clears your sinuses with a beautiful fragrance. It’s just a bit simple... straight-forward. Taste is quite bitter, but not extreme. Citrusy flavors abound giving nice, refreshing astringency. Almost zero sweetness but I can perceive some malty notes combining with the hops to create hints of pear and orange flavors. Very assertive! The finish and aftertaste are surprisingly mild, though. Medium body, smooth and oily texture. Medium to high, fizzy, carbonation. Sessionable, highly drinkable and very refreshing India Pale Ale.

Draught. Pours a dark hazy brownish orange with a lasting dense foamy off white head. Aroma of oranges, musky, perfume, caramel. Taste is of oranges, grapefruit, citrus, biscuits, bubblegum. Heavy slick oily mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation.

UXO (999) - CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and moderate patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, caramel, tropical fruit, dank and earthy. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Nice. Well-balanced, with lots of starts-with-C hop character trading off against the smooth caramel of the malt base. Despite the high IBU, the bitterness never overwhelms, yet the malt stays where it should be, supporting rather than taking centre stage. I still can’t figure out, though, what black magic Mikkeller wields, to have a two year shelf life for a highly hopped A/IPA - I dunno whether I’m impressed or disturbed. Maybe both? (16/20)

Pours a cloudy copper with a large off-white active head that leaves an attractive lacing on the glass. Aroma is big on caramel with ripened mango and slight cream/butter. Taste is mostly citrus with a nice balancing backbone of ripened pineapple and caramel with a slight bitter hoppy finish.
