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.

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.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sweet hoppy brew with a lot of fruits and caramel.

mile (3448) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty - lightly oaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty - lightly oaty and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, lots of citrus - some grapefruit hoppyness. OK dryish IPA. Could be drier with less (without) caramel. Oat also brings "mellow flavor" that not usually wanted in IPAs. Well hopped IPA anyway.

sunstoneale (7) - MOLDOVA - AUG 15, 2015 does not count
Nice aroma of pine, citrus and a bit of honey from the malt. Taste is dry and bitter from start to finish with just a bit of sweetness at the start. Nice IPA.

Beersiveknown (4009) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle at home from brewdog online
Opaque mid amber, offwhite frothy lacing with mango and pink grapefruit on nose. Full bodied, pretty pithy bitterness, light carbonation. Citrus bitterness dry pithy finish.

ABT_S54 (274) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
33cl bottle served in a teku glass. Amber pour with massive (slightly) off white head. Clean hop aroma which transcends into a crisp and citrus taste with a very hop forward palate with the malt only really balancing rather than overpowering. A slightly astringent paracetomol bitterness with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Other than these slightly picky observations a pretty good IPA

Torrefacto (954) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 5, 2015
Ámbar limpio y espuma marfil compacta. Aromas de pino, cítricos y herbáceos. Cuerpo medio-bajo, inicio maltoso y de fruta naranja breve, que pronto pasa a un intenso sabor de pino y resinas con final de amargor intenso y seco.

spacecube (1370) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
330ml bottle, pours dark gold, amber, small but lasting foamy white head. Medium caramel malt backbone, with plenty of juicy hop, citrus and pine on toast. A hefty kick of bitternes comes in and lasts for a long time. Body is medium, oily texture, light sweetness medium bitterness. Carbonation is soft. Very much as advertised and a tasty west coast style bitter piney IPA

procraste (194) - FRANCE - JUL 4, 2015
Une IPA avec des notes cidrées très délicates et discrètes ... Une fin de bouche assez astringente ... amertume marquée. Bien, mais rien de transcendant pour moi.
