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.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Upon the pour from the 500ml bottle, it appears a slightly hazy amber with a two-fingered creamy white head that fades leaving a complete blanket of lace upon the glass. Nose has a delicious hop floral aroma, followed quickly by the sweet malt, crisp and clean, mouthwatering. Start has a delectable malt presence, hop bitter at the back, somewhat sweet with the top moderate in feel. Finish has a persistent acidity, the hops powerful and spicy, aftertaste is bone dry and the hops stick to the palate, quite a refreshing beer.

Trolleo (1276) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 4, 2016

rayaron (1343) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUL 30, 2016
Can sample at a Mikkeller tasting at Beer and Beyond, Tel Aviv. Slightly hazy golden-orange with beige head. The aroma has notes of citrus (orange, mandarin) and some graininess. Bitter flavor with notes of citrus (orange), some caramel and grains, grassy, creamy, a bit alcoholic, dry. Medium-bodied.

Alengrin (4420) - BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2016
From a can at the Struise shop in Bruges. Lacing, snow white, irregular, moussy head, cloudy amber robe with red-brownish hue. Aroma of tangerine, pink grapefruit, biscuit, hemp, pine resin, candied mango, minerals, stale sweat, mandarins. Crisp fruity onset, mango, mandarin and passion fruit impressions, ’fleshy’ and juicy with medium amount of carbonation just fit for the style, caramelly and biscuity malt sweetness in the middle, long hoppy finish providing a lot of retronasal citrus, mango and tropical flower aromas as well as drying, resinous but altogether soft bitterness. Nice, juicy, aromatic example of the style.

puren (671) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Prezentacja:
opalizujące, bursztynowe, bardzo obfita piana opada do pierzyny, ładnie zdobi szkło;
Aromat:
delikatny - owoce tropikalne, karmel, żywica;
Odczucie:
ciało niskie, średnio nasycone, goryczkowy finisz;
Smak:
karmel, cytrusy, żywica, delikatny alkohol, niska bardzo długa grejpfrutowo-alkoholowa goryczka;
Ogólnie:
piwo na pół gwizdka, aromat delikatny, smak też, jest bardzo pijalne, ale to raczej przez jego nijakość.
