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's rating

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.

dnicolaescu (1322) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 2, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy amber-red, light beige head. Tropical fruit and piney aroma, appaya, dome dank. The malts are really subdued. The taste is similar - tropical fruit, mellow citrus pith bitterness. The malts are somewhere around - not letting the beer feel dry. Very well done.

Thick head with dark amber body. Malty nose with citrus hops coming through. Well balanced with subtle caramel notes & the hops providing an orange & piney flavour (Simcoe?). An excellent emulation of a fruity US IPA. Rated by BrewTom

Holmen1 (3658) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2015
Fra flaske på Mi2, Cardinal aug-15: uklar kobbergylden med højt, hvitt skum som varer. Mild og innsmigrende humleduft, solmodne fersken og mango pluss citrus. Karamellmalten holder det hele på plass. Smooth munnfylde og ettersmak, meget lettdrikkelig. Dog ikke helt superfrisk, synes der sniker seg inn noen halvvisne sommerblomster.

tandembrauer (618) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy amber with off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine needles, a little soap. Tastes bitter, but also quite fruity-sweet, medium bodied. Bitter finish. A decent IPA.

Holmen2 (1889) - NORWAY - AUG 31, 2015
Shared bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 31.08.15. Hazy, pale orange. Huge, foamy and uneven off-white head. Aroma of bitter grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits, pine and succade. Bitter taste of citrus, papaya and dried fruits, balanced with malt, sugar and caramel.

martjoobolut (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
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 (3459) - 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 (4011) - 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 (275) - 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
