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.

muzzlehatch (4459) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #6. 500 ml bottle from sum likker stoer in Vermont, sampled on Nov 25 2008 in a now-departed or lost Allagash glass (sniff) while reading the 5th Harry Potter book on my porch in the cold. A massive, creamy - whipped cream, almost - head lasts and lasts, leaving fine irregular lacing atop a lightly oily, translucent amber/brass body... a bright, ripe-fruity aroma, apples and cherries amidst resinous hops, perhaps a bit too sugary-caramelly but still solid...sweet, lightly oxidized body, a bit too syrupy and full for my taste but very drinkable and strong-flavored, a bit of cigarette ash near the finish is surprisingly not unpleasing, hop oiliness dominates at the end but the final touch of bitterness is subdued...perhaps slightly undercarbonated given the oiliness; I feel that perhaps this bottle was just a bit older than it should have been. Solid despite the faults in any case.

Bottle. Orange colour. Aroma of citrus, peach and malt. Nice taste of candi, peach, malt, grassy bitter and caramel. Strange sweet ipa.

Echon (327) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2016
Dark amber. Rich and spicy hop profile, which complements the malty caramel very well. Moderately sweet taste, somewhat pungent (chinook’s signature), and quite bitter. Overall, a very good IPA. It has the right malt character and sweetness to balance the hops, and it much better than the recent fruity-and-no-bitterness trend.

ClubGonzo (5358) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2016
Can. Pours a slightly hazy light amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is rose water, peaches, apricot, soapy herbs and hints of caramel, pine and resin. Taste is pine, caramel, red fruits, resin and hints of bitter herbs, red berries and grapefruits. 6 Medium body and carbonation. A decent, pretty straight-forward American IPA from Mikkeller, with no big surprises.

Csekito92 (6) - Debrecen, HUNGARY - JUN 16, 2016 does not count
330 ml bottle ordered from Csakajosor. Served straight from the fridge in a 0,5 l IPA glass. Look: Murky amber, deep orange colour, nice head with decent retention, lacing is fine Smell: notes of resin, pine, orange, interesting malt character in the background Taste: does follow the smell in my opinion, balanced with a weird malt sweetness, but it is okay Feel: medium body, sweet aftertaste accompanied by a bitterness boom, i like this balance but it is only my point, active carbonation Overall: it is worth trying, i am keen on this experimental approach of Mikkeller. I will try the single hop batches in order to be able to improve my hop detection. Nice brew.

330ml can from Brewdog shop. Big off white head, nice lacing. Slightly hazy amber body. Nose is pine, caramel, orange. Flavour is citrus, caramel, metallic, grass, pine, good bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation, mouthfeel is fairly chewy and sticky. The bitterness really lingers, a proper US style IPA.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4327) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 4, 2016
Stateside ipa pint at the Mikkeller pop in Kyoto. The opaque reddish brown has a big fruity-floral aroma of bitting caramel and herbs. The taste is herbal spicing butting heads with fruits.

KyotoLefty (9021) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 3, 2016
Tap at Before 9. Deep brown-orange, cloudy, high head. Nose of caramel, pine, oranges, peaches. Lots of caramunich coming through. Very old school, piny caramel. Nice enough though.
