Nice foamy head off white. Pours hazy amber and has loads of flowery hops in the aroma. Ok taste - its an IPA but a bit sweeter. Everything up to the taste was good.

Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa do lekko pomarańczowej, zamglona. Piana w kolorze przybrudzonej bieli, średniej wielkości, drobno pęcherzykowa i umiarkowanie trwała. Aromat: początkowo dominują chmiele amerykańskie (głównie cytrusy). Po tego wyraźna słodowość i słodycz oraz lekka estrowość w postaci landrynek. Po chwili zauważalna staje się również nuta alkoholowa. Bardzo przyjemny, ale niezbyt złożony. Smak: intensywnie słodowy, słodki z akcentem amerykańskich chmieli i zauważalną owocowością. Do tego lekki akcent gryki. Goryczka umiarkowana, do wysokiej, raczej delikatna z dość krótkim finiszem złagodzonym przez słodowość. Balans dobrze zrównoważony. Ogólnie zdecydowanie pełne, słodkie, umiarkowanie nasycone dwutlenkiem węgla, gęste i lepkie. Alkoholowość umiarkowana. Kolejne piwo z Mikkellera, tym razem w kooperacji z amerykańskim browarem Three Floyds. Jest to amerykańskie barley wine, które jednak zdecydowanie przypomina imperialną IPA. Przyznam, że gdybym nie wiedział co to za piwo miałbym pewne problemy z przyporządkowaniem go do stylu. Różni je bowiem w zasadzie jedynie niższy poziom goryczki. Ogólnie jest przyjemne w odbiorze, jednak chyba nie warte swojej ceny. IIPA smakujące podobnie można bowiem kupić znacznie taniej.

Smells of tropical fruit. Taste is sweet and tropical fruit; honey and sweet maltiness. Had this fairly fresh and it reminded me of a more bitter DFH 90 IPA

[5714-20130819] Bottle. Fragrant dried fruit malt aroma. Hazy, dark orange amber body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Sweet fruity malt flavour and bitter hoppy finish. Full body. Delicious, I like how the barleywine is cut a little with the wheat. (8/4/8/4/17) 4.1

"Not sure of the age on this buckwheat wine. Hop bitterness is there but the flavor seems weird. Really nice malty whaety spicy backbone. Hops are rather dull, but then open up a little eventually to provide a pleasant fruitiness. Not as good as I was hoping, but I’d try a fresh one again in a heartbeat."

750ml bottle. Hazy, rose hip tea red glimmering, dark amber colour with huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige head. Fruity hoppy aroma has notes of mandarine, orange, zesty orange notes. Taste is moderately sweet malty, toffee notes, bitter hoppy counterweight, hints of orange, mandarine, orange zest. Very soft palate, biting bitter hoppy and slightly burning alcoholic finish.
