Not the best Mikkeller hoppy ale I have tasted, still very good one! Well balanced, fruits give a nice unique character. My bottle was a bit too old, I think there have been even more enjoyable hoppy bitterness earlier.

Dette var en nydelig øl! Fruktig og klar lukt, tydelig mango og pasjonsfrukt lukt, men ikke for mye. Den smaker også frukt, men heller ikke her for mye. Veldig balansert på alle mulige måter.

Bottle from Proof. Amber pour with a fluffy white head. Very floral, herbal aroma with a hint of citrus and a slight malt sweetness. Very nice light body with herbal, and floral hoppiness. Light malt flavor with a silky body and bitter finish. Pretty damn tasty if you ask me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared thanks to Tim and Rachel at Proof happy hour! Sparse notes, but hazy yellow pour with bubbly white head. Aroma is bready grain, fruitiness of the hops is still there but you can tell it’s fallen off. Taste follows, no real hint of the booze, which was labeled as 8% on the bottle. Nothing great, but pretty nice.

Pours deep amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is beautiful hops with some pineapple and mango nuances. Taste is citrusy and tropical in a balanced way then transforming into a mellow lightly sweetened malty bitterness. At the very end you get that pineapple-mango flavor again. For such an easy APA, the palate is kinda dramatic. Impressive!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from the Drink Shop in Tallinn, hazy amber colour with a small white head, plenty of passion fruit on the nose. More passion fruit with mango, hay and citrusy hops on the tongue and light sour with some bitterness taste, though fairly balanced. Lively carbonation, medium body, bitter aftertaste with some sourness. Quite a peculiar one, surprisingly I actually liked it which is very rare with fruit beers.
