COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Muddy amber with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aromas has caramel, sweetness, maltiness, red apples, piney, light strawberries. Low carbonation, slight bit of liveliness. Good dryness. Flavour is quite sweet, some dryness, piney en masse, caramel, a hint of strawberries, fairly vinious. Long, lingering dryness. A very good IIPA, but it does feel a tad simple.
