Excellent beer is all I can say. The best ale I've had in a really long time. Fantastic aroma, smooth, great balance, nice head. Loved it in so many ways. ---Grant---

This is one of several American Pale Ales that I think are exemplary. Very nice hop bite that melts well with the malt. Could drink this all day.

Really there isn’t anything lacking in this beer. It could have more hop aroma But really? its called a pale ale so amazing. Yet high abv for a pale ale. Malty with an awesome head and appearnace. SPOT ON. Hop is not bitter it is citrus. A great beer. All in all what I want!

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2014
16 Oz tap. Pours clear amber with a frothy white head. Nice hop aroma: piney and floral. Flavor is mostly hops, lots of pine, some woodiness. Mild malt sweetness throughout, then mellow, citrusy and herby hop linger. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, tasty, nice hop character, but making in malt to balance things off.

Pint on draft. Good head on it, with a citrus heavy aroma. Tastes amazing, really citrus and hoppy with a light, clean finish.

Big citrus and pine aromas for a standard pale ale. Deep amber/dark orange color. Very drinkable. Smooth palate. Wonderful beer.

delnoche (456) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12fl oz bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint. Deep amber with ample offwhite head. Aroma is flowery hops and oddly enough, cream cheese frosting. This beer is like a creamy hops festival in my mouth. Full body, lots of carbonation. Lengthy finish of hops and alcohol. Such a good beer. Wow! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Mikkeller Stockholm 14-11-8: brödig och maltig. Smaken är ok men inget mer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

baraciisch (2015) - California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle courtesy of douce... Burnt orange in color... Aroma of citrus, caramel, toffee, light pine... Flavor is citrus hops, lots of caramel up front, lingering pine and citrus hop dryness on finish, some grapefruit, sticky hop resins... Well balanced, enjoyable... Deceivingly drier than you'd expect by looking at it... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very clear amber, light tan head that stands up. Aroma is malt balanced with citrus note. Can really taste the English pale malt structure. Very nice pale!

Fat mikkeller and friends - kopparfärgad, något grumlig. Fin maltsmak med en hint av karamell, tydlig men angenäm beska.
