COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year’s offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

Vaiz (3335) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle @ ZeeBra Extreme Beer Festival 2013. Almost clear orange pour. Aroma is fruity alcoholic, resin, pine. Flavor is sweet bitter, intense thick body, well hopped, slightly alcoholic. Huge brew which is almost an IIPA.

Vilken jävla höjdaröl, fy sjuttsingen vad bra den här ölen var. Aromen var att döda för och smaken följde upp på ett riktigt bra sätt med mycket smak av fruktighat och lite jäst. Balansen var fulländad precis som upplevelsen.

dEnk (3781) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle @ ZeeBra. Hold it, this is no barleywine. This is an insane double ipa! Aroma has big big hops, fruity and dry, some caramel and biscuity notes. Flavour has even more hops, subtle malt note to compensate. Awesome beer.

From notes. On tap at brewpub when fresh. Holy s*** is this a barleywine? Hopped to the moon and back. Like everything three floyds does this is hoppy but this is at a new level. If you didnt tell me id say double ipa. The only difference is that this does have a thick body on it. Curious to see what happens with some age after the hops fade.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2013
UPDATED: APR 22, 2013 Bottle... Lightly-hazed orange ale with a tiny, creamy, white head. The fruity aroma wafts a wonderful blend of pink grapefruit and sugar cookie. Full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Nice, sturdy malt backbone here. The flavor leans sweet - sugar cookie and toffee. Citrus rind bitterness rides a good shotgun, but is strapped in tight and isn’t allowed to bark instructions or touch the steering wheel. Finishes mostly sweet with some citrusy, rindy hop-love provided by old, stale lupulin. This probably had a whole lot more kick about eight months ago. Still a very nice brew. Never been a big fan of over-the-top bitterness anyway.

PotjeBier (1651) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2013
Bottle, share @ Beer Temple with Countbeer, IluvatarMilan, Kermis and 2 others. Hazy orange color. Little to no head. Aroma’s from the glass: pine/resin, citrus, tropical fruit. Retronasal there’s also some sweetness & skunk. Flavor is light sweet/caramel, with a sourish bitterness. Alcoholfeel is rather strong, body is medium. Finishes dry, strongly hoppy, bitter. As with the European version I’d have to conclude this is a DIPA rather than a BW.

Countbeer (4391) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2013
Bottle @ Beertemple with Iluvatarmilan, Potjebier, Kermis an two other fella’s. No head just a thin half open lacing on top of a cloudy yellow orange colored beer. Aromas of fruit, peach, wood, light chalk, spices, pine, light reain, crisp, some grains and lght herbal. Flavours of cream, wheat, grains, hops, yeast, fruit, peach, apricot, mango, light bitter. Smooth! Crisp and tasty! Aftertaste of fruity malts, light bitter spicy and some creamy fruits. Low carbo, silky mouthfeel, full body and an oily texture. Lovely beer!

Pyrmir (3322) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of herbal, oily hops, sweet malts, citrus peel, spice and tropical fruits. The flavor is the same but sharper and less oily. Reminds me more of a DIPA that has been in the cellar for some time.
