ARH (293) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pleasing aromas of citrus rind, lemongrass, peaches, and toasted caramel are picked up from the start. After it settles a bit, more of a fresh baked bread crust and tangerine comes through, and even later, the bread crust turns more towards a blackened pizza crust. It pours a slightly hazy copper-orange color with a creamy white head that retains well; it leaves a thick puffy ring with a creamy island and a decent, messy lace along the glass. Great balance between medium high levels of sweet and bitter. The texture is creamy on the palate with a body towards the higher end of medium. The carbonation is a touch effervescent or fizzy, but overall, soft. There’s a very pronounced grapefruit tartness up front, but it mellows quickly after the first few sips. It finishes with a zesty combination of lemongrass, caramel, and stonefruit. The aftertaste is primarily sweet, overripe tangerines and it’s peel with a tart grapefruit bitter lingering in the mouth. Overall very refreshing, straddles the line between IPA and APA.

12 oz bottle. Thanks Tim! The pour is a clear amberish gold with a decent white head and some phenomenal lacing. The aroma is huge on a mild hoppiness and a great piney resin and beautifully done hop profile. The flavor is huge on the hops and delightful on the resin with a great light skunkiness. The mouth feel is just great. There is a light body and a medium carbonation and a lingering piney bitter hoppy aftertaste. Pretty damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BiereLuc (855) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Bière dorée, légèrement voilée, vêtue d’une mousse blanche modérée. Le nez est explosif et tropical. Des agrumes et des ananas percent ici et là. En bouche, on confirme le miracle – un jus de fruit dangereusement désaltérant. Le Citra fait son oeuvre, mais un profil herbacé très dominant vient offrir un équilibre houblonné redoutable. En finale, quelque chose de poivré demeure avec une touche qui rappelle le gingembre. Un délice du début à la fin. En plus, j’ai été obligé de la partager... Gneh!

On tap at Mikkeller Viktoriagade. Dominated by tropical fruits, mango, pineapple and grape. With some grass, pine and herbs. This is one excellent beer. Probably the best APA i’ve had.

kathouse (916) - Nevada, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Nice amber with a foamy white head. Lots of mango and tropical fruit on the nose. Malty sweet, light caramel, and citrus hop flavors blend well together. Listed as a pale ale but more suited to the IPA category. Dry, fruity, and somewhat bitter finish.

Leuchtend Orange im Glas, cremiger Schaum, blumig Citrus in der Nase, Malz weniger süß als die Farbe vermuten lässt, gute Hopfenbittere. Schönes Pale Ale

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle from Mikkeller Shop. Pours a slightly hazy light amber body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, lemon zest, mild peaches, pine, nettles and hints of tomato plant, lime and caramel. Taste is apple cores, citric peel, grapefruit, tomato plant/herb-like grassiness and hints of straw and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Very nice, and probably even better fresh (mine was a bit older than that).
