2014-01-22, bottle from Mikkeller Shop, Stefansgade, Copenhagen, 8-5-8-4-15=40
Golden color, medium sized head. The aroma is not explosive, but it’s nice, citrusy and harmonious. The mouthfeel is quite dry, not weak; good flavor of malt with a cereals accent; strong bitterness, some hop resins and fruitiness; again, good but not explosive; and crispy malts would be preferred than cereal-malts.
Very good. Too expensive.
2012-05-10, draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Hazy golden to light amber color. Strong hop aroma, initially fruity, then resiny, finally showing some manure; later it has a very strong cheesy character (soft french cheese); overall not the top of elegance.
Malt and caramel flavor are very clean, therefore the drinkability is higher; very strong hopping, resiny before fruity; the final is bitter almost abrasive, strong but unbalanced, not allowing to the fruity or delicate notes of the hop to appear.
Bomb, very good, but a bit less than expected.
Sold at 40Kr (7$) for 20cl, this is a dishonest deal.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap, pours clear golden. Aroma: loads of citra, citrussy, fruity sweet, sweet orange, a lovely mix of citrus, some pineapple, mango, some sweet caramel, almost vanilla like notes, the fruityness reminds me somewhat of disco beer, some sweet grassy notes! Light spruce, damn this smells good, real clean! Taste: taste follows through, though a bit muted compared to the aroma, some orange peel, nice and dry, medium bitterness, beautiful!

this beer is world class!! I dont think that anyone could find anything bad to say about this beer. It might not be your favorite, but you will definitely agree with EVERYONE else that it is a perfectly balanced and smooth as it can be.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a deep golden amber with a near non-existant head. Nose is sweet, fruity hops - some resin notes. Beer is carbonated well. Sweet for an IPA - which mostly means it has a solid malt backbone. Good hop bitterness on the finish, but the hop presence certainly doesn’t hit you in the face - which is a nice change of pace. Really I can’t find anything wrong with this beer!

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar
Aroma is wonderful with hops, fruits, gooseberry bush and some resin. Flavour is rather hoppy with sweetish, exotic fruits, resin and some caramel. Very refreshing and good, probably the best APA Ive had.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen.
Pours a slightly hazy, copper orange colour with a lacy head. Aroma of very, very intensive Citra hops and strong fruitiness. Flavour is also very intensive; strong floral hops, citrus, caramel and lovely exotic fruitiness. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, bitter, fruity and tangy finish. Excellent. 9-4-8-4-16 4.1, 05/2012.
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Pours a golden orange colour with a small head. Nice lacing. Aroma of orange, earthiness, floral notes. Rich and strong flavour with a massive fruity hop kick, grapefruit and caramel just enough to balance the flavour. Beautiful.
