Bottle from Mogwai Bar. Smell has hops and some fruits. Pours amber with a small white head. Taste is a bit bitter with some ginger and some hops. Palate is easy with some strayness. Overall a beer just above decent, but it do hold some nice qualities.

Flaska på Beer ditch. En besvikelse. Saknar det man förväntar sig mest, humle och brett. Istället en ganska medelmåttig malttung IIPA med viss citrusfruktighet och caramellsötma. Helt okej men hade förväntat mig mer.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Imperial IPA hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo and Centennial and distinguishing itself from its predecessor (Overall IIPA) by the fact that it’s refermented with Brett - hence the name, a clear reference to Orval. Yellowish white, sticky, stable head, beautifully warm orange blonde colour, light hazy. Very assertive and powerful aroma of grapefruit, orange zest, lime, jute, leather, triple sec, pepper, amaretto, mango, ginger, cloves, wodka and pineapple. Very complex taste from the first sip, exotic fruit sweetness, lively spiciness, soft and smooth mouthfeel, mellow caramelly malts, all drenched in a tongue-stripping, herbal, peppery and citrussy hop bitterness, stretching very long into the finish along with Brett fruitiness and subtle funkiness as well as dry, warming alcohol, but not in an astringent way. This is an absolute masterpiece from Mikkeller - once again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Lots of simcoe. Some aroma similar to ovral, soapy, very stingy resiny aroma. Taste is grassy with citrus and orange. Quite balanced, not sour whatsoever. Refreshing, low bitterness with a decent pilsner malt background.
