UPDATED: MAY 16, 2022 Can. The Mosaic and Citra hops rush right into the sinuses -- not a hop bomb but certainly strong. Very cloudy apple juice color. Flavors are quite 'juicy' and sticky, full of citrus with Mosaic streaming down the middle. Very pleasant but perhaps not deserving of all the high ratings, IMHO. The names of this company's beer are quite macho, yeah? BeerdedDave (4138) - Beckley, West Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2021

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2021 Can says 7.1% ABV. Luminous cloudy orange with a loose cm of white head. Coiled citrus peel aroma with softer lemon pudding, herb and mango notes behind. Leanish with crackers and hay behind a melange of fruit (mainly citrus, but given some dimension by herbs and tropical notes) before a dry and medium to highly bitter finish with just a tickle of astringency. Really good. djd07 (26932) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2021 Can at DLD. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus and pine. Medium body, juicy, tropical fruit, grass, pine, nice bitterness, very good. williamstome (3695) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2021 Hazy creamsicle pour, small white head. Light floral aroma. Flavor is floral with grass and tropical fruit.

Medium hazy, drab, copper-tinted brass with a small white head that fizzles to nothing quickly.
A touch of scallion in the nose almost adds complexity rather than being problematic. Earthy and vegetal notes balance the pineapple, mango, guava and melon. Rich maltiness seems full of honey and quite big for 7.1%. At 7 weeks old, its just so nicely homogeneous and soft that it really can do no wrong. I like their yeast; there's no bubble gum or any other weird stuff. Kind of a Trillium-like, understated mineral.
Soft, supple, malty and well-attenuated though a touch on the sweet side with tons of layers of honey. Juicy pineapple, passion fruit and light pine and grapefruit never show too much bitterness, but do balance the malt sweetness aptly. Tight carbonation rounds out the texture and there's no alcohol or flaw. This is one of the better 'older' IPAs I've had in a while. They really do either go WAY downhill or just become so balanced and sublime. This one, fortunately, is the latter.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2021 Lemongrass and cracker nose. Cloudy golden, medium billowy head, nice retention. Pineapple and grapefruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation, mild bitterness. DraftDodger (6150) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2021 Copenhagen 11/1 2021. 47,3 vcl can from Mikkeller web-shop. Silver can with some sketchy drawings of machines and tools to underline that this is indeed an industrial arts brew.
Pours opaque, hazy golden yellow with a mid-sized white head. Settles as thin, almost transparent layer of foam struggling to cover the surface of the beer. No lacing to speak of.
Aroma is intense with a sweet, malty odor mingling with a sharp citric scent. Sweet pale malts. Fruity hints of melon an mango. Fermented boozy scent. Citrus and grape fruit.
Light carbonation. Medium thick, soft, smooth, watery, lightly tingling texture.
Flavor is medium intense with a fairly strong sweetness followed by a more moderate citric bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter with a sweet undertone. Lingers for a bit. Finish is semi-dry.
Fairly pleasant for a Indian Pale Ale that apparently comes out of a Industrial complex. Ungstrup (48658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2020 Can. An unclear golden beer with a lazing, thin white head. The aroma has notes of exotic fruits, lemons, hops, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, citrus fruits, spices, and malt, leading to a bitter finish.
