Bottled. A dark copper coloured beer with a big white head. A massive hoppy nose with big grapefruit notes. A large body with again lots of citrussy hops. The malts give some balancing sweetness. Not a lot different to regular hardcore really. Very scrummy. Kavu (5036) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 12, 2011
Pours amber with a medium head. Aroma is very strong hops with some fruits. Flavor is malts, fruits and a lot of hops. Very full. Love it. TBone (18099) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 10, 2011

Clear amber color, small beige head. Fruity exotic mango aroma. Full-bodied. Fruity exotic flavor; nettles, mango and kiwi. Very delicious flavor, which hides ABV well. Good!
Aroma consist of orange. Has a very strong floral nose. The malt aroma is nonexistent because of the hops. The appearance is a cloudy with a thin white head and spiderweb lacing. Has an orange-red color to it. The flavor is a very hoppy. This is a full-bodied beer with a somewhat creamy texture that finishes rather long. Mikkeller is becoming one of my favorite beers. Have not been dissappointed by any of the ones i have tried. rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2011
Draught at Bishops Arms, Järntorget. Hazy amber beer with a nice beige head. Hoppy perfume aroma, floral, citrus and with pine needles. Huge hoppy perfume flavor, a bit rough and I would have hoped for a bit more complexity.

(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Kaisla, Helsinki, 20110407) The beer poured amber and quite clear. Its head was quite large and white. The very hoppy aroma had pine, mildly cirticness and also sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, malts, citricness, fruitiness, quite mild sweetness and pretty intense bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. Quite nice double IPA - especially because it wasn’t excessively sweet. ekstedt (6947) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2011

Pours amber/ruby with a bit of haze and some tan head. Very nice hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and pine. Fairly hoppy taste but well supported by a malt base that complements the hops nicely. Decent amount of bitterness on the finish, but not harsh. Very flavorful, pretty much exactly what I look for in an Imperial IPA. italianjohn (3228) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2011
