Bottle. Unclear medium amber orange color with a large, frothy - fizzy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, grape, orange, flowers. Flavor is moderate sweet and heavy bitter (like grape or citrus shell bitter) with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (For me a very nice aroma but the flavor is way to citrus shell bitter burn) (090308) yespr (48931) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2008
From tap at Lord Nelson and served in a Mikkeller glass. Pours slight hazy orange and with head (poured to the top). Soft peach fruity aroma. Way too cold served. Flavour is, not unexpected, heavy heavy hoppy with a solid fruity flavour of peach, grapefruit and pine. Bitter and fruity lingering finish, quite dry. Very very delicious. But to be honest, half pint is fantastic, full pint is cloying, brutal and somewhat just too much hops. Interestingly this tastes like a pale ale, just with an overdose of US hops.

Drunk to celebrate my rating number 9800. A slighltly hazy amber beer with a medium light tan head. The aroma is lovely hoppy with notes of grass and grapefruit, with underlying notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet - but right from the beginning the body seems thin - my guess is that the final gravity is quite low - I’d have liked a bit stronger body - afterall the beer rings in at 6% ABV. After the thin body, the very dry finish is noticed next - the finish is also very bitter - which is nice and refreshing. And finally when You’ve grasped the relative thinness and the enormous bitterness, then You pick up notes of grapefruit peal, fresh cut grass, and lemon, on a subdued background of malt and caramel. There is very little sweetness to balance the harsh bitterness. Good - drinkable and OK refreshing for a hop head like me - but I know Mikkeller beers I’d rather drink all night. joergen (29624) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2008

UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Lightly hazy amber colour, small head. Perfumy aroma of citrus and lychee. Medium sweet with rather crisp mouthfeel. Completely dominated by fresh, ctric and perfumy American hops. Long bitter finish. Intense and pleasant, but not complex. Typical American style clean malt profile, combined with a seemless, mouthfilling hoppiness. Really good!
