I’m not sure how they decide what is an american pale ale, and what is an india pale ale, cause they really are both hop bombs, well atleast this one is. This reminds me so much of three floyds alpha king. HUGE high alpha hops in the nose, insane amounts of grapefruit, and citrus. this is a hop heads wet dream, outstanding stuff if you love hops.

Perhaps too bitter on the linger, but otherwise the most well-balanced pale ales I’ve ever tasted. Great lacing, nice sharp but sweet aroma. Really beautiful hop bite melts into mildly-sweet malts, oats and caramel prominent. 77ships (9698) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
330 ml. bottle sampled @ Als ik mijn ogen toedoe, ben ik in Honoloeloe! During the Mikkeller event. Hazy orange, small white head. Nose is huge bright pine, zest, orang, very rich hop & fruit. Taste is bright very fruity & nicely hoppy orange peel, zest, pine, mandarin, grapefruit. Drinks really well. Massively vibrant, fruity & drinkable. Really nice, beautiful.

a very nice looking sloudy copper beer with a large creamy yellowish head. flavor of sweet caramel and fresh green piney hops perfectly balanced. not too bitter but not too sweet. an earthy caramel malt underneath. light and fresh. this is exquisite.

Oh you cheeky Danes! All Other Pale!
But seriously, this is a great beer! Have there been enough exclamation points for you to understand that this is a good beer.
where to begin...
Aroma is like a light IPA. Some wheaty-grassy notes under a a fruity-citrusy hop note. Even the aroma is well balanced though with some doughy notes as well.
It looks good to drink as well and tastes even better. the hops and malts are perfectly balanced.
GREAT beer all around.

Bottle at Chris_o birthday bash 08. My beer of the day. Gold with slight haze, thin beige head. God that is such a good aroma. The peppery grapefruit. The fruit is just lovely. Jellied grapefruit. Then in the mouth is juicy malt and lovely hops which go on and on. Lovely and definitely beer of the day. OD40oz (774) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - JAN 25, 2009
After having the beer geek breakfast I was pumped to try this one. Pours like iced tea with a nice foamy, off-white head. Aroma was of grass, citrus and hops. Tasted very earthy and hoppy. Good lacing. Dry finish. Damn good beer. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2008
I poured this at a very cold temp and it still produced the classic Mikkeller head. Good retention and superb fluffy, sticky lacing that lasts. The color is a firey orange. Strong aromas of citrus rind and leather. Full nectar with good carbonation. This is a classic. Blistering bitterness balanced beautifully with a solid malt backbone. It’s dry not fruity. It’s simply classic. The finish is pure American west coast bitter that lingers.

A great APA made in Denmark. Beautiful pour. Orange with a small head and tight lacing. Orange citrus aroma. Taste is very hoppy...just the way I like them. I just finished mowing and this hit the spot. malrubius (2864) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 7, 2008
600 ml bottle in pint glass. Copper with lasting head and lace. Nicely balanced fresh citrus hop and biscuity aroma. Very nice mild honey peach sweetness with toasty biscuit and citrusy fresh hop finish. Medium body and carbo. Nice mouthfeel. Really really an excellent complex and satisfying pale ale. Too bad it is so expensive that I will only be able to enjoy it once.
