Another breakthrough at work, another beer. This could be good...or bad. Grapefruit, orange, light caramel, tropical fruits in the background. If you give it some time, a light pepperiness comes through. Clear amber with a huge 3cm frothy, off white head which had decent retention due to the very active carbonation. Taste is grapefruit and apple with an interesting late funkiness kind of like tropical fruit, but mixed with that overwhelming bitterness. gr_pa (830) - siemianowice, POLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Aroma: malty, lots of caramel, some tropical fruits.Medium sweetness, lots happen in taste; it’s malty rather from pale malts. medium to light bitterness. Some alcohol in finish. Drinkable. Jimbo2 (553) - DENMARK - SEP 30, 2015
Plenty of hops, but maybe with more depth than most and a more profound bitterness than most dipa’s. Fairly complex, really... biirusaikou (2705) - - SEP 30, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller Tokyo. Rich grapefruit character, citrus peel, bit of marmalade, juicy mouthfeel, boozy and spicy notes, long bitter finish. Would sware there is grapefruit juice in it, tasty stuff but a bit too heavy and boozy. mjik83 (1645) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2015
33cl flesje bij Zeezicht, Breda
Alcoholpercentage van 9%
Uitgeschonken in origineel Mikkeller glas (erg mooi)
Uiterlijk: goudoranje met flinke schuimkraag
Aroma en smaak: fruitig als abrikoos, grafefruit, bloemig, hoppig, bittertje
Conclusie: lekker bier wederom van Mikkeller gebrouwen bij de Proef Brouwerij in België.

Pours cloudy golden with a large white head. Aroma is citrus, melon with a slight grape hint. Taste is unripened mango, citrus and theres a weird winey sourness involved that I can’t really work out before a bitter finish. Bit of a weird one but at the same time I quite like it.

First Mikkeller in over a year. Obviously I’m a moron because this is exactly why I used to buy so many. IIPA? I guess so - it’s a total disaster. This thing is everywhere and nowhere all at the same time and it’s awesome. Aroma for what I can actually find.. melon, squishy peach candy, amazing flowers and something I’ve never smelled before. The taste is very very cool and a complete mess. In la bouche: pineapple, flowers, foreign spice, super fucking bitter, chewy and oily, grass, nearly sourness, melon, huge citrus. Those all sound good but I have no clue on the order of anything. Wonderful flavours placed in totally random order. After taste is an adventure in tolerance. Went from loving this to questioning this to wanting more of this to wondering how much more I can take. Perfect yet kinda wrong - creativity and uniqueness isn’t always a winner. artemb (1162) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - SEP 25, 2015

Pours clear orange, good sticky head. Aroma is almost Belgian-style, fruity, mildly candy, hoppy pine. Flavor is big citrus, tropical fruits, and hops. Love it.

330ml brown bottle. Best before date on cap - 29/04/17. Orange gold colour, cloudy. Small beige cap with great lacework left in the glass. Aroma - big grapefruit, flowers, caramel/toffee, orange peels, peach and pineapple, alcohol. Taste - caramel malt sweetness, lightly fruity with orange peel and late grapefruit. Lingering grapefruit and orange peel aftertaste, medium bitterness, some finishing alcohol. Body is medium. Pretty solid DIPA, nice aromatics and pretty good looking in the glass. Better than expected.
