First contact with the beers is really intriguing since you can see the thick head that you get from the tap. Smell wise nothing really extra wow..taste wise though we’re talking for a serious & true IPA here.. The bitterness along with the aromas that the hops will give you is so full and intense that you just dont want to stop drinking it.
It is one of the very few beers that I’ve drunk a 2nd in a row despite the fact that the choices on the taps were also really really good as well.
PS1: Well done Mikeller!!
PS2: Well done to The Local for getting us the best beers from around the world in Athens!
PS3: I had tasted Green Gold couple of years back @ the Local, but for some reason I hadn’t appreciated it properly at that time.. Beerclubsa (147) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 15, 2017
340ml from Roeland Liquors. Pours a hazy deep gold with a loosely packed off white, fluffy head with great retention and lacing. Aromas of pine resin, tropical fruit and some background caramel notes with biscuit. Palate has medium high carbonation and med-light body. Flavour of citrus and slight caramel with high bitterness which lingers into the finish, balanced by some malt notes. Thoroughly enjoyed. pivnizub (10576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle: Amber coloured, hazy with loads of floaties, small, stable, creamy and lacy off-white head; solid and dry herbal-piney nose, subdued traces of sweet malt underneath; moderate to solid bitter flavour with a delicate sweetness, medium bodied with a creamy MF; lingering - mainly dry - spicy herbal-hoppy finish with - again - a special amount of balancing pale malt.

Pours dark hazy orange with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is earthy, citrus and light caramel. Taste is mild bitterness with some malty sweetness. Medium bodied, slick with some drying on the finish. Overall a solid IPA that tracks more malty then the usual American counterparts.

Shared with wim at phil’s place. Orange colored beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Floks of yeast poored in. Hopped floral aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is hopped floral bitter. Cristobal37 (1127) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 23, 2016
Darker bronze. Sappy resiny hops and citrus. Really satisfying huge palate wrecking ipa. Like eating hops. Long oily bitterness loiters on the palate. Tastes nice but a bit much in the end.
