mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
Pours hazy yellow-orange opaque with a creamy beige head. Heavy aromas of pine needles and grapefruit. There’s also a creamy rich sweetness in the nose. The body and flavours are big and bold. A large portion of hops and bitterness in the taste. Though it’s still smooth and quite sweet at the same time making it very drinkable.
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 [3918-20110820] Bottle. Leafy celery hops aroma. Slightly hazy, amber orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Resin hops flavour has a bold leafy base. Medium body. Good. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7

[7198B-20150422] Bottle. Grainy light toasted cereal aroma. Hazy, brown red body with a huge foamy off-white head and spotted lacing. Bitter toasted bread and light herbal notes in the flavour. Medium-full body. Good. (7/3/7/4/15) 3.6
One of my favourites from Mikkeller.
Amber gold colour with Honey and fruit aroma but most of all lots of hops.
JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle from the Hope Valley Bottle Shop, Durham. Very dark orange pour, fluffy head, massive sticky lacing everywhere. Strange turned fruit and cantaloupe in the nose, along with a good booze kick for 7%. Odd and harsh for what I expected to be a pert, balanced pale. But in time it settles in to be pretty decent, fulsome, piney, with some nice creamy notes in the otherwise dry, sharp finish. Coulda been a contender, but still had its moments. tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, medium amber, with a decent, creamy head. Aroma is of flowery hops, honey and nectar, with some adjunct grain giving a nice creamy body. Flavour is sweetly pine, resin and some malt, with a nice growing bitterness of orange peel throughout the finish. Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
Hazy gold brown with a massive crown floating on top, looks like a yummy beer. Aroma is yummy but not that aggressive. Peach, pine, sweetness and bitter this all smells wonderful. Taste is the same but the bitter is wicked strong and lingers. Yummmmmmmmmm lemon lime hoppy goodness. Nice thick malt with a caramel flavour. Pretty good IPA, nice and simple, flavorful, highly drinkable, but nothing that makes it stand out and with the high price tag I’ll probably never but it again. mikkopen (1164) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2011
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange-brown colour, thin but lasting light beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, oranges, malt and grassy hops. The flavour is citrus-fruity, malty, with a long, bitter hoppy finish. Nicely dry, very tasty. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2011
