English: At Mikkeller we believe that it is among the inventive amateurs that the wildest beers are being brewed and it is precisely those brewers that we like to work with. That is why we have a competition each year to test who can brew the most intense hop bomb. This year, Sren Davids won that competition.
This beer is brewed as a collaboration between Sren Davids and Mikkeller.

Leighton (20133) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle at the East Croydon Beer Tasting. Pours cloudy golden with a sturdy, white head. Has a clean hop aroma, citrus, grass, a bit of toast. Medium sweet flavor, bit more toast, some cirus rind, resinous pine, juicy. Medium in body with average carbonation. Slight warming finish with juicy hops, toasty malts and sticky, oily pine. A very solid drinker.

oh6gdx (26261) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2011
Bottled. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, some fruits, grass and quite much bitterness as well. Flavour is grass, fruits and some floral notes. Mild caramel as well as some toffeeish notes as well. Pleasant flavour, but the aroma is not too nice.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2011
Very hazy yellow-orange beer. Extremely fruity flavour, though partly of too overripe fruits for my taste. A very slight note of cooked veggies sneak in after a lot of sniffing. The body is a bit thin and not enough for the hops to fall back on and get supported by in order to reach some kind of balance.

rebella (39) - SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2011
Bottled, 50cl. Amber colored beer with a small-ish off-white head. Lots of hops in the aroma and the taste. The taste is also filled with grapefruit, lemon. The finish is dry and bitter, in a very pleasant way as well as the body.

TBone (16836) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2011
Bottled 500ml (Beer Planet, BB 06/2012)
Hazy-murky orange, small white head. Intensive fresh hoppy aroma: pine, resin, citrus and orange. Palate feels weaker than ABV 6%. Flavor is piney hoppy with some pineapple fruity notes. Finish has even salty, salt licorice flavors! Good beer with more hops in the nose than in the flavor.

Countbeer (6403) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle: Small white light head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Smell hops, citrus, lime, spices and cactus. Taste is a mix of hops, citrus, bitter, malts, flowers, yeast, light dry, slight hints of barley, corn and mollasses. Aftertaste of light dry with hints of fruit and hops. Low carbo, medium to fuller body, tingly soft mouthfeel and a light creamy/watery texture. I love the drawing on the label!
