Sammy (11964) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle at Blue Monk. Cloudy grapefruit coloured body, with a good amount of head and lace. Hoppy aroma. Grapefruit and orange citrus taste. Big IBU but not a palate eraser, though a big astringent. Good drinkability.

italianjohn (3094) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Hazy deep golden pour with a orange tint, frothy creamy off white head lots of sticky lacing .... aroma of chewy caramel malts, citrusy fruity hops (light lemon and orange) .... taste is of rindy citrusy hops (orange and lemons), spicy and bitter with caramel and lightly toasted malts on the back end .... finish is of a bitter/spicy hop "burn" that lingers .... abv hidden well ... mouthfeel is lively and a little oily ... solid considering the abv

osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange with a long lasting small off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit and caramel malts with a slight hint of alcohol. Flavor of sweet malt with a bunch of bitterness at the finish and some warming from the alcohol.

Hussey (60) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2012
20 cl tasting glass @ Mikkeller bar in Copenhagen, Denmark. Bright orange, amber pour. Short lived lacy head. Aroma of citrus and pine. My kid (18 yo but not a beer drinker) said "it smells like orange juice". I concur. The taste was a unique IPA experience. Great balance of ingredients. A pleasure from start to finish. Palate coated in an ocean of obvious west coast hoppiness. The lemony-citrus hop road has a big pine/resinous stripe down the middle. Just enough malt for the hops to hold onto. Reminds me of Green Flash West Coast IPA but with a bit more complexity.

suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Amber colored pour. Sizable white head that fades pretty quickly and leaves plenty of lacing behind. Nice malty aroma underneath a smattering of hops. Some notes of cereal. Nice. Taste is a sweet malty, hop amalgamation. Plenty of body and a nice bitter finish with a little dryness. Pretty tasty.

sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 8, 2012
Great job by Mikkeller. Front label says High Burn, back label says Low Burn. BB 04/04/2018. Dore, col blanc crmeux et pais. Arme prend de suite sur le houblon qui est trs apprciable, notes tropicales, malt lger, le tout restant assez monodimensionnel. En bouche, houblon est aussi partout, un palais rchauffant avec ce ct houblonn qui donne une brve amertume pice en fin de bouche. Le palais est pais, collant aux lvres voire rsineux. Notes dagrumes entre citron et pamplemousse, le profile malt reste en retrait donnant une fine pointe de caramel.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange gold with a dense white layer of off-white cream.

Aroma: Grapefruit ,earthy skunky hops, pineapple and caramel.

Taste: Bitter and juicy hops, salty caramel malt, pineapple, bitterness lingers.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Rough texture.

Overall: This was big and hoppy and sweet. A great example of an American Double IPA. Im glad I tried it but have no reason to ever drink it again unless Im in Europe and its Fresh.
