330ml bottle courtesy of mr_h. Reddish amber brown, decent head. Toffee hop aroma. Tropical fruit & hop flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not a typical IPA but still really good. magsinva (1250) - Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle from state line Liqour aged at least a year - so you really aren’t supposed to age an IPA ( look at my cellar to see the reason for the unintentional aging) but I think it mellowed the bitterness to make a smooth brew that played up the caramel, malt notes in the beer. So from my standpoint it was a success, but perhaps not the same brew that Mikkeller envisioned. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2013

Bar, Copenhagen (backlog). Hazy amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, fruits, catpissy notes as well as some toffee. Flavour is tropical fruits, mild sap, some caramel malts as well as toffee.
Bottle at cheese shop. Pours a cloudy amber. Reallllly good. Hoppy and delicious.

Pours clear amber with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy citrus (tangerine) and floral hops, light biscuit malt and tropical fruity esters. Flavor is heavy hops and medium bitterness, fruity esters, good supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl Bottle. Blind tasting of all 19 Mikkeller Hop Series beers. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: amber beer, stable white head.
Nose: a deep bitterness, very nice scent.
Taste: strong bitterness, rather dry, dried fruits. Holmen1 (5867) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2013
Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13: den trettende av i alt 19 i serien, og ordet inoffensive ble nevnt. IBU 72, men allikevel mild og lite dominerende. Mer ettersmak enn smak.
