3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent beer, though I wouldn’t label it an IPA. Aroma and flavor were identical. Strong caramel flavor, almost milky, with a sweet sticky sugary finish. No hops present, this beer almost tastes like a sweet lighter barley wine. This could almost be a sweet after dinner desert. Nice carbonation.
My fifth 2012 Mikkeller single hop bottle. Deep, murky brown. Lovely floral aroma initially. Good head. Sweet, dank, some citric acid bitterness. Some burnt toast. Nice mouth feel. rouhlas (3981) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - AUG 23, 2015

Pours a dirty brown color, completely hazy with some debris flowing around. Topped with an average sized beige colored head. Caramel aroma, some biscuity notes and tiny fruity notes. Taste is sweet and biscuity, caramel and some spicy feel in the end. A gentle but very nice. SinH4 (6561) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Very piney and resinous, american style. Sweet. Good finish with lingering bitterness and full body. Very good! Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2014
Aroma: bit of spice and some floral notes fading to malty character
App: amber orange and an amazing tan head meringue stable with sheet lacing
Flavour: some metallic hop and clean malt
Palate: long finish

"this one was a bit too mellow for me. drank it 2nd of 9. ranked it 9th. slightly fruity and spicy in the aroma and flavor, but both were subdued. ok, but the most boring of the night. 51 ibu."

Bottled, and probably quite old. Hazy amber color. Decent head, mediocre retetion. Earthy, slightly sour aroma. Bitter towards the end with some metallic aftertones.
