Not a fan. Aroma has notes of grapefruit. Hop bitterness a bit harsh, could be a better balanced beer. Very cloudy but good head retention. My least favorite in this single hop series.
Comparing to the sister Mikkeller Cluster. This one takes the cake (for its age). Roasty, resiny, spruce, leaves. Clear deep gold with high sediment. Raisins? Fresher and more bitter than the other. Both have a short finish, but this one is longer and more pleasant. vanvenlo (1885) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2015

330ml bottle. Clear orange color with off white head. Hoppy and malty aroma, grassy, citrusy fruity, grapefruit, caramel, bready. Sweet and bitter taste. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. SeniorZozo (1843) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 15, 2015
Pine, spruce, dry leaves, very nice. Much smoother than I expected yet it balances the light biscuit and sweet malty body very well. Sharper but nice bitterness.

Hazy copper body with a half inch of tan head. Malty aroma with grassy, earthy hops. Dank earth, pine, rain water. If you brew an IPA, please put a date on the bottle. glennmastrange (2868) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. Heavy cookie and caramel for the malt, moderate perfume and orange for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast, with a hint of brown sugar. Head is small, frothy, beige with a spot or two for lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is muddy, medium brown with a bit of medium sized particles. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter and moderately acidic. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a lively carbonation. Seemed a little more malt dominant then IPAs I’m in to, still a good drinking beer. mircoas (314) - ITALY - MAR 15, 2015
33cl @ bottle. Ipa dalla solita scandinava MIkkeller. Ottimo l’aspetto e l’aroma, ma secondo me al gusto spicca troppo l’amaro. csaso (2284) - Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle - big foamy head, dark copper color, big tangerine and mild pine aroma and flavor, solid malt backbone, very bitter mouthfeel, not bad overall but not one of my favorites out of this series

Pours a hazy coppery brown color, topped with lots of lasting cream colored head. Malty aroma, decently present, notes of caramel, biscuits and some dark fruits can also be picked up. Taste is on the otehr hand hoppy and bitter from the start to finish, although some biscuity notes are in the aftertaste along with herbal feel. Not bad
