The pour is a clear golden color with a full, fluffy, creamy, off-white head which is mostly lasting and leaves scattered, drippy lace. The nose is pleasant with lots of pine resins, floral, herbal, light ginger, some pink grapefruit, and gooseberries. The flavor is very similar with lots of fruit (gooseberries, pink grapefruit), still quite resinous, piney, very faint ginger, and herbal underneath. The palate is lively, light to medium, and oily/sticky. The finish is mostly bitter, gooseberries, pine resins, and herbal. I actually liked this quite a bit; the intense fruit was pleasant for me, and the underlying herbal was a nice touch. The pine addition is an obvious complementary piece but the subtle ginger worked well in this, despite my skepticism. Just another great beer from Mikkeller.

Hazy orange/golden with medium creamy head. Aroma is citric and grassy. Taste is very delicate: pine, ginger, a perfect blend of sweet, tart and bitter flavour. Pleasantly smooth and slightly fizzy that enhance the flavours in the end. Enjoyable.

m.mahu (114) - Iasi, ROMANIA - JAN 11, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 Bottle. Feels like a mild, overly tamed IPA. The ginger is subtle, but at times feels too much. An ok beer, would however not have again.

Bottled. Hazy orange body with a thick white head. The aroma has pine and wood. The taste is good as well, it’s surprisingly pleasant.

Amber color, big staying white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, apricot, peach, citrus, oranges. Taste of tropical fruits, oranges, peaches, moderate maltiness, pine, herbs. Ginger and tropical fruits in long awesome finish. Yep, this is what IPAs should be.

Taboada (1027) - Compostela (Galiza), - DEC 28, 2016
Tasted from the tap on the 27/12/2016. Golden colour with a medium foamy white head. Aroma of hops and pine. Bit too sweet because of the ginger. Next one please!

lello4ever (794) - ITALY - DEC 27, 2016
Il colore è perfetto e natalizio, un bel Biondo velato. La schiuma è di buona persistenza, bianca, frizzantina e un po’ cremosa. Al naso note speziata, floreale. Al palato in risalto la nota di zenzero, spezie, con una leggera amarezza e sentori di agrumi e soprattutto pino. Il corpo è medio, leggermente cremosa. Alcol che sostiene benissimo la bevuta, finale amarognolo dato da ottimi luppoli. Carbonazione media. Eccellente ipa di natale.

ALIBALI (1109) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2016
MIKKELLER RULES!!! Again and again. Der Waldschrat unter den IPAs. Harz, Moos und allerlei Gestrüpparomen bilden das Grundgerüst für diese, mal wieder, exorbitante Hopfenrutsche, der schlank getreidigen Art. Der Schaum ist cremig, der Look fett Westcoast IPAig und auch der Tropictouch fehlt nicht. HOT!! Nur die, von Baby und Micha, vehement eingeforderten Belgienquerverweise, entgehen mir völlig. 0,75/80DKK. Bestellt beim famosen Mikkeller Online Store.

750ml bottle shared on Christmas Eve in Veghel. Pours a clear golden with a fluffy white head. Hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, orange, grassy, light herbs. Has a spicy sharp kick which is probably the ginger and pine needles. Medium bitter, under medium sweet.
