4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
W nosie srednio intensywnie, ananas i mango, karmel, zywica. Barwa zlota, lekkie zmetnienie, piana sredniej wysokosci, gesta. W smaku owocowe i zywiczne, sporo tropików z ananasem na czele, ciateczkowosc, zywica. Goryczka srednia w kierunku wysokiej, zywiczna. Dobre, ale strach pomyslec jak smakowaloby swieze.

Tap at Salon piva. Slightly too caramelly with too much body. Otherwise this is a typical IPA with med-high bitterness and med-high citrusy fruity hops flavours. Good.
