At a tasting, thanks Dror, pours a really hazy orange with a small whitish head, aroma of honey, some hops and fruity marmalade, flavor is citrusy and dry, with nice acidity, lively tiny carbonation with some spice, medium bodied, OK

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
33 cL bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, served in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber with a moderate off-white head. The head mostly remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are big aromas of grapefruit and pine, along with caramel, bread and a touch of orange peel. The flavour is intensely bitter throughout, with piney resin and a highly acidic character. Malts definitely take a back seat. The finish is long and peppery, with lots of highly acidic hops. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent IPA with a very complex hop bouquet. More rounded and subtle than your typical American double IPA and the hops are more complex. Very well done. 2011-08-11

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle, given to me by Jeff. Lighter orange amber than the Green Gold we just drank, but still an awful pretty thing to look at. Piney and citrus aroma, sweet malts stir beneath, but this beer is much more hop dominated. This is apparent on the palate too, lots of spruce tips, resin, grapefruit, mango skin. Oily body, full and hearty. Just awesome!

DSG (13692) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 14, 2011
Bottle at a tasting. Thanks Dror. Hazy deep golden. Aroma of slightly stale piney hops with some floral notes and light graininess. Bitter hoppy flavor with some cardboard, some pine, a bit of sweetness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied.

330 ml bottle. very hazy golden color. strange aroma, might be a little stale. cardboard mixed with resiny hops. hoppy flavor with simcoe dominating the palate with oniony flavors. full body with long finish. seems like it was better when it was more fresh.

rosenbergh (11155) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 13, 2011
330 ml bottle. #184. From Copenhagen, Denmark.
Murky brown colour with small to average off-white head. Strong dark bitter hoppy aroma with dark bready malty notes. Flavour is dark bitter combined with heavy bready and sweet maltiness. Fruitiness, citrus and pine sap. Rather balanced. Alcohol is quite well hidden. You can feel it but not taste.

pintbypint (3438) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
330ml brown bottle. Murky looking pour, deep golden shade, super creamy, frothy white head on top. Thick coating lace. Sweet nose, tropical fruitiness, oranges, candy. Flavour has a deep caramel malt base, fruity, hint of toffee malt, grapefruit bitterness cuts through. Some alcohol. Pine and citrus aftertaste with toffee malts. Medium body, mid to light carbonation profile. Tasty, rich and hoppy, all things in the right place.

330mL bottle poured amber with big off-white head into goblet with nice lacing. Earthy aroma. Bold hop flavor and some alcohol. A great imperial IPA.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass. Pours murky golden orange, 1-finger off-white head quickly dissipates, though lacing is above average. Nose is spicy, grapefruit and ginger cake - seems that this is a larger version of the Green Gold, which I thought was well-made, but not really my style: too sweet. Further nosing is rewarded with notes of candy, sweet tea, and some juniper notes. Flavours are quite sweet, though very well balanced by bitterness, this drinks lighter than the alcohol would suggest. Halloween toffees, ginger, nice hop spiciness; rather understated, though not in a negative way. Fresh and cake-like, yet with enough balance and lightness to make this work. I have a feeling that this isnt going to age well at all, even for an IIPA. This walks a fine line, and when the hops drop out, this beer will be long gone. However, this was consumed fresh, and was a pleasant brew.

superspak (5122) - Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle into tulip. Pours very hazy red orange color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense off white head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some lacing clings to the glass as you drink as well. Aromas of huge caramel, orange, grapefruit, pine, mango, and breadiness; with a tad bit of alcohol. Super big hoppy and sweet aromas here. Taste of huge orange, grapefruit, pine, and caramel; with a bit of spicinessand mango. Big bitterness on the finish that lingers for a long time with caramel, citrus, and pine flavors. Medium carbonation and a full and fairly slick body and mouthfeel. Even with the massive hopping of this beer, it still manages to be very balanced with big maltiness on the front to offset the big bitter bite on the finish. Quite drinkable for being almost 10%, but still a sipper. Surprisingly no alcohol noticed other than a decent warming on the finish. Overall a fantastic DIPA from Mikkeller. I have not been disappointed by them yet.
