On tap in Tokyo. Pours a mostly cloudy orange hue with a medium white head. A big citrus resinous nose. Grassy, straw, big sweet citrus, resin, a bit of mild bitterness. Good.

Poured out from the new packaging of a 330 ml can into a tulip glass. The appearance of the IIPA is a hazy golden orange tone, topped with a very generous dollop of thick white froth. The aromas released are perfumes of citrus fruit - mainly grapefruit but also a mix of tropical fruits - and florals - pine and grass. In the mouth, there is a lightly sweet taste, overlaid with fruits and pines, and then intense and lingering bitterness all the way into the long finish. The average to soft carbonation gives it good bite and reinforces the medium-bodied mouthfeel. A winner!

TEJA (3066) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2017
Can at Betony Kouvola. Short and fluffy beige head. Opaque orange color. Intense and nice hoppy aroma. Hoppy and big bitter taste. Some malt in the taste but not chrystal sweetness. Good body.

Big thick malty mouth with tons of tropical fruit and caramel. Modestly sweet. Rounded. Drinks easy for 8.9%

330 ml. bb 18/05/2017. Translucent orange-amber pour with a big spongy foam that slowly settles to a sticky cobweb. Mild nose of toffee, tea with lemon, toast and green onion. Flavors of garlic, caramel, galangal, orange-lemon tea, peppery resin, toasted walnut and wood. Medium body is smooth and chuggable with a bit of a dry slant and low-medium fizz. Would love to try one that’s not beyond the bb date.

Marko (5711) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 7, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2017 Can at Craft Room. Misty orange/amber body. Lasting small white head. Aroma... Grainy notes mixing with tropical fruity hoppiness. Sweet maltiness up front, mixing with coconut and tropical fruit hops. Just. Too. Sweet. Excellent aromatics but too damn sweet. Come on Mikkel... This would have been world class with better attenuation...

Bottle sample from notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, citrus, earthy and resiny hops, decent bitterness, pretty good for a Mikkeller IPA.

AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 26, 2017
12oz bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Oconomowoc with a 5/18/2017 date on the cap. My 400th DIPA rating! Either super fresh, or a week past the "best by" date. Hazy copper orange pour with a solid 1" off-tan head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma has pine, citrus, pineapple, some tropical fruits, and caramel. Taste is of tangy citrus, other fruits, some pine, and some candied fruits, all on a solid caramel malt base. Medium bodied with some alcohol presence, the blend is good and the carbonation is solid. Finishes to the bitter side of the bitter-sweet scale, but in a well fought battle. Tasty, solid offering. If old, could not tell, which is an excellent sign. 14.2

Foffern (1879) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2017
Can. Has a hazy orange colour with an off-white head. Fruity aroma of pine, grapefruit, orange peel and some caramel. The flavour is also fruity with tones of hops, grass and grapefruit. Has a slick mouth feel, full-bodied and solid but balanced bitterness. A top IIPA that is all fruity, hoppy and well-balanced.

4.2
Excalibur123 (494) - Soria, SPAIN - MAY 14, 2017
Presenta ámbar oscuro con buena corona de espuma de larga retención; aromas a pino, caramelo, fruta tropical, miel, melocotón, albaricoque y resina; en boca entrada potente, con amargor medio, final maltoso y ligeramente dulce, cuerpo pleno y carbónico medio, duradero retrogusto amargo con final dulce, compleja y equilibrada cerveza, correcta en estilo.
