On tap. Against The Grain version. Pours an almost clear deep, dark amber with an off-white head. Intense but also somewhat greasy and herbal hop aroma. Medium-bodied, lightly sweet fruit and caramel before distinct citrusy hops leaving a bitter finish. Straight, theres nothing wrong with it but its simply not all that thrilling. Mikkeller has made a lot of better IPAs at De Proef! 070412

A very nice brew of course. I prefer the Stateside IPA to this. There are subtle difference between the two. This one it a tad less matly.

beerguy101 (5359) - Newark, California, USA - APR 6, 2012
Sampled on 3/9/2012. This Imperial IPA pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, orange, citrus and piney hops. A medium to full bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity, caramel and sweet. The hops are citrusy and piney with a touch of grapefruit. A medium bitter double IPA. Decent carbonation A nice hoppy IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2012
Shared over at James place. Definitely over aged even though I just recently purchased it. Clear golden pour with massive near white head. Good bitterness, but not much else. Lingering thin oily bitterness on palate. Meh.

From tap at MikkellerBar. Drakes version is hazy golden deep yellow while the against the grain version is dark orange, clearer too. Both with a small white head. Aroma is orange fruity, crisp citrusy. Drakes version is more grapefruity and light cornish / malty. Bitter, toasted malt base in the Drakes version, also pine hoppy notes. Grain version is more crisp citrusy. Bitter and lasting citrusy finish. Lasting malty too for the Drakes version. Quite different. I prefer the Against the Grain version.

joergen (26389) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 5, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy orange coloured with a small white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, bread and hops with notes of pine needles. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, hops, grass and grape fruits. Dry hoppy finish.

Bomber from the Best Damn Beer Store. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A light biscuit and hop nose. The flavor is nice; sweet fruit, apricots, lemon, zesty, toast, caramel, more lingering bitter lemon. Nice. Simple.

Interesting. Very Mikkeller. A bit oxidized. Love the dry pine and super easy to drink body, flavors scream Mikkeller, alcohol well hidden, fairly bitter, put this in six packs at $11.99 and Im in.

beernbourbon (1569) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle. Pour is clear copper with a thin white head. Aroma is resinous hop , caramel and cereal hop, and a touch of floral hop. Flavor is true to nose with resinous hop and caramel malt. This is probably my favorite brewer in the world, but foreign IPAS etc are rarely as good as they should be.
