, København. Foggy orangey-golden body with a fine-laced two-finger blond head on top. Hop heaven. Apricot, grass, orange zest, mint and faint resin on the nose. Lots of hops on to tongue as well, a generous amount of zesty and piny bittering hops, less of the fruity flavoring. Taste has a noticable caramelly malt presence too. Body is medium full. Texture is oily. Really bitter end. Smells great. Taste is very good too, but I prefer more of the flavoring hops and less of the bittering.
If you like Amarillo hops, you’ll like this one. Amberish pour with a nice white head. Orange and lemon nose. Lots of caramel in the mouthfeel. Some citrus as well. Rated on 4/8/10 jrob21 (3807) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2010
On tap at the Midway. The caramel malt body here was a little less pronounced. Maybe it was the serving style, maybe it was the recipe. Either way, the hops here are divine. I’m a fan of the Amarillo to begin with so I’m probably biased but just as with all of this series, there is a pleasant enough helping of the hops to get you familiar but not to kill you with sensory overload. These are the bubblegum hops so expect a lot of that when you are experiencing this drink. A nice slight bitter finish as well. Tasty. Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2010
Pours orangey amber with the large off-white persistent head I’m used to seeing with the Mikkeller IPA’s. Many rings of lacing.
Nose shows lots of juicy fruits, confectionary, oranges, lemon, resin and peach blossom. Underneath is noticeable caramel malty goodness. This is great!
Flavours include more resin, peach and loads of caramel. Bold bitterness quickly asserts itself (overshadowing most of the other characteristics in the process) but is unfortunately slightly metallic.
Carbonation seems a little high, cuts the sweetness that I would have liked to last through the finish. DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2010
Bottle from Frank Smith’s, and I’ve seen this one at State Line also. Pours hazy copper with a huge, 3-finger fluffy white head. Great look on this one. Nose is resiny, perfumy florals, slightly fruity, and caramel malty. Tastes caramel malty, with resiny hops, some floral notes, and a slightly fruity wey hoppy finish. Well made, although I prefer the Sly Fox version by a hair.

Clear orangey golden body with a good white head. Nose has oranges and a bit dusty as well. Some grapefruit notes in the taste but a bit on the dull side also some grassy notes. Drinks well not my favourite from the single hop series but still a good IPA. davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 17, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 Bottle at Bar Fred. Great, addictive beer. Aromas of fresh tomato, grass, hay, grain, and flowers. Taste is intense, predominantly bitter, with sour notes, and long length. Palate is silky, with a medium-to-full body. Red colour, with a frothy head. blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Nice fruity citric aroma with some lighter malty notes. The flavor has a lighter citric hop profile with some light grassy/floral notes as well. Pretty good. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2010
Bottle; poured a slightly dark, orange-amber color with a medium to large, off white head. Aroma was quality, with earth, fruit, flowers, spice, and caramel malt.
