Hazy brownish orange with white head. Smell and taste musty citrus. Very enjoyable. Beese (3051) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd Bush on 1 February 2014. Poured a golden/ yellow colour with a slight haze and a dense white head. Fruity aroma with some grapefruit, lychee and straw. Citrus hop bitterness in the flavour, balanced with a biscuity malt backbone. Dry grassy palate. M_Sack (750) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2013
Tap @ The Taphouse Sydney. Hazy amber with a medium off white head and strong lacing. Subtle aromas of grapefruit, citrus flowers and some caramel malt. Citrus fruit, a hint of resin with some caramel back notes. Strong bitterness throughout the palate. A good showcase of the bravo hop. Fredis23 (567) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2013
I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh… wlajwl (6943) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Aroma is citrus, light tropical fruit, earthy notes and a slight metallic edge. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, fruit, earthiness and tangy/sour finish.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Orange amber pour with a smaller white head. Tropical fruit and caramel aroma. Bright on the palate, good heft, citrusy. I’m digging it. Tide (4063) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, caramel, floral hops, pine and a bit of mango. Bitter finish with citrus and pine. Very nice, balanced IPA. sebletitje (10220) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2013
Draft @ Hoppy Loft.
Orangée trouble, col blanc cassé.
Arôme offre un très beau bouquet houblonné renfermé, certaine épaisseur s’en dégage. Pointe de malt caramel, mais le tout compensé par un houblonné puissant tirant légèrement sur des extraits huileux des alphas et cette impression de cônes de houblons bouillis.
Palais offre une belle alternance entre houblon et malts. Fruité orangé - purée, note d’aiguilles de pin, fini reste assez huileux et épais. Malts de caractère pâle et caramel. kraddel (8602) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2013

pours hazy , light amber . not much foam . smell is green, yet aromatic ( a bit ) , fruity . taste is bitter, bit fruity , green hops . doable, but less than mediocer IPA RexTalionis (3775) - FINLAND - SEP 18, 2013
Bottled. Pours amber in color with a frothy off white head. Sweetish ripe fruityness, some floral notes and summer meadow in aroma, perhaps some herbal at the same time. Just slightly grassy bitter in taste with some sweeter malty and berry notes backing it up. Feels quite juicy actually. Leaves one with quite pleasant lemony and sweetish, almost toffee kind of notes in the end.
