33cl bottle at The Coastguard, Kent, Good earthy Sauvin hop, better as you left it and it opened up. Good intense earthy Nelson Sauvin hop. Great that this pub has a lot of different Mikkeller beers on offer, in fact closer to me than anywhere else. Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Lush tropical aromas and flavors flow from this new to me and very unique hop. The fruits just pour from this thing and dont stop. Quite tasty, very drinkable. Really excites me for the simcoe. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2009
2009 Bottle - Thanks jrob21! - Pours dense orange with a massive beige head...aroma is very earthy, farmy, sticky pine resin, tangerine...flavour is almost tropical, tangering, pineapple, the cherries that come in fruit cocktail that don’t really taste anything like a cherry but have transcended and redefined "cherry"...lingering bitterness...def not a hop varietal that I’d use for aromatics (though it does get better as it opens up), but the flavour is just beautiful... minch25 (577) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Bright vibrant orange color, thick beige head, highly effervescent.
Tropical citrus aroma; orange, grapefruit, kumquat.
A shade over aggressive in the carbonation. Starts and ends bitter, long bitter aftertaste. Bitterness comes off like orange rind and somehow bitter squash. A little yeasty as well. Not the best IPA ever to pass through my lips, but damn can Mikkeller make a tasty IPA.

Pours with a golden orange body topped by a thick, foamy head with a good amount of lacing. It’s full of grapefruity hop notes with a little underlying malt. Medium bodied, well carbonated and smooth. yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 1, 2009
01/10/2009. 330ml bottle Hashigo Zake. Herb and dry gass at first. Berry fruit later (well spotted Dom). Caramel malt at the centre of this beer but everything hangs of it really nicely. It’s clean, it’s bitter, it’s fruity, it’s balanced. Strong character. Much better use of Sauvin than I’m seeing out of NZ berweries... so far. Good boys.

Amber, orange colored brew. Hoppy, grapefruit, berries in the aroma. Flavor has got some very nice hop taste, these hops are really nice. Intense, but not aggressive. Hop flavor is not long lasting. This is an easy drinking and higlly enjoyable IPA.
