Powerful hoppy nose with mango and blue cheese. A lot of mango in the taste. Good bitterness. Extremely interesting.

hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2009
Bottle mgumby10s & hopscotchs WtFFfFDotF Throwdown Murky golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. Big, musky, citric, Simcoe/cat pee aroma with a pleasant whiff of understated toffee malt. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Pungent, earthy and insanely dry with very little residual sugar maybe over attenuated. Lengthy, bitter, Mojave-dry finish. Bottle provided by mgumby10!

trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - APR 12, 2009
Bottle. Plenty of fresh simcoe hops and grass in aroma. Very intense aroma. Unclear orange colour with beige head. Bitter hops flavour very grapefruitlike. Very dray aftertaset as expected.

Bov (12382) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 12, 2009
courtesy of fiulijn - clear red-amber colour with a little persistent beige foam; aroma of mango and apricot; solid hoppiness; good malt body, slightly sticky and very bitter; dry and very bitter aftertaste, long lasting with neverending fruity (mango) and cheesy notes - very nice and well-made

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2009
Nice hazy yellow color with a surpisingly large hear. Aroma is pure simcoe with all its wonderful citrusy goodness. Flavor is citrusy and bold with just enough malty sweetness. Nice mouthfeel. Not the greatest IPA, but outside of the US, no one seems to do a better job with the style.

hirigalzkar (3036) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2009
Bottle. Look: Orange, white head. Smell: Cookies, sweet citrus. Taste. Citrus sweetness, more bittterness in the aftertaste. Overall: My favorite of all the single hop IPA:s.

vyvvy (6132) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2009
Pours hazy copper with a huge light tan head. The aroma has funky as all get out hops, basement funk, fruitiness, green onions and some caramel malt lurking in the background. Medium body with lots of soft carbonation that delivers the flavor to every part of the mouth. The flavor starts just like the aroma with some abrasiveness and bite with the malt taking even more of a back seat. The finish is a bit spicy as well with some richness. This is a great IPA.

soccer290 (225) - Highland Park, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2009
12 oz bottle. Ah, another Mikkeller, but an IPA, which interested me. Pours a copper brown color with a half finger high white head, with yeast floating throughout. Smells of fresh hops, citrus, malt, and a bit floral-y. Tastes of tons of hops (an amazing amount for just a single IPA), some citrus (grapefruit I believe) and a bit of malt, but not too much. Goes down pretty smoothly, and leaves a nice fresh hop aftertaste. Overall a very good IPA.

topherh (1927) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2009
Pours cloudy amber with lots of little floaties. One finger off white head and a nice big hoppy aroma. Flavor is pine, citrus fruit and enough malt to keep it from being overly bitter. Nice IPA
