From tap. Pours slight cloudy orange with a fully diminished white head. Distinct citrusy and sight spiced hopy aroma. Bitter ad dry flavoured. Bone dry hoppy really. Dry and citric to orange fruity finish. Very dry brew with a solid citrusy hops presence. Ungstrup (37561) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2006
[A small in-between celebration for a number freak - this is my rating number 5555 - so I celebrate it with another great brew from Mikkeller] A very red beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of grapefruit, and some grass, but also a slight dusty note. The flavor is sweet with some notes of caramel, which is very soon overpowered by the hops, which from the start is very bitter with sharp notes of grapefruit with all the acidity of the grapefruit. joergen (28106) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2006

(as Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe IPA). Golden colour, small head. Aroma is apricot, some yeast and grass. Flavour is quite much the same. Wellbalanced.
UPDATED: APR 24, 2006 Bottled. Cloudy reddish brown, rich head. Extremely intereseting aroma of grapefruit and red berries. Medium sweet with fairly soft mouthfeel. Lightly salty with plenty of red grapefruit. Very interesing hop character and more balanced than the Centennial IPA. Mindblowing! Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2009 (Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy, dark amber with a gigantic, dense and lasting, beige head - sorta shaving foam style. Fat and greasy aroma hops in the nose. Quite a full body with a solid base of caramel malt. Dry - almost leathery - notes of the Simcoe leaving a dry but not overly bitter finish. 010207 madmitch76 (24791) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2012

Clear amber beer. Little white head. Softish palate. Sweetish Simcoe hops. Minerally orange with a touch of lemon citrus. Good malt base. Finishes soft and dry.
Nice bright orange color, off white head. Aroma of Pine Sol, but in a good way. Even, balanced bitterness with a dry finish. Nice.
