COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Earlier batches brewed by Mikkeller at rbk Bryggeri, rbk, Denmark.
A love of American microbrews is the inspiration behind this IPA, brewed with generous amounts of aromatic, American hops, which provide the significant freshness and bitterness with lots of citrus notes. The taste sensations are nicely balanced by the sweetness from the caramel malt.
Ingredients : Water, malt (pilsner, munich and caramunich), flaked oats, hops (chinook, cascade and amarillo) and ale yeast.

Clear amber, moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is typical PNW hops: grapefruit, citrus, pine, etc. Body is medium, moderate bitterness and sweetness. Reasonable hop flavors. Somewhat off balance, hard to describe, but blame the malts. Decent to good IPA, but a dime a dozen IMO.

Aroma has that typical softness that Mikkeller is famous for,gentle hopping floral at first but after a while you get some citrus, taste is a smooth caramel soup, more malt then aroma would lead to to believe,bitterness hits you bigtime, flavor hops gentle and citrusy, very drinkable , but I like a little more oomph in my IPAs

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Copper pour, thin white head. Aroma is pretty damn malty lots of caramel and some citrus hops. Flavor is yet again another european IPA malt bomb. All caramel malt, resiny bitterness but low on the flavor and aroma. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet cloying finish and a big resiny aftertaste. Citrus hops are kinda there but not really.

nick76 (4397) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2008
The aroma is very hopyy with malt. The appearance is copper with a nice head. The flavor is like the aroma, nice but simple. The palate is thin but ok. Overall its good.

BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2008
After having Beer Geek...I thought this would be more impressive. Visually stunning, thats about where it ends. Fluffy head sits atop a golden mandarin liquid. Aroma is inviting but not over the top. Taste is extremely sour; pine and resin. There isnt any type of malty sweetness to counter the hop bitterness. Definitely not worth the $$$ youll shell out.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2008
500ml - Aroma is strong caramel with citrus and pine hops Pours transparent orange-brown with a medium head and great lacing. Flavor is hoppy first with a caramel finish. Palate is tart and creamy. Very tasty, but not unique enough to justify the price over here "Stateside".

12-28-07 bottle shared with lb4lb thanks to tytoanderso.
A very thin soapy white head floats on a transparent clean reddish amber color. Smell is hoppy but surprisingly very sweet as well. Strong hop flavor and bitterness. A hint drying, but has a very nice crisp finish. A bit thinner than I had hoped but very drinkable and enjoyable overall! Everything is very nice about this beer - it just would be that much better if all of the elements could be kicked up a notch.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle. This beer is just all over the place. Very complex and enjoyable. A little light on the aroma side but still nice. Nice orange color with thick head. Starts nice and floral and then quickly moves to a nice bitter hop flavor. Ends nice, dry and sweet. I like this one.

notalush (5855) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Fiery orange pour, with a small rin of soapy lace - citrus and floral aroma that explodes out of the glass, with some grapefruit pulp tanginess and underlying caramel malt - nice, bracing bitterness up front, which returns in the finish, bookending the experience - in between, biscuity malts come to the fore briefly, and some earthy citrus rinds/pulp - a very mild caramel sweetness keeps the hops in check - slightly tangy and quite spicy on the back end - well done.

pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Golden color. Bitter nose, but with a subtle toasty background. The flavor is really balanced between piney hops and great malt. Very crisp and clean. The finish is long and bitter.
