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.

Bottle as an extra from tytoanderso. Thanks man!
Pours light coppery clear color with a short lived head. Smell is nicely hopped and earthy and fruity in nature. Noce moderate to strong bitterness and tingly, spicy like fresh hop flavor. Medium to thin bodied and a nice balancing sweetness. Slight astringency as it warms. Overall a well done IPA. Thanks again!

Nice herbal nose. Smells like an American IPA. Nice lacing. Piney, citrus flavor with good hop bite. Best non- American IPA Ive had to this point. Will seek out again.

Mikkeller does it again. Could just as well be a San Diego IPA. Well balanced, not overdone. I would like to take a moment and thank Jimbowood for sending it to Naven, who in turn shared it with me. For a brief moment, I felt felt what it was like to be a rock star. Oh, wait, that was the vicodins. Nonetheless, this was a delicious treat.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle from Jimbowood. Nice hoppy nose, and a smooth piney, resiny flavor. Mikkeller pretty much nailed this style. Not my favorite IPA, but still pretty nice.

20.9 oz bottle. Poured hazy orange with chunky white head that left splotches of lace. Sweet and dry. Very interesting, seems more like a hoppy English pale ale.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Bottle from Kan and served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a clean coppery hue with a huge foamy head and left outstanding lace upon the glass. The aroma has notes of resiny piney citrusy hop along with a base of caramel and biscuity malts. The taste is classic hop driving bitterness and citric twang over a base of pale and sweet malt with a nice dash of clove and pepper upon the finish. Really this is more balanced than expected but that could be due to transport from Europe. I am sure it would be more aggressive and fresher on tap in the homeland. All in all I like this and would easily try again.

Pours a slightly cloudy blush orange with a small, frothy white head. Big, juicy, citrus hops make up most of the aroma, has some grapefruit citrus, and light malt notes as well. Very sharp, fresh tasting hops explode on the palate, with a profound hop bitterness lingering in the finish and on the tongue. The citrus does make an appearance in the aftertaste somewhat, mostly the grapefruit, which leaves some semblance of balance in the flavor characters and helps subdue the heavy biterness. Damn solid IPA.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Upon the pour from the 500ml bottle, it appears a slightly hazy amber with a two-fingered creamy white head that fades leaving a complete blanket of lace upon the glass. Nose has a delicious hop floral aroma, followed quickly by the sweet malt, crisp and clean, mouthwatering. Start has a delectable malt presence, hop bitter at the back, somewhat sweet with the top moderate in feel. Finish has a persistent acidity, the hops powerful and spicy, aftertaste is bone dry and the hops stick to the palate, quite a refreshing beer.

jake65 (3447) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Bottle: Pours a lighter copper with a bit of haze. Nice sized creamy beige head. Fresh hops of citrus and pine dominate the aroma with a moderate malty sweetness. Flavor is hoppy with the malt balance taking out most of the bite. Sweet, caramel, and citrus come to mind. Finished soft, without a hop bite. Palate is full and creamy.
