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.

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 (5796) - 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.

lamas (1620) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2007
20.9 oz. bottle courtesy of agl108. Pours a rich copper/amber with a nicely sized light-tan head. The aroma features plenty of citrusy notes. Lots of the usual grapefruits, pine needles and lemons. Medium-bodied. Very nice balance taste-wise. An ample caramel malt backbone keeps everything from being too one-sided. Pretty dry finish. Solid stuff.

JPDIPSO (6000) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Dark golden to light amber in color. Moderate light beige head. Light caramel and mild grapefruit aromas. Thin malt and caramel flavors in the beginning. Thins out even more in the middle and finish with pine and citric hops taking control. This is seriously thin to me. Some perfume/floral hops are also in the mix. Much a light APA. Needs more malt depth for me.

mabel (8652) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2007
[763-20071019] Bottle (w/ jerc). Boozy chocolate grape aroma with grainy malt and a hint of tang. Hazy, brown red body with a medium-lasting foamy almond head. Heavy Belgian doughy yeast flavour has a bit of sourdough, potato vegetable and a hint of seaweed. Medium-full body is thick. Interesting, hides alcohol well; perhaps even better when cold.

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!
