POLK (2219) - Hrning, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2011
Nice strong scent and taste of American hops, right bitter and persistent aftertaste. One could well believe this is an IPA. Very nice beer. Should probably not be saved for as long that there says on the bottle. ( But you can probably not :-) )

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 750ml bottle, cavedirect. Fresh citrus and pine, but more in the aroma than in the taste. Light and refreshing, tangy and quite a tingle on the tongue. Very American in style. *Re-rated 31.7.12. Much more full-bodied this time around. Immediate warmth on the tongue and in the chest, big floral finish, lingering aftertaste and the brettanomyces very obvious.

Aroma crisp, clean, soft , light softness with slight sourness. Clean base. Neat. 8-
Appearance mid hazed amber with large creamy big top. Good lace.
Flavor and Palate : medium plus bodied, citrus tart-sweet character. Smooth , forward made, none of barbaric roughness here. Some peppery spice hints at finish. Quiet nice.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2016 @ tap at mikkeller bar. Pours Amber with a white head. Aroma of pine, grape, some sweet nuances from the malt and some bready notes. Flavour is fruity with citrus, grapefruit, orange. Also some hops and some caramel in there.

Sammy (11655) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2011
Cloudy yellow with off-white three inch head, looks great. Hop aromas are terrific, medium mouthfeel, very lacey. Citra hop taste, orange. A full bitterness, lots of hops. A tad of sourness-astringency. Kens bottle from the private order.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
Orangy brown in colour. Light lacing head. Smells like a typical impact. Light, smooth, citrus. Thick and smooth mouth feel. Hoppy and lightly bitter. All the good of an impact with minimal bitterness. Really easy to drink. 8% really? Cant tell. Would recommend to any hop head, all the taste with minimum bitterness.

Brix (660) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2011
Tasted 2011-01-13. Pours semi-clear orange with yellow teinted white head. Grassy hop aroma. Very powerful. Bretts present. It generally tastes very fresh and hoppy. The finish is bitter. Very bitter. A little too bitter. Prolly unpleasantly so for some. For many. I just find a bit annoying. Its actually not the bitterness per say, that I mind. Its that very last impression of the beer. The finish of the finish. That very last split second of taste is not just bitter. Its harshly unpleasant. It only lasts for a short while, but its so anoying, I hafta drown it with another sip. And then it takes itself from there. Ill live.

BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2010
09 bottle courtesy of Sleepylopes. Opening side by side with an 09 Alive. This one may have been over-aged. High drinkability, well balanced. Has the stale dry hop back end dominated my palate for 30 seconds following swallow. Auburn, orange flavor, minimal light brown head. First few sips better tab the last few.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Received in a trade with Savvy1982. Thanks again!! Pours clear amber orange with a large beige head that leaves a nice ring of foam. Aroma of tart berries such as raspberry and blueberry, honeysuckle, lemony, herby and floral hops. Taste is a nice combination of the yeast and hops, not as funky as aroma, quite bitter. Finish is dry with a moderate bitterness. Thick texture, medium carbonation.

I didnt think it was possible but Mikkeller have made a beer I dont really care for. Bottle from our Mes again. Poured an amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma is nice enough, usual Mikkeller-ly tasty hops, orange, quite malty. Flavour is a little fruity, peach, tangerine with more malts and tea flavours. Not a bad beer but did nowt for me.
