4.13/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

3.79/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a bit hazy light amber in colour with quite big white head that lasts long. Nice lacing.

Aroma: a lot of tropical fruits, some malt and unfortunately a bit of rust and iron. Wasn't expecting that from Mikkeller.

Taste: grapefruit, mango, orange, maybe a bit of pineapple and again the rust and iron. Average to high bitterness. Good, but not great.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, (too) high carbonation. Was feeling full half the bottle down.

Overall: The rust and iron in aroma and taste ruined this otherwise great beer. Probably just a bad batch, that's all. BB: 29.10.2015 so it's a fresh one. Don't get me wrong, it's good, very good, and you can actually barely taste and smell that iron and rust, but it's there, and it's ruining this beer for me.

3.8/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle, 6.9% ABV. The label is made up to approximate the American flag (in green and gold) with a weird array of single-cell organisms where the stars-as-states should be - I guess that they're meant to represent the American ale yeast.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, bright medium copper amber hue, with four fingers of slowly climbing, puffy, loosely foamy beige head, which leaves some nice thorough broken Swiss cheese lace around the glass as it lazily abates.

It smells of orange, grapefruit, and pineapple rinds, a bit of pine resin, caramel/toffee malt, a soft earthy yeastiness, and a twinge of simmering metallic alcohol. The taste is more fairly bitter, earthy fruit - muddled grapefruit, overripe orange, some hints of black plums - bready caramel malt, tame brewer's yeast, some airborne black pepper, and further piney, leafy hops.

The carbonation is obviously quite active, leading to a subdued frothy character, the body a so-so medium weight, and gamely creamy in its smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the malty sweetness holding up more stringently than any of the fading hops.

This appear to be an American-style IPA, as seen through a wacky Dane's eye, and further coloured via a typically Belgian brew process. While tasty enough, it's not really all that similar to the American standards it espouses, mainly due to the yeast. Worth a try, but not a repeat for me.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass, a very pretty beer, a medium caramel gold colour, really good retention and lacing. Aromas are mostly spicey and hop forward, some nutty malts. A bit of yeast as well adding an interesting dimension. Taste-wise I found this an interesting take on the style, still lots of hops but much less of the grapefruit citrus hopiness, more toward the spicy, zesty, almost earthy profile, balanced together quite well. A very drinkable mouthfeel, some of the coating yeastiness that mikkeller does so well. A very nice beer, I would look to get it again if it were reasonable. An interesting departure rather than an imitation of the american styles, and a rather nice beer in its own right.
