4.65/5  rDev +20.8%

A: Orange and brown in color with a cream colred head. Head is thick and pours at least a couple of fingers. Head lingers well - still has a top 30+ minutes after pour and thick lacing on the glass walls.

S: Over the top grass and pine hops. It catches you off guard up front but is a really nice twist on the aroma.

T: Good quality hop flavor - again grassy, earthy hops forward, with a bit of a malt balance on the back.

M: Medium body but really nice on the tongue - ample carbonation.

O: Really well done. Hope to find this one again. Would love to have really, really fresh but suspect this at least a couple of months old by the time it reached the states.

4.63/5  rDev +20.3%

A: 1.5 finger thick head with excellent lacing and retention.

S: very aromatous. Lots of earthy, citrus, pine hops. Incredibly complex aroma.

T: Very nice pine hop aroma that isn’t overpowering but just right. Light citrus with floral and earthy notes.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation. The lingering pine aftertaste is perfect. Not too sharp and very flavorful.

Overall: This is an excellent IPA but the amount of hops is on the lower end yet this one still seems to have a full flavor and aroma.

The color is clouded deep amber with red hints, a high tan head that settles slowly, some lacing and curtains.

The smell is exactly like a freshly opened tin can of grape-fruit juice. Some green gooseberries.

The taste is also perfect grape-fruit juice sweetened with fructose

Medium carbonation, a good body and soft fluid, a warm and dry finish.

Nearly a perfect grape-fruit-juice-beer, good stuff!

Presentation: Poured into a pint glass from a growler purchased at Green's off Piney Grove in Columbia, SC.

A: Beautiful dark orange-reddish amber color. Slightly cloudy with a light tan head that leaves moderate lacing.

S: Mainly citrus and pine hop nose with some malty sweet scents. Almost has a slight English Ale scent. Must be the malts?

T&M: Incredibly balanced. Some roughness from all those hops, but the taste is solidly hoppy with a very good malt backbone to shave off some of the sharpness of the hops. Very tangy and dry on the finish.

Very good overall. I guess it's a pretty good job for those Eruopeans trying to make an American product. Definitely a slight variation on the Amer. IPA with a quality, original flavor.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Cooper in color with blonde highlights and a thick, frothy, off-white, three-finger head that last for awhile leaving a great trail down the whole glass before finishing with a wispy lace.

S: Wonderful strong earthy hoppy aroma dominates this beer from beginning to end.

T: Hop flavor jumps out of my glasses and punches me in the face. Love the full bodied citrusy hop taste. Good amount of alcohol masked by the dominant hop flavor.

M: Full body and medium carbonation.

O: First-class IPA – wouldn’t expect anything less from Mikkeller. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

I have only sampled a few of the Mikkeller beers, but "Green Gold" truly tastes delicious for a hop head like myself.

The beer is a bit cloudy and a dark wooden hue that looks like many hop filled concoctions.

The smell is great, pine + citrus makes the subtle afterglow of the beer notes resonate appropriately on your tongue.

The taste follows suit with a casual completeness of hops and sweet flavors.

The mouthful of beer is bitter, but not overpowering for the beer drinkers in the room.

Overall, you will want to drink more!

4.35/5  rDev +13%

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Freshness date says 2/3/12.

Appearance - Dark orange in color, light baige soapy 3 finger head. The lacing is as thick as it gets. Lots of sediment & carbonation, this one looks amazing.

Smell - Mild hoppy smell, very sweet. Citrusy & piney hops.

Taste - This one reminds me of a toned down, sweeter I Beat U. Very balanced, job well done.

Mouthfeel - Smooth & dry.

Drinkability - I could drink a few of these, I wish it came in 4 packs.

2 Mikkeller Green Gold 11.2 oz. bottles purchased at Capone's. Brewed with simcoe, amarillo and cascade hops at DeProef. $8/bottle.

Appearance: a dark peach color, or sort of orange. Nice thick beige head. Not clear.

Smell: fresh orange and grapefruit juice.

Taste: I don't know..it simply tastes like alcoholic fresh squeezed juice to me..awesome..there's a huge, meaty bitterness in the middle, and finally a numbing butterscotch taste at the end of the sip left on your tongue.

Mouthfeel: bitterness lasts a while which I like!

Overall: It definitely reminds me of Stateside IPA although not quite as yummy.
