look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A - Pours a dark, murky, orangish brown color with two finger head. Lacing clings to glass.

S - Bready malt, heavy pine, citrus, sweet hop juice.

T - Starts off with a strange malty taste followed by a somewhat smooth yet bitter wave of bitter, mouth drying hops. Flavor is sweet hop juice similar to higher abv IIpa's.

M - Medium to heavy. Hop oils seem to coat the entire mouth.

O - Much too sweet for a single ipa. The bitterness is there but that sweet tasting hop juice is just too much for this style. Drinks closer to 8 or 9% abv. As with many Mikkeller beers this one at 50 cents an ounce is just overpriced.

From Mikkeller website: The second IPA from Mikkeller is not afraid of living up to its name. The hops are aromatic, American and aggressive, and leaves you no doubt about what you're enjoying. Cheers! Ingredients : Water, malt (pilsner, munich and caramunich), flaked oats, hops (simcoe, cascade and amarillo) and ale yeast.

Beautiful label on the bottle. Pours a dirty orange/brown with an INSANE head. Without the head this would be a 1.5 appearance. Major lacing on the glass and foam on top the entire time. The nose is weak with the malts and some minimal grapefruit aromas dominating. Taste is caramel and malts up front, the second act is some bitterness on the sides of the tongue and a tiny alcohol burn, and a pretty dry finish but some bitterness lingers. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy but light, very smooth. This is more in the east coast style and fans of DFH 90 Minute would enjoy this. People that prefer a west coast style will be disappointed.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a slightly hazy copper amber color with good head retention and lacing. The seems kind of odd for an IPA, with cerial, light sweet malt, light brown sugar and some citrus. Flavors replicate the nose in this very sweet IPA. The beer also has some noticeable heat in the finish, which only further detracts from the beer's drinkability. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the beer is fairly smooth, but otherwise, I cannot say I'm very impressed with this one. Drinkability is not very good, with the sweetness and noticeable alcohol making me look for the dump bucket. Very glad I only ordered a sample size glass.

The pour is amber in color with a white head. The nose is fairly malty/malt forward. Lots of caramel and toffee with some mild citrus and pine, maybe some brown sugar. The flavor is also on the sweet side as well. Caramel and toffee for the most part. Some citrus peel, pine, and light grass hop notes. Only a mild bitterness.

A - Poured out a hazy, golden orange color with a two-finger, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled strongly of pine and floral notes. Some sweet caramel aromas, too.

T - It tasted very bitter and spicy hot. The piney hop bite blasted away any sweet caramel flavors.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This beer was just too unbalanced. I don't think I'll go back to this one.

Great darker color for a flowery smelling IPA. Poured with a nice amount of head that hangs onto the glass slightly. A little heavy in the mouth but not too much. Has a pretty good taste/flavor. Lingers a little longer than I would like and has a heavy alcohol feel. IMO this is an average IPA at best.

With thanks to the staff @ IBS.

Pours a brown-red. Good head/lacing.

Aroma holds a massive dose of melony Simcoe? Lavender, lemon and white chocolate.

Taste is big on orangey malt. Get a big dose of sugar and a big dose of semi-bitter hop oils floating around in here.

Mouthfeel is really thick and viscous.

Definite East Coast IPA. Just a lot of sweetness in this one and while enjoyable I find it oddly slightly cloying- still good.
