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.

Hazy, cloudy beer. Malt assails you on the aroma. Malt driven with flavors of pine and caramel. Not my kind of IPA.

Acquisition: 02.25.2015 - Bottle Bar, Frankford Avenue - PHL 19125

(Appearance) OK. Deep amber / red color. Bottle conditioned, nice head retention with good lacing. Cloudy, chill haze, yeast? I was carefully pouring this beer and still caught a lot of yeast.

(Aroma) Below Average. I think this is an old sample. Their is very little hop aroma, and the malt that is breaking through isn't happy to be there? A little candy sugar, maybe Amarillo?

(Taste) OK. This beer taste better that it looks and smells due to the malt character. Round, candy, belgian fruitiness, sweet. Nice weight and with soft carbonation.

(Overall) OK. I wouldn't take too much from my review, I think this beer has waited a while to be drank? I bet it is fairly decent when its fresh. I do take issue with label representation. The beer is named GREEN GOLD, I taste a home-breweques belgian ale. I have no issue with breaking style but the beer seams confused. Maybe Mikkeller thought he needed to walk the belgian beer drinkers pallet slowly? Speculation, but It's neither a good American-Style India Pale Ale as stated, or a Belgian Ale.

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.
