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.
