look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Pours a dark orange, with a two finger thick head with medium retention. There's a LOT of yeast chunks floating around. Intentional or not, this isn't precisely appealing.

S - Earthy, woody scent, with a hint of malty sweetness and definitely some yeast.

T - Taste matches the nose. Earthy, woody, malty (much more than I expected), with a hint of vanilla.

M - Smooth, even considering the yeast chunks.

O - Aside from the appearance, an enjoyable IPA, though the balance is off in places.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

11.2 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My eighth beer from the Mikkeller Single Hop series. My bottle lists a 6.80% abv rather than the 6.90% abv listed on BeerAdvocate. Expectations are high based upon my experience with the others.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Woah, pours about five to six fingers of giant towering beige froth. Body is a dark burnt sienna orange / borderline mahogany color. Looks like all the others, except for the massive collection of dark yeast chunks sinking to the bottom of the glass. Definitely off-putting and clearly this much chunky yeast sediment wasn't intentional. Some nice streaks of lacing. Doesn't look bad, aside from the disturbing amount of yeast chunks.

S - Smell isn't off or strange in any way, despite the ridiculously muddled appearance. Smells of earthiness, twigs, wood, cream, vanilla, hint of yeast in the nose. Smells a lot like all the others.

T - Taste isn't noticeably off or ruined in any way either. Tastes much like the others. Earthiness, dried leaves, creamy vanilla, wood, caramelized malts.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy, with some mild bitterness and green apple skin stickiness lingering on the palate.

Overall, not too much different than any of the others, aside from the entirely nauseating appearance which, I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt, was an accident. Please excuse me while I go find my strainer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle brought down from NYC. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 11.2 oz. bottle with no freshness information into a TBBC pint glass.

A: Pours a fairly dark copper, hazy to almost opaque. A low amount of visible carbonation still leads to a one-finger white head.

S: Bready and toasted caramel sweet malts, some floral and citrus pith hop aromas, and a bit of sweet booze.

T: Malt forward, with toasted bready malts, caramel and toffee, with a moderate citrus pith and pine hop presence. Moderate bitterness in the hang.

M: Average body and mouthfeel for style. Moderate carbonation sensation, and the alcohol seems more noticeable than it should be.

O: This wasn't horrible by any stretch, but I won't have another. More malt forward than expected with way less of the nice Citra flavors that you would want in this beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a hazy orange with a 1-inch thick off-white head with some floaties and leaves splotchy lace.

N: Pungent and juicy grapefruit and tangerine with some spicy notes along with yeast and malt.

T: Citrus shines through a floral canopy of hop leaves.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Semi-dry and bitter finish.

O: Straight forward single hop citra. Bottle from cooler and must be fresh.
