Bottle poured into a shaker pint glass. Orange label (unlike that pictured here) and new to shops here, this must be a second batch or re-release. Similar look to other Mikkeller single hop IPAs, as one might expect: A light bronze hue with a large quantity of frothy off-white head that sits there like dish suds. Aroma is rather malty, toffee and a little chocolate, but with a fresh orange juice and tropical fruit top note: Pineapple, peaches, passion fruit ... As one would expect from this hop. Flavor largely reflects the nose. I am getting guava and bitter orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime, hash oil, currant preserve, mentholated cough drop (although this is not super intense), vitamin C chewables, jasmine tea. Starts with bitter citrus and tropical musk but I am getting strong floral and green flavors late along with a blast of gooseberry. The Citra hops are more than keeping up with the sturdy malt backbone (cf. Bravo, to name one example. See that review). Moderate to full body and a smooth, oily mouthfeel despite making the mouth tingle. Comes off more carbonated than other Mikkeller single hops I've had to date. Not detrimental. Finish is dank and bitter, dominated by the hops. Read this to mean its pretty great in my current mood state. I rarely go back and compare ratings to validate such a call, but right in the here and now this is my favorite Mikkeller single hop IPA. I might taste gooseberry for another week hence. Wonderful.
