Had on tap at Buddha bar- pours a murky orange/wooden color with almost no head, retains a ring around the edge and modest rings of lacing.

Smell is certainly hoppy but also has a malt sweetness and resin that I find present in all mikkeller ipas. The hops smell a little like a forest.

Taste is also similar to other mikkeller ipas that I've had- a similar maltiness that almost taste of menthol. moderately bitter, forest-y hops. Nothing memorable about this one except that I don't like it.

Mouthfeel is fine- medium body, a good dose of resin, and finishes slightly sweet. Not a fan of this beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish snifter

A- pours a very cloudy, dark shade of amber with a three finger offwhite head. The head sticks around for awhile, and the lacing is very solid and puffy

S- piney aroma coming out of this one....pretty mild, not that appealing actually

T- pine, and citrus, but the flavors are very weak and not meshing very well. The aftertaste is very grassy. Eh

M- pretty thick....almost syrupy. Disappointing

O- typical Mikkeller single hop. Not great, not awful...just there.

Poured at The Top in Gainesville. Murky brownish pour and small white head. Malty aroma, caramel, bit of hops and pine. Flavor follows with big caramel malt notes, candy brown sugar, not much hop presence. Slightly dry and yet a bit heavy on the palate. Interesting but won’t return to this one.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark Brown-orange opaque and hazy body. The beer pours with a yellowish-white head, tiny bubbles and decent head retention. Should be less hazy with better retention.

S: Extremely faint nose with some discernible caramel and citrus notes.

F: A nice amount of bittery hoppiness hits the palette first with some nice pine and citrus notes backed up by light malt and alcohol.

M: The beer rolls on the palette with medium body and a carbonation that compliments the hoppy character

Overall this is a good IPA but nothing too amazing.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Copper-amber pour with a two finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Surprisingly subdued, earthy nose with hints of pine and caramel but not much else. Overall a little on the musty side. Thankfully the taste was a bit of an improvement. Tangy, bitter hops up front along with hints of pine and grass, all nicely complemented by a solid caramel malt base, with just a touch of orange peel. Medium carbonation on the mouthfeel and just a bit syrupy with a subtle bitter hop finish. Columbus are some of my favorite hops so I was a bit disappointed with this one. Pretty run-of-the-mill for me...

Beer served on draft at Churchkey with 18 others. This one was a middle of the road IPA.

Beer is red to orange and clear with low carbonation, a thin white head, some lacing on the glass. Looks good.

Aroma is sweet with only minor hop influence, floral, a little piny. Mostly alcohol and malt.

The beer has a medium body, dry finish, surprisingly dryer than the others, the dryness helps to pick out the bitterness, moderately bitter. Difficult to dissect out the hops from all the sweetness but it is there. Eh.

3.48/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy amber colour with a foamy off-white head. Fair head retention.

Citrussy and a little tannic tea. Not bad at all but not all that exciting either.

Sweet malt with some citrus. Lots of co-humulone and bitterness. A little earthy. Quite nice on the whole.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. A simple mouthfeel.

A straightforward and somewhat uninteresting IPA. The hop just isn't that good by itself.

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

Quite cloudy but without the hefty sediment. Nice copper color. Thin white frothy head, good lacing.

Light earthy, fruity aroma.

Hop flavor seems to last a bit longer than the Sorachi Ace version. Bitterness is also even and smooth. Doesn't have the interesting character of SA, but a good standard multipurpose hop.
