3.06/5  rDev -16.4%
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. (511 characters)

A: Pours dark golden with a thick white foam head that takes a while to dissipate

S: Fairly clean hop aroma that allows for a slight bit of malt character come through

T: Clean malt flavor that ends in a earthy bitterness that is very pronounced

M: Very light bodied, smooth and maybe a touch over carbonated

O:Interesting amount of bitterness with no aroma offered (369 characters)

Cap numbered 8181103! Served from bottle into Stone nonic. Poured yellow-orange with a two finger off-white head that subsided to half a finger slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, citrus, citrus hop, and grapefruit hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, grapefruit, citrus hop, and grapefruit hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. I went into this one not really expecting too much as most of the others I had prior were not so good. However, this one surprised me and was pretty tasty. The grapefruit character in this one definitely saved it for me for sure. Glad this showed up in both the flavor and aroma on this one. Definitely one of the better offerings in the series for sure. (820 characters)

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

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a coppery color and a mostly clear consistency. There was an inch and a half of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, citrus, and some malt.

T: Tasted of some citrus (grapefruit), hops, grain, and a bit of malt. The hops (and grain for that matter) content was somewhat harsh, but still allowed for a decent flavor.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a grainy finish. Medium-bodied.

O: in spite of some deficiencies, this beer is still a solid piece of brewing. (546 characters)

Bottle poured into duvel chalice.

Amber color, same color as the warrior and simcoe ones but this had quite a bit more head ( 1 inch ), could have been in the pour I guess.

Smell - I get a lot of citrus, the citrus dominates, grapefruit & orange, most aroma of the 3 that I tasted

Taste - bitter hops, piney bitterness.

Overall - great taste, not very complex, but I enjoyed it (381 characters)

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. (516 characters)

I had this at ChurchKey where they had 10+ Mikkeller single hop IPAs. It was interesting to taste the characteristics of this hop without interference from other hop types. This hop had awesome floral aroma with a light citric acid flavour.

A: Orange color and 3 mm head that fades to good lacing. 4

S Flowery; hoppy; sweet. 4.5

T: Acidic citric flavour. I can imagine this being nice when combined with other hops, but was a little too strong by itself. 3.5

M: Pretty thick and reasonably carbonated. 4

O: Lovely smell and a decent flavour. 3.5 (550 characters)

11.2oz bottle alongside Magnum and Mt. Hood.

Pours a deep clear amber with a huge fluffy beige head that recedes quickly to a soapy collar and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is mostly citrus though it's not overpowering. There are some oranges and a bit of pine. The caramel malts are evident as well. This is probably my favorite nose of the three I've got in front of me.

The taste is sweet, pleasantly so with a combination of orange rinds and pineapples as well as the biscuity malts. Light bitterness in the finish.

Te mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation, maybe a tad too much, but still a solid body.

This is one of the better hop series beers for me as the citrus is well represented. The best part is the smoothness and drinkability as the hops are flavorful but not overly bitter. Goes down very easily. (846 characters)
