A: Hazy orange with an off white head.

S: Tangerine, pineapple in the nose. Smells delicious.

T: Tastes more like a pale ale, than an IPA, but that makes it all the more refreshing on a hot summer day, with pineapple and orange notes.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: A damn good IPA. Far better than the farmhouse version. Delicious!

A: into a tulip, perfect amber body, few fingers of off-white head left messy sheets of lace

S: lots of bold hops, floral and herbal over the sweet pale malts - suggestions of dry fields and tart yeasts amid the bright hops and fresh malts

T: malt body was a bitter/butterscotchy sweet, some caramel, maybe even peachiness; lots of bittering and toasty hops, seemed like a pretty good mix of citric and pine suggestions, as well as having an earthy, almost dank character

M: has a slight chew to it, nicely bittering and drying, medium-light body but initially full on the tongue, crisp and effervescent

O: an IPA I would have never bought if not for the Invasion Farmhouse IPA I loved (from Mikkeller). Outstanding IPA with a slight musky edge. Fans of the style, Belgian and American versions, should definitely give it a try.

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

A - Light haze. Nice, deep peach orange-brown. Fine white head settles low but has great retention once it gets there.

S - Sweet honey, thick malt, tangerine, white raisins, earthy wood, bitter florals.

T - Great woody hop flavor with a solid bitter backbone. Honey, mellon, and sweet tangerine keep things in balance. Bitters linger through a long, malty-sweet finish.

M - Sharp bitters cut through a thick and creamy mouthfeel.

O - Exceptionally bitter-forward flavor profile, even for the style.

Not bad at all. More malt coming through then most of the IPA I usually prefer, but I welcome change

A: Copper color, with a little head.

S: Not much to report here. The right smells were there.

T: Bitterness, hops, malt. Again, more malt then I normally expect. More yeast too, but I've come to expect that from European IPAs. Caramel, sweet bread, dried fruit type of flavors.

M: I would of liked it to have had cleaner feel. Thicker then most ales, but not syrupy /sticky like a doppelbocks.

O: My second brew from Mikkeller. I liked it. Will not buy this particular ale again, but will definitely continue to try more from the brewer.

If this beer was a metal band it would be Frightmare. Classic in style, but just enough unique. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PXQA77tEt8
