3.94/5  rDev +1.5%

Pours a sexy blonde with a sultry redhead in-between.

Straight-up pine bomb here. Alcohol heat is heavy on the nose. Sweet malt underneath.

Warm and bitter with a heap of biscuity malt. It's like an over-hopped English IPA. Quite the opposite of what I thought.

So warm, it dulls the senses. Finishes clean enough, leaving my mouth with nothing but hop residue.

I would sip this with caution. An old-school DIPA in my opinion.

Pours a hazed almost milky looking burnt orange infused gold with no head to speak of,it's unfiltered I know but the lack of head was off to me.Whoo alot of sweet alcohol over top of citric hops,the alcohol is your face here.Alcohol is so predomianat that it makes it kinda hard to get anything else on the palate,some resiny hops come thru as it warms but not enough to overcome the alcohol.This may be a case of a bad bottle,high reviews and the reputation of the brewery makes me think something went awry here.The bottle I have is not quite a drain pour but just isn't right I don't think and/or hope.

Had on tap at Max's Hopfest (from notes, 8/16-18/13)

A: Hazy amber.

S: Sweet and malty.

T: Sweet and rich but unlike with Struise's 15% HopVerdomme, you really taste the 14% here. There is a burn here.

M: Crisp but with miniscule bubbles.

O: Were it not for the burn this would be much better, but as it stands it mostly a malt bomb.

Draft at Northdown, served in a small snifter.

Bright orange with sharp clarity. a thin but lasting layer of white foam on the surface. Minimal spotty lacing, not a shock considering the high abv.

Aroma of caramel malt, orange zest, booze fumes.

Taste is similar, syrupy sweet, bready caramel malt, some light citrus, and a steamroller bitter finish. Very syrupy with low carbonation, a very slow sipper as a result. Took about an hour to finish it. Not bad, just not my thing. Hop flavor seemed second fiddle to the sticky sweet caramel malt and boozy bitterness.

appearance: hazy apricot. surprisingly full head on the given (given a 14% abv). recedes to wisps. it does look inviting.
smell: wow, this buzzes with tropical fruit. i expected razor sharp hops and a sweetness from the heavy abv but this deep fruit is a welcome surprise.
taste: wow again. the taste delivers too. different than the nose. the booze asserts itself but isn't overpowering. Citrusy hops, a strong malt backbone and to a lesser degree than the nose - fruit.
overall: quite an outstanding beer.

11.2oz bottle from Sherlocks (Marietta, GA). 5.98. Brewed with/at Lervig Aktiebryggeri. Served in a Southern Tier snifter.

Pours murky orange with a small quarter finger pale head. A few tiny pods of lace persist despite the high abz.

Smells like vodka soaked tropical fruits.

Taste is a hoppy reflection of the nose. Big bold booze-infused pineapples and oranges, resinous pine, dank onion/garlic, sweet bread, some peppery notes and a good deal of alcohol. I wouldn't call it balanced and I wouldn't say the alcohol is hidden but this is still pretty darn good.

Oily sticky medium full feel with subtle carbonation. Long boozy fruity aftertaste.

Mikkeller creates another intense drinking experience. Boldly hoppy and boozy, I think this has potential to pass into a really nice barleywine someday- I'm just not sure I'd be able to leave one sitting around without drinking it. And whew- just one bottle can make a man know he's been drinkin.

Really nice looking beer cloudy, carbonation present orange creamy color... not much head and doesn't stick around very long. Doesn't appear to be much lacing. Smell is hoppy and the alcohol is definitely apparent. Pine and resin notes for sure. Taste is hops, citrus tastes much like it smells. Alcohol lets you know it's there but at 14% not nearly as much as you'd think. Definitely a sipper. Mouthfeel is creamy and slick goes down pretty easy if you can handle the alcohol burn. First time trying a Mikkeller beer because of the high price point they usually carry 6 bucks for this 11.2 oz beer. Pretty good showing I'll try more of their beers.
