2.4/5 rDev -40.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: A very tiny amount of white head (can be typical of a beer this high in alcohol) and a rich amber orange color with little to no haze.
Smell: Nothing too powerful on the nose. Subtle hints of floral and piney hops with some lingering caramel.
Taste: Two things stand out immediately in the taste: alcohol and acidic bitterness. Coupled with that are some hints of pineyness and subtle burnt caramel. Quite disappointed in the flavor. While Mikkeller in my experience is usually not amazing, it has never been below average... until now.
Mouthfeel: Sharp carbonation (in my opinion too much) and light to medium bodied.
Can't say that I'd recommend this beer to anyone. I'm a huge fan of IPAs and Imperial IPAs and this one fell short of being even acceptable. Brewdog facilities and/or staff must have done something to this beer because I just looked back at my rating of Mikkeller's I Beat You and it got close to a 4.

On Draft at Meddlesome Moth. Served in a tulip glass.
A- Copper. Little head that dissapeared quickly. Very little lacing. Clear as day
S - I'm getting caramel and citrus
T - Candied sugar and bitterness blend well
M - Smotth. No alcohol burn
This tasted better the more it warmed up. I'd definitely let it sit a bit before drinking.
