Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Triple Digit glass.
4/3.75/4.25/3.5/4
Dark murky brown with good head and carbonation.
It smells delightfully evocative of coffee, with distant hints of fruity hops.
Yummmmm. The Citra is faded but still delicious; the coffee is more muted than the first batch. Complex and delicious, with a citrusy bitter endtaste.

I will try just about anything by Mikkeller. Some I've loved, liked or just glad I tried it. Generally I've not felt like I wasted my $$$. This was average for my taste buds. This would be a "glad I tried it" but wouldn't buy again

Oddball 750ml split at a tasting 2 nights back, reviewed from notes.

A - Pours a hazy burnt orange-brown color, a small off-white head fizzes away down to a swirly cap. Bits of lace left.

S - Some decent hoppage, citrus, peach, danky grass, but really not getting any coffee. Some toasted and sweet malts. Kind of just comes as a tame IPA to be honest.

T - Coffee comes through here and seems good, a nice mix of lactose and roasted flavors. Hop profile remains good here as well still bringing earthy, citrus, peach. Unfortunately the flavors don't really mesh well. Some toasted bread there as well.

M - Pretty good body, carbonation is somewhat light but fine, hop bitterness also a little on the light side.

O - I feel like the coffee is definitely nice but just can't be showcased well here, the IPA seems good but not great. Not bad but just doesn't come together at all.

Thanks for sharing Chico1985.

A- 750ml into a snifter with a murky orange apricot hue and a puffy white head. Fair retention with a medium ring depositing a few sheets and spots.

S- Pretty much as the label lists things. Perhaps the hops take a small edge with citrus and stone fruit notes of tangerine, lime and apricot atop medium bold roast beans.

T- Seems a bit more muddled and just not as smooth here. The coffee loses some freshness for me but the hops pick up lending orange, lime, apricot and some resin. Substantial roast from the beans.

MF- Medium bodied a shade lower than that with a silky texture and smooth feeling on the taste buds. Carbonation is medium. A mix of hoppy and coffee light bitters.

Decent but kind of lacks in the actual flavor department. I like the idea but it just seems to be muddled and lacking a truly well blended flavor.
