Poured to a pokal glass.

A: The body is amber with some opaquenes. The head is white, one and a half finger thick and shows some good retention. Lots of lacing.
S: Not sure if this aroma is the result of not drinking this IPA while it was fresh but the aromas are very very mild of pine, fruity aromas tending for citrus and some hops. This beer is not that much aromatic.
T: The taste shows some toffee, some pine, not that much citrus even though they're present. In the end, hops and barley are strong.
M: Body is medium to medium high. Carbonation is *perfect*. Bitterness should be a lot tougher but it's very mild.
O: This beer should have an aromatic profile that would speak a lot more to the drinker since it's an IPA. The taste is very faited but probably due to not being fresh. Would like to drink this right out of a fresh keg. It could be interesting.

i like that mikkeller is starting to put more of the hoppy beers into cans, this has been needed for awhile, especially the ones made over seas, they just travel so much better in this format. stoked to see this one in a can, they look cool too. its a yeasty northwestern type, bitter and piney, very substantial on the grain front, even a little copper colored from some crystal malt, and sudsy and frothy in the glass. aroma of fresh cut lumber, pine needles, bitter grapefruit and some yeast thats english and bready for what mikkeller is calling american ipa. i get wet woo up front, heavy alpha acid hops, and the yeast, not as stateside as they set it up to be, but so much fresher than any of the bottles of hoppy beer they have had around lately, and better than anything else they have put in a can lately (arh hvad notwithstanding). simcoe maybe, centennial, amarillo on the nose, a fair few strains all loaded in together. its good ipa, not the best of the mikkeller hoppy stuff, but an affordable one for once, and fresher tasting in the can. definitely mikkeller too, i could pick this out of a hundred beers as theirs, maybe the combination of yeast and ibus, but this is very very classic for these guys.

12 oz can. Pours clean amber color with thick puffy head, great retention and sticky lacing. Sweet candy malt aroma. Malt forward taste, some ripe fruit, piney bitterness. Dry finish. Decent IPA, on the sweet malty side.

330 ml bottle ordered from Csakajosor.

Served straight from the fridge in a 0,5 l IPA glass.

Look: Murky amber, deep orange colour, nice head with decent retention, lacing is fine

Smell: notes of resin, pine, orange, interesting malt character in the background

Taste: does follow the smell in my opinion, balanced with a weird malt sweetness, but it is okay

Feel: medium body, sweet aftertaste accompanied by a bitterness boom, i like this balance but it is only my point, active carbonation

Overall: it is worth trying, i am keen on this experimental approach of Mikkeller. I will try the single hop batches in order to be able to improve my hop detection. Nice brew.

Smell is floral/herbs, malt, a slight bit of alcohol, and pine resin. The taste is a pretty close match to the smell with big malt sweetness, citrus, pine, and a fairly bitter finish. The mouthfeel and taste are much more reminiscent of a double IPA. A little too sweet for my palate.

dated 13/01/17 ... whish I knew how fresh it was!

appearance is darkish golden orange with a fat flufy head. great retention and lacing.

upon cracking the can I got a big floral and apple scent. in the glass earthyness, pine, and a sweetish malt. apple note coming out as it warms.

taste is much the same, interestingly earthy, fruity, and malty at the same time - creating a taste that is really unique compared to the IPAs ive previously tried. perhaps its the yeast?

overall a good IPA that is worth trying
