On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a slightly hazy copper amber color with good head retention and lacing. The seems kind of odd for an IPA, with cerial, light sweet malt, light brown sugar and some citrus. Flavors replicate the nose in this very sweet IPA. The beer also has some noticeable heat in the finish, which only further detracts from the beer's drinkability. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the beer is fairly smooth, but otherwise, I cannot say I'm very impressed with this one. Drinkability is not very good, with the sweetness and noticeable alcohol making me look for the dump bucket. Very glad I only ordered a sample size glass.

Had it as draft at the Mikkeller Bar Seoul.

A: Offish orangy color for the body with a big head of about two fingers with a careful pour. The head is fairly yellowish. Good head retention with lacing

Ar: Fresh aroma. Piney, fruity, & floral. Hint of maltiness

T: Follows the aroma. A bit malty with bready caramel and noticeble yeastienss on the tongue. Still very hoppy and piney.

M: Smooth on the mouth. Creamy and I should say easy-drinking.

Aftertaste: Bitter but predominatly sweet.

The pour is amber in color with a white head. The nose is fairly malty/malt forward. Lots of caramel and toffee with some mild citrus and pine, maybe some brown sugar. The flavor is also on the sweet side as well. Caramel and toffee for the most part. Some citrus peel, pine, and light grass hop notes. Only a mild bitterness.

A - Poured out a hazy, golden orange color with a two-finger, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled strongly of pine and floral notes. Some sweet caramel aromas, too.

T - It tasted very bitter and spicy hot. The piney hop bite blasted away any sweet caramel flavors.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This beer was just too unbalanced. I don't think I'll go back to this one.

Great darker color for a flowery smelling IPA. Poured with a nice amount of head that hangs onto the glass slightly. A little heavy in the mouth but not too much. Has a pretty good taste/flavor. Lingers a little longer than I would like and has a heavy alcohol feel. IMO this is an average IPA at best.

With thanks to the staff @ IBS.

Pours a brown-red. Good head/lacing.

Aroma holds a massive dose of melony Simcoe? Lavender, lemon and white chocolate.

Taste is big on orangey malt. Get a big dose of sugar and a big dose of semi-bitter hop oils floating around in here.

Mouthfeel is really thick and viscous.

Definite East Coast IPA. Just a lot of sweetness in this one and while enjoyable I find it oddly slightly cloying- still good.

A - Ruby hue with a nice fluffy off-white head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Citrus, hops and a bit of alcohol. Nothing amazing here.

T - Hop bitterness engulfed in a semi-syrupy composition. Likely coming from the caramel malts. Nothing crazy going on, just some acute simplicity.

M - Medium body with fair carbonation.

O - Kind of a plain IPA, expected more from Mikkeller. I can say the BrewDog beers were just plain better than all in this series I have had. I do not think I will ever purchase another beer under this name. There are just too many great beers that I would be giving the middle finger for another taste something that is, frankly, mediocre.

Green Easter pours a turbid orange edged garnet with billowing tan colored head. Big clump lays claim to the middle of the glass, which is coated in a web of chunky lace. Smell: whiff of grapefruit, soft red apple, caramel, sweet orange slices. Muddled and balanced, like an NC ipa. Taste: also confused or just not very good... caramel, lots of it, cut by a thin bitterness...pith, resin, borderline medicinal. Great label, not great beer.

12 ounce bottle was a gusher. Poured nice fine head which lasted a few and laced the glass a bit. Very dark for an IPA and cloudy. Yeast character and astringency overwhelms what ever hop flavor there may have been leaving a lingering unpleasant taste and mouth feel. Given the gushing this may have been a bad bottle but what was there was not promising.

No thanks to rudzud

Light fizzy head little lacing legs hazy bright orange color.
Nose ok, some citrus fruit faint tropical, but also grassy herbal sticky hop, fruity, earthy, grassy, little funky thing, lemony citrus.

Taste sweet malt with grassy toasted straw malt, into big grassy spicy chewy hops, little briny, mild booze and sweet malt, super bitter. Finish terrible briny spicy bleh hops.

Mouth is med bod little booze and still thin somehow, decent carb.

Overall very poor choice in hops.

pours a nice dark gold/copper color with a nice head to it.

citrus based nose with some copper tones, caramel, navel oranges, and some sort of oxidative tones

full bodied with a real good feel. Some hoppy tones along with tones of caramel, oranges and copper

this is okay. There is an oxidative flavor that I couldn't really get over. A solid IPA but not much more

Best by 5/20/17.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of candied citrus zest, grapefruit juice, earth, and pine needle aromas. Taste is much the same with candied citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice mix of citrus and earthy hop qualities all around.

Serving type: can.
