look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy dark amber, one finger beige (almost orange) head with great retention and really sticky.
Big smelly punch of hops, fruity and sweet, citrus, peach, small tropical notes, but also with a bit of pine. Caramel maltiness, biscuit, flowers, grains, faint dry tobacco.
Taste is a bit complex and has different levels. Starts with malts and sweet perfumey fruits: peach, lime, pomelo, faint mango, maracuja, all covered in caramel. Hops turn a bit grassier, some faint flower petals, and bitter pine resin comes to counter the sweetness, not overpowering it tho. Spices and clearer malts follow towards the finish, pilsener malts, toasted grains, petals, lemongrass, orange peel. Hop oily finish, bitter, but also coated with all the sweet notes from before, nice and balanced mix.
Medium body, oily, kinda low carbonated. Great aftertaste of hop oils, spruce, citrus peel, some lingering fruity sweetness and some dry leafy bitterness. With the tons of flavours going around, you don't have time to feel the alcohol, so it's hidden pretty nicely.
I was a bit skeptical and expected a hop bomb, but this was really tasty and balanced. And cheap for a Mikkeller brew (around here), got it at around 4$.
