4.05/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours out a slightly darker iced tea color with lots of off-white suds. Very creamy looking small bubbles here.
Smell is more evergreen and mango. Not as grapefruit smelling as the Simcoe. Very mellow and fruity aroma. Just wonderful.
Taste is bitter mostly and not as much flavor as was in the Simcoe. Still this is a great beer. Wish there were more going on here.
Mouthfeel is a bit oily.
Drinkability is just OK.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a Mikkeller goblet.

Cap dated 10/12/10

A: Pours a cloudy, glowing, apricot nectar color. Sitting atop this is a creamy and pillowy light-orange head that, at first, is about three-fingers thick and sports excellent retention & lace-leaving abilities.

S: Very piney. Aromas of fresh pine sap, crushed pine needles, and a hint of grapefruit. Also noticed some earthy yeast and spicy herbal hops.

T: Fresh cut pine bough, pine tar, grapefruit rind, fresh green pine needles, and a bit of floral and/or herbal hoppiness. Loads of white pepper in the finish.

M: Very bitter and dry. Astringent. A tropical fruit sweetness tries to break through but is beaten back by prickly, spicy, pepper. Long peppery finish.

D: I really liked this. Completely different than the Simcoe. Delicious pepper and pine.

A - This beer poured a cloudy golden amber color that produced a fluffy white head that had good retention and left a great lacing around the side of the glass

S - The aromas that were produced by this beer were just the hops, a lot of citrus and pine hop scents

T - This beer had a great mix of earthy grains, crisp grapefruit and orange citrus notes, and bitter splash of hoppiness across the back of the tongue

M - The mouthfeel of this beer was a light to medium body and a moderate amount of carbonation

D - This was another score from Mikkeller, a single hop IPA that really pleases the hopheads, but the casual beer drinker might need a little practice before they step up to the plate on this one

Thanks Tom for sharing this 11.2oz bottle that was stamped 10/12/10.

Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with a small to averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, floral, some skunky pot, pine, and earthy. Tastes of pine, earthy, some citrus, and lightly spiciness in the finish.

Purchased this 11.2 oz. bottle at Capone's.

Appearance: pours an orange color, very hazy, with the same huge, superfoamy head that a belgian would have.

Aroma: licorice, tart citrus fruits, and a boozey note

Taste: a bitter tea-like tannin note, then piney resin, a brief boozy buttery taste, then spicy pepper, then finally a long wave of hop bitterness. not as fruity as simcoe which is a nice change. an earthier taste, and definitely more resiney.

MouthfeelDrinkability: a spicy long lasting bitterness on the tongue pleases me. Goes down fairly smooth..just too pricey to be able to buy regularly right now.

overall a well brewed IPA, and with a hop variey we haven't seen around here in a while. cheers.
