This is a great beer.

Could use some more hops; but on the whole - I love it.

I swear it had a stronger flavour a couple years ago when I first tried it (on tap and in the bottle) ?

Cloudy rust and amber colored pour with a two-finger off-white head. Big aroma of sour fruit. Very nice mildly sour taste that has elements of tropical fruits and grapefruit with a good malt backing. Also, has a bit of spice, funk, and yeasty flavors. Finishes with a lightly bitter and spicy flavor.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Carmine/rufous body with a crisp isabelline/snow head.

Aroma: Blackcurrants, cherries, raspberries, quince, and a slight 'peppery' spice undertone.

Taste: Much like the aroma, but with what I would best describe as...imagine grapefruit not as a fruit, but rather as a wild nut/berry hybrid - that comes like a tidal wave as it goes down.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, tart, refreshing.

Overall: Again, Mikkeller gets it right with 'USAlive!'. Should you come across this, get it, as you will not be disappointed.
