A: Deep orange/amber color with a nice fluffy off white head, Sine rising carbonation and decent lacing. Pretty good clarity as well

S: The initial smell is of heavy pine and heavy floral notes. Some lighter grassy notes and a touch of grapefruit (but not much at all) These is also quite a bit of sweetness present as well

T: Pine and grapefruit bitterness upfront. A mild floralness is noticeable along with some sweetness in the finish.

M: Pretty nice body and creaminess but there is some heat present

D: I dont think i would take the time to drink this one again. Its not bad and by no means close to a drain pour but it didnt really have anything special going on either

A glowing orange pour, this looked sexy. 1/3" white head. Aroma drops all kinds of hops, mint, pine, citrus, grapefruit, caramel.

Taste, super bitter, is this 100ibu territory? Probably. A lot of different hop bitterness and flavors still going on. Plenty of crystal malt on this one. Wish I could try this with less age on it but it comes from halfway around the world I think.

Its good, but the price is such that I doubt I will be making a return voyage to this. Hides the alcohol well.

Dark apricot colored pour with a minimal off-white head. Strong hoppy smell with a hint of booze. Taste is syrupy with resin and tropical fruit upfront. Also has a slightly sweet edge with a caramel flavor that carries through to the finish, along w/ the boozy flavor.

I don't know if I got an old bottle or what, but this seems to be a recurring theme for mikkeller IPAs that I buy. More malt than hops. I love most of their stuff. This is A decent beer still but would like to try it fresh.

This must have been old because it was a lot maltier than it should have been.
