A pleasant mix of hops. Rich, citrus, complex and worth a try as it will resonate differently with every fan of hoppy beer. Preferred the single hop series myself.Bold orange colour and certain hop aroma. Estimated IBU 65-70. Above average mouthfeel, smooth mouthfeel for what it is and that is amazing craftmanship.

A: 1.5 finger head with good retention on cloudy crimson body. Nice lacing.

S: lots of candied citrus, raisin and maltiness with resin and floral notes.

T: resiny, floral and earthy hop notes finishing with a tangy citrus flavor. Strong malt presence throughout. Peppery notes as well, best noted in the finish.

M: creamy smooth body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: An interesting IPA. Not as good as 19 was. Worth trying.

not sure how fresh this one was, but I still really liked it. its much more like an American pale ale than an ipa to me, with more of that malt balance in there. it pours a hazy orangey bronze color with a pretty sturdy white head. fruity hop aromas rise up from the glass, not bitter at all, but interesting. maybe they call it 10 because that's how many hop varietals are present in this brew? English malts balance the hops in flavor, it tastes like some of the single hop series, familiar, like ive already had this beer somehow. its also lacking in complexity. I wanted this to challenge me like so many other mikkeller beers do, but this isn't like that. its just a basic easy drinking pale ale. good yeast presence though. active carbonation and a medium body, I could drink a lot of these, but for the price I expected a lot more here. again, this bottle might have had a little age on it, but I cannot confirm. ive also heard this is excellent on tap, hopefully ill get to find out someday.

Bought a bottle of this and I Beat yoU at the same time, This was good but I enjoy the other one better.

Regardless this beer poured out as a nice looking copperish gold color, the head was thick and white. Good retention on the glass. The smell of the beer was hoppy but you could pick up some of the malts in there too on this one. The taste was hoppy as well, some nice refreshing citrus flavors and a little pine in there too. The mouthfeel was on the lighter side not really oily at all or thick, had a good amount of carbonation in there. Overall this beer was a good IPA to try, glad I did. I would totally drink it again but if I had to choose this or the I Beat yoU, I'd have to tun this one down.

A: The beer is hazy copper in color and poured with a thin layer of bubbles on the surface. The head slowly dissipated into delicate lacing.
S: There are moderate aromas of citrus hops in the nose--grapefruit stands out in particular--along with some hints of floral hops.
T: Like the smell, flavors of grapefruit stand out in the taste, which also has hints of caramel malts. The hop flavors and associated bitterness are not overpowering.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is relatively easy to drink, although I was expecting a more complex aroma and taste given all of the different types of hops used in the brewing process.

A fantastic IPA that showcases what's best about each individual hop variety.

The pour looks much like each of the Single Hop Series- a hazier than normal copper/amber hue with froathy, dense head formation, great retention and lacing. Aside from the heavy haze, the beer is nearly ideal looking.

Juicy and zesty aromas span the gammot of citrus and tropical fruits to spicy and earthy hops. Throw in a lemony note, winey note, and fresh cut grass for extra measure. Malty caramels and biscuit add enough support for the hops but stop shy of trying to balance them.

Flavors also heavily favor the hops with the vibrant citrus, tropical, spice, grass, earthy notes found in aroma. Sweet malts play a bit more of a role in flavor than aroma but still doesn't interfere with the showcase of hop... at least too much.

Medium-full early as the carbonation seems to amplify the body. But as the carbonation drops, so does the malt textures, allowing the hop dryness, alcohol evaporation, and dry malt character to usher the beer into a deep and lingering bitterness.

My main complaint about the single hops (although the lessons in exclusive hop flavor are fantastic) is that they seem a bit one dimensional. No such threat here- this beer is chocked full of complexity, variety, and flavor.

I wonder why we in Canada get the Danish-only labels...as much as I can discern, this is made with 10 different hops, exactly like a Japanese offering I tried just last week. The rest of the world and their obsession with the base-10 system...

This beer pours a slightly hazy medium copper hue, with a copious amount of foamy, to say the least, off-white head, which eventually settles to reveal some coarse webbed lace. It smells of strong citrus hops - grapefruit and orange, mostly, and a soft biscuity graininess. The taste is bitter, leafy, grapefruit rind citrus up front, followed closely by a subdued biscuity caramel malt sweetness, with the elevated ABV hiding well. The carbonation is on the soft side, the body full, smooth, and a tad creamy. It finishes fairly dry, the citrusy hops pushing the malt out of frame.

Not as much variety evident in the hop profile, given the inputs. Still, a pretty solid IPA, lots of crisp bitterness, only restrained from being over the top by the dutiful malt backbone.

33cl brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a generic hefeweissbier glass in Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a four finger head of decent cream, pretty good thickness, and good retention. Colour is a semitransparent gold.

Sm: Slight floral bittering hops is all me broken nose picks up. All apologies, lads. The aroma is mild in strength.

T: Floral bittering hops are deep and flavourful, if simple. The balance disregards the final 20% of the body, but what is there is pleasant. It's nicely built, but lacks significant quality.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavour slightly.

Dr: Very drinkable, but limited in quality. A high price for a mediocre beer.

A - Poured out a cloudy, copper color with bronze highlights. It had a two-finger, tan head of pillowy, long lasting foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled very floral. Not much else it some caramel sweetness.

T - Good citrusy bite up front with a strong burnt toast malt backbone. Sweet caramel rounds out this IPA.

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

O - This is a good IPA. Yet another good brew from Mikkeller.

Bottle: Poured a a hazy dirty light orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of hoppy notes with light citrus notes. Taste is a mix between some citrus notes with bitter aftertaste. I thought this was an interesting concept though too many hops used were a bit messy and lead nowhere. Body was quite full with good carbonation. OK though the subtle hops series is more interesting.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy copper in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of medium sized thick patches and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of hops - primarily citrus and grapefruit but there are some lighter notes of floral hops.

T: This beer has a light body of caramel malts with some light amounts of sweetness before the hop flavors take over. The dominant hop flavor is that of the grapefruit and citrus with some lighter hints of floral hops. The beer is not overly bitter.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: This is a very enjoyable beer and one I'm glad that I selected but I think my expectations were maybe a little too high - I really expected something more complex and amazing as the sum of the 10 single hop beers.

A - The beer pours with one finger of off white foam on top of a hazy, golden brown body. The foam fades away quickly but leaves thick curtains of lace on the glass.

S - A spicy hop aroma with notes of pine and sweaty hops as well as some caramel.

T - Rich caramel and bready malt with some pine hops. Darker Bread notes in the middle and a finish of burnt toast, pine, and pithy grapefruit.

M - Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a fairly dry finish.

D - Not bad, I enjoyed the 19 better as the hops seem to have faded a bit with this one. Regardless of the age, the malt is a bit too dry and charred for my taste.

deep brownish amber, with great clarity. Nice streams of carbonation could be seen streaking up toward the top of the glass throughout the session,

aroma was rich with pine like hops. A nice bit of fresh resin like aromas coming off of it throughout. But as it warmed, it turned a touch biscuity, showing that there were some underlying malts that were causing it to be a bit more of a balanced offering then what I was expecting. deep pine resin freshness. Sticky, bitter, and sweet all at the same time, it had a nice refreshing quality to it as well. Virtually no alcohol present, so I cannot imagine this one as coming off too terribly strong, it was a nice solid IPA. Some nice tangerine and orange hints whirling around in the back as well, letting you know there was a nice mix of west coast hops. The finish was strong, very dry and bitter

Had on tap at Max's in Baltimore, MD.

a - Pours a murky orange amber color with one inch of white head and light carbonation.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, and tropical fruits.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, tropical fruity, fruity malts, pineapple. Slight bitterness but not much at all.

m - Medium body and low carbonation.

d - A nice IPA but nothing amazing. Lots of citrus and tropical fruits, would have again.

On-tap at the Stuffed Sandwich

A: The pour is a slightly cloudy copper color with a dense off-white head.

S: The nose is definitely hoppy with some sort of conflicting notes. Good pine and floral aromas, along with some underlying citrus. However, there's still quite a bit of malt.

T: There is a distincly perfumey note to this beer. Lots of floral hops, some mild citrus and pine, and a fair amount of caramel maltiness.

M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation.

D: The problem with these Mikkeller IPAs is that they're not all that fresh by the time they get to the states. Still decent, but I'd opt for a more locally brewed option.
