Hazy copper body with a half inch of tan head. Malty aroma with grassy, earthy hops. Dank earth, pine, rain water. If you brew an IPA, please put a date on the bottle.

All of the single hop offerings by Mikkeller have the same basic look, feel and flavor profile, with only slight variations in tone and taste. Like this one, pours a somewhat dark and cloudy amber shade with moderate head. For a modest ABV (just under 7), the smell is surprisingly boozy. Not a bitter hop bomb; sweetness and malt backbone are very evident. As I said, hard to distinguish among the beers in this series. All solid and a nice IPA alternative to the citrusy or bitter West Coast offerings. (8.0)

Poured from an 11.2 fl oz. bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Smells of hops and caramelized malt. Appearance- The beer pours a dark orange color with a tan head with a lot of sediment floating in it. Taste- Hops and some malt, this turns into a slightly sweet finish. Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with light carbonation. It is a creamy feeling texture to it. Overall- An OK beer, it wasn’t floored by it. I didn’t really care for the texture.
