look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Intense, red-orange, caramel and amber. The head is huge. Lace for days. I mean like lingerie lace. Sexy. Woof

S: I get spicy, tropical and citrus hops with a little salt and garlic. Nothing off putting at all but it definitely is an indicator of what's about to go down.

T: Holy yes, pineapple, bananas, lemon-lime, spicy and possibly redefining the IBU. What I'm saying is, if a 6-pack of this were available, you'd be sweating alpha acids for weeks. And I like that.

F: Between medium and heavy. It's very smooth, almost silky with barely any bite. Like licking the Queen's pillow.

O: I concur. Please purchase this beer. Coming from a home brewer, the price you get this beer at is most likely very generous if there are as many hops as I think there are in this creation. Or maybe Mikkeller just has mad hop sponsorships.

That is a lot of hops, curious what the overall IBU is because it is not harsh at all. All the hop flavors in the world are in there, pick out your favorite descriptions of hops and they apply. Barring the price, this is a pleasantly complicated IPA that I would drink all the time.

I don't know how to interpret the bottle date, just some numbers and dots, so maybe it is not date coded. And so I apologize for not having a lot more to say about this marvelous beer other than if you get a chance to try it, any hophead would at least appreciate what they were trying to do here. I mean every variation of hop flavor is actually in this beer, what hits your taste buds?
