Brown glass bottle appears to be 330ml. The top is a standard pressure cap. Acquired at Ramirez Liquor in Los Angeles, California. I don't recall the cost. Served into a conical Guinness pint glass at me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

Expectations are quite high as Mikkeller is me favourite brewery, but Mikkel tends not to brew bright beers as well as he does dark beers.

Served a bit warmer than refrigerator cold. Poured without any extra vigor as I didn't anticipate any carbonation issues.

A: Pours a four finger head, quite thin, without any real trace of cream. No lacing on the head. Retention is average, but the ABV is above average. Beer colour is a semitransparent copper.

Sm: All manner of hop aroma, some bittering, others not so much. Not skunky. Very diverse. Some caramel. Estery. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Hops of all kinds, without too much bitterness. Not at all full bodied. Tastes very much like an experimental beer. All the flavour is on the midpoint; there's just emptiness in the first and third acts. Very structurally brief. Horrendously balanced. Fails as an IPA. Built poorly. At least the malts are clean. Where's the flavour? No alcohol or yeast comes through.

Mf: Extremely thin. Smooth and wet. Undercarbonated. This beer's main issue is its lack of a full body, and the mouthfeel is as much to blame as the flavour profile. Damned flat.

Dr: Easy to drink because it's basically hopped barley water. A major disappointment from Mikkeller, maybe his worst beer I've tried other than Drink n the sun. If I tried this again, it would have to be on draught. Avoid unless you'd murder your grandma for the style.

Dark golden colour, with a yellowish big creamy head that holds all the while. Good lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, resines, citrus, hops, caramel. Medium body, thick palate.Taste of oranges, tropical fruits, resines.
