Pours a hazy dark orange color, with a huge, orangy white head.

Smells of juicy, ripe orange, together with a nice, grassy dankness and a subtle, refreshing lemon note. A whiff of blueberry skin underneath, as well as white bread malts with even more orange.

Drinks very soft till the finish, in which a bubbly carbonation washes over the established creaminess, revealing a lively minerality. This leads to a thinner, aqueous finish, with not much going on, considering the united potential of 19 hops.

Tastes of toffee coated oranges, while a soothing dankness blends a well accentuated lemon crispness perfectly into the flavor foundation of this, while leading off with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Blood oranges add to the fruitiness, as well as a late kiwi addition during the finish, balancing sweet turning, cakey malts. Produces a pungent bitterness after its initial fruit layer, which gets tamed by a more prominent malt bill during the beer's finish.

Convinces due to its great balance, creating an easy drinker with a nice mouthfeel, while its hoppiness remains on the fruitier side, with a decent complexity to it.

11.2 oz can. Pours a murky orange/amber, with a thick foamy head. Smell is fruity and tropical with a bit of Belgian yeast character. Taste is bitter grapefruit rind, orange marmalade and resinous hops. Flavor is a bit muddled, given that there are 19 varieties of hops in this one. Not nearly as confusing to the palate as I was expecting though. Mikkeller seemed to pull this off pretty well - lots of clean hop flavors. A lupulin laced IPA, but it's hard to pin-point a specific hop profile. If bitterness and hops are what you're after, this one's worth the $5/can. Glad I tried it.

14/9/17 enjoyed February 7, 2016 in a stemless wine glass.

Look - Hazy, dark orange. Thick bubbled, thick off white head. A lot of lacing. Looking at it you expect a heavy, malt bomb.

Smell - Bready. Light pine. Light dankness. Light citrus.

Taste - Very close to a juicy fruit beer. Not a lot of malt in the taste. Faded hoppiness. Yeast. Pine and resin. Light spice at the very end.

Feel - A lot of carbonation. Not dry by any means. Medium to light feel.

Overall - It's like drinking a suicide. Yeah, it's good, but you look like a fool doing it. I bought this because my favorite number is 19 (Bob Feller, Cleveland Indians). A lot going on. Each sip made me question the last one.

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.

Pours a medium rich amber. Taste is more on the bitter side, but somehow they get all 19 hops to play nice together. Good job.

This beer pours a very hazy light amber with a copious head. The aroma hits me first with a tiny whiff of citrus, followed by a forrest load of pine and resin. The flavor leads almost exclusively with a strong pine and resin tone, softening out too a gentler, light malt finish, with the pine still present but less perceived bitterness than the beginning of the sip. The mouthfeel approaches thick, but not in an overwhelming way. Overall this is a solid IPA, but maybe a touch spendy for what you are getting. Still, well worth a try if you love pine.

Cloudy amber gold with a little carbonation and a finger of brownish orange head.

Citrus, caramel, creme brulee, peaches, floral and herbal sage branch. Apricot flesh and peach pits.

Caramel, orange, herbal, generic green leaf, onion and garlic but really light, sichuan pepper on the end, moderate bitterness.

Medium body, lots of foamy and frothy carbonation to almost oblivion.

Flavourful brew that has so many types of hops its hard to distinguish any. But, it works as an IPA. There is such a melding of all 19 hops, it works out sort of like a mosaic does. I think thats what they were going for based on the label, and they got it. Got on wishbeer, drank Sept 15th, 2015.

Bottle. Burn orange/cooper, little hazy with medium to big, white, densed head. Poor lasting. Average lacing. Mostly tropical fruits aroma (amarillo, citra) and some citrus (orange, mandarin) also floral and resin notes, also noticable hints of honey. Taste is light to medium bitter with mostly tropical fruits and floral flavours, next you cen feel some resin and woody notes. Along with hops there is pretty balanced malty profile with mainly caramel accents. Medium body, smooth/oily texture, medium carbonation, finish is light bitter. In general very solid and balanced IPA, quite drinkable.
