Poured from a 33cL bottle into a brandy snifter. The cap is stamped 9341202.

A: A finger and a half of white, frothy head. Very hazy, straw-yellow. Scattered, heavy lacing.

S: Man, it smells like skunk from the second I uncap the bottle. Bummer. Mild, citrusy hops if you really look for it.

T/M: Mild, funky Brett and crisp carbonation with a bitter-dry endtaste. Some soft fruit, lemon rind, and a pleasant but subdued hoppiness. It grows funkier with time.

O: Interesting, decent beer. Worth trying, if not worth buying. More like a hopped saison than an IPA.

A - Pours a hazy golden color with a white foamy head.
S - Aroma is almost non-existent, maybe a little lemon.
T - Flavor is mild, grassy, and a little bitter.
M - Medium mouth feel and carbonation.
O - Underwhelming. Very drinkable but not special.

12oz bottle into snifter. Have enjoyed this beer a few times over the years and am glad to finally have the time to make some notes on it. Nice rich fruit notes on the nose, hazy appearance, lively carbonation. Slightly bitter per style, signature Mikkeller attributes are apparent almost "Sessionable", very drinkable.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. And yes, that can came courtesy of the amazing woodychandler. Has a cloudy, light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some lemons. Taste is lemons, mint, some wheat, light bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, unique for the style, and decent enough, but lacking the punch I expect from an IPA.
