Notes: Collaboration with Mikkeller

Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. This year’s offering will be brewed in both Europe and in Chicago. Look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

From old, undated notes. Poured from the bottle.

Clear, rich yellow color.

White head; decent lacing.

Smells of pineapple, grapefruit & high grade marijuana.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Delicious citrus flavor in this, I believe they used rice instead of barley here, & the cloying flavor so many barleywines have is missing. In fact, it tastes more like one of the best DIPA's I've ever had. Bravo!

Glowing orange, white head. Sticky sweet hop, orange zest, pungent lemon. Good carb, great honeysuckle and slight ginger. Amazing

I have been sitting on this one since 2012 . Finally decided to open this gem pool side.

A. looks like honey,cannot see at all threw it, very cloudy. about a 3 finger head. not sure if the color reflects it being 2 years old.
S. smells is very close to a East Coast IPA . kind of has that mango, pineapple IPA very sweet juciey smell.
T. very nice .. by no means if someone put this in front of me in a blind taste tast would i ever think this is a barleywine. i would swear this is a Imperial IPA. has some malt backbone and really gets more of a varnish tast as it warms. very drinkable.
M. very stickey close to honey in the mouth and keeps the throut coated as a RIS might. again might be because it has been aged for 2 years.
O. i really wish i had more of these . was a great treat and well worth the wait of cellering this one. this is something i would drink all the time if it was not such a rare beer .. i would reconmind this one . if you have a chance to sample and like IPA's this will be a treat..
