Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 15th November 2017. Poured into a Mikkeller tasting glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger frothy white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Orange juice, honey, pine and caramel with hints of grapefruit.
Taste: Bittersweet orange juice, grapefruit, pine and caramel while at the same time, quite boozy.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: This was one was not really for me. My least favourite of the four single hop IIPA’s that I tried. It was the clear booziness that took away from my fully appreciating this.
