Denmark’s Mikkeller takes a swing a crafting an IPA? Sign me up!! My wallet is a little gun shy on laying down $6 for 11.5 oz bottle of beer, but seeing how I’ve spent $10 on a 10 oz beer at the ballpark, I can justify it. Plus, you want to know if it’s worth buying.
Let’s start with the beer label. WOW! How cool is that??!! I wasn’t successful in peeling off the label fully in tact. Can I get a poster sized for my garage?
Why is it named 20? Mikkeller uses 20 different kinds of hops!! Dang, Mikkeller, you don’t mess around. On the pour, a robust honey orange liquid fills the glass giving light very few places to go, my favorite.
The taste has citrus/grapefruit, pine and deep floral notes, perhaps the most floral I’ve ever had, which I really enjoyed. Has a bitter after taste that goes the distance. Had no one told be who brewed this beer I would have swore it was a California beer.
Great job, Mikkeller, mission accomplished. Can you put this in a six pack?
