Tasting: 19 Mikkeller

My mouth hangs open when I take pictures. It's common.


6.8% bottle

19 Different hops, marked on bottle by amount in %
3 malts: pilsner, munich, cara-crystal
A: Bright tawny rust color, no head retentino on frothed white mass. Sluggish small bubbles
S: citrus, floral, hops, hops, hops

T: breen and bitter but more malt then an average IPA Nothing compared to the smell. After a bit it gets a touch metallic, loses the smell and sinks into a syrupy malt. A light caramel smell lifts up as it warms.

M: slightly sticky coating but dry- hops all over the mouth!

O: Interesting, not as clean as some IPA, but the added malt depth is lovely. Still, not very clear. Missing a sweetness. Very nice.
