Mikkeller Beats You

(55)

Here we are back to talking about beer.  And a really good one this is.  From Mikkeller Brewery the I Beat You IPA is one of the best beers i’ve tried.  Like I’ve said before I’m a hop head and if your like me you need to try this one.  The beer pours with a 3 finger head and leaves tons of lacing.  The smell on this one is supper sweet, tons of pineapple.  For the most part this beer smells like pineapple juice.  After smelling that you might think well this one is going to be sweet with not much else to it.  And you would be wrong.  The flavor is amazing, the hops come through with pineapple and pine but not as strong as they do in the nose.  There is a nice caramel malt flavor that really helps to balance out the hops.  And with a ABV of 9.75% it’s hidden really well.  The only taste inclination you get is a slight burn in the back of the throat.  Mikkeller isn’t a cheap beer but it’s worth a try, even if it is only once.
