19 tasting notes
Mikkeller’s 19 is a fruity IPA brewed with 19 different hop types. Light hazy deep orange colour with medium white head that stays quite long. Fragrant with complex and fresh hop aromas. Citrus, grapefruit and simcoe also well noticeable. Flavour is citrus, tropical fruits and resin. After that, it has more notes of caramel and sweetness. Well balanced, and easy drinkable India Pale Ale.
Modern IPA's are decidedly hoppy and bitter, with strong hoppy and floral aromas, specially from American hops such as Citrus and Mosaic. Some versions are dry-hopped to get an even more intense aroma. Its color ranges from medium-gold to amber and even to dark brown and black in the case of Black IPA's. The body is medium-light and the ABV is not very high, in the range of 5 to 7,5% ABV. The English styles have a more sweet character derived of the malts used (giving them a caramel, bread, and toast touch).
