Mikkeller Invasion IPA
I tend to skip over pricey import IPA’s without a bottle date, but I decided to take a chance on Mikkeller Invasion IPA when I saw it at the store. I think it is also important to support your bottle shop when they bring in new and interesting beers. These are the flavors I remember loving when my passion for IPA’s was at its peak: caramel malts in the background that are balanced by exceptional citrus rind and pine resin. This is a really nice west coast style IPA that doesn’t take it to the extreme, not sure if that is intentional or because of some age. Regardless I was glad I picked up a bottle, this was rather good.
