Lord I was born a Ramblin’ Man…thanks to a co-worker, I have had that tune in my head most of the day…although he changed the lyrics slightly.  Ahh…things that rhyme with Ramblin’…

Maybe a beer will help get that song out of my head or maybe I should just turn up Steel Panther.  If you haven’t heard of Steel Panther…Google them. I guarantee if you are or were into 80’s Hair Metal like I am, you will like them. Beware though, they can be quite crude lyric wise but awfully damn funny. Now to the beer.

Beer #185 is 10 by Mikkeller.

Stats – American IPA with an ABV of 6.9% brewed in Denmark.  10 differant hops are used in the brewing process…hence the name, 10
Appearance – Orange amber color with a huge soapy consistency white head
Nose – Lots of hoppiness but not overpowering with grapefruit, herbs, pine, floral (has the scent of fresh cut flowers), with a nice maltiness…bread and caramel
Taste – Pine and grapefruit dominate with just bits of the malts thrown in. Not overly bitter but that bitterness lingers on in the aftertaste
Mouthfeel – Medium-heavy body, coats the mouth, crisp, moderate amount of carbonation

Delicious!  I like this one quite a bit.  It was a beer right up my alley.  Nice and hoppy, decent bitterness, highly drinkable, & refreshing…what more could I ask for?  I have a habit (bad habit possibly???) of cracking open a beer and enjoying it as I am grilling up some yummies.  That is what I did tonight and it was perfect for that.  Cheers or Skaal as they say in Denmark!
