This beer is a part of a Single Hop IPA series by Mikkeller. We created this series to showcase hop varieties on their own. This gives the consumer the possibility of smelling and tasting the unique characteristics of each variety and hopefully helping to educate people about the wonderful world of hops. For each beer, the single hop variety was used in the same weight for bittering, aroma and flavor and for dry hopping. All 19 varieties of single hop beers in this series were brewed the same week and with malts from the same batches and the same yeast and fermentation temperatures. This is done to better compare the characteristics of the different hop varieties.

As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Amarillo is very balanced. Sweet, warming. Chocolaty, bitter, but not too bitter. Very good.

Bottle. Deep hazy orange. Smooth caramel and biscuity malt, toffee, orange and pine. Flavour is sweet malt, orange, pine. Smooth with a decent bitterness. Aged but still very drinkable, just faded.

Cloudyish deep amber color, average sized off white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, yeast, caramel. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Very smooth, creamy texture. Another excellent single hop IPA.

kevinator (1115) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2014
This one had some age on it but was good nonetheless. Still a strong hop aroma of pine and floral. Nice orange-copper color that was deterred a bit by the particulates floating around. Again, most likely due to age. Strong flavors and well-blended . Bitterness was high and somewhat harsh up front but mellowed quickly. Strong malt background with some sweet and sour maltiness. Good but would have liked to try a fresher bottle.

CraftyBeerTour (95) - Barcelon, SPAIN - JUN 2, 2014
33cl bottle. Not sure this was fresh or well stored, as the aroma is much more subdued than I expected. Giving off sweet things, like baked fruit or caramilised pineapple. Copper brown, nice head. A slight alcoholic sharpness. Enjoyable creamy mouthfeel.

HKdIPA (348) - HONG KONG - APR 20, 2014
Very piney aroma. Ditto for taste. Almost a whiskey-like aroma and taste not in a boozy way but deep and bitter. Caramel too. More interesting than good maybe. Not as sweet or bright as the De Molen Amarillo - bit more subdued unfortunately.
