COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. The aroma, although not too strong, is very pungent, with citrusy fruits, cedar, passion fruit; very satisfying. The dry toffee flavor is almost completely hidden by the hop here (and this is not a bad thing); still, the toffee flavour could be cleaner… The hop carries a god mix of fruits and resins, aggressive in a good way; there is some bitter orange, cedar and passion fruit. Long final. Excellent.
