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.

Abio (1611) - Waasland, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2011
Orange-amber coloured beer with a good sized and good holding head. Sticks nice to the glass also. Hoppy, citrus, light sweetened taste and smell. Smell of red fruits gets trough. Good biterness, that holds pretty long, also the fruity touch stays good.

nick_p (17) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2011
330ml bottle from Cask & Kitchen. Pours a bright amber colour with a long lasting thick white head. Lightly scented with dried fruit edge. Delicate hop flavours not as strong as the Simcoe variety, still a good beer.

Rune (8066) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
100ml on tap at the beer festival in Copenhagen ’11. Near-clear, golden-brown body. Spotty lacing. Smell of dried and fresh fruity hops. Spiced fruity taste followed by pine needles and citrus fruits with underlying malty sweetness. Subdued bitter endnotes. Nice, but my score is a bit lower than for the Centennial version. (28.05.2011).

Scopey (6911) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle at the Mikkeller Single Hop Series tasting at the Kernel Brewery. It pours hazy amber, with a thick off-white head and moderate carbonation. The nose is sweet pineapple, mango, orange and resin. The taste is orange, mango, pine, old wood and sweaty sock, with a moderate bitter-dry finish. Decent hop, decent IPA.

TBone (12566) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2011
Bottled 330ml (Beer Planet)
Deep amber color, good creamy beige head, lace. Faint aroma of fruits and fresh wood. Medium-bodied. Similar sweetish malty background than in the previous Hop Series -beers. Hop profile here is fruity, some citrus or grapefruit and wood, especially in the finish. Cascade as a single hop is perhaps a bit too boring, but still this beer is nicely drinkable. The first 3 beers of Hop Series has been positive suprise and they are much more balanced than Single Hop IPA beers.
