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.

jamestulloch (1280) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle from Vino Wines. Murky amber body with a huge off-white head. Lots of sticky lacing. Mild aroma of lime, pine and caramel. Flavour is similar - sharp citrus, pine, faint yeast and biscuit. Well balanced flavour, but not particularly powerful. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. I had this after the Simcoe - this paled in comparison (but itís still very nice).

bosta (111) - SLOVENIA - SEP 8, 2013
330ml bottle. Pourse dark hazy orange, with beige cream head that doesnít last long. Fresh fruity aroma (grapefruit). Taste is very similar, fresh and fruity. Bitter, dry aftertaste.

danlo (1089) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
330ml bottle. Orangey deep amber colour, foam white head and aroma of tropical fruits and sweet orange citrus. Taste is caramel malt with juicy tropical fruit, orange hop and earthy bitterness. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, warming bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

lusikka (6051) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark cloudy copper amber colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of citrus, white grapes, some lemongrass and caramel. Flavour of smooth and sweet caramel malts, strong citrusy hops, white grapes, some herbal notes and biscuit. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Not overwhelminly bitter but very nicely balanced with the biscuity maltiness. This could easily go as a stronger APA rather than an IPA because of the fairly low alpha acid concentration and high fruitiness. Great stuff still.

BVery (5983) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle. Murky orange pour with a frothy white head. Nice grapefruit and citrus aroma and taste. A little floral as well. Very nice - Iím a fan of this hop variety.

Bov (9335) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 10, 2013
from Erzbierschof - pretty clear amber-orange beer with a moderate foam left; fresh grapefruity hoppiness; lightly flowery; medium-bodied and with a moderate yet long lasting bitterness; more grapefruity hoppy notes in the finish with hints of caramel - quite simplistic and one-dimensional

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
I cannot get over how perfect this series is for a young, aspiring, arrogant, devilishly handsome, prosaic, ex-wife countiní, beer geek. Love brewers that have the pride to showcase ingredients! 330ml bottle from work (another one of my additions) Pours a hazy copper orange with a fairly frothy head. spotty lacing. Aroma is citrus, spruce, cereal, mild doughyness.Taste is supplemented by a cascadey whirlwind of citrusy, grapefruit hops, sweetness and a lingering bitterness, however, the cascade hops make the malt character a co-star in this beer, a caramelly, bready, pastry shop quality which is remarkable and pleasant.
