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.

Ferris (4529) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle - Pefumy, grapefruit and a spicy pine. Cloudy orange with a great beige head. Lots of pine, like drinking a pine cone. Fresh and nicely balanced for a single hop. Great fun.

jamestulloch (1462) - 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 (118) - 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 (1229) - 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 (6354) - 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.
