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.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark golden, nice head. Dry-hoppy aroma. Starts grasy-dry, light lemon notes, fine spicy. Nice bitter notes in the background. Not bad!

Bottle from Beer Cartel. Slightly hazy orange/amber, lasting head, resiney pine, quite floral, some grapefruit/citrus. Medium-high bitterness, but still quite sweet as well, medium body. Really liked this one!

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from perfect pour. Pours dark orange with a thin khaki head. Faint floral on the nose. Nice hop flavor on the tongue with enough bitterness to finish clean without being a hop bomb. Nice!

PriorL (1642) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl Bottle. Blind tasting of all 19 Mikkeller Hop Series beers. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: amber beer, stable white head. Nose: very sweet nose, pleasant! Taste: mild taste, light sweet, very balanced. I can understand why a lot of brewers use this kind of hop.

Holmen1 (2275) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2013
Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13: nr. 17, og flere i panelet har kastewt inn glasset og forlatt åstedet. Bare 38 IBU, men ganske bitter allikevel. Fruktig og god. Fikk først en stjerne i margen, men denne ble strøket uten at jeg kan erindre hvorfor...

Cunningham (4301) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2013

Appearance: Hazy dark orange color with a fine off white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Malty, fruity and grape hoppy.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a rich bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity and rich (grape) hoppy on a solid malt background.
Overall impression: Heavy stuff. Nice IPA but it is better with Cascade together with some other friends.
Personal stats: Bottle from Vinmonopolet Oslo - Vika in Oslo, Norway.

33cl bottle @ home. Hazy orange color, medium sized, creamy, fairly long lasting, fair lacing white to off - white head. Aroma of malts, citrus, oranges, hops, grapefruit. Taste malts, hops, grapefruit, bitter, fruity. Medium body and carbonation. I very much like this. A clean IPA, nothing outrageous, good balance. Lovely.

Bottle, enjoyed september 15th 2012. Hazy dark orange body, big offwhite head. Aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit. Dry taste with cara malt, grapefruit and oranges. Good strong bitterness. Not very special in any way, but a solid cascade ipa.
