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.

danlo (2553) - 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 (7689) - 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 (9574) - Plymouth, 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 - I’m a fan of this hop variety.

Bov (11973) - 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

I cannot get over how perfect this series is for a young, aspiring, arrogant, devilishly handsome, prosaic, ex-wife countin’, 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.

kappldav123 (5890) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
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!

ShaneJ (822) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2013
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 (4189) - Lewisburg, 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!

gramity (1625) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
Pours cloudy deep orange with a dappled white head. Aroma of barnyard, herbal, dust. Flavour of light citrus fruits, herbal notes, earth. Medium bodied

PriorL (3069) - 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.
