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.

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.

Butters (3811) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 19. Slightly hazy amber with small particulate and faint offwhite head. Smells and tastes of old musty earthy hops. Faintly citrus, but that has faded for the mostpart. Not my favorite of the group.
