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.

Nose is fresh and slightly grapefruitish - no real kapow though. Medium body, quite fruity while the beer grows increasingly bitter towards the finish. Never extreme though. 040511

Hazy amber beer, small off white head. Semi soft and semi dry palate with a carbonated nip. Minerals. Mildly creamy malt, dry. Bitterish orange that turns a little sweeter at the semi dry finish. Okay but lacks something.

Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. The aroma is very mild, with some fruits, and very light tobacco leaves; really below expectations. Toffee flavor, a bit soulless; the mouthfeel is smooth; the bitterness is decent, with hop resins, but without a serious "bite" and freshness. Average.
