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.

Doesn't have a big aroma - slightly yeasty and resinous. Taste is more interesting than the smell (which is definitely not true of all of the single hop series IPAs) - quite piney, a bit grassy, with a small amount of florals. Very drinkable. Palate is nicely oily and dry, perhaps a little watery. A pretty nice one of the single hop IPAs that I've tasted.

Same amber-copper color as the others in this series. Looks great. Very deep piney aroma, also a bit of honey. Taste is similarly piney, followed by herbaceous bitterness and tiny bit of citrus peel. No floral taste, nor much sweetness. Quite drinkable. One of my favorites of the single hop series.

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh…

BVery (6833) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from John’s Grocery in Iowa City, IA. Murky orange pour with a large foamy head. This seems like it was on the shelf for awhile - maybe that’s why they were having a blowout sale on these? Some citrus notes are still here, but there’s some dustiness and cardboard as well.

Pours a cloudy copper with large beige head leaving lots of lace on the glass. Aroma is floral, citrus, resin, spicy, and light bready malt. Flavour is spicy, resin, citrus, mild-medium bitterness, bready, and a light malty sweetness.

erickok (3745) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 6, 2013
Grassy, pine, bit woody. Feels old, dusty too. Not so aromatic. Simple malt base, but that’s expected. Neh. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

Abijen (1511) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2013
Pours an orange beer with a good frothy white head. Smells fruity and a bit cheesy. Tastes citrus and grapefruit with a good bitter finish. Good average carbo with a thin body and a dry texture.

lusikka (6434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2013
330 ml bottle, enjoyed at Barcelona in a tasting of Centennial-Citra-Amarillo-Simcoe.
Pours a dark amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, biscuit and resin. Flavour of biscuity malts, strong floral hops, resin, weak grapefruit and caramel. Medium bodied and a long, lingering bitter, resiny finish. Good one.
