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.

BVery (5992) - 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.

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
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 (3424) - 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)

Bottle from Vino Wines. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head head. Nice lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and oranges. Flavour is like the aroma - the finish is slightly peppery and very bitter. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.A juicy, bitter IPA.

sebletitje (6602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2013
draft Dorée-orangée, col épais blanc-cassé. Arôme est simplement fantastique avec un bouquet pin-résineux dominant. Palais est agréablement houblonné, pin qui domine avec un fini malté restant en retrait légèrement caramel. Fruité tropical rappelant un peu le pamplemousse entrecoupé par ces notes de pin.
