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.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
4th for me in the Mikkeller hop series (Cascade, Columbus, Bravo). 330ml bottle from Sherbrooke. Pours a hazy copper with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is mild grapefruit, strong floral.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a lingering bitterness - cookie dough, caramel malt character really brought out, and more floral bitter hop notes. Pretty cool brew.

kappldav123 (4815) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark golden, nice head. Grasy-hoppy aroma. Starts dry-hoppy, a bit soapy-dry. Finish less dry, modest fruity. Well balanced finish. Okay.

imaragingbull (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange amber, lots of sediment apparent through my own fault, but evidently does not detract from the flavour. Big light tan head and great lace. Aromas of lemon, grass, citrus, sweet caramel toasted malts, a touch of honey and nutty notes. Medium light body, medium smooth bitterness. Finish is semi sweet and toasty with caramel malts, munich roastiness and lemony citrus grassy hop flavours balanced with a big malt body.

Cloudy golden. Offwhite medium head that clings. Grassy nose. Taste is... barn, grass, citrus and some yeast.

Glouglouburp (6004) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
In short: A floral and citrusy-acidic IPA with heavy cookie maltiness. Good.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed a few weeks after purchase, as fresh I can get Mikkeller in North-America.
The look: Cloudy dark orange body topped by a large beige head with medium retention.
In long: The pleasantly hoppy nose is floral and citrusy. Taste has a big malt backbone, plenty of toasted cookies, a bit grainy, crunchy dried fruits. Assertive floral and citrusy hops pushing forward grapefruits, clementines, garden flowers, lemons. A bit too much of a yeast presence than I like to feel in an IPA. Bitterness level of medium intensity with citric acidic undertones. Tasty IPA, decent beer even if a bit too yeasty and citric for my taste. Some people are giving this beer a good rating, some people are giving this beer a bad rating, but the absolute worst thing about ratebeer these days is that a French Canadian dude can come on this site and affirm knowing what is the absolute worst thing about ratebeer these days.

PriorL (1759) - 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: quite fruity, some yeast. Taste: this hop doesn’t give much ’extra’, quite sweet, little honey like.

mikedR (1160) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2013
Sampled as part of a hop education class. Very earthy compared to Williamette, Bravo, and Nugget. Not overly hoppy or bitter. Compared to the other 3, my least favorite, although a solid body in mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
