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.

I think FINALLY im going to write off all Foreign IPAs. Theyre never fresh even if they just arrive at the store and they are always overly malty bitter and little hop flavor or aroma. Bah

Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum. Frisk doft av citra humlen! Smakar mycket citrus och grapefrukt! Mycket bra öl!

Pours murky brown to amber color with a quite large foamy head. Aroma is citrus, passion fruit, orange, caramel malt. Tasting grapefruit, malt, melon. Bitterness pases right through with a minimal aftertaste. Soft carbonation and a slick texture. Very nice IPA!

Botella de 33 cl en casa, de 2d2dspuma. Mayo de 2013. Otro increible lupulo de la serie Mikkeller. Cuerpo medio que se bebe muy bien con aromas y sabores citricos pronunciados y tonos tropicales de pomelo, melón, limón, grosella, fruta de la pasión y lichi. Bueno Bueno.

Strawberries and melon, but hard to distinguish any particular unique hop flavour.

Tomy63 (173) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 26, 2013
Ma première hop serie (bières brassées avec un seul houblon. Mikkeller en a d’abord sorti 19 dans la série "hop" puis 19 autres dans la série "single hop" toutes à 6,8 ou 6,9%, les "Hop" sont toutes à 100IBU, les "single Hop" de 30 à 120 environ). L’expérience est intéressante, beaucoup d’agrumes, pas très exotique, belle amertume et quelques notes de malt, foin... Bien, mais il y a quand même mieux, le Citra gagne à être assemblé.
