3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around, with cereal and nutty for the malt, orange for the hops, dough for the yeast, with background notes of date, toffee and nutmeg. Head is small to average in size, fizzy/frothy light beige with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is muddy medium brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. Way different then their other single hop IPAs. Not sure the difference is from hop variety or the length of time it sat in the bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty similar to the bravo as none of these are very fresh since I got them onsale at Schneider’s. The hops here is less interesting than bravo though. Still good malt profile, crisp barley. Soft carbonation. Same cloudy orange brown colour.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy aroma has a strong fruity overtone, mainly pear with some apple and a hint of banana. Pours a nice dark chestnut with a fairly thick, if not persistent, dirty buff head. Flavor is fairly hoppy, rather fruity, not at all bitter but not sweet. Texture is firm and leaves a nice woody and resiny hop finish, though it lacks fizz. I’m glad that I caught one more of this series.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown to amber cloudy color with an medium head. Aroma is malt, pear, a little bit of pine. Taste is a bit dry, pine with a fruity aftertaste and a fast passing bitterness. It lacks a bit of a body but it isn’t a bad IPA. Just nothing that special (comparing to the other Single Hop beers from Mikkeller).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazed and speckled amber with a thin white head. Aroma is bready and floral with floral hops and caramel. The malt bill on this one overpowers the average hop profile. Kinda bland with floral hops, caramel, stalky notes and a moderate to high bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botella de 33 cl en casa en marzo de 2013. Una de la serie single hops. Una maravilla de Ipa que con su moderado índice de alcohol aporta un increíble sabor y lo que er mejor, que todo ese sabor proviene de un único lupulo. En este caso es el lupulo cluster. Presenta un sabor dulce y oleoso al principio con un amargor poco pronunciado cl final. Una serie de birras que debería de estar en todos los bares siempre. Imprescindible repetir.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
66 theoretical IBU. Pours a hazy dark copper from the bottle with thick off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is malty sweetness, caramel and pils, slight floral notes on the back end. Taste follows, nice balance, but the hops have definitely fallen off. Easy to drink, good carbonation, slight bitterness. Definitely not fresh, but interesting concept.
