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.

12oz bottle shared amongst friends. Opened along side others from the Single Hop series. Another one that I liked but didn’t really pull anything super specific from. A good drinking IPA none the less.

Orange to amber colour, large to moderate head, slightly off-white. The aroma is floral and honeyish, no sign of the feared catpiss notes. The flavour has some resinous notes, and is fairly bitter. Some malty sweetness too.

330 ml @ Yngwies, all 19 varieties of single hop beers tasted at the same day in September 2011. Slightly unclear, deep golden body with a dense off-white head. Mild in aroma, light fruity, flowers and caramel. Flavor has caramel malt with a soft fruitiness, berries and apices. Relatively bitter and an aftertaste with bitterness and hint of fruit. Decent.

A concept I’ve tried as a home brewer. Creating beers exactly the same except for the hop variety. This one comes off well with a mild fruity aroma, slightly sweet. the beer is cloudy amber with a small lacing head. The flavor has a nice sweet base with a nice balance of bitter hops to keep it clean and refreshing. This hop variety leaves the beer a bit bland which is why hops are mixed for better out comes but well done anyway and keep experimenting.

Bottle looks okay. Beer in the glass golden-copper coloured, small head. Woody-hoppy aroma. Starts intense hoppy, quite dry, almost a bit salty. Prickly with light fruity notes. Finish a bit milder. Aftertaste more dry. Interesting!
