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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
