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.

Bottled (thanks Kimi!). Hazy ambery pale brown colour, mediumsized fluffy off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is mild grassy and some herbal notes with some mild maltyness. Flavour is floral, grassy and herbal with some sweet maltyness. Quite an interesting hop as for the aroma. As for the flavour it’s a good hop for base bitterness.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Parallel with Willamette

Hazy amber color; small head. Mild caramel aroma, light toffee fudge and candi sugar, and sushi (better than the Willamette). Neutral caramel flavor, on the dry side, and neutral hop component; there is a correct (strong) bitterness level and a light but pleasant fruity touch, but also a bit dusty in the final.
Easy.
