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.

peterclash (42) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2011
Nearly no head and a dark orange body. A full-bodied heavy tasting, well balanced bitter beer. A standard good IPA. Works fine on it’s own in this series, but It gets even better if you mix it with the Amarillo. A long aftertaste of grape.
