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.

Thanks to Reimer96 for this. Pours cloudy copper orange with a big off white frothy head. Aroma is orange and pine hops and sweet caramel malts. Taste is nice woody, caramel malt balancing orange and pine hop bitterness.

Pours copper orangey with a decent head. Aroma if malt, berries, citrus, wheat. Taste is like a mix of every beer you can imagine in small quantities. A little wheat, a little malt, a little sweet, a lot delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reimer96 (1333) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours a hazy amber orange with a huge frothy light brown head that leaves tons of lace. Aroma of sweet pale malts, caramel citrus, pine and a light bit of yeast in the background. Taste is a sweet malt base that is balanced quickly with piney & citrus hop flavors. Nice sharp bitterness up front that subdues on the finish and finishes clean. Excellent example of the Columbus hop but if Id change one thing it would be to have a lower malt base for this particular hop.

ladnewton (1474) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
On tap at BrewDog Camden, London on 13th October 2013. Slightly hazy amber with off-white, full-lacing foam. Richly malty aroma with background yeast scents. Very citrussy liquid with sharp "stab" of flavour. Upper-mouth bitterness and grassy hop dominate the finish, the carbonation is fine, with medium body.

HKdIPA (296) - HONG KONG - DEC 6, 2013
Same copper-amber color as the others in this series - very nice appearance. Aroma is spicy, bready, sort of cheesy, maybe even gingery. Feels more carbonated - very bubbly. A bit of breadiness balancing the hoppy bitterness. Very bitter in a different way than the others - not much else going on though. One of the less interesting of the series.

CacheManyHose (235) - HONG KONG - DEC 6, 2013
Smells very yeasty in a very slightly cheesy way, with some nice malty breadiness. Taste doesn't match the aroma at all - it's quite bitter and dry without much other flavour. Medium body, very dry. A little boring but not bad.

hobsch (505) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle 0.33l from Daniels Tongeren. Pours hazy orange amber with medium off white head. Aroma has resin, caramel, earthy, bread, citrus. Taste has light malt sweetness, is medium to very bitter, citrus. This beer has a medium body and soft carbonation. Finish is bitter and long. Boozy aftertaste. Not an easy going IPA but interesting and drinkable.
