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.

Ungstrup (29174) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2011
Bottled. A slightly hazy amber beer with a huge lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of citrus fruits, Columbus hops, on a caramel background - very distinct Columbus. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemon and grapefruit on a malty caramel background, leading to a bitter finish.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a clear deep golden with a dense and lacing white head. Very fresh and citrusy hop aroma. Medium body, the usual malt base is here overpowered by a massive hoppiness - in a good way mind you. Citrusy and dry, gets somewhat dusty towards the end. Nice. 040511

thewolf (11132) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 30, 2011
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear coppery golden with a big, yellowish, frothy head. Aroma has strawberries, pine, resin, plant sap, lime and passionfruit. Light caramel doughy malt behind it. Medium carbonation, creamy and elegantly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very lovely, the malt profile balancing the heavy hops well. Again passionfruit, grapefruit, pine and plant sap dominating. Some red berries in the back. Very lovely.
