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.

Murky amber,rich head,lacing. Aroma is a somewhat sweet toasty/buiscuit malt. Mild hop aroma-this could be aged and definatly wasnt stored refrigerated. Light pine/earthy-evergreen-mint/slight orange. taste is its malt base with light tones of earthy light pine. Pine and citrus in the bitter. Mellow bitter but balanced. I feel a little cheated out of experiencing the true character of columbus by this being as old as whatever date this was made that it does not tell you on the bottle. Ive had his series before but none maybe that fresh,but would imagine they are all pretty great within the first few months.

Panzuriel (1282) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Very cloudy bronzy brew with a head of tan head of small to medium bubbles. Nose is strong with the slightly pine scent of hops. Taste is dry initially with a good hit of hops. They start with more pine but resolve to almost a white pepper on the finish. Body is lively. Finish is a touch of bitters. Quite an interesting beer.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 28, 2013
from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark reddish-amber beer with a poor head retention; solid hoppiness where notes of quince dominate; full-bodied, dry and solidly bitter, long fruity hoppy finish with more notes of quince marmalade

lusikka (5936) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a deep orange amber colour with a red hue and a white lacy head. Aroma of strong fresh grass, some caramel, wet earth and mango. Flavour is very pleasant with it’s strong, mainly grassy bitterness with floral undertones, grapefruit, strong herbs, citrus, mango and huge complex earthiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Long, lingering bitter, earthy finish. Columbus rocks.

EddyBeer1 (832) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 5, 2013
Ambrée légèrement trouble, pétillance moyenne, mousse moyenne vite tombée. L’amertume de pamplemousse domine dès le départ malgré quelques notes herbeuses. Trop peu de nuance...

DuffMan (6439) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife. Deep amber-orange, slightly hazy, average off-white head. Aroma is sharp conifer and light citrus with underlying caramel malt. The palate is equally hoppy and malty, with more citrus coming through than was present on the nose. The malts are nice but the hops are flattening out for sure. Very bitter finish.

Tide (1638) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Amber color, white head. Intense bitter taste with grapefruit, pine, resin, loads of floral hops and a bit of fruits. Body is mostly dominated by hops, in a good way. Bitter finish with grapefruit and fruits. Excellent, a bit brutal IPA.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
2nd for me in the Mikkeller hop series (Cascade 1). 330ml bottle from Sherbrooke Pours a hazy copper with a fairly frothy head. sticky lacing. Aroma is sweet, tangerine, meyer lemon, and mild sappy, resinous pine note.Taste is mild sweetness (citrusy, piney, floral) and a lingering bitterness - cookie dough, caramel malt character really brought out, and the sticky pine-tar, sappyness of the hops. A beautiful balanced beer that isn’t shy about its IBU.
