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.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass golden-copper coloured, nice head. Starts dry-hoppy, modest grasy, a bit soapy. Modest bitter background. Finish well balanced, a bit milder. Okay!

BMMillsy (1255) - Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Poured at The Top in Gainesville. Murky brownish pour and small white head. Malty aroma, caramel, bit of hops pine. Flavor follows with big caramel malt notes, candy brown sugar, not much hop presence. Interesting but wonít return to this one.

andrewturba (949) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
Pours a cloudy(likely from dry hopping) amber colour with a massive sticky, dense, creamy off white head that leaves tons of lace up the glass.Aroma is tropical fruits, some caramel, and sweet orange. Flavour is resin, pine, grape fruit, medium bitterness, light grass, and mild malty sweetness. Nice balance to this one.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy burnt orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, bitter orange, a little caramel and grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter. Citrus and pine. Medium bodied with a slightly slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, good. Definitely a fan of this hop.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle - I donít exactly recall where or when. Pours clear, bright copper-gold with a large, frothy white foam head. Dried citrus in the nose, some toasty biscuits, faint caramel and dirt. Medium sweet flavor with juicy melon, mango, orange, light pine, bubblegum, some dirt and grass. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Quick sticky and resinous to finish, with more melon, lingering grass, light boozy warmth, some further dirt and caramel, toast and bubblegum. One of the better beers Iíve had from this series.

330ml bottle from Warners at the Bay Bottle Shop. Yet another in the line up of great beers from Mikkeller. Strong in the mouth with great flavour and aroma. Big bold and ballsy.
