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.

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 (9878) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle - I don’t 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 I’ve 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.

Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13, den åttende av de i alt 19: aroma av tørket frukt og gress (og karamell - fra malten?). En fast og bestemt smak med engelsk bittermarmelade. IBU 114, og her merkes det.

Bottle, september 15th 2012. Hazy dark orange body, medium white lasting head. Spicy citrus and pine aroma with caramel. Hoppy taste of grass and herbs, light fruity, malt sweetness which disappears in the swallow. Good hoppy bitterness, floral and piney aftertaste. A good single hop strain.
