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.

Dark amber with a thick white head on tap at the map room. Slight hoppy watery and fruity aroma. Slightly sour, astonishing lemon finish. Not your average IPA, very nicely built.

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.

On tap at Atticus Finch. Very well balanced. Aromas of caramel and grass. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is almost creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

330mL bottle generously sent across the pond by stobbe74. The bottle pours copper with gold edges and a bit hazy when the yeasty sediment is involved. The hop laden liquid supports a near white sort of head. Another much anticipated variant as I am finding myself a whore for bold chewy spicy hoppy goodness. The aroma is full up yummy spicy hops to go along with much lesser amounts of dank wet earthiness and some floral. The taste is pure spicy hop love with chewy yummy spicy hops that beam with flavor and bitterness. This spicy hoppiness is lightly supported by a bit of floral and citrus. Yum!

Aroma is pine, grapefruit, citrus and a quality that I can only describe as juicy. The flavor is juicy, kind of a mix of apple and tropical fruit, along with a long bitter hop finish. Although it wasn’t a wet hop IPA, it had some characteristics of one.

Maris (1383) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 26/9/2012. Pours a cloudy, dark orange with a biggish head which disappears quickly.Has a beautiful floral, fruity, hoppy aroma with some honey, caramel and brown sugar. In the mouth, sweet orange and lemon are prominent, along with some light caramel malt, honey and grapefruit. The bitterness is, as expected, on the high side, and very satisfying. The body is a little syrupy and the carbonation a bit higher than normal for an IPA. All in all, a beautifully balanced brew.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This orange-amber beer has rich orange marmalade and burnt caramel flavours a creamy mouthfeel and pine on the finish. Excellent!

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

Unclear honey-amber beer with a tan head. Classic american hop profile with green raw hops, fruity sweet and medium bitter.
