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.

On tap at Frisco: Pours a clear deep orange amber with a well-lacing clingy froth of off-white head. Has a lightly oxidized nose with some sweet floral herbal and resiny character. Starts with decent fullness and finely dissolved carbonation with a light malty sweetness and herbal strong piny and perfumy bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish.

bhensonb (12582) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours copper with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Aroma is floral/woody with a sugar note. Med+ body with foamy/frothy carb. Flavor is floral/fruity, followed by wood, then suddenly a burst of sweet caramel, then something like citrus/pine kills the malt. Finishes like grapefruit rind. Amazing things happening in my mouth.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle. A clear one, dark golden in color and with a dense,creamy, off-white fingerthick head. Lacings. Fruity, grassy and citrusy nose with a sugary touch and something berry-ish. Smooth, full-bodied and nicely carbonated with a fine bitterness. Not intensly bitter even though it’s quite high on the IBU level. A quite nice one, but nothing extraordinary in any way. 110908
