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.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2014
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark amber color with particulates. Sweet caramelly, toffeish and raisiny aroma. Bitter, toffeish and caramelly taste with fruity hops an menthol. Full body. Too caramelly for Galena come through.

Desverger (3832) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle (BB 04/14) from BarleyWine, CPH - orange amber coloured pour with medium white head. Sweet fruity aroma and taste, nice exotic tropical fruits, slight spicy bite in the hops, caramel malts, light toffee. One month over best before but still tasting great.

BazookaJoe (274) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours dark orange with a lot of sediment in the bottom. Decent hop aroma but the hop flavor dies in the body and is over whelmed by the crystal malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In short: an earthy IPA.
Pours murky orangewith nice creamy off ehite head. Good head rention, good lacework. Malty, grassy, caramel aromas. Medium body, viscous texture, average carbonation. Taste is quite bitter, earthy, resins, some residual sweetness and caramel. A bit unbalanced.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Pours brown to amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and taste is quite the same: pretty malty, caramely with an touch of herbs. Rather subtle hop, resp. could be stronger in taste. Subtle bitterness with a minimal aftertaste. Quite an ok IPA / hops.
