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.

Pours an orange beer with a good white frothy head. Smells citrus and I guess grapefruit. Tastes fruity. Grapefruit and citrus. Good bitter finish. Good average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

olio (6688) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
33 cl bottle
Pours hazy amber color with a huge head. Aroma is kind of biscuity and malty, not a good sign, some mild resinous hops and grass follow. Flavor is also malty and a bit resinous, some caramel and tangy fruits on the finish. A bit stuffy and too malty for my taste.

bhiner41 (185) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Reddish brown hue, no head. Sweet smell at first, with a bit of dank cereal. More of a sweet taste than fruit or hops. Dry funky aftertaste. Very good like all beers in this series. ---bhiner41 Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lusikka (6603) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy copper colour with a white head. Aroma of caramel, faint herbal notes and some peach. Flavour of biscuity malts, caramel, white grapes, floral notes and some gooseberries. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a harsh, bitter, grape finish. A bit harsh and has that certain off-feeling. Not at it’s best anymore, I think.
