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.

Heady amber. Grapefruit, grassy. Definite ibu quality. Top 9/19. Galena is a hop I'd like balanced by another. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Comparing to the sister Mikkeller Cluster. This one takes the cake (for its age). Roasty, resiny, spruce, leaves. Clear deep gold with high sediment. Raisins? Fresher and more bitter than the other. Both have a short finish, but this one is longer and more pleasant.

SeniorZozo (1293) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 15, 2015
Pine, spruce, dry leaves, very nice. Much smoother than I expected yet it balances the light biscuit and sweet malty body very well. Sharper but nice bitterness.

glennmastrange (2685) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Bottle. Heavy cookie and caramel for the malt, moderate perfume and orange for the hops, light dough and soap for the yeast, with a hint of brown sugar. Head is small, frothy, beige with a spot or two for lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is muddy, medium brown with a bit of medium sized particles. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter and moderately acidic. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a lively carbonation. Seemed a little more malt dominant then IPAs I’m in to, still a good drinking beer.

mircoas (295) - ITALY - MAR 15, 2015
33cl @ bottle. Ipa dalla solita scandinava MIkkeller. Ottimo l’aspetto e l’aroma, ma secondo me al gusto spicca troppo l’amaro.

csaso (2119) - Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle - big foamy head, dark copper color, big tangerine and mild pine aroma and flavor, solid malt backbone, very bitter mouthfeel, not bad overall but not one of my favorites out of this series ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarkoNm (2388) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 4, 2015
Pours a hazy coppery brown color, topped with lots of lasting cream colored head. Malty aroma, decently present, notes of caramel, biscuits and some dark fruits can also be picked up. Taste is on the otehr hand hoppy and bitter from the start to finish, although some biscuity notes are in the aftertaste along with herbal feel. Not bad
