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.

Aroma of honey, hay and spruce. Flavour are quite diffferent, with orange as the main note. A bit different from the others, but quite pleasant.

SeniorZozo (269) - 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.

Huhzubendah (3001) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Hazy copper body with a half inch of tan head. Malty aroma with grassy, earthy hops. Dank earth, pine, rain water. If you brew an IPA, please put a date on the bottle.

glennmastrange (2431) - 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 (219) - 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.

MarkoNm (1510) - 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

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Poured from an 11.2 fl oz. bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Smells of hops and caramelized malt. Appearance- The beer pours a dark orange color with a tan head with a lot of sediment floating in it. Taste- Hops and some malt, this turns into a slightly sweet finish. Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with light carbonation. It is a creamy feeling texture to it. Overall- An OK beer, it wasn’t floored by it. I didn’t really care for the texture.

Kita (1469) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy amber brown color with large frothy tan-like head, poor lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of dark fruits, peach, caramel and grassy hops. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, following is rich fruity, mouthfeel is mild spicy with emphasized alcohol note and heavy bitter finish with long aftertaste. Full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Better than majority English IPA’s made with UK hops...
