Not a fan. Aroma has notes of grapefruit. Hop bitterness a bit harsh, could be a better balanced beer. Very cloudy but good head retention. My least favorite in this single hop series.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

33cl @ bottle. Ipa dalla solita scandinava MIkkeller. Ottimo l’aspetto e l’aroma, ma secondo me al gusto spicca troppo l’amaro.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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...

As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Bready-malty. Ripe ananas! Sweet and bitter. Not much of a finish. The ananas really is a highlight!
