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.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a deep golden with quite some impurities and a dense, white head leaving a neat lacework. Rather subdued hop aroma. Medium body, sweet fruitiness - rather surprising exotic fruit accents - and then a very dry and bitter finish. Good flavours but hardly any aroma. 040511

fiulijn (14513) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle from Kihøskh, Copenhagen, bb 22.03.13, 3 months old
Parallel with Mt. Hood, Super Galena, Warrior

Hazy amber color; this one has less head than all other sisters. The aroma is mild, indifferent, with caramel and some dust. Good mouthfeel and body; the caramel flavor is rounder and not so dry as in others; the hopping is powerful, with a lot of oils, and resins, but just a light fruity trait. Long final, and strong, but quite pleasing.
Midway between single and double IPA, bold, pleasant, although not shining for the hop.
