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.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2011
Part of a second flight of five out of nineteen 4 days test. Thick yellow head over clear foxy-amber beer, well-carbonated. Creamy, exotic fruit nose; rather demure, finishes with hopped, but indifferent malts. Medium bitter, hops, but again, indifferent, bit metallic, finally falling a bit dead. Long-lasting bitterness. Medium bodied at best, bit slick, even creamy texture. Not really exciting. Not a hop, particulary suited for dry-hopping, IMO.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Bottle @ bottlecraft. Not impressed with the nose here...almost smells lagery but otherwise non discript. Frothy head on orange beer. Flavors not impressive either...bitter grass with metallic notes and a clashing combination with the malt profile...bitterness lingers and the flavors suck.

saxo (13455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle from Vinens Verden. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are nice bitter hops, malt, caramel and notes of citrus.

OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2011
Bottle, kindly shared by Skinnyviking at Rune’s hotel-room tasting in Kbh. A finger of dense off-white head, over a medium full, clear reddish-amber body. Leafy and grassy hop aroma. Notes of eucalyptus and some sharpish yellow fruits. Oily and resinous bitterness. Earth, grass, evergreen and faint citrus for flavoring. An interesting variety. Complex.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle from Kihoskh, shared with Palme and friends. Hazy deep orange body, small white top. Aroma is subdued fruity melon tones, hints of caramel and alcohol. Taste is pine, salmiac licorice and hints of melon. Grassy bitter and quite dry finish with some alcoholic tones. A rather nice IPA of the dry variant.

tkrjukoff (3896) - SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle 33 cl, Kihoskh Copenhagen. Pours clear amver with a rich creamy beige head leaving lace. Aroma is piny, grape fruit, cat bin, malty, sweet and spicy. Flavor is fruity, sweet, pungeant, caramel, citric and pungeant. Finishes longlived bitter, fruity and slightly sweet.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 27, 2011
11.2 fl oz bottle purchased at Royal in Kansas City, Missouri. Pour is light haze orange copper with a three inch off white head which is quite lasting. Thick coating left behind as the head slowly falls. The aroma is mild earthiness, along with a slight vegetal aroma and some almost rye spiciness. The taste is pretty sharp with the vegetal earthiness, turning to a slightly bitter spice from the nose. Its more pepper than rye. The aftertaste is the bitter vegetal, and detracts a bit. Palate is medium bodied, dry, a bit chalky. Overall sort of a weird tasting beer - though I can see where Magnum might be interesting in conjunction with other hops, giving it an edginess.

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 23, 2011
Mild süß-herber Antrunk. Bitter-hopfiger Mittelteil mit zunehmender Trockenheit. Im Abgang fuselig wirkend, der Hopfen ist weniger klar. Im Nachgeschmack dann doch etwas breiter und wenig würzig. In Ordnung. 12/10/10/9/7/9

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2011
Hazy amber with off white head and a caramalized aroma with sweet malts and citrusy hops. Taste is caramel-sweet and medium bitter with notes of straw and citrus. Soft carb, medium body. Medium, dry, bitter finish. Not the most interesting in the series...
