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.

olio (9281) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a large head. Aroma of very resiny hops and caramel malts, the hop profile is quite aggressive, some grass and herbs also. Flavor of hops, hay, some pale malts, caramel and goose berris, lingering citric fruits on the aftertaste. Bitter palate, sticky sweetish finish. Again, a bit too stuffy and I didn’t quite like the hop profile.

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 18, 2013
from Erzbierschof - slightly amber-orange beer with a modest head retention; hoppy notes of plastic and grapefruit; a good malt backbone, light astringency, herbal and spicy bitterness; quite dry with more plastic reminiscence - not convincing

Bottle from Beer Cartel. Hazy amber, strong caramel aroma, some pine, citrus peel, a bit spicy. Bitterness characteristics of the hops dominate over flavour and aroma. Ok, but not my favourite single hop from Mikkeller.

Amber color with a white head. This one is a bit more on the hoppy side with a nice finish, but still lacking the pine and fruit notes.
