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.

bb 22.03.13, possibly 3 months old

Beautiful amber color, bright and clean, with a generous thick head. Mild aroma: caramel, cream, paper, light dust; later, timid, some resins and fruits. Dry caramel favor; this hop allows some toffee to appear too; the hop and bitterness are well blended here, although the hop doesn’t carry many aromatic qualities. Strong and long final.
Plain, but pleasant.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Interesting hop - mild grapefruit under a little lime. Subtle floral character. A little dry malt cream before the softer finish. All right.
