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.

CanCrusher (935) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle 0,33L Hazy, dark copper colour with large, frothy, off-white, long lasting head. Very hoppy fruity aroma, also honey, plum jam and alcohol note. Teoretical IBU is 94, but so is practical, I think. Taste starts heavy bitter and finish harsh bitter with long lasting aftertaste. Medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation.

On tap at the Cask and Kitchen, Pimlico. Very thick bitterness. Lacks a bit of levity and freshness. Really very bitter. Crunchy sugar malt and thick. Quality.

330mL bottle generously sent across the pond by stobbe74. The bottle pours copper with gold edges and a bit hazy when the yeasty sediment is involved. The hop laden liquid supports a near white sort of head. The aroma has modest notes of spicy and sort of neutral resiny hops. The taste offers up yummy rich chewy spicy hops rimmed with various yet mild levels of citrus hoppiness. It gets nice and resiny and almost waxy. Great taste here as it is full of bitter and resiny hop goodness.
