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.

marcus (7823) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy copper with a huge beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a disappointing lack of hop bitterness. The Mt. Hood did not complement this brew, although it is still quite drinkable.

GJF (1371) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - NOV 23, 2011
A straightahead IPA. It’s well made and tasty--with a dry, quite bitter finish--but still not one of the best of their single hops. Not as distinctive as some, but still good.

ClubGonzo (4817) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Pours a dark hazy orange body with a small white head. Nose is light fruity peachy tones with hints of almond and pine. Taste is wet leaves, red berries and hints of cough syrup and pale malts. Very smooth and inoffensive. Slightly bitter grassy aftertaste. Nice.

wlajwl (4807) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Mild hoppy and slightly effervescent aroma. The flavor has a dry hop bite to it but seems to missing the big hoppiness it should have. Decent, not great.

Ibrew2or3 (7565) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2011
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 spices, floral and really little else seems to be going on other than a sense of the base beer’s sweet pilsner like maltiness. The taste starts floral with hops and rolls quickly into spicy hoppiness and a modest level of bitterness. Not as black licorice like spicy as I was expecting.
