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.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle, Brew Dog.com. Amber pour with a middling off-white head. Fragrant hop, sweet malt and citrus nose. Earthy hop flavour with some sweet malt notes. Relatively subdued bitterness levels. Decent but nothing earth shattering.

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Caramel, rich perfumey hops, some earthiness. Cloudy, dull orange/amber color. Rough, sort of peppery initial/ mild hopping plus slightly sweet malt notes / very light finish, and it dissipates too quickly. Light-medium body. Good enough. A bit light and watery.

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2013
33 theoretical IBU. Pours a hazy dark copper from the bottle with thin off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is malty sweetness, caramel and pale, slight bread on the back end. Taste follows, sweet and malty, hint of earthiness; the hops have definitely fallen off. Definitely not fresh, but interesting concept.

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh…

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle from John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Murky deep orange pour with a big pillowy head. I rather enjoy this hop variety - mild grapefruit and wood. Hits a good spot for me.

jamestulloch (1583) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Vino Wines. Murky amber body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and orange sherbert. Flavour of candy, wood, honey and lemon flavoured Lockets. Sweet malt wins - just - over the sharp hops. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. On this evidence, Mount Hood is a sharp, woody hop.

zacgillbanks (2562) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This hazy orange beer has citrus and orange blossom flavours with more sweet fruit and a slight woody hop note on the finish.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a small white lacy head. Aroma of fresh herbs, mint and heavy caramel. Flavour of caramel, fresh herbs, some berries, grassy bitterness, citrus and some citrus. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and rough-ish carbonation. Finishes herbal, chewy and grassy. Interesting.

CPH2200 (302) - DENMARK - OCT 7, 2013
33 cl bottle 6.8% abv. Aroma with grapefruit notes and cooked vegetable. Little bitternes in the taste (33 ibu) probably the lowest in the series. Not bad though but not really interesting.
