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.

16/III/14 - 33cl bottle @ Erwin’s ponton - BB: no date on cap, just a weird serial number which I didn’t write down (2014-291) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Bit cloudy, red to dark orange beer, creamy yellowish head, bit stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: some almonds, sweet, caramel, bit sugary, little metallic. MF: ok carbon, medium body, smooth texture. Taste: nice bitterness, caramel, sweet and malty, fudge. There is nothing IPA-ish about this beer any more. All the hops are gone. Aftertaste: some citrus, bit fruity, malty, grains, soft bitterness. A "best by" date would come in handy, yes.

Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma tomada en abril de 2013. Buena, como todas las demás de la serie, esta bastante suave con toques apreciables a hierbas y lúpulo y ligero amargor final. Bastante buena y como no y como las demás, para repetir.

wyzzywyz22 (2102) - 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 (2733) - 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 (2940) - 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.

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.
