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.

NeoHippie2 (795) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Hazy orange/copper pour. Aromas of some biscuit notes with citrus hops. A bit strange. Flavor is similar. The biscuit character conflicts with the citrus hoppy notes.

olio (5272) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2013
33 cl bottle
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citric fruits, mandarin, pine and caramel. Flavor of biscuits, caramel malts, a bit stuffy hops and sweetish fruits. Strong carbonation, too biscuity and earthy flavor. Usually I don’t like Mt. Hood that much but this was decent.

Zupastan (74) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2013
33cl bottle @ home; from Geers Oostakker; side-by-side tasting with 4 others; pours hazy orange with big white head; low carbo; smell has some sweetness, wood; taste is quite bitter, dry, oily, long bitter aftertaste. Nice!

esp0r (1752) - NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle enjoyed at a hotel room in Copenhagen
Orange hazy, big frothy head. Smells of citrus zests, grapes and caramel. Moderate sweet, apple peel, zests, some fruity tones and malts. Moderate bitter, fruit peel. Ok experiment, but not very exciting
