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.

This pours hazy amber, with medium off-white foam head. This beer was brewed in 2011, so is not bitter nor hop-aromatic anymore. Because of Dranken Geers: huge beer shop but not serious for the shelflives! More than 3-4 months for a single hop IPA is a non-sense. All the identity and typicity of the beer is in its hop variety. Hop flavours and bitterness decrease really quickly. Furthermore IBU of that brew were initially quite light. It smells old ale with some remaining hop notes but very light. Clean with a good mouthfeel, great beer but not an IPA anymore.

Hazy amber beer, big cream coloured head. Softish palate thanks to the head. Creamy malt. Mt Hood comes across as a slightly earthy hop but itís mild compared to Brambling Cross. Mild grapefruit thatís not too bitter. Mild tangerine and a trace of peach. Finishes semi dry and mildly bitter.

11.2oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark amber. About the color of the label. Aroma of big tropical citrus with loads of grapefruit and a little caramel malt. Taste is light bitter. Orange and grapefruit citrus with a dose of caramel. Light bodied with a slightly thin yet somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. Iím really digging the citrus in this one.

Bottle shared october 20th 2012. This is one of the Hop Series editions that make the concept really interesting, for me at least. While there are plenty of single hop ipas showcasing the c-hops and other great american ipa hops, versions like the Mt Hood serves a good opportunity to get more familiar with the characteristics of hops that people may not know that well. As is the example with me and Mt Hood. The beer has a hazy copper body and a low beige head. Aroma of bread, anise and grass, as expected not a typical modern ipa aroma. Taste of caramel, spices, handwash soap and a slight citrus touch. It delivers a good clean bitterness, and leaves a dry aftertaste with malt.

Medium offwhite head. Clear amber body with light carbonation. Tropical fruit and strawberry aroma with touches of earthy gasoline. Dry-sweet strawberry and pineapple taste with resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry resiny pineapple aftertaste with tropical fruit notes. Nice, drinkable, but perhaps not that remarkable. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
