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.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2014
This brew pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a medium thick foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, fruit and hops. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, ripe fruit and earthy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a short tropical fruit and hops aftertaste. I assume this bottle is older despite being bought recently, but it is tough to blame the store and not the brewer for not providing dating. Decent overall.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; cloudy dirty amber pour with a small frothy off white head, tangerine and grapefruit aroma, taste has light tropical fruit with some caramel, quite aggressive carbonation.

330ml bottle from Thistle News, Aberdeen. Muddy dark reddish amber brown, reasonable head. Pineapple hop aroma. Dry cereal resin hop flavour. Bitter citrus aftertaste. Sharp and biting. Not the best in series.

Botella de 33 cl tomada en casa, de 2d2dspuma en abril de 2013. Otra mas de la serie con cuerpo medio algo oleoso y denso con aromas ligeramente especiados y florales. Sabor también ligeramente florales y tal vez frutos secos (almendras) con un final ligeramente resinoso. Bastante bueno y para repetir a la primera oportunidad.

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to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good.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…
