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.

Copper in color with a white head. Medium malt-bodied with a nice, lighter but defined floral hop balance. Denmark visit ’11 at Mikkeller bar shortly after their single hop series event.

Beautiful amber color, hazy, with a generous thick head; it has a nice fine perlage. This one as well shows some cream and paper aroma; light magnesia, light sweat. Dry toffee and caramel flavor (apparently drier than the others); the hop gives a fair amount of resins too, well present till the end; even without a fruit profile, these resins give some shine to the beer. Strong and long final.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - FEB 17, 2012
Non male come birra ma e’ un’ipa abbastanza anonima... Si presenta ambrata e un po’ sporca buon cappello di schiuma non molto persistente, sapore anonimo e retrogusto anche, lascia comunque un gradevole sapore un po’ amaricante!

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2012
Bottle of 33 cl, hazy amber beer with an orange glow. Large and the term off-white foamy head. The scent has notes of caramel, citrus, eksotuisk fruit and grass. The taste is sweet with notes of caramel, citrus and grass. Moderately bitter finish.

Suttree (5423) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Dark copper, huge beige head (As a side note, does anybody chuckle to themselves when they say some thing about a huge head? I know it’s juvenile, but I can’t help myself.) Very grassy hop aroma. Light, clean and crisp. Some earthy malt. Tasty and very sessionable (even at 6.8%)

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Hazy dark golden with a creamy white head. Musty fruity aroma and taste with notes of pineapple and a caramel taste to the finish.

marcus (7296) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. Pours orange copper with a three finger beige head and a light citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a musty sticky bitter hop finish. Not my favorite in this series.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012
0.33l bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen shared with ClubGonzo and the rest of Bergen Tasting Crew. The Nugget is a hazy orange beer with a light creamy and bubbly off-white head. Aroma is light stingy, notes of pine, some strawberries and hints of thin caramel. Oily to watery mouthfeeling, average to soft carbonation and it’s medium-bodied. Tastes quite bitter from the start. Notes of grass, perhaps some herbal tones?, ends mildly bitter with a lasting bitter aftertaste. Nice enough, but perhaps a bit blend.

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2012
(330ml bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of earth, nuts, florals, caramel, and light bread. Flavor of herbs, florals, nuts, peach, light citrus, biscuit, and earth.
