COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

drjay44 (2579) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2011
33 cl. bottle. Pours a medium, lasting, white head, with attractive lacing, over a slightly hazy amber (SRM 8) body....nose is light grass, pineapple, touch of resin pine...taste is light toffee/caramel, light resin, finishing bitter....mouth feel medium, carbonation adds a creamy texture. While obviously and IPA this lacks depth and complexity in the hop back bone, which also dominates the malts too much. I applaud the experiment, the results were a mild disappointment. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6
