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.

VsXsV (2451) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
Sample from 33 cl bottle at SBWF 2011. Almost clear amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of candy, dark berries, citrus, caramel, earthy hops, Brittish hops. Reminds me of East Kent Goldings. Medium to high bitter with light sweetness. Feel brittish and refreshing. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Quite tasty, but I’m not a huge fan of the more brittish tasting hops.
