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.

ekstedt (5317) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2011
Bottle (33 cl) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Shady amber, medium off-white head. Bisquity malt aroma, with spicy and herbal hop, notes of aniseed. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Fairly dry with a firm bitterness.

suprchunk (2034) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Pours a coppery amber color. Nice sized white head floats atop the liquid below. Peppery and hoppy aroma. Slight bit of malt in there as well. Nice flavor of hops and malt. A bit too dry and not enough hops. Better than the Mt. Hood version, and a decent tasting dry version of IPA. More hops and a bit more body would make this one superb. But it’s still very good on its own.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Pours clear golden amber with a good sized soapy beige head. The aroma has lots of floral, flowery and powdery traits along with some toasty malt hiding in the background. Medium body that’s hints at husks with lightly sharp carbonation. The taste starts off with woody, powdery, floral, citrusy hops along with caramel malt that seems a bit sweeter than others in the series. The finish is quite resiny and dry with grapefruit, piny and floral hops. Really nice IPA, but on the abrasive side.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle from Beer Planet. Bright amber body with huge puffy head. Nose of hops, really nice. Taste is a very good Nugget hop that is quite sweet, bitter and has nice caramel flavours throughout. Really delectable.

BoBoChamp (5355) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2011

TBone (12335) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2011
Bottled 330ml (Beer Planet)
Clear amber color, good beige/off-white head, lace. Nice aroma, not very strong: herbal and peppery, a bit earthy and woody too. Medium-bodied. This beer has quite bitter front, peppery bitterness. Then similar sweet caramelly-fruity maltyness like in all other Hop Series -beers. Relatively short finish for 95 IBU beer. Resiny-fruity notes. Nugget is a nice hop, but perhaps needs some more aromatic pair for nose.

Borup (5620) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2011
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011. Hazy amber colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of hops, fruit, malt and with a bitter finish.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
100ml, draught. Initial huge creamy, white-beige head that left fragile lacing behind. Golden-brown body. Moderate aroma of tart bitter fruits. Spicy fruits in flavour featuring lighter notes of malty sweetness leading to an outcome of bitter hops. Another good one in the series, but not among the very best of them (Copenhagen Beer Festival, 28.05.2011).

hallinghansen (1881) - Odense S, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle @ Odense tasting. Clear amber body with a medium offwhite head. Aroma is peach, hops, notes of apple and herbal notes. Flavor is bitter hops, peach, berries and apple.
