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.

Bottle from Perfect Pour. Pours brown with khaki head with lots of white bits floating around. Leaves lots of lacing in the glass. Has a bit of pine on the nose. Very sweet on the tongue with a hint of pine. Finishes clean. Pretty quaffable as long as you don’t look at.

erickok (3701) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - NOV 7, 2013
A very fruity hop, to my surprise, and a bit herbal. Taste has moderate bitterness, but simple perhaps. Base beer is very well developed and nicely clean. Good start of a Hop Series tasting session. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

Poured into a snifter at cheese shop. Dark amber look. Light head, floral hoppy aroma. Nice smooth flow. Delish!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle at home. Appears hazy dark amber in the glass with a loose yellowy-tinged white head that laces well. Aroma has hoppy fruity elements with tangerines, pineapple, and pine-needles to the fore on top of a toasty caramel malt bill. Taste is dry and earthy with a mild sweetness and medium herbal hop bitterness that lingers. Good balance of malt and hop with pleasant smooth mouthfeel and medium body.

Bottel from Erzbierschof - Hazy amber color, thick off-white head, good lace - aroma of pine, caramel anf hints of apricot - pine, resinous, caramel malt flavor - medium body, good carboanation, long dry bitter finish - this one appear to be more bitter than the firsts i’ve tried in this serie. Good but i’m not fan of this hops

andrewturba (1003) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours a hazy copper with fair off white head leaving some lace up the glass. Aroma is earthy, moderate sweet tropical fruits, slightly herbal and caramel malts and an overall good malty backbone. Flavour is earthy, pine, grapefruit, mild sweetness, low-medium bitterness that does linger a while, some herbal notes as well as a good malty caramel backbone.

sebletitje (6819) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2013
Draft. Ambrée trouble, col blanc cassé. Arôme de pin léger, moyen caramel avec cette petite pointe de renfermé distincte - pungent de ce type de houblon, malts foncés. Palais est ici une balance subtile des malts et du houblon qui rend un côté citronné toujours agréable voire herbacé. Fin de bouche conserve un léger relent de levure avec un malt que je trouve plus relevé presque biscuité. Pétillance moyenne pour une amertume rappelant un houblonné vert frais.

Beerenberger (1481) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Aroma of raisins and an earthiness. Pours a cloudy copper with a one finger large bubble, mostly diminishing, off- white head and moderate lacing. The taste is moderately bitter. Floral, raisins, hay, and an earthiness. Crisp dry finish. Medium-light body and crisp carbonation. A lingering hopp /fruity aftertaste. Overall, I liked this beer. (Judging from the other ratings, it’s like persimmons…either you like them or you don’t.) Would drink again.
