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.

andrewturba (920) - 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 (6326) - 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 (1264) - 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.

Bottle from Beer Cartel. Hazy orange/amber, bit of tropical fruit, apricot/peach, pine, grassy, quite dry finish. Not bad.

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy copper amber colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma of green tea, resin and peach. Flavour of strong tangy grassy bitterness, resin, peach, grapefrui, pine needlest and some biscuity maltiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a warming, bitter, biscuity finish. Nice and refreshing.

Barrelbelly (596) - BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2013
Nugget is not really a hop that is tasteful enough to support a beer. Only the grassy bitter hop taste comes through. Further a quite flat and watery beer.
