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.

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh…

DiarmaidBHK (3583) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2013
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 (3798) - 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)

floydian1 (1065) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 16, 2013
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 (1089) - 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 (6916) - 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.
