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.

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.

kappldav123 (5890) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass golden-copper coloured, nice head. Modest soapy aroma. Starts dry-hoppy, a bit wheaty, fine spicy. Some salty hints. Finish drier, still a bit soapy. Okay.

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2013
from Erzbierschof - pretty clear dark orange beer with a poor head retention; aroma of tea and horse stable; a good malt backbone, light sweetness, assertive and solidly bitter; dry and long aftertaste of tea, herbs, almonds and an increasing never ending bitterness - very interesting

allmyvinyl (9448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2013
Keg at The Southern. Pours a hazy amber with thin white head. Resin and caramel aromas. Taste is well-balanced between sweet and bitter. Palate a little thin, but good carbonation. Not bad.

kidmartinek (4664) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Very cloudy copper with a frothy, dirty head. Sticky, lace blankets the glass. The aroma is earthy bitterness with a strong malt backbone, and though the hops dominate, it is balanced. Smooth fruity bitterness with a strong maltiness characterize the flavor, though the beer is definitely hop forward. Strong but still smooth.

Foffern (1682) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 12, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a golden amber colour with a sand-coloured medium head. Aroma of fruity and herbal hops with grapefruit and resin. Very powerful hops in the flavour, feels very grassy and there’s also resin and lots of bitter grapefruits.Sweet and fruity at first but the hops are very dominating in the aftertaste. Slick and soft mouth feel, and a heavy lingering bitterness. Starts well but the heavy bitterness makes the beer a bit unbalanced in my opinion.
