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.

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.

Draught@CPH BF 2011. Slightly hazy amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is wood, resin, grass and some sweet malts to balance it up. Flavour is peach, citrus and soem toffee.

Foffern (1304) - 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.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - APR 11, 2013
Cloudy dark golden liquid with a medium offwhite head. Pretty sweet aroma with some citrus notes. Taste is more grassy, with alot of malty sweetness. Nothing special though.

PriorL (1989) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl Bottle. Blind tasting of all 19 Mikkeller Hop Series beers. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: amber beer, stable white head. Nose: rather sweet, some peppers maybe. Taste: nice sweet aftertaste, followed by a bitterness.

mikedR (1348) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2013
Sampled as part of a hop education class. Much more spicy in taste than Bravo or Williamette. Not as smooth as the Nugget. The spicy note appears to be ginger and pepper. As a beer, not as good as B, but maybe a tick better than W. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (2791) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2013
Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13: fjerde av i alt 19 i serien, og i likhet med Warrior opplevdes denne som mild for sine 90 IBU. Stikkord var foirsiktig, finesse, deilig blomsteraroma.
