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.

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.

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 (4910) - 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.

Richmond 19th. Medium orange, baked grapefruit aroma, Flavor matches. OK. I would guess that this was a bit past its peak.

teddybeer (3458) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. Dark coppery colour with a creamy and large white head, with good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma is hoppy, with hints of caramel and citrus. Flavor has notes of fruits where grapes and peaches are present, also orange peel is noticeable. Dry final maintaining the initial bitterness. Creamy texture on palate.

Hazy darkish amber beer. Good off white head. Softish dry palate. Nice creamy malt. The Nugget hops deliver plenty of tangy bitterness but not a lot of fruit. Trace of aniseed. Finishes dry. Not my favourite hop.
