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.

mstockton (224) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a decent head. Aroma has some typical IPA-hop smell to it, but with some sour-like odor. Taste is decidedly malty for an IPA and a bit smoky. A sticky feel after the swallow and a bit of a funky aftertaste. Not my favorite IPA from these guys but fun to try the different hops.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours golden amber with a tiny bit of sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit as well as some caramel malt. Flavour is caramel, citrus, and grapefruit – with a dry finish.

Bottle. Pours deep Gold/Amber. Aroma of fruity hop (similar to apricot and grass) and light malt. Flavor is much the same and finishes with a smooth, balanced bitter. Moutfeel is medium body with high carbonation. Overall, Good Stuff!
