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.

Big beige head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Deep tropical fruit and pineapple aroma with wooden spicy notes. Dry pineapple and gasoline taste with resiny wooden spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly mealy mouthfeel. Dry spicy peppery tropical fruit aftertaste with pineapple and grape notes. Interesting, drinkable, but with some off taste that I can’t identify, and don’t like that much. Still a good and richly flavoured beer. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Meh...a decent beer at best. Aroma mostly caramel malt with notes of hay. Pour was a nice enough medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was heavy on the caramel with an underlying very green hoppiness. A mix of grass and burnt hay. Weird combination, though I was happy to pick out any hop flavor in the beer. Finish was slightly bitter and sticky sweet. Decent carbonation.

33cl bottle. brewed 2012-04-26, best before 2014-04-26. No batch info. orange colour with a medium big white had that settled down fast. Aroma is fresh and laden with tropical fruits. Notes of caramel. Flavour is mild. Some tropical fruits, but more malts. Notes of bread and yeast again. Some sweet notes.

Yay! Another pitch black review on a chilly eve at the river lookout. I can smell my beer from a distance. Sweet mandarin oranges out if the can, spearmint double your pleasure gum stick (mild), honey, smooth caramel, orange pulp - very nice aroma. Good taste too - no crazy hop smashing on the palate which is nice, sweet orange, tangy citrus, I think ginger, bit powdery taste, light caramel, drying feel, gets quite bitter when I start pounding it back. My balls are cold and my feet are void of heat - how am I supposed to get through two more beers out here?

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
Tap at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell - 26/09/12. Slightly hazy dark amber with a decent off-white head. Citrus on the nose, lemon, mandarins and spice. Taste comprises bitter orange, light caramel tones, citrus and a touch of ginger. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation, a little too much so for my liking.

Nugget hops... citrus and green on the nose, orange and grapefruit on the palate and a long(ish) finish. Oh, and the beer is excellent.
