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.

TimE (4347) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 7, 2012
light amber color, big caramel and piney nose, but myth was a bit oxadized. Not as lively or fresh as the tet. Clearly not in top shape.

Butters (3991) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Sampled side by side with the galena at The Porter in little five points in Altanta. Both pour a clear amber/copper with ring of offwhite head. but the nugget seams to stick a little better. The aroma of the nugget is a little ’sweeter’ on the nose. Flavor is more bitter than the galena however, and hints of grapefruit and lavender. I prefer the flavor of this one.

Tasting Session of Mikkeller Hop Series: Tasting nr 13. Darker amber coloured beer with some lighter carbonation and a medium slightly off white head. Stronger bitter hoppy hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is smouth with a longer quite bitter fruity touched ending.

Leighton (15382) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Bottle at CPK. Pours ruby with a rich, white foam head. Caramel, toast and light leaves in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with toasted sugar, toasted grass, ripe fruits, berry jam, leaves and light caramel. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Mild sticky finish with dry, toasted grass, orange citrus and mild dirt. Very decent IPA.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 16, 2012
Bottle bought at Cask and drunk at home. Pours amber copper colour with decent bubbly gold head. Aroma is lemon citrus hops, bit of sweetness. Slightly floral. Quite nice. Bit biscuit malt, touch of spice. Taste is lemony, bit of creamy malt, citrus finish. Very drinkable and a bit more bitter than some of the others I have tried. Almost grassy hop at the end. Very nice.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
Reddish copper. Sweet caramel malts. Hops are there but struggles. Tad too sweet and malty.

This one makes me want to find the other 18 varieties. Not the best beer, but not really the point. The aroma is earthy with a bit of resin and florals. The flavor is similar. This isn’t a hop that I have ever used brewing as I normally prefer other. Glad I got to try it hear.
