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.

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 (2179) - 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.

Reddish copper. Sweet caramel malts. Hops are there but struggles. Tad too sweet and malty.

Anova167 (296) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
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.

Bottle from Kihøskh, Copenhagen
Parallel with Magnum and Tettnanger
bb 22.03.13, possibly 3 months old

Beautiful amber color, hazy, with a generous thick head; it has a nice fine perlage. This one as well shows some cream and paper aroma; light magnesia, light sweat. Dry toffee and caramel flavor (apparently drier than the others); the hop gives a fair amount of resins too, well present till the end; even without a fruit profile, these resins give some shine to the beer. Strong and long final.
Good.

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - FEB 17, 2012
Non male come birra ma e’ un’ipa abbastanza anonima... Si presenta ambrata e un po’ sporca buon cappello di schiuma non molto persistente, sapore anonimo e retrogusto anche, lascia comunque un gradevole sapore un po’ amaricante!
