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.

SinH4 (251) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 28, 2014
As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). First, a weird biological lab smell, then honey. Sweet-bitter, becoming very boozy/lab-like towards the end. Good sweet-bitter finish.

Pours dark caramel brown with a small off white head and good lacing. Aroma is caramel malts with floral and pine hop bitterness. Taste is intense pine and floral bitterness slightly balanced with caramel malts.

an average aroma didn’t inspire, but it was easy drinkin enough. 95 ibu provided plenty o bitter in the finish. citrus peel, grassy flavor, with a hint of spice."

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 5, 2014
This brew pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a medium thick foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, fruit and hops. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, ripe fruit and earthy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a short tropical fruit and hops aftertaste. I assume this bottle is older despite being bought recently, but it is tough to blame the store and not the brewer for not providing dating. Decent overall.

RichTheVillan (3471) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; cloudy dirty amber pour with a small frothy off white head, tangerine and grapefruit aroma, taste has light tropical fruit with some caramel, quite aggressive carbonation.

JohnRMurdoch (3404) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Thistle News, Aberdeen. Muddy dark reddish amber brown, reasonable head. Pineapple hop aroma. Dry cereal resin hop flavour. Bitter citrus aftertaste. Sharp and biting. Not the best in series.

angel77 (1092) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 19, 2014
Botella de 33 cl tomada en casa, de 2d2dspuma en abril de 2013. Otra mas de la serie con cuerpo medio algo oleoso y denso con aromas ligeramente especiados y florales. Sabor también ligeramente florales y tal vez frutos secos (almendras) con un final ligeramente resinoso. Bastante bueno y para repetir a la primera oportunidad.

Bottle. Pours hazy and cloudy amber with a large, frothy light beige head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is earthy, herbal, and grassy stale and oxidized hops, biscuit and cookie malt. Flavor is stale and oxidized hops, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.
