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.

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). Concentrated fruit sweetness, but also bready sweetness. The bitterness here is very easy. Interesting.

"a rather pedestrian aroma on this one, but the flavor was pleasantly spicy and was the beer’s forte. other than that, another avg entry. not quite worth the coin on it’s own, but cool as part of the series."

Bottle. Dark hazy orange with a firm off-white head. The aroma is densely malty with some fruitiness--pineapple, melon, some grassy notes. Not fresh but that was to be expected. Flavour is smooth malty, again some fruit, mild bitterness. A little peppery even.

Hop_Hedonist (291) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2014
Disclaimer: bottle 6 months out-of-date but... Great pour - Massive head - as usual for this single-hop series, sweet malt totally dominates - piney/herbal hops just poke through the malt - pleasant, not a bad beer by any measure but mediocre flavour.

Hazy orange with off-white head. Nose yeasty and herbal hops. Taste medium bitter. Astringent finish.

Botella de 33 cl tomada en casa. De 2d2dspuma en mayo de 2013. Bastante buena como toda la serie. Toques de frutas, algo herbáceos y no muy amargos. Bastante interesante y para repetir sin problema.

Buongiorgio00 (933) - - JAN 25, 2014
Esempio di hop series con il palisade, che dovrebbe essere intenso e agrumato e invece risulta un po’ smorzato, mentre nel gusto prevale piů che altro il malto dolce e una leggera speziatura erbacea. Poco amara, ma comunque il risultato č piacevole da bere.

47 theoretical IBU. Pours a translucent dark copper from the bottle with dissipating off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is malty sweetness, caramel and pils, slight bread on the back end. Taste follows, the hops have definitely fallen off. Easy to drink, good carbonation. Definitely not fresh, but interesting concept.

Bottle. Deep amber appearance with average white head. Malty nose with caramel to the fore and honey, oranges and a trace of medicinal cough syrup. Tastes like an amber ale with probably the lowest hop presence of Mikkeller’s single hop series. Quite light bodied for the ABV with medium carbonation.
