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 from Stirchley Wines. Pours with minimal head, slightly hazy from fine sediment. Big fruit aromas - although these are tropical and juicy, they arenít as overpowering as some mango & pineapple-scented beers - more of a rounded fruitiness. This comes through also in the flavour, and the hop elements seem very balanced, allowing some malt flavour through with a hint of herbaceous spiciness on the end. Good mouthfeel - not as one-dimensional as some single hop beers. First time Iíve come across this hop and Iíd love to try more beers where itís used either alone or in a blend. Seems to work well on itís own though. Would certainly drink this beer again with pleasure.

SinH4 (1244) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
As goes for all the Hop Series beers Iíve 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 beerís forte. other than that, another avg entry. not quite worth the coin on itís 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 (348) - 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Disclaimer: bottle 6 months out-of-date but...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.
