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.

Parallel with Centennial, Citra, Columbus
bb 29.03.13, possibly 3 months old

Hazy amber color; turbulent perlage; generous, compact head. The hop in the aroma and flavor is quite anonymous; the aroma has a light, unpleasant puke trait, light cabbage and dust too; there is the usual caramel and dry toffee flavor of this series, with excessive carbonation, and quite some resins from the hop, especially in the final; the final is bold and bitter.
Not impressive.
