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.

Weak fruty aroma, not so pleasant also a bit of yeast! Looks great foam stays and cristal clear. Taste starts as nice hoppy, but after a second only bitterness stays. Too much greapfruit. No need to try another one!

Botella de 33 cl en casa 13-01-14 caducidad en 08-05-15 6.8 vol comprada en 2d2dspuma. Tomada junto con su pareja "Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe IPA" de 6.9 vol. --Color ámbar anaranjado oscuro con posos en suspensión y espuma blanca persistente --Aroma afrutados (frutas tropicales pińa melocotón...) seguido de aromas maltosos, no tan herbáceo como la Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe IPA --Cuerpo medio bastante cremoso y facil de beber, mas pastoso que la Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe IPA, que a medida que calienta se notan mas los sabores afrutados y maltosos. --Sabores afrutados seguido de ligeros toques herbáceos y maltosos dejando un retrogusto no tan amargo como su pareja Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe IPA Bastante buena en general, un poco mas afrutada, con toques mas maltosos y con menos sabores herbáceos y retrogusto amargo que su hermana de la "Mikkeller Single Hop Simcoe IPA". Me gusto mas que su pareja ya que presenta un sabor mas equilibrado sin destacar en exceso ninguno de sus ingredientes. Para repetir y repetir sin problema

Always great to taste a hop by itself. More educational than pure pleasure, as this series has a serious onion, fennel and rubber problem.

jamestulloch (1223) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle from Vino Wines. Hazy amber body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Medium off-white head that leaves lots of sticky lacing. Bright aroma of orange, lime and yeast. Flavour of tangy citrus, orange, creamy malt and pine - very dry and spritzy. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. A fantastic hop that’s showcased perfectly here.
