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.

33 cl bottle. Light murdy brown, huge head. Taste and aroma a bit rubber-like. Bubblegum notes too. Very bitter (102 ibu). Thanks to Mikkeller R&D I now know that sorachi will never be my favourite hop...

mR_fr0g (3135) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle at five points brewery. Hazed vibrant burnt orange colour with a long lasting off white foam. Nice classic funky lime coconut aroma. Flavour is mod sweet cara malt. Good sorachi character great stuff.

minutemat (1653) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Part of a 5 bottle tasting. Seems a colourful one this, and possibly a little confused. Some definite bubblegum, tropical fruits and a moderate bitterness. Perfect with spicy Asian finger food.

Flummoxed indeed. Thought I’d had the Nelson. Ah well. Sorachi is ace. If a little odd. Odd is good. Thankfully.

Up with citra as my favourite hop. It always seems to surprise me. And it has the best name for a hop in the world. Although, if someone names a hop Ernest then that will be the best.

JohnRMurdoch (3288) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2013
330ml bottle from Great Grog. Reddish brown colour, reasonable head. Flowery fruity hop aroma. Flowery biscuit grapefruit hop flavour. Citrus aftertaste. Quite different from other beers in this series but still good.

from Erzbierschof - light hazy reddish-amber beer with a persistent beige foam; a fair hoppy aroma of coconut with notes of lemon, some earthy woody notes, almondy finish with a solid bitterness, more notes of coconuts and hints of wood
