3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Brum. Hazy orange pour with a generous white head. Fragrant nose of citrus and herby hop, Flavour was fruits, caramel, spice with a slight earthiness. Dry bitter finish. Ok, but not my favourite hop from their excellent saga. Think that’s what you call subtle labeling by the way....

Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13: sjette av i alt 19 i serien, og denne luktet sylteagurk og dill. Smaker heldigvis bedre enn den lukter, men minner for mye om rå champignon til å bli en nytelse. IBU 102.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (discounted) from Five Points Bottle Shop (Lumpkin St.) in Athens. Coconut, butter, yeast aromas. Clear, bright copper/brown color, filmy head. Very sweetish initial / coconut and strawberries in mid / finish is pleasant, with a lingering jam-like sweetness and mild bitterness. Thin-medium body. Okay. This one has held up better than some of the others in the series (sampled at the same time). The hops have maintained some integrity.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle (BB:? Wish Mr Mikkeller would entertain the non-avantgardist concept to put a BB stamp on the label, so as to judge these hops by their decay time..)
This crazy Japanese hop is all over the place! - at least in this mix, as I enjoyed it in Troubadour Magma’s edition for it. Soap all over the place, but soap mixed in with exotic fruit juice, well placed on a full malt base, a soapy coat cloaked over a malty--- (etc.) Picked up (stale-ish) lemongrass, which is the one herb that always wastes away in our fridge for weeks after having cooked Thai for once; the kiwi remains a hint, anything else I’d have to guess, as I had a mouth full of soap to come to terms with! - Schizogenetic plus feature: this had the same great round body of all the other Single Hops Series. Hm, weird fruity soapy head + tasty round body...? Mikkeller should re-dub this the Bathing Anna Nicole RIP/IPA!

Bottle, september 15th 2012. Hazy amber body, low beige head. hoppy aroma; lemon grass, peach, bubble gum and pineapple. Malt is more present in the taste, with a balancing caramel added to the pineapple, cocos and citrus taste of the hop. Bitterness is nice and clean, and the beer finishes quite hoppy with a fruity aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy amber with a thick, white, short lived head. Aroma is overwhelmingly of fennel with liquorice and slight hint of mint. Flavour isn’t as well developed, with fennel still dominating with a iron like taste in the background with perhaps a little spice or ginger. Moderate carbonation. Fairly enjoyable although I’m not sure I’d want much more than a bottle an evening.
