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.

rumproasts (2847) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2014
bottle. Deep amber with small head and quite a bit of sediment. I know this bottle has got to be past prime, but I couldn’t pass it up when I saw it. I love Sorachi Ace hops. Here they’re a bit faded, but it’s still got plenty of solid flavor.

bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Pours a lightly hazed mahogany into the glass, with a generous eggshell head that leaves thick suds lacing. The nose is of caramel and candied oranges. Flavors of caramel, pale malts, mixed citrus, light biscuits and piney bitters finish with a biscuity flour bitterness that lingers appropriately. The drinkability is great, complex and substantive on the palate, but active and light enough to be quaffable. A great single-hop IPA!
