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.

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh…

Bottle from Brewdog shop. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, peach, pine, caramel and hops. Bitter finish with citrus, pine and a bit of peach. Very nice IPA, surprisingly smooth considering the high IBU.

14/IX/13 - on tap @ Hoppy Loft (Delirium café, Brussels) - BB: n/a (2013-851) Thanks to KyotoLefty for sharing the beer!

Clear deep orange to red beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: fruity, exotic fruits mainly, sweet, spicy, bit sugary impression. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sweet, malty, jam, red forest fruits, citrus, sweet, pretty bitter and spicy. Aftertaste: fruity, dry, piny hops, honey, sweet and fruity, red fruit jam. Weird and interesting, I liked it.

KyotoLefty (7574) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2013
Tap at Hoppy Loft. Light brown, cloudy, with lace. Spicy nose, grass and chocolate, but a bit faint. Spicy orange flavor, speculoos, strawberry jam, caramel, sweet and cake-like. A weird IPA. Interesting.

Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft during Zwanze Day shenanigans. Appearance is hazy, murky fox orange, slightly off-white head. Smell is big grapefruit, very hoppy, very fruity, touch caramel, small touch of pine. Taste is pretty bitter, slight caramel malts, grapefruit, slight overripe peaches, some bitter herbs in the back, pretty fruity, faint herbs. Full, very slightly yeasty body. Pretty nice, def. neater than the single hop / hop series Mikkeller’s I had a long time ago. (Thx! for sharing people!)
