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.

allmyvinyl (2795) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle shared at home - cheers Steven! Pours a hazy orange with a decent white head. Aromas are muted, some caramel, some dark fruits. and earthiness. Some of those fruits turn into blackcurrants when tasting. Finishes thin, and a bit disappointing.

Ipa ambrata. Il luppolo super galena si fa sentire. E rende la birra profumata e molto amara ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kappldav123 (4700) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark-copper coloured, nice head. Soapy-grasy aroma. Starts dry-grasy, more and more soapy, quite moldy.FInish dry and unbalanced. Not my favourite of this series.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAY 9, 2013
33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours amber, darker than the average, with a big off-white frothy head. Peculiar aroma for an IPA: grassy, licorice notes, and hints of red grape. The flavour is herbal and earthy, slightly toasty, with moderate bitterness. Very nice contrast and balance. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Easy to drink, refreshing, and really pleasant overall.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 25, 2013
Bottle at home. Has a hazy orange amber colour with a frothy beige medium head. A bit faint but pleasant aroma of grassy hops and pine, and feels a bit sour. The flavour is a bit faint too with a touch of grassy hops that accelerates to the end, and some wood. Has a suprisingly watery and silky mouth feel, and a lasting medium bitterness. The IPA is a bit faint and unbalanced all over but has a solid hoppy touch.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with caramel, citrus peel, grapefruit and resin. Fruity, hoppy taste with grapefruit, orange peel, resin, caramel and a solid citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Very nice.

PriorL (1569) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 33cl Bottle. Blind tasting of all 19 Mikkeller Hop Series beers. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: amber beer, stable white head. Nose: chocolate, caramel, hazelnut. Taste: chocolate, rather sweet malts, this beer reminds me most of a ’stout’.
