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.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark amber color. Aromas of raisiny caramel, toffee, black currant leaves and menthol. Taste of toffee, raisins, caramel, menthol and black currant leaves. Full body. Fairly similar to Hop Series Galena, just more menthol and black currant.

Desverger (1841) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle (BB 04/14) from BarleyWine, CPH - amber pour with medium off-white head. Aroma and taste is sweet fruity and malty, spicy hop bite and medley of citrus and tropical fruits on the palate, caramel malty, with nice mouhfeel. Very good.

JohnRMurdoch (3248) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2014
330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Hazy reddish amber brown, good foamy head. Spicy woody resin grain hop aroma. Dry soapy lemon biscuit hop flavour. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Good but not outstanding member of the single hop series.

rdixon77 (668) - Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Hazy orange brown with a ton of sediment and a little ring. Big caramel malts in the nose. Taste is caramel and resinous. Big bitter after, fairly sweet and dry. Okay. Maybe a bit past prime.

rumproasts (2863) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
bottle. Deep amber with one finger head. Sweet malty body. Similar to the Galena with quite a bit of citrus, but a little more bitterness.

Un poco flojo este lúpulo. ..pero no esta mal...quizás demasiado turbia la cerveza. .pero bien balanceada. ..

SlackerMads (1549) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle. Unclear deep orange with a thick good lacing foamy off white head. Aroma is citrus, dry grass, melon, peach, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Long bitter hoppy finish.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Reduced to half off, I should know better than to spend my coin on old beer by now. Copper dead yeast soup with a slowly fading large tan topper. Aroma of caramel, amber, biscuit, grassy hops and some peach. Taste is bready and floral with caramel, wort and stalky notes. Aggressively bitter, I don’t like this hop all on its own very much.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 ,,,,Caña en el lúpulo en 22-02-2014. Color ámbar oscuro con espuma blanca poco persistente. Aromas intensos a maltas ligeramente dulces y predominando las resinas. sabores muy maltosos con toques de frutas pasas, uvas, higos... con amargo pastoso y resinoso final pronunciado. Bastante buena con cuerpo medio y con sabores intensos. ,,,,Botella de 33 cl en casa. mayo de 2013 probada junto con la serie galena. Aroma a ligero tostado. Cuerpo ligero medio fácil de beber, color un poco mas tostado y oscuro que la serie galena, turbio y con espuma blanca. Sabor algo mas dulce y con amargo seco final mas oleoso y menos resinoso que la galena. Muy buena y para repetir claro.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a translucent dark copper from the bottle with dissipating off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is malty sweetness, caramel and pils, slight grassiness on the back end. Taste is less malty, better balance, but the hops have definitely fallen off. Lasting bitterness, bit of burn on the way down. Definitely not fresh, but interesting concept.
