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.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012
Bottle from Kihøskh, Copenhagen
Parallel with Mt. Hood, Galena, Warrior
bb 29.03.13, possibly 3 months old

Hazy amber color, with a medium sized creamy head. Mild aroma, some caramel, and light hop presence. Caramel and toffee flavor, drier than in the Galena, but more drinkable; strong bitterness, mainly with oils, then some resins, eventually a light fruity trace. Strong and long final, with the hop attacking the tongue.
The most balanced of this mini group, a good thirst quencher.
