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.

Tortman18 (175) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours a very unique, opaque mahogany with a huge 3 finger, off white head that lingers around. Not much lacing and almost no carbonation. The nose is very hoppy with a surprisingly high amount of yeast and malt. Tropical fruits are very much present here with a slight touch of caramel. The mouth is very bitter, but not an overpowering bitter. The hops in this series are definitely citrus hops. A lot of grapefruit and lemon. There is a malt presence, but it’s subtle. Not a huge beer, but a slow sipper none the less. After this beer warmed up, it took on a lot of barleywine characteristics. Very malty and yeasty with a lot of dark fruits.

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. ..

Smells yeasty, resinous with some toffee sweetness. Tastes floral and honey sweet but ends very dry and very, very bitter. Palate has just enough slickness to match the dryness. Definitely not bad but of the single hop IPAs I've tried (eight in all), I'd say it's middle of the pack.

HKdIPA (129) - HONG KONG - DEC 6, 2013
Great copper color with relatively thick head and lacing. Very floral aroma, somehow smells like sawdust - though not in a bad way. Taste starts out incredibly sweet, honey, flowers, finishes bitter and quite dry. Nice thick palate. Very interesting beer but too bitter to drink a lot of.

rdixon77 (451) - 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.

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.

jbruner (1998) - 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.

SlackerMads (1259) - DENMARK - 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.

weark (219) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle from Erzbiershof - Hazy amber color, persistent creamy beige head - resinous, pine, earthy, caramalt aroma - flavor are the same, resinous, pine, earthy hops with good malt backbone (caramalt) and hints of yeast - medium body, strong bitterness, dry, long earthy bitter and dry finish - bitterness showing more than others in this series

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.
