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.

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.

Tap. Minimal light tan head; very murky brown orange. Faintly pungent hop aromas, grapefruit, and restrained. Flavor is similar, with grapefruit and woody hops. Medium body.

jamaty (1750) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 28, 2015
Marrón de espuma cremosa ocre. Aroma lupulado, herbal, notas de bizcocho y licor. Todo ello en el aroma, junto con uvas y caramelo, en medio de un notable amargor, sobre todo al final, y muy fuerte en el postgusto. Bien de cuerpo y de gas.

Rating #1163 - Was shocked to find a Mikkeller tap in Regina (first trip to Bushwakker ever 07,07,2014) - 10 oz pour, clear golden amber pour with a white cap. Aroma is currant, grapefruit. Palate is toasted malt sweetness, light piney, citrusy stickiness. Pretty tasty.

DialSquare (4062) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
12oz bottle from the Party Source in Cincy/Kentucky. Brown pour with off-white head and visible floaties. Aroma of herbal, citrus, spice, grass. Tastes are bittersweet, red fruit, caramel, herbal, yeasty. Not sure I’m getting what I should out of this single hops. Would probably have to do them side by side and even then. Generally, decent to sip on.

As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Fresh and light smell. More ananas, just like galena. Cellar smell. A bit bretty? Maybe this bottle was infected. Anyway, bready-bitter malt taste, but a different bitterness than most other hops. More tangy.
