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.

Wow, one of the best examples ot a Tettnang beers I’ve ever had. That’s unusual for me as it’s usually one of my least fav hops. Poured with an enormous frothy, fluffy, sudsy, foamy, airy, off white head and lots of lace. Color is a clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Flavor is, to me, surprisingly balanced and on the mild side. Plenty of malt and, of course, the Tettnang to stand up to it. Plenty of bitterness, but not in extreme, not a lot of fruit, only hints (not a fan of the overly fruity hops) and some caramel, malt, chewy malt, a little toffee, bread dough, and cookies. Body is perfect for style and same for carbonation. Finish is like flavor and easy while tapering to a moderate length. Really good. too pricey for session but certainly of exceeding quality.
