330mL bottle generously sent across the pond by stobbe74. The bottle pours copper with gold edges and a bit hazy when the yeasty sediment is involved. The hop laden liquid supports a near white sort of head. The aroma offers up moderate levels of spicy hops earthy hops and a light sense of both citrus and floral. The taste has yummy spicy notes rolling into mild citrus and earthiness. The rich hop notes come across very well and make me wish I had a big bottle of this stuff.

Orange pour. Very light aroma. More malt and biscuit aromas than hops. Flavor is light on the hops again, bready notes, light spice. Not bad at all!

A lot of the Mikkeller single hop series I find to be quite similar. There are a few that stand out a bit more, this being one of them. This is a type of hop I am strongly guessing I have not had. I am glad I have had the chance to taste it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample from 33 cl bottle at SBWF 2011. Almost clear amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, noble hops, grass, caramel and honey. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet, light dry and floral. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. A bit meh. Tettnanger shouldn’t be used in this way, it hasn’t got the levels of aroma compounds needed for a good IPA. Both the aroma and the taste is a bit weird.
