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.

zacgillbanks (4238) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A hazy dark amber beer with floral fruity notes, tropical fruits and elderflower followed by orange and a creamy mouthfeel to the finish. Excellent!

Tide (2821) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Amber color, white head. Bittersweet taste with caramel, citrus, a bit of roasted aroma, grass and a bit of hops. Very mild body for an IPA. Bittersweet finish with caramel and citrus. A nice demonstration of Tettnanger hop, but quite unbalanced.

CPH2200 (345) - DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
33 cl bottle. Cloudy orange brown colour. Creamy head. Weak yeasty aroma. Not very bitter (38 ibu) but fruity and refreshing. Dry bitter mouthfeel. Ok for a low bitternes ipa but not that interesting either.

lusikka (7680) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of caramel, some weak herbal notes and quite heavy maltiness. Flavour of heavy caramel malts, grassy bitterness, sweet fruits and weak herbal notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet, warming and bitter. Decent, but this hop is just not the most suitable hop for single hop IPAs. Base beer with it’s sweetness comes through too much.

bartlebier (3306) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2013
Backlog: 33cl bottle Geers 2012, sampled Summer 2012. Rating this from notes, yet still asynchronously "side by side" with the Tettnang Hopfenkrone Pils: the confrontation proves that the delicate grass, citrus & white pepper Tettnanger seems to be an ideal Pils/pale ale hop, and easily loses its edges when confronted with caramalty Vienna or darker malts, where it leaves a somewhat tired and besieged impression. Remember this beer was dominated by tasty base ESB-like caramalts, given an indefinite citrus & minty edge. Extra points for establishing a precedent with the brave uncool didacticism of this series.
