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.

Valgreen (718) - DENMARK - SEP 7, 2013
Tap @ fairbar Aarhus. Slightly clouded dark orange, medium off white head, nice lacing. Aroma, it feels old, not mich hop aroma left, malty, smells like a tuborg classic. Taste, better than the aroma, but still old, malty, slightly hoppy, some berrie motes.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2013
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 27 July 2013) Hazy dark amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, toast, grass, hay, dried apricots and slightly earthy hops. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, treacle toffee, apricots and a grassy, earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Interesting with only noble hops in an IPA, but this worked out quite well. Nice one.

olio (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2013
33 cl bottle
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Aroma of grape fruits, hops, some grass and goose berry bush. Flavor of caramel malts, grape fruits, goose berries and some wooden notes. Medium carbonation, bitter fruity palate with a harsh malty finish. Some weird off-flavors. Not very pleasant.

Garrold (1724) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Tap at Brewdog, Leeds. This has the exact same aroma as the first beer I ever drank, about 30 years ago. That was Wards Bitter, brewed up until 1999 in Sheffield. It tasted not unlike it too! Sold.. to the gentleman with the big nose..

Peu d amertume, un final terreux, racines. Cette single hop est très agréable et discrète

kappldav123 (5167) - GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark golden, nice head. Mild-hoppy aroma. Starts flowery-hoppy, modest soapy. Dry background, not too intense. Finish milder. Okay.
