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.

Smooth soft bitterness. Hop more floral, softly toned. Blood orange, kumquat essences with some earthy pine and tea notes. Buttery mouthfeel. Noble hop varietal makes for a smooth refreshing not quite pale ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
bottle. Deep amber with one finger head. I’ve had quite a few of this series at this point. They’re obviously all very similar other than the hops. I’m quite unfamiliar with Tettnanger. This is particularly sweet with very mild bitterness. There’s a subtle pepperiness also.

Balazs (750) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2014
From notes. Clear, with an orange color and a tan head. Caramel, honey, hints of fruits like grapes and apple, some hay in the aroma. Medium dense with well matching carbonation. Bitter, slightly sour finish.

fiammanghilla (421) - Genova, ITALY - FEB 22, 2014
Bottiglia 33cl @ 28 erbe. Ambrata con schiuma persistente. Piuttosto amara e dall'aroma un po' stucchevole. Single hop non troppo riuscita. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 5, 2014
Botella de 33 cl en casa, mayo de 2013. De 2d2dspuma. Otra mas de la serie y como todas bastante buena, muy bien equilibrada en conjunto, con poco sabor y regusto amargo final. 38 ibus nada mas. Cuerpo medio. Buena en general.

SlackerMads (1239) - DENMARK - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Unclear deep orange with a thick good lacing foamy off white head. Aroma is discreet with light green herbal notes, dusty, dry flowers, fruit, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Aroma wise short finish, but has a long light dry mouthfeel.

jbruner (1964) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2013
38 theoretical IBU. Pours a cloudy copper from the bottle with particles in suspension, dissipating off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is malty sweetness, caramel and toffee, slight grassiness on the back end. Taste follows, hint of earth, but the hops have definitely fallen off. Definitely not fresh, but interesting concept.

tnkw01 (955) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle. Loved the ideal behind this but way too expensive to try everyone. So I waited on trying these. Almost missed out. Last bottle on the shelve for this retired beer. Dark golden color, slightly hazy. Lots of floaties. Medium head. Taste is typical IPA, except, the aftertaste is not as bitter. Nice aroma, citrus, grapefruit.

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh…
