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.

Okay so this bottle is 6 months ’out of date’ but... Decent spicy/herbal/raisin aroma waft - good head on it - strong caramel malt forward taste then the spicy/herbal/raisin tettnanger kicks in - good bitterness balances out the initial hit of very sweet malt - so it’s still pretty alive and vibrant enough to enjoy... although tettnanger isn’t high on my list as I prefer more citrus/tropical fruit driven hops and less heavy malt.

Drank side by side with the 19 other variants of the serie. I would like to note up front that - since these beer’s are no longer in production, they were not fresh. this rating should thus be viewed with that in mind, and can shed a light on the ’ageing’ differences between the variants. They were probably better fresh... Pours rather clear, dark amber, small white foam. Smell is more sweet, orange/apples. Taste is dusty, but also full and a bit sweet. Some metallic aspects underneath.

MarkoNm (2158) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 11, 2015
Pours a dark amber color, slightly hazy and chunky, topped with a tan colred head - lasting. Malty aroma, caramel notes, some biscuity and molasses notes. Tastes opens with some nice sweetness, followed by moderate bitterness. Not bad, among the better ones from the series.

SinH4 (2183) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Bitter from the beginning. Smells bitter, but not much more. Sweetness kicks in a bit later on the tongue. More or less a nice lager taste for being that old.

"mild noble hops present in the aroma and flavor. for being so low ibus it was very nice. a session ipa, smooth, obviously not overly bitter, but still had a presence, and was soft on the palate."

Found it in local Madrid beer shop. It’s true Mikkeller! The taste is unbelievable! The palate is not that good, but I can leave with it...

JohnRMurdoch (4195) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 5, 2014
330ml bottle from Thistle News, Aberdeen. Hazy reddish amber brown, reasonable head. Grain resin hop aroma. Boiled sweet flavour and aftertaste. Interesting hop but not one of the best.
