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.

Deep malty color. Some sediment. Frothy head lasts indefinitely.Aroma is floral and bitter. Taste is light citrus and medium bitterness but a strong malt backbone fights for attention.

mikedR (1334) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2013
Sampled as part of a hop education class. Williamette on steroids. Stronger, and more bitter. Has the same solid body as W. Perhaps more earthy, and a very very subtle chocolate linger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13: tredje av i alt 19 i serien, og denne nikket mange anerkjennende til. Mild til å værre hele 115 IBU. Frisk og god med grapefrukt som hovedinntrykk.

Bottle, december 28th 2012. Amber hazy body, nice tidy medium white head crowning it. Aroma is all about the hop, grassy, with citrus, peach and pine. Refreshing. Taste follows the same pattern, combined with a caramel taste and a slightly sweet offtaste. Bitterness good as expected from the warrior, finish is fruity, again peach,some pine, and lots of caramel.
