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.

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.

Bottle from mane liquor. Dark brown pour with a thick off white head. Pine and caramel upfront in the aroma. Citrus and grapefruit in there too. Taste is piney hops and more caramel. Easy on the palate. Another good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hazy darkish amber beer, good off white head. Softish dry palate. Creamy malt. Like Nugget this hops seems to impart more bitterness than fruit. There is a trace of orange and tangerine. Finishes semi dry.
