The warrior pours a dark rusty orange with a thick beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is caramel and floral. The flavor is floral and caramel with a bits at the end. Overall this is a decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Deep hazy amber with small head. As usual, there’s the standard malty base for the Mikkeller single hop series. It’s maltier than I prefer, but in this context, it works very well. I find myself indifferent with Warrior hops. I prefer something with distinct citrus or pine (or both). There’s a pleasant hoppy bite, but the flavor is just a bit lacking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Famously named after the Euros Childs tune, from the excellent ’Bore Da’ album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfGnVmM1Bg4 the Warrior hop is much underrated for its aromatic properties, generally being used as a cheap bittering hop by the la(r)ger breweries. You know what though? It’s pretty good, in an orangey kinda way. WARRIOR!!!! WARRIOR!!!! (got it at Nina’s, Edinburgh)

Pours cloudy copper color with a large off white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, malt with a bit of grass. Tasting malt, oranges, grass with a medium-strong, slowly spreading and long lasting bitterness. More bitter than the other IPAs from Mikkellers Single Hop Series, but quite good though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Nina’s Mini Market. Murky amber body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of onion, caramel and blood orange. Flavour of orange, biscuit and wood. Biting bitterness. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Lively fizz. I think this hop’s flavour characteristics aren’t strong enough to carry a single-hopped beer. Nice bitterness though.
