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.

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

Keg at Brewdog Brum. Wow! Expected not too much. Was feeling a bit wary of single hop IPAs. Shouldn’t have worried: this is tart, bitter and packed with taste. Not sure I’ve encountered this hop very much, but on this evidence it’s great.

Burnt orange pour. White head. Aroma is hoppy, light caramel, dank wood aromas. Quite bitter on the tongue. Citrus hops, good stuff!

Strong aroma of citrus and yeast. The flavor has a strong citrus hop bite to it along with a decent underlying maltiness and a dry, bitter edge in the finish. Pretty good overall.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly cloudy dark orange/amber with a little over a finger of white head. Aroma of pineapple and citrus hops. Taste is medium bitter. Mostly citrus pineapple with a hint of pine. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I’m digging the warrior hops.

Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Clear coppery golden with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Nice sweetish aroma, very resiny, pear, lots of lovely peach and mild melon. Medium carbonation, fine very dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is classic IPA (actually the one that is most ’regular’ IPA-ish). Resiny, piney, light pepper, good peach. Very dry and bitter finish. The caramel peeps through. Very lovely.

Aroma més tirant a dolç que llupolitzat, interessant. Perň molt millor en boca. Té textura i cremositat, carbónic molt agradable i un final amarg molt refinat i llarg. Se’n va al sac de les bones dins de les hop series de Mikkeller.

330mL bottle generously sent across the pond by stobbe74. The bottle pours copper with gold edges and a bit hazy when the yeasty sediment is involved. The hop laden liquid supports a near white sort of head. The aroma is almost nothing at all where it seems there are pilsner malt notes and a mild spicy hop sense. The taste is big bold yummy spicy hops from front to back and get even bolder to midway. This hoppy attack of the palate makes up for the timid aromatics. It picks up thin ribbons of floral hops into the finish. This is delicious bitter hoppiness.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Dark amber coloured with red fruit and peppery hop flavours, citrus notes and a creamy orange marmalade finish.
