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.

Very hoppy aroma :) citrus smell, big foam, offwhite. Nice amber colour. The taste was a little downer when the aroma and apperance was so positive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber, beautiful persistent cream head. Nose of hops and golden syrup. Bittersweet taste. Full mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Long finish. One of the better single hops.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (2863) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
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.

angel77 (900) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma tomada en mayo de 2013. Tonos muy suaves, hierbas, resinosos y pinos que se van diluyendo a medida que va calentando. Cuerpo medio. Bastante buena, para repetir sin duda.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 2, 2014
From notes. Poured hazy orange, with a small off-white head. Cheese, foot, hops, yeast, honey, caramel, hints of tropical fruits in the aroma. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Bitter, hoppy finish.

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)
