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.

On tap at Rattle N Hum during their Mikkeller single hop series event. All of them pour pretty much the same, ruby tinged amber with medium to thick beige heads, depending on the pour. The malt profile on them is all fairly consistent as well, tending to be a bit too sweet for my tastes, often masking some of the more delicate hops. Aromas of smooth sweet citrus, light lemon. Crisp and lemony, malt and citrus. Grapefruit, slow malty grapefruit finish.

Pours a copper amber color with a generous white foam head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and earthiness. Sweet citrus flavor. HOPS: The Willamette smoother feel with a slight funk. Very subtle gentle bitters. Hollow up front. Bitters comes through on the finish.

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Fruity sweet hoppy aroma with citric and light floral notes. The flavor has fruity sweet hops, citrus, a hint of peach, and light floral notes. Good stuff.

phaleslu (9322) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place shared among a group of five locals. Pours a clear orange-copper color with a small off-white head that leaves a bit of lace- all 19 looked like this. Aroma was dominated by soap, earth, and cereal. The flavor had some light hops, grains, grass, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Fairly dull compared to others in the series.

On tap at the Mikkeller Pub
Copper hazy, thick white head. Smells of flowers and berries. Body is quite malty, some sweetness. Finish is hoppy and bitter but i miss more hop tones. I guess Willamette is too weak alone
