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.

Hazy copper color, big lasting off-white head. Fruity sweet scent. Sweet sugary taste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Not so fun as a single hop beer,but the hops itself feels like a nice basic hop to be mixed well with other sorts.
