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.

Cloudy amber, wonderful mikkeller mouthfeel. Sweet citrus to raspberry with woody undertones. One of the best of the series. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JohnRMurdoch (3239) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 6, 2014
330ml bottle from Thistle News. Muddy dark amber brown, not much head. Resin grain aroma and flavour. Bitter aftertaste with a hint of caramel. This is not a good hop.

RichardW (1496) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Slightly hazy red beer, with little to no head and a fair amount of sediment. Toffee and yeast aroma, apple flavours on the tongue. Semi sweet and tasty enough, but just lacking something to give it a bit more life. The finish is a bit like a Belgian Triple, strangely enough....

So much bitter becomes beer drinking miserable after a while. Well brewed but that is just it.

weark (292) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle from Erzbierschof - Hazy amber color with small white head - Aroma is citrusy, orange or blood orange, hints of caramel - same for flavor - medium body, medium bitterness, dry - probably too old

angel77 (849) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma tomada en marzo de 2013. Suave y agradable, con tonos ligeramente especiados, tal vez algo picantes y florales. De nuevo y como siempre cerveza muy buena y para repetir sin duda.

Kosmokrator (470) - ITALY - MAR 1, 2014
Alla spina. Nebuloso color arancio chiaro con stabile cappello di soffice schiuma biancastra. Aroma dolciastro ricco di sentori di frutta fresca; gusto in bilico tra dolce e amaro con note fruttate, panose, delicatamente caramellate e luppolate. Corpo lieve, leggermente oleosa, un po’ acquosa, finale amarognolo piacevole ma non eccessivamente persistente. Nel complesso buona, ma anche un po’ scipita... colpa della spillatura?

monoroc (21) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2014
Pours brown color with a bit of trub and an off white minimal head. Aroma is pine, floral with a subtle maltinesss. Quite a floral, spicy, earthy taste with a rather mild bitterness. Nice refreshing, texture. Don’t like the floral thingy, otherwise ok.

Madsen1635 (234) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber pour with some particles and a huge frothy offwhite head. Aroma with lots of malt and some notes of yeast. Taste is sweet and has some dry bitterness. Various fruity notes as well. Ends metallic

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find It’s Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame… Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binny’s not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed… All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates… I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices… Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series… All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish… Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh…
