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.

Tangerine aroma with a grassy hop flavor. Dry mouthfeel. Very cloudy beer. Certainly not one of my favorite hops

As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Bready, earthy-bitterness. Not so classic IPA-hops aromas in there. But the bitterness gives a nice finish.

"a nice fruity aroma greets the nose. other than that, though it was a pretty average beer. nothing bad but nothing that stood out in the flavor. ibus in the 30s are too low for an ipa."

Bottled, and probably quite old. Hazy amber color. Decent head, mediocre retetion. Not getting a lot from this beer. Some small earthy tones, slight metallic after taste. Will question any recipe that calls for Willamette.

Keg at the Southern. Pours dark orange, nose is light citrus, taste is sweet citrus, toffee.

JohnRMurdoch (3403) - 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 (1544) - 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 (340) - Morges, 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 (1091) - 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 (516) - 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?
