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

Sampled as part of a hop education class. Very mild hop flavor, with mild bitterness. The beer itself has a nice malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer is beautiful amber-colored with a fine creamy head. It smells fabulous fruity, with spicy and herbal hops in the background. Starts moderately bitter, fruity with lots of hops. The middle part is very herbal and fruity, this slightly more bitter. Goes into a very herbaceous and fruity hoppy finish! Amazing! Perfect IPA!

Willamette hops... piney and herbal on the nose, this greenness expresses itself in the taste and palate with a little toast, crisp, dry and clean finish. BTW, this beer is quite good also.

Dark gold. Peach aroma. Sweet fruit, over-ripe oragnes. Dryness in the finish, but the sugar also lingers. Full flavour, but this is a hop to use in moderation.

Amber color with a white head. The aroma is spicy with pine and some slight flowery notes. The flavor has a nice pine touch to it with a gentle fine bitterness and a dry spicy finish.
Interesting hop!

Bottle at home from Cask. Pours clear amber with bubbly beige gold head. Aroma is fruity and a bit earthy. Bit of orange fruity sweetness, like a tripel. Slightly floral and herbal too. Taste is fruity orange, alcohol warming, bit belgian yeasty, some citrus bitterness at end. Quite cereal malty. Not sure I could really pick this hop out in a beer as it doesn’t seem very distinctive, but a pretty nice beer all the same.
