3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle shared amongst friends. The last one from the Single Hop series we opened that night. My palate has been somewhat stunned from the massive amounts of hops at this point but I drank what I poured and enjoyed it very much. Good hop malt balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Ørsted, Copenhagen
Parallel with Single Hop Summit
Hazy amber color with generous compact head. The aroma is meaty, roasted ham (not smoke), with a light herbal and minty touch, also iced apples (Ice Cider) and light sweat. It has the classic Mikkeller caramel and dry toffee flavor; the bitterness is strong, with resins that are a bit piney; the final is quite balanced long.
But overall this beer is rough.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Darkish golden pour with a decent off white head. Grassy hop and tropical fruit present in the nose alongside some vague spiciness.Relatively restrained hoppage in the flavour alongside further fruit and a slight earthiness. Quality stuff but not quite total lift off....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml @ Patricks. Slightly hazy reddish orange with a big, creamy off-white head. Aroma has more grass and hay than fruit, a hint of caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, a bit crass bitterness, grass and a rather dry biscuit type malt flavor. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. Descent, but far from the best single hop. Not in balance.
