(330ml bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard, Hammel) Pours light brown/orange with an off white head with some lacing. Picked up fruity grapefruit/lemon/apple tastes, is nice and refreshing. Good stuff.

Bottle. Hazy copper body, small white head. Aroma of peach, vanilla, pineapple. Very special hop. Sweet malty taste with grapefruit, pine and peels. Bitter finish with pineapple.

mansquito (4116) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($5): Pours a brownish colour with a dark head for an IPA. Aroma is pine, toffee, and caramel malt. Beer, like the others, is very palatable, and I found this one to be especially easy to drink, and, as such, probably drank it way too fast. Hop bitterness is nice and mild. There ain’t much citrus. This is a good beer considering it’s brew by the numbers with permutations.

mcberko (9345) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours an opaque orangey amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, spicy hops and caramel malts. Flavour of oranges, spicy hops, and biscuity, caramel malt to back - well-balanced. Really nice and pungent, flavourful IPA. Excellent.

Dnomder (30) - Perth, WA, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2012
earthy brown appearance more or less lets you know what you’re in for with this one. if you’ve had a few from this series you probably dont need me to tell you that they can be a pretty rough beer, not bad, just very funky, earthy IPA’s. though i’ve never had more than one in a sitting, in my mind they all taste more or less the same, with the fantastic exception of the nelson sauvin

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2012
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.

Meilby (9625) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle 330ml @ Hotel room, Omena Hotel, Copenhagen
Pours clear brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus peel and mint. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long bready, bitter and dry finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 18, 2012
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.
