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 (6460) - 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 (13532) - 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.

Enjoyit (3086) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2012
Amber of color with a small white head. An aroma of malt, leather, hops and weak cucumber. A flavor of hops, leather, malt and bread.

JanLaursen (2732) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle, 33cl. Light unclear with a foamy off white head. Aroma is full frontal flowery hops, lime, herbs, with toffee malty notes. Medium body with medium sweetness and a long dry bitter finish with quite some perfumery notes of tropical fruits and flowers.

Lowenbrau (1736) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2012
330ml bottle. Herbal, earthy aromas. Pours hazy orange, with nice white head, very persistant and good lacework. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste is moderate bitter, increasing after a while. Long dry and bitter finish. Refreshing and enjoyable.

wyzzywyz22 (1890) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
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....

Beer4000 (4328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2012
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.
