Lowenbrau (1889) - 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 (1942) - 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 (4405) - 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.

thebeertourist (4774) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle at Olympen. Pours deep golden with a huge head. Citrussy aroma, hints of grass. Some initial caramel countered by citrussy and even earthy hoppiness. Interesting.

gunnfryd (10271) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle at Patricks. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is peaches, pine, malt. Flavour is dry, dust, hop, malt, pine, peches. Nice beer.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Fruity tropical hops with light sweet malts and medium bitterness. Better than most of the other Mikkeller Single Hops.

ComradeK (992) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber, with a fairly large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Fruity and quite sweet hops aromas dominate the nose, with lychee, melon and rosewater most prominent, sitting over a base of caramel malt. Tropical fruit hops up front give way to smooth caramel malt, which lends a bit of body to the beer. More fruity hops come through in the finish, with sweet lychee and perhaps a touch of bubblegum. Apollo is not a hop I have had unaccompanied before - it does certainly create some very interesting flavours. Whilst perhaps not as potent as some of Mikkeller’s other single hop IPAs, this is still an interesting and very pleasant beer.

mkel07 (3141) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2012
330ml bottle. Like the rest of the beers in the Mikkeller single hop series this one is a cracker with a big fluffy head of sand coloured foam that refuses to fade. Base colour of the beer is sunset orange with a light haze. The aroma packs a passion fruit punch and is pleasing to the nose. Full mouthfeel and a resinousy lingering aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2012
Blind tasting at the Penguin. Clear bronze with a high, sculpted white foam. Humming, florid, tropical fruit (lychee, mango) aroma with peach and blackcurrant back notes. Less expressive on the flavour front with a lean grapefruit bitterness leading to an abrupt, un-aromatic finish. Some peach, chlorophyll and warming alcohol. Tasty enough, but missing that certain something (another hop?)...
