blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle at Mogwai. Helsingborg, December 2011.
Aromas of melon, grapes and papaya. I get some salty notes as well, what a weird hop! Slightly tart in the taste with flavours of apple, herbs and gum. Interesting! This is why I enjoy single hop beers.

Habanero (2162) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2012 Botled. Pours Slighty hazy and deep amber with a med. Sized off-white head. Rater Odd nose of caramel, herbal and earthy hops with notes of citrus. Sweet flavor again with herbal/earthy and citrushops along with caramel. Med. bodied, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry and pleasant bitter.

visionthing (2395) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle at Tilt, Oslo. Pours amber with a big off-white head. Aroma of fruits, caramel and spices. Fruity with a nice light bitterness. Decent IPA, and nice enough, but probably not one of my favourite hops.

erickok (3173) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 Light brown, almost clear body with big soapy off white head. Obviously super hoppy; mostly floral, some dry leaves, hint of parfume, grapefruit skin and a dryer, dusty tinge. Just enough smooth maltyness to form the body, setting the hops in front of everything else; not much yeast character. This is my first Mikkeller single hop rating and I expect the same for the others.Taste has full on biterness, while remaining smooth in the mouth. Nice fatty bitterness throughout the palate, which gets sharper towards the end and in the after taste gives a real nice dry, full flavour. Really asks for another sip. A very drinkable IPA on itself, but of course I will compare to the other hops in the series later. Delicious. (33cl bottle, expensive)

KyotoLefty (5903) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle, tasted beside Citra and Nugget from the series. Grassy aroma, not much citrus at all. Rich, fruity flavor, Niagara grapes, lychee, low citrus. Very interesting and original, with better flavor than either Citra or Nugget versions.

hivemind (693) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle @ FG with Erica last night. Poured a bright orange. I thought this was pretty good, with an above-average balance not only b/w hops and malts, but also b/w hop bitterness and hop fruitiness/citrus/grapefruit/etc. Nothing outstanding, but was glad I tried it. Need to try more of their Single Hop series since I really don’t know how to identify individual hops strains just by tasting at this point.

BenH (2014) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2012
from a bottle. Amber with white head. Fruity aroma, grapefruit comes through. Taste has less grapefruit but with a big mango note, not as citrusy as other hops, some guava and lychee. Enjoyed this one

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2012
Bottled. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense beige head. ARoma of grape, citrus, some caramel, tropical fruits, flowers and spice. Flavour as well full of tropical fruits, sweetness, citrus and light caramel. Medium to full bodied. Has a dry and grapy bitterness in the end.

Bitter grapefruit notes noticeable in this one in the taste similar coming through in the nose.
