COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed by Mikkeller, Denmark. Recent batch brewed by Mikkeller at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium.
The third in the series of single hop IPAs from Mikkeller. Brewed with Cascade, a true American classic hop type. This hop is less powerful than the ones used in the previous two single hop IPAs - creating a great balance with the beers other aspects.
Ingredients : Water, malts (pilsner, cara-crystal and munich), hops (cascade) and yeast.

Anker (723) - Hillerĝd, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy amber with a huge, long lasting, off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and dry citrus with sweet undertones, very pleasant. Flavor is quite balanced, mainly grape and pine, with a long bitter finish. Well carbonated, but overall not as good as the Simcoe Single Hop IPA.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2010 Thanks to Ungstrup. Murky, muddy amber with an off-white head. The aroma is caramel, grapefruit and apricot, but the hops are a bit faded. The flavor is grapefruit, floral, caramel, dry and bitter. The mouthfeel is dry, fizzy and crisp.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Thanks Ungstrup. A murky orange-amber body with an ample white head. Aroma is of sweet apple and orange notes plus abundant crystal malt character that outshines the hops at this point. Nice woodsy flavor with some welcome lacerative bitterness. Very nicely balanced by abundant maltiness. A little peaked perhaps, but still an enjoyable, quality beer.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Courtesy of Ungstrup. Bottle, 6 months old. Yeasty, orange-brown appearance in the glass. Evidently evolved a bit in the bottle, such the malt dominates, with a viscous mouthfeel. Apricot, malt, light Cascade presence. Slightly past its prime, though still very enjoyable.

Bottled. Cloudy amber appearance. Aroma is fruity with loads of cascade hops aroma with the classic citrus aroma. Flavour is fruity and very soft. Bitter finish. A nice IPA.
