Tried it at a tasting with other Mikkeller IPA’s at my favorite local beer store. This is the one I like the most. Lucky me, they had a keg in the back to fill growlers with. Guess what I got? You got it! A growler of Cascade. The pours a very pretty hazy copper with a very thick and foamy head that’s very reminiscent of the crema you get from a good cappuccino. The lacing is so good, I’ll need a scrubber to get it off the glass. The aroma is not very overwhelming, but who cares, the mouthfeel is so rich and creamy with a very nice dry finish. It makes up for the lack of strong aromatics. This is very reminiscent of 90min IPA, but yet is much more subtle and delectable than the Dogfish Head offering. It’s gonna be very hard to not put that whole growler away in one night!

My third dusty old 2012 Mikkeller single hop. Surprisingly fresh. Pine smell. Very carbonated. Some sediment. Tangy and bitter, some herbal, some grapefruit. Even at this age it is a summer day’s beer. Lovely red-gold colour. Mid oily. Not very dank for its age. Not at all what I was expecting.

Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, some floral notes, grapefruit citrus, just a hint of spicy hops, doesn’t seem as old as most.

ABS (883) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Best before 26/02/17. Hazy copper body. Medium sized, frothy, slightly orange head. Resin, honey and malt nose. Lemon, citrus, malt, pineapple, apple flavour. Good malt backbone in this single hop series! Bitter with some sweetness. Medium, slick body. Medium carbonation as well. Good!

Fules (725) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 15, 2016
Színe és habja mint a többi single hop-é. Illata intenzíven citrusos. Íze tipikus Cascade, de egy nagyon harmonikus alap van mögötte. Szokás szerint testes.

UjoKlobasa (536) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle. Amber color, cloudy liquid, white head. Aroma of grapefruit; I cannot feel anything else. Heavy bitter, but not very pleasant. Long bitter finish. Something for tough men I guess.

Gurthnar (4835) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle at DvaDve. Solid caramel background. Clear orange-amber colour. Very easy drinking though assertively bitter. Hoppy aroma and flavour is surprisingly un-cascadey. General fruitiness with resiny and zesty notes. Very good and easy drinking though.
