3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great aroma... Centennial all the way. Murky orange colour, with a nice off white head. Palate is a little thin for me, but the flavour of the hops is great. Really tasty. Having said that, I found the alcohol noticeable (or was it unfavourable esters?)... Really impressive, but for me, personally (I know, I know, tautology!!!)... it just needs a little more body. But bloody awesome beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: hazy medium amber with one fat finger of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: resiny pine, caramel, grapefruit pith, candied fruits. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, high bitter. (7/10) Medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, off-dry warming and lingering bitter finish. (3/5)
Yes, another dusty shelf turd, but “only” seven months past its BB date, so that hardly counts, right? This higher ABV and high bitterness certainly seems to have protected it to some extent, and it’s still hop forward - hell, even a hop bomb. It’s possible the malts and fruit flavours have turned a little darker, perhaps, but hard to tell. Still lots of fun, but not for the faint of heart. (14/20)

Doing a marathon of dusty old 2012 mikkeller single hops. First one. Heavy, dark sediment. Pine, sweet, alcohol. Plenty bitterness. Watery texture. Some bitter aftertaste. Stays in the nose.

From a bottle. This really shows off the hop flavour profile, heaps of dank pine resin going on. Liked it a lot.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Színe és habja, mint a többi Single Hop-é. Illata gyümölcsös, enyhén gyantás. Íze markánsan keserű, de jól belesimul a gyümölcsös aromákba. Igen frissítő hatású, mégis testes. Utóíze gyümölcsös és visszafogottan kesernyés.

Bottle at csakajosor. Dark amber colour with a small white head. Nose piney with some notes of nuts. Taste is medium to high bitterness with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Much less resiny than the nose would suggest.
