planky84 (2572) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2009
Bottle from Beer Merchants. Pours a hazy brown/orange colour with a good long lasting head. Aromas of peaches, oranges, summer fruits. Good malty flavours with lighter citrus notes. The finish isnít as hoppy as Mikkellerís nugget or simcoe IPAís, it has a much more gentler approach. Very nice mouthfeel all round. Top marks!

Bottle. Once again cadeaus to Mikkeller for making this interesting experiment. I had this together with the warrior single hop, and this one is so much better. Red brown with little head. Nice grape aroma, sweet. Taste grape, hopps a lot of bitterness. A very nice though untypical IPA.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2009
BottleÖ Cloudy burnt-orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Resiny, earthy aroma with shades of tropical fruit. Medium-bodied with champagne-like carbonation. Leans slightly on the bitter side of balance and provides a hint of acidity. Bitter, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of growler!

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2009
The color is orange-red and the head is huge, creamy and lasting. The aroma has notes of pine, new tires for the car, and some earthy notes, hard to describe. The flavour has a light sweetness and the same earthy touch and notes of herbs, pine, new tires and a bite of pepper and a light bitterness. Not really my kind of hops...

theisti (3588) - Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2009
11.2 fl oz bottle purchased at Zipps in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pour is fully hazed orange golden copper with a big, four inch, very lasting off white head. Head falls quite slowly with thick lacing. Aroma of floral and earthy resin, some husky toasted malt behind that. Very natural and engaging nose. Taste is the floral resin from the nose, with an added element of bitter orange and toasted toffee light sweetness. The three flavors of resin floral earth, bitter sweet and toasted malt really play together and meld nicely. The long finish has more earthiness. Palate is medium, medium to low carbonation and a nice dry bitter finish. I really enjoyed this one. Thanks for helping get this to me Tyler.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle: Pours a transparent copper amber with a clumpy-lacing large off-white head. Aroma of sweet orange citrus and pine resin with a touch of caramel malt. Body starts with good fullness and toasty caramel malty sweetness with a good juicy grapefruity flavor hops and a crisp, bittersweet lemongrass finish. A nice, and unique IPA.

MrChopin (3810) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Transparent copper body, large beige head. Nose is very fruity with grape and berry, also some pepper and an odd note, somewhat spicy. Flavor is similarly sweet with heavy berry and grape, but there is also nice balance with pine, caramel, and doughy bread. Great balance here, but the fruit is the special highlight.

ChainGangGuy (4600) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Letís pit the Nelson Sauvin Single Hop versus the Cascade, Nugget, Warrior, and Simcoe versions. Appearance: Pours out cloudy, burnt orange body with a full inch of lasting, off-white foam. Smell: Delicately toasted malts with notes of cookies and grains with a distinct waft of white grapes as well as some lightly earthy, herbal hints. Iíve always appreciated Nelson Sauvin hops for being so different and unique. Itís shame I donít see it used too often. Taste: Lightly toasted base maltiness with a touch of dry caramel and crumbled cookies, though with only a light, restrained amount of sweetness. The Nelson Sauvin hops serve up a faintly tart, fruity white wine flavor with some milder earthy, fresh herb undertones. Moderate bitterness. Finishes dry, crisp, and with some continued bitterness into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: I certainly enjoy the concept of a single hop series to really enjoy all the various vibrant nuances and characteristics of the particular hop varieties utilized. While this was previously done by Bison, I had no love for the base beer used, so I quickly abandoned the idea of following that series. Iím digginí this though!

NosirIwont (2187) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange/amber with a big, fluffy off-white head. Nice lacing. Very sweet fruit aroma Ė rhubarb porridge is what comes to mind. Took a few seconds to appreciate it (felt like cooked vegetables at first), but itís really quite alright. Flavour is sweet as well, with the same rhubarb-like fruits. A bit tart as well, and a mild bitterness mucks about on the left. Mild finish Ė a lot like the initial flavour. Bitter with remote liquorice notes. Lingering grassy notes. Bit of metallic notes as it warms. Very interesting, but a tad cloying in the long run (both aroma and flavour). Still, a quite nice beer. 14-08-09.
