COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Denne gang har Mikkeller brygget en single hop med Nugget-humle. Der er tale om en virkelig kraftigt humlet IPA. Mange vil sikkert tænke på Nugget-humlen, som en udpræget bitterhumle det ofte optræder i de store amerikanske IPA’er, men med denne single hop IPA, giver Mikkeller dig mulighed for at smage Nugget-humlen helt solo.

This pours hazy amber, with medium off-white foam head. This beer was brewed in 2011, so is not bitter nor hop-aromatic anymore. Because of Dranken Geers: huge beer shop but not serious for the shelflives! More than 3-4 months for a single hop IPA is a non-sense. All the identity and typicity of the beer is in its hop variety. Hop flavours and bitterness decrease really quickly. It smells old ale with some remaining hop notes. But nothing really distinctive. Too bad, I’ll tatse it another time. Cheers

The aroma are very caramel and raisin oriented. This also comes a lot through in the flavour with some melon and peach maybe. A got hop for this beer in my opinion, but maybe it’s a bit off-balanced.

Pours a reddish amber. Huge frothy head. Aroma is sour. Taste is mildly malty with a sharp bitterness. The sour doesn't come through interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OK IPA. Fortfarande är magnum favoriten i single hop serien. Ganska måttligt humlad.

Japalo (1047) - DENMARK - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle. Three finger foam. Amber haze. Faint aromas of moss green leaves on forrest soil. Bitter Caramalty taste. Medium body and carbonaton. A bit boring aroma hop.

On tap at Novare Res, Portland ME in April 2010. Hazy amber. Not the most assertive or aromatic hop on this evidence. Relatively earthy. Pleasant drinking but nothing leaps out. Not my favourite of the Mikkeller single hop IPA series.

The aroma is sort of weak with a grassy herbal hop and a grainy malt and an earthy quality. The appearance is amber with a medium head and floaties. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall I am not really on board here but not bad.

Has a really sweet caramel scent, light burn after the sweet taste, rather old. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A-- Poured a light amber color with hints of orange through the beer and pour. A light khaki colored head, aggressive pour left me with a huge 1 finger head, once settled. A sorts of lacing with the head. Thick and sticky, reminds me of a root beer float lacing. Medium to large bubbles in the head and decent head retention when swirled. S-- Big bold spicy hop smell. Fresh grass but earthy sort of smell. Decent carmel background. Fresh citrus is also mixed in with this. T-- A lot of pine, mixed with earthiness. A rather big carmel blast right of the first sip with just a bit of citrus to back this up. M-- Very medicinal feel in the very end. A little oily, and orange peel becomes more evident. For me grass also becomes more apparent in the mouth than in the taste. Very crisp and piney start but oily and orange in the finish. Medium carbonation to this but heavy, chewy and spicy. Flavor does stay with you a long time.

Bottle. Rich orange pour with a white head. Grass and floral hops with biscuity malt to balance. Solid.
