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.

Im a huge fan of this experiment with different single hops creating the whole hopping-scale of a beer. The chance to compare, to judge and to identify your own favorite - and hence be a better beer shopper in the future is great. I had this one first on draught but this rating is based on the bottled version. The pour is deep amber golden with an slightly orange head. The nose is nice and mild with a fresh hoppyness - there are som hay and som apricot ans citrusnotes. The taste is surprisingly bitter and fresh at the same time - its some of both. The bitterness stays with you and is picking your tounge all the way to the finishline. The palate is a little creamy or buttery. This one is easy drinkable with a lovely freshness. Like it

Marsiblursi (2989) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2009
Pours light hazy amber with medium off-white head. The aroma is medium hoppy with tones of citrus, herbs and flowers up front but there is also some wood and earth. Malt brings caramel and cookies. The flavour is light sweet and medium to heavily bitter with tones of herbs, flowers, some citrus, wood, earth, dry caramel and crackers. The mouthfeel is clean and medium carbonated. Wood and herbal finish. Light to medium bodied.

Draught. [Beer festival 2009] Huge thick beige head that really lasted. Good display of lacework. Golden light cloudy color. Aroma of citrus, peach, orange, flower, fruity, light caramel and mild toasted malt. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with some counter sweetness. Lingering citrus light oily fruity finish.

KnutAlbert (5999) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2009
Bottle from Ølbutikken. Candyfloss head over a hazy brown beer. Dust, flowers, a maouthwatering dryness. Very nice, very refreshing, but not very complex. A good showcase for the Nugget.

OleR (4752) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 20, 2009
From tap@Ølbaren, Copenhagen. A thin greyish head covering a crystal clear, deep amber colored body. Resinous, citrus-fruity and spicy hop aroma. Lots of evergreen in the flavor; pine neddles and resin, also citrus zest and notes of flowers and earth. Subdued malt body. Mid-bodied. Long bitter finish. A very hoppy beer, appears a bit one-dimensional, still a nice treat.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2009
A rather good IPA but not one to turn over my world as I know it. Bitter, of course, and very smooth, but not as special as some of the other beers by this brewery.
