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.

reebtogi (4141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 16, 2012
330ml bottle pours a golden orangeish color with a big white head that retains well and leaves a lovely thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral and citrus hops with toasted malts. Taste is a bold citrus and earthy hop bitterness with a solid malty sweet backbone. Medium body and good carbonation. A really well done IPA that is definitely recommended for a tasting.

Pours a lovely shade of amber. Aroma is light and floral with some malty sweetness creeping in. Flavor is well balanced but shows off the wonder of the nugget!

jmohno (1059) - Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Poured a amber brownish red with pretty good carbonation,good head retention actually keeping a finger width of creamy off white and good lacing-solid layers keeping on the glass. Aroma is very good malt and some spice/peppery with hops herbal maybe slightly floral although i think ive seen these collect dust over the last year,but it is still fantastic. Very good malt taste,smooth creamy great medium sweetness,good resinoy wet hoppish bittering.Very good tasting beer.

blankboy (6007) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2011
Bottle [11.2oz]. Pours a hazy orange-copper with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet, piney and floral along with caramel malt and fruit -- maybe some alcohol as well. Flavour of spicy, piney hops with floral notes along with caramel malt, some alcohol and fruit. Nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, not my favourite hop but it’s well made and enjoyable.

hayduke (3341) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Pours amber with a robust off-white head and decent lacing Nose is a potent floral hop aroma. Body is medium with a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is also floral on top of malts. The finish is citrus fruit, and dry. A very nice beer with a nice bitterness in both flavor and finish

danielrog (1) - Quinto Vicentino (VI), ITALY - SEP 3, 2011 does not count
Draft beer at "The Drunken Duck Pub" in Quinto Vicentino, Vicenza, Italy. Nice white fluffy persistant head. The beer is initially characterized by an a floreal aroma with hints of light citrus and apricots. It has a strong and decisive bitter taste due to the quantity of hop used compensated by a rather sweet and soft finish.

Reynolds314 (2278) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Im going to have to try this one with one of the better standalone hops like centennial. The base beer is very good for an ipa. A nice ABV is achieved without too much malt to overwhelm the hops. The one problem with this beer is the nugget hop is more of a supporting hop not a star.

Ernesto987 (3648) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Light floral and citrus aromas. Actually well balanced malts to hop. Actually a very nice bitterness on the finish. Nugget is a pretty awesome hop, I was hoping someone other than Sam Adams did the single hop beers. Too bad they are $7 a bottle.
