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.

Pours a beautiful , tich caramel color. Nice medium head that leaves a little lacing on the way down. Aromas are not very strong. Aroma lend themsleves more to malt, caramel and toffee. Light aromas of citrus and pine. Upon tasting, there is an immediate maltiness followed by a piney bitterness. Taste of honey, earthiness, light citrus and floral notes. The beer finishes very dry with a piney bitterness that stays on the tongue for sometime. This is a very smooth IPA. Seems like this Nugget Hop is more for bittering than aroma. Great Brew!! Cheers!!!

This is one solid IPA. All the key elements are there. The color is brown with a goldish tint. The head is thick and bubbly. The retention is pretty long lasting, as is the carbonation. The aroma is hoppy with plenty of citrus notes to it. I feel like I’m being biased towards Mikkeller, but I just love all their beers.

StefanSD (2071) - Lakeside, California, USA - OCT 11, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy amber-orange color with a medium white head that has fair retention and some sticky lacing.The nose is moderate in strength with salt, sweat, spices and sweet limes. The flavor is biter hops forward with oranges, pine and spicy sweet malts. The palate is full and smooth with lively prickly carbonation. The finish is long with lingering biter citrus hops. Overall: Very tasty

jesperhammer (2815) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2010
03-DEC-2010, bottle @Ulkløbben @Henrik. All 10 single hops in the series tasted in flights of two or three. All bottles from "Ølbutikken". Beautifull orange llike with huge beige head. Earthy, long aftertaste with a little sweetness (!). Quit complex compared with the most bitter hop types. It has this vinous quality that I really like.

Pours a bright and hazy amber orange with a very big, super sticky, and clingy head. This beer has some pretty amazing head retention. Has a very interesting citrus, orange-grapefruit thing going on in the nose. Moderate bitterness, light for the style, the beer almost comes across as sweet with the first taste. Taste follows the nose, with a caramel sweetness chased by bitter orange rinds. There’s an underlying character of spruce and freshly mown grass that isn’t unpleasant for the style. The malt bill stands up in this beer, though it moves away from the strong notes as in others and moves more towards the spiced (think rye bread) realm. This beer reminds me of similar IPAs which use Cascade or Amarillo for hopping. I’ve had several of these now (unfortunately not all in the same evening) but this stands out a bit more.

dnstone (2127) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Golden in color with amber tinge, minor layor of white head. Floral aroma with citrus notes... "warm" underlying yeast, colve-spice tones. The taste is floral as well, full-mouthed witih great balance...it’s hard to nail down the flavors but it’s mellow with the flavors blending very well together. Probably my favorite of the single-hops so far.

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.
