4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
nice very hazy pour, nearly opaque, great head with excellent retention and memory. the aroma is soapy, but not astringent. these are some funky hops, but very clean. they are very bitter up front, but fade in the back for a very smooth drinker. the aftertaste is quite mild as well considering the strong bitterness on the front palate. good stuff, i def like this strain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with Craig, consumed at mine 09-04-10 picked up at Dranken Geers, March 2010 Pours gold with a white bubbly head. The aroma is citrus and at first I thought that it was edging towards orange territory but nope its definately more grapefruit. Very bitter in the mouth, streaks of citrus lash out at every corner of the mouth, very dry at end, but most a very bitter beer. A7 A3 F8 P4 Ov15 3.7

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly cloudy golden color, white head. Citric hop aroma with pine. Very, very bitter dry flavor with grapefruit and a lingering finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. It’s well-crafted, but not really my thing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is light amber-orange, perfectly clear. Aroma is mild, minty, medicinal, faintly floral. Good rounded, soft mouthfeel. Flavor is beautifully reminiscent of strawberry-flavored bubble gum (or big league chew), leafy. Little bit of lemon drop in there as well, though this may be a stretch. Quite an intriguing drinker, I’m glad I had the chance to have this on tap.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark amber - copper color with thick off-white head. Aroma is very earthy and musty hops. Flavor is the same, pretty earthy and bitter, and maybe a small hint of citrus. Pretty complex hop flavor for a single hop beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a slightly cloudy copper color with a dense white, to off-white head and tons of lacing. The aroma was pine hops, pencil shavings, spice and citrus. The flavor was dry pine hops with some light pencil shavings, and a hint of citrus. Bone dry mouthfeel with a succinct finish. Lacked the personality some of the other Mikkeller Single Hops I’ve tried have had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Trappist. Pours reddish amber with a decent white head and a citrus aroma. Not surprisingly, the caramel malt flavor is trumped by the intense grapefruit hoppy bitterness. This is perhaps the most bitter brew of the Single Hop series, yet it is still a pleasure to consume.
