COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a part of a Single Hop IPA series by Mikkeller. We created this series to showcase hop varieties on their own. This gives the consumer the possibility of smelling and tasting the unique characteristics of each variety and hopefully helping to educate people about the wonderful world of hops. For each beer, the single hop variety was used in the same weight for bittering, aroma and flavor and for dry hopping. All 19 varieties of single hop beers in this series were brewed the same week and with malts from the same batches and the same yeast and fermentation temperatures. This is done to better compare the characteristics of the different hop varieties.

3.3
Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours a deep golden with tiny impurities and a huge and frothy white head leaving laces - shame about the tiny impurities in many of these. Dry and very dusty hop aroma, somewhat citrusy. Medium body, smooth fruitiness and then again these very dusty hops. Ends dry but not overly bitter. 040511

3.8
Koelschtrinker (21492) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 11, 2011
Hopfig-trockener aber auch deutlich bitterer Antrunk. Die Bitterkeit wird intensiver, der Hopfen darunter ebenfalls. Dunkel blumig, trocken. Später dominiert der Hopfen dann, ohne dass die Bitterkeit nachgelassen hätte. Intensiv hopfig und bitter, dennoch vollmundig. Der Hopfen braucht einige Eingewöhnung, bevor man das Aroma darunter zu schätzen weiß und einen Teil der Biterkeit ausblenden kann. Fruchtig nach Apfel und Melone, etwas Traube. Gewöhnungsbedürftiges IPA. 12/11/12/13/9/12

Bottle from Kihøskh, Copenhagen
Parallel with Citra, Columbus, Palisade
bb 15.03.13, possibly 3 months old

Hazy light amber color (it seems lighter than other beers from the series), with a small head. The hop aroma comes in timidly; at first there is some caramel, puke, then some mild fruity and resiny notes, citrus fruits. Lean body, dry mouthfeel, with a good toffee flavor; here the qualities of the hop shine more than in the aroma; there are good resins, with some fruity trait and a piney finish; it has almost a British Bitter earthy, spicy, yeasty character. Long final, lean as well.
Good.
