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.

Pretty solid. No such thing as a bad IPA from Mikkeller. Good citrusy/fruity bitter hops with a little caramel sweetness from the malt. Not pushing the boundary. But very drinkable.

Another one of the hop series from mikeller Galena hops are a little fruity and really bitter. Leaves a bitter finish and really thirsty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg @ Brewdog, Shoreditch. Lovely biscuit aroma with a refreshing tropical fruit taste and a touch of caramel bitterness. Personally one of my favourites of the single hop series.

Lovely orange-gold colour - bitterness and a toffee flavour are the overwhelming characteristics. Pretty tasty but not amazing.

Abijen (2572) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2013
Pours an orange beer with a good white frothy head. Smells citrus and I guess grapefruit. Tastes fruity. Grapefruit and citrus. Good bitter finish. Good average carbo, thin body and a dry texture.

olio (10601) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
33 cl bottle

Pours hazy amber color with a huge head. Aroma is kind of biscuity and malty, not a good sign, some mild resinous hops and grass follow. Flavor is also malty and a bit resinous, some caramel and tangy fruits on the finish. A bit stuffy and too malty for my taste.

bhiner41 (194) - Darien, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Reddish brown hue, no head. Sweet smell at first, with a bit of dank cereal. More of a sweet taste than fruit or hops. Dry funky aftertaste. Very good like all beers in this series. ---bhiner41 Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
