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.

My final of I think 12 of the series, taken old. Im surprised by the relatively low rating of this. It has aged well. Sweet fruit and citrus smell, spruce and grass. Spicy, medium bitter and light sweet. Nice cloudy brown gold with floating sediment. Slightly sour. Much less of the old flavours and aftertastes of the others.

Drank side by side with the 19 other variants of the serie. I would like to note up front that - since these beers are no longer in production, they were not fresh. this rating should thus be viewed with that in mind, and can shed a light on the ageing differences between the variants. They were probably better fresh... Pours rather clear, dark amber, small white foam. Smell is dusty, light hoparoma underneath. Taste is sharp, bitter, madeira took this one over pretty much, leaving none of the hop taste.

jamaty (2098) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 2, 2015
Ambar, tirando a marn, con un par de dedos de espuma blanquecina. Aroma malteado, tostado, y lpulo presente, herbal. En boca, es predominantemente dulce, acaramelada, pero con amargor lupulado herbal. Cuerpo moderado, gas escaso.

Pours a nice, frothy light caramel-colored head, color is a hazy amber; aroma is strong and of caramel; medium sweetness, medium bitterness; medium body. Overall, I quite enjoyed this IPA style beer, especially as it was a bit heavier on the malts than other IPAs I have had.

mansquito (6081) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bar great harry, Brooklyn tap: pours reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma is herbal, earthy, and sugary. This is not bitter. This tastes old. But it from keg... Maybe it left over from many year ago. I not know. Me not enjoy. This is drinkable but not exciting.

Draft. This is a nice surprise in the single hop series, bright and herbal, cutting bitterness, clean profile.

I have had many an IPA. For single hop type varieties, unless youre doing a horizontal, its difficult for me to taste differences among different types of hops. As an IPA, tho, this is good. A wee bit on the resiny side.

CanCrusher (1057) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle 0,33L. Have this one half year ago... Its cloudy, medium amber colour with a lot of floating particles and creamy, light brown head. Aroma of nutts, butter, vanilla, peach, honey. It looks like weird combination, but believe me, it rocks! Taste is light bitter with mix of orange and peach. Finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. This beers taste is dangerously close to barley wine. Mikkeller rules!

SinH4 (4438) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
As goes for all the Hop Series beers Ive tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Mt Hood was a bit boring, not much hop aroma left. A bit earthy bitterness, maybe roses. Similar in the taste.
