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.

Bottle. Unclear deep orange with a thick good lacing foamy off white head. Aroma is citrus, dry grass, melon, peach, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Long bitter hoppy finish.

Reduced to half off, I should know better than to spend my coin on old beer by now. Copper dead yeast soup with a slowly fading large tan topper. Aroma of caramel, amber, biscuit, grassy hops and some peach. Taste is bready and floral with caramel, wort and stalky notes. Aggressively bitter, I dont like this hop all on its own very much.

Aromas intensos a maltas ligeramente dulces y predominando las resinas. sabores muy maltosos con toques de frutas pasas, uvas, higos... con amargo pastoso y resinoso final pronunciado. Bastante buena con cuerpo medio y con sabores intensos. ,,,,Botella de 33 cl en casa. mayo de 2013 probada junto con la serie galena. Aroma a ligero tostado. Cuerpo ligero medio fcil de beber, color un poco mas tostado y oscuro que la serie galena, turbio y con espuma blanca. Sabor algo mas dulce y con amargo seco final mas oleoso y menos resinoso que la galena. Muy buena y para repetir claro.

Pours a translucent dark copper from the bottle with dissipating off-white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is malty sweetness, caramel and pils, slight grassiness on the back end. Taste is less malty, better balance, but the hops have definitely fallen off. Lasting bitterness, bit of burn on the way down. Definitely not fresh, but interesting concept.

CacheManyHose (670) - HONG KONG - DEC 6, 2013
Smells yeasty, resinous with some toffee sweetness. Tastes floral and honey sweet but ends very dry and very, very bitter. Palate has just enough slickness to match the dryness. Definitely not bad but of the single hop IPAs I've tried (eight in all), I'd say it's middle of the pack.

HKdIPA (762) - HONG KONG - DEC 6, 2013
Great copper color with relatively thick head and lacing. Very floral aroma, somehow smells like sawdust - though not in a bad way. Taste starts out incredibly sweet, honey, flowers, finishes bitter and quite dry. Nice thick palate. Very interesting beer but too bitter to drink a lot of.

I was looking forward to Trying Mikkeler, since it gets so many praises of being good and innovative brewer. I was excited to find Its Hop Series at a reasonable price. Unfortunately my anticipation and excitement was not matched by high standards that everyone praises Mikkeller to live by. Everyone in supply chain is to blame Mikkeller does not have production dates, Distributor Trying to sell the product no matter what, Binnys not having balls to stand up to its supplier and let them know that it is out of date and no good. I was pissed All of them were old and stale, therefore complete waste of time and money. Every time I come across bad batch I swear to stop buying anything that has no dates I just might do that, since there are plenty of other choices Going Back to Mikkeller Hop Series All of them Poured A Shade Lighter Or A Shade Darker of Muddy Brown. All of them Had Smaller or Larger Floaters. Huge Head, Decent Lacing. Earthy, Stale Hops Aroma. Tasted pretty much the same: Earthy, Malt, Stale Hops. Moderate Bitter Finish Pass It Unless You Know It Is Fresh

Tide (3638) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Dark amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, peach, pine, caramel and hops. Bitter finish with citrus, pine and a bit of peach. Very nice IPA, surprisingly smooth considering the high IBU.
