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.

If you read the label. All of the hop series are brewed in the exact same way. This really showcases each variety for what it is. This variety Super Galena, I believe is a true hop lovers hop. Flavors are toasty bitterness, caramel, honey, graham, alcohol. Sweet aroma. Really delicious.

Bottle from Blackhearts & Sparrows. Great hoppy beer. Aromas of caramel, grass, and other herbs. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Aroma is citrus and juicy. The flavor is hoppy up front but nicely balanced in the malts with a slightly dry finish. A very good IPA, among the best of the Hop Series.

ladnewton (2035) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Keg at Craft Beer Co, London on 14th October 2012. Hazy copper with rich white lacing head. Intensely citric and tangy with some grassiness. Grapefruit and zesty tang in mouth. Zingy mouthfeel. Bursting with flavour. A must.

Nice head with long duration. Amber color. Aroma and taste is very straight forward simple bitter hops, caramel, malt and notes of some fruit maybee pineapple. Nice bitter long.

subcombicio (203) - Marghera, ITALY - JUL 5, 2012
una edizione speciale hop series con il super galena, a mio avviso uno dei più particolari e rari luppoli. questa birra infatti, oltre a farsi bere molto facilmente, è anche molto luppolata e al naso anche fruttata.

Schiuma gialla bella morbida e consistente, gusto vellutato, densa, con odori delicatissimi agli agrumi. amaro giusto
