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.
Smooth soft bitterness. Hop more floral, softly toned. Blood orange, kumquat essences with some earthy pine and tea notes. Buttery mouthfeel. Noble hop varietal makes for a smooth refreshing not quite pale ipa.

Tap at Brewdog, Leeds. This has the exact same aroma as the first beer I ever drank, about 30 years ago. That was Wards Bitter, brewed up until 1999 in Sheffield. It tasted not unlike it too! Sold.. to the gentleman with the big nose..
Outstanding cloudy orange clour with an off white head. Citric hoppy and fruity aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a nice bitterness. Rich fine grape hoppy and fruity flavour. [Bottle at Nøgne Ø Brewery, Norway]
33cl bottle @ home; from Geers Oostakker; side-by-side tasting with 4 others; pours hazy orange with big white head; low carbo; smell is exotic fruits, flowers; taste is bitter, malty, some wood, some dryness. Best one I had so far!
