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.

VsXsV (4584) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
Sample from 33 cl bottle at SBWF 2011. Almost clear amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, noble hops, grass, caramel and honey. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet, light dry and floral. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. A bit meh. Tettnanger shouldn’t be used in this way, it hasn’t got the levels of aroma compounds needed for a good IPA. Both the aroma and the taste is a bit weird.

gunnar (9978) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2012
Bottle from Ølkonsortiet, Ålborg. Pours cloudy golden with a small off-white head.Aroma of ripe fruits, malts and grass. Taste is moderate sweet malty, ripe fruits and some artificial bitterness at the final.

nuplastikk (6633) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 18, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Murky deep red-brown, with lots of chunky floaties. Steady, frothy beige head. This one really doesn’t work, the peppery basic bitterness of the Tetts can’t hold up against the age or yeasty thickness. This is pretty bad, and I feel burnt for even purchasing it. Woody, oily, with a grassy, vegetal overtone. This is why they don’t make unfiltered Tettnanger IPA.

habadin (15) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Okay beer, pours out hazy. Notes of hay and cereal, dry on the back slightly. I can taste the alcohol here, with bits of banana. Not bad, but not their best.

berntholer (1619) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2013
big light beige head that stays long with foam head. clear dark amber colour. sweet, hop resin and sweet corn like aroma. very faint hop resin taste, sweet and fruity. doesn’t convince me as an IPA. bottle 33cl / notes from backlog

olio (10750) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2013
33 cl bottle
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Aroma of grape fruits, hops, some grass and goose berry bush. Flavor of caramel malts, grape fruits, goose berries and some wooden notes. Medium carbonation, bitter fruity palate with a harsh malty finish. Some weird off-flavors. Not very pleasant.

gyllenbock (10167) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2011
On tap at Mikkeller Bar, April 2011. Clear amber, small white head. Not that impressive. Mostly malt with bread, some light notes of fruit. Soft bitterness.

tnkw01 (1857) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle. Loved the ideal behind this but way too expensive to try everyone. So I waited on trying these. Almost missed out. Last bottle on the shelve for this retired beer. Dark golden color, slightly hazy. Lots of floaties. Medium head. Taste is typical IPA, except, the aftertaste is not as bitter. Nice aroma, citrus, grapefruit.
