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.

The warrior pours a dark rusty orange with a thick beige head that lasts a good while. The aroma is caramel and floral. The flavor is floral and caramel with a bits at the end. Overall this is a decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rumproasts (5306) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
bottle. Deep hazy amber with small head. As usual, theres the standard malty base for the Mikkeller single hop series. Its maltier than I prefer, but in this context, it works very well. I find myself indifferent with Warrior hops. I prefer something with distinct citrus or pine (or both). Theres a pleasant hoppy bite, but the flavor is just a bit lacking.

angel77 (2846) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma tomada en mayo de 2013. Tonos muy suaves, hierbas, resinosos y pinos que se van diluyendo a medida que va calentando. Cuerpo medio. Bastante buena, para repetir sin duda.

Famously named after the Euros Childs tune, from the excellent Bore Da album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfGnVmM1Bg4&# the Warrior hop is much underrated for its aromatic properties, generally being used as a cheap bittering hop by the la(r)ger breweries. You know what though? Its pretty good, in an orangey kinda way. WARRIOR!!!! WARRIOR!!!! (got it at Ninas, Edinburgh)

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Pours cloudy copper color with a large off white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, malt with a bit of grass. Tasting malt, oranges, grass with a medium-strong, slowly spreading and long lasting bitterness. More bitter than the other IPAs from Mikkellers Single Hop Series, but quite good though.

jamestulloch (3768) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle from Ninas Mini Market. Murky amber body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma of onion, caramel and blood orange. Flavour of orange, biscuit and wood. Biting bitterness. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Lively fizz. I think this hops flavour characteristics arent strong enough to carry a single-hopped beer. Nice bitterness though.
