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.
I love beer. I know what I like and I like this one a lot. You'll notice that I don't throw around a lot of fancy terms when describing beer and wine. All I'll say is that this one had a unique flavor and aroma, almost tangy. It didn't taste like an IPA, but that didn't mean it wasn't good.
I give it a 4.0
