Kevin and I sampled this beer after collecting all ten (simcoe, cascade, warrior, nelson, nugget, amarillo, tomahawk, chinook and centennial). We sampled them, one after the other, to compare the hop varietals. These notes are primarily focused on the hop flavors of each beer and should be used in comparison to one another. This review is one in a series of 10... and then there is "10".
Top of bottle: 08-01-11
Date of tasting: 10-16-10
Kevin: Calcium finish, balance by slightly more bitter, more smell (than simcoe), butterscotch, smokey, dry and bitter
Brandon: Oranges past their prime. pine needles.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 20/5/13
A murky brownish amber with lots of streams of bubbles feeding a two finger tan foam that's dense and retains very well leaving a few pencil thin rings followed by loads of random lace
S lots of caramel, a little orange peel with some herbal tea and bread, smells like an aged IPA even though this just landed, I suppose it could've taken a while to get here, I think I could pick De Proef yeast out of a line up at this point
T more of the same really, some pine and more rind but still loads of caramel and grains, almost as if the malt has more going on then the hops
M medium-full and creams up from the bubbles, a little left behind on the gums and rind lingers on the finish
O not my favorite from this series and from such a popular hop I was expecting more, the look was the highlight
I'm not sure I like the malt and yeast profile they use for all these single hops, I'm also uncertain of the age of this "new release" with the printing on the cap being smudged and it tasting a little old. Still decent but I've had far better from Mikkellers single hops lineup
