look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

My 2nd in the Single Hop series, after just finishing the Palisades

A - Brown, no clarity, sediment, lace, head, everything you want

S - Huge piny, bitter hop aroma.

T - Huge hoppy and bitter. Well balanced with the malts, but not with the hop. Still very good.

M - Full bodied, well carbonated

O - I liked the Palisades hop much better, but still a great beer, apparently with whichever single hop they use

330ml bottle purchased from Camperdown Cellars, Kingston Rd in Stanmore.

Pours a pleasant, light amber hue with flashes of red. Decent clarity, but some disturbed, clumpy sediment. Head forms a solid froth of very pale yellow that settles to some firm foam and streaking lace. Body is solid and holds nice, fine carbonation.

Nose is initially fruity, with a touch of pithy lemon, and some grainy, slightly earthy and herbal characters. The earthy, herbal aromas win out trending towards medicinal or mineral in character. Some woody undergrowth tones come through as well. Malt is actually surprisingly subdued: usually these Mikkeller single-hop brews have a firm and noticeable malt presence. Slight detergent and crushed leaf character comes through as well.

Taste is pleasant enough, very much falling along the same lines as most of the rest of the series, with a slightly more pronounced bitterness that reminds me of the Tomahawk from the first set. Indeed, there's a sharp, green bitterness on the front palate, that stays strong throughout, only bowing a little to the subtle malty nuttiness that seems something of a Mikkeller trademark. Some citric mandarin character is noticeable on the front. Resin build-up is subtle, but means that there's a lingering aftertaste of bitter hop compounds that gets bigger the more you drink.

Feel is smooth, but sharpened by the hops.

Decent, but not one of my favourites from the series. Notably, this hop is bred for bittering, and that it does admirably. The high points were some of the interesting pithy fruit characters on the nose, but otherwise it somewhat overwhelmed the beer.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a bronze/amberish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is a bit hoppy, some pine. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, bitter, but not to much, some pine as well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
