3.46/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a cloudy, darker orange color with a foamy, two finger head. Head sticks around for the better part of the time it took to finish this one and left a good lacing down the glass as well.

The first thing that I notice in the aroma is that the hops are secondary (or maybe even farther down the line) to the malt sweetness that I'm getting. There are some citrus notes there but they seem to be very faint.

Taste is more of the same. A good, balanced IPA has a lot of hop character that is balanced out by the malt underneath. This comes on backwards. I get a sweet, caramel malt flavor, maybe even some toasted flavor, followed by slight grapefruit and citrus notes and then ending with a decent, semi-dry bitterness.

Medium body with the carbonation to match. Smooth on the tongue before drying out a bit at the end.

This one goes down smooth and rather easily. Towards the end the bitter, drier finish has me thinking that one is enough. Being one in a series of ten single hop beers I would think that having a few of these in a row is not the point anyway.

A: Poured out a dark copper with some gold highlights when held up to the light. The head built so thick and frothy that it essentially looks like whipped cream on top of the beer, literally holding its shape outside the top of the glass. Pretty amazing, only have experienced this with Orval before. Leaving some tight, sticky lacing on its way down.

S: Smells of caramel malts and fruity and citrusy Nugget hops. Interesting to know that this one hop is what I am smelling for sure. I get notes of grapefruit with apples and pears and just a bit of lemon tartness. Definitely on the fruitier side with a nice sweet malt body under.

T: Some strong grapefruit and bitter notes followed by a pretty substantial malt body. Has some grassy, earthy flavors in there as well. Good amount of bitterness throughout. What's interesting is that the brewers didn't overdo it and try to make up for a lack of other hops. The hop flavor is just pronounced enough to pick up on its characteristics.

M: Feels a little bit flat to me, which is surprising with how huge the head built up in the beginning. Definitely on the low side of carbonation. Has a fairly light body as well, drinks pretty slick.

D: Easy drinker, glad to have tried it and would love to try some of the other hop varieties in the series. A good idea by Mikkeller, more of a one and done type beers for me.

Ah, once again I tread the Mikkeller single hop path. Let's see where Nugget gets us.

Pours a cloudy and rather deeply coloured amber hue, with a glistening and foamy head of yellowish-white. Lacing is complicated, but patchy, and the bubbling is rather large bubbled. Let's face it - it's about par for the course in the series...

Nose is initially subtly fruity, but the longer it sits, the more earthy and gritty the aromas become. Hints of tea leaf and leaf mold come through, but with a surprisingly sharp note like zesty grapefruit coming through as well. Milder in the aroma, and certainly darker, than many of the more aromatic varieties in the series, but it has a rather pleasant nuance to it nonetheless.

Taste is definitely quite different, giving a very earthy, but very pronounced and really quite astringent bitterness. It has the bite and strength of a big American bittering hop like Chinook, or Columbus, but rather redolent with the earthy and tannic characters of an English variety like East Kent Goldings. Makes it and interesting mix. The strength is such, however, that it overpowers the rest of the beer. I feel that however much this showcases the hop (particularly in regard to the other beers in the series), it needs more sweetness and malt to back it up.

Feel suffers a little as well from the exuberance of the hops, with the bitterness almost giving a cutting quality to the palate.

It's still a nice beer, and an interesting way to experience the Nugget variety, but it's not one of my favourites in the series. Then again, the difference is made clear in the hop variety in this beer, and that's what it was aiming for. That has to be worth something.

A: Hazy orange/amber color; some solids floating. Poured a 2 finger tan head with excellent retention to a dollop. Decanted lightly. Webs of thick lacing.

S: Orange rind and citrus with some other light spices. Sweet, bready caramel malt comes through as well. Very nicely balanced nose.

T: Malt more up front. Resiny citrus and musty spice dominate the middle. Sharp bitter with resiny hops lingering a bit. Nicely balanced.

M: Medium to full body. Ample carbonation. Smooth, resiny and dry.

D: Very well-balanced without giving-in on hop or malt character.

Pours a bright and hazy amber orange with a very big, super sticky, and clingy head. This beer has some pretty amazing head retention. Has a very interesting citrus, orange-grapefruit thing going on in the nose. Moderate bitterness, light for the style, the beer almost comes across as sweet with the first taste. Taste follows the nose, with a caramel sweetness chased by bitter orange rinds. There's an underlying character of spruce and freshly mown grass that isn't unpleasant for the style. The malt bill stands up in this beer, though it moves away from the strong notes as in others and moves more towards the spiced (think rye bread) realm. This beer reminds me of similar IPAs which use Cascade or Amarillo for hopping. I've had several of these now (unfortunately not all in the same evening) but this stands out a bit more.

this is probably the fourth or fifth single hop ive had, but first ive decided to review (ill go back and review previous beers). first note being the big frothy mess that takes over my glass as soon as i pour it. it takes forever for the head to diasipate and leaves legs all over the place. i enjoy this single hop because its on the milder side, with some nice pineapple and orange notes poking through. its not overly bitter and the dryness is also managable. i generally enjoy all ends of the spectrum when it comes to hop varietals and this is no exception. i would recommend it to those looking to see what hops can be used in the balancing act of making an ipa. this beer is such a nice mouthful because the carbonation fills out the sweet flavor of the hops. yum.

Orange marmalade with honey highlights and several streams of uprushing bubbles. Their destination is roughly three fingers of buff colored foam that is sticky enough to lay down a good bit of sea foam lace.

The nose features the toasted and caramel malt underpinnings of the base beer, as well as the herbal-spiciness of Nugget hops. This isn't my favorite variety of little green cone, but it'll do just fine if there are enough of them present.

It's extremely doubtful that MNSH IPA is a one-off that was only brewed in 2009. Ain't no way the 'best by' date on the cap would be mid-December 2011 if that was the case. Not that the beer would last that long even if it was brewed this very month. Having said all that, this particular bottle tastes neither fresh nor old.

The toasted bready and caramel malt component seems more prominent this time around. That might be because Nugget hops aren't as distinctive as some others... or it might be age-related. In any case, bitterness is still going fairly strong. Still gotta go with earthy, herbal, spicy and tea leaf bitter. This is a hop that is better in combination with others than all by its lonesome.

The mouthfeel, while pretty decent with respect to size, is slightly undercarbonated and feels flattish as a result. There are plenty of fine tongue sizzly bubbles, but they don't provide much lift or creaminess.

Nugget Single Hop IPA is not among my favorites in the series. In fact, it might be last in line. That said, it's still a tasty Danish-brewed American-style IPA that (like most Mikkeller beer) is too expensive to drink on a regular basis.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light tawny brown hue with boatloads of haze in the body. Head is two fingers of frothy tan foam. Not a bad looking brew.

Smell: citrusy, resiny, piney hops atop a pretty serious malt backbone. Not bad, but I'm still on the fence about how well Nugget is suited to the aroma application.

Taste: super citrusy, resiny, piney hops with plenty of bitterness are the raison d'être for this beer, and it shows. The malt is there, but this is an extremely unbalanced beer -- no doubt the intent. It's not bad, but I'm really not in love with it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with plenty of carbonation. Not exactly creamy, but there's enough fizz here to go along with the bite. Definitely above-par in the texture arena.

Drinkability: this is a pretty good and relatively refreshing beer, but it grates on the palate with its one-note hops and lack of balance. I won't seek this out again, but nor do I regret the experience.

Reviewed from notes...

I was interested in trying all 10 of the Mikkeller Single Hop beers, so after I got my hands on a bottle of each, I tried one variation a night for 10 consecutive nights back in August. I really enjoyed examining the subtle differences that the different hops give the beers.

This one pours the same amber brown color as the other beers in the series. The smell is a sweet caramel scent with a hint of some citrus and earthy tones. The sweet malty flavor dominates the palate up front, but it finishes with a bit of citrus and grassy flavors. A lingering bitterness remains after the beer goes down. Like the others, it has a smooth mouth feel with light carbonation. Even though a slight bitterness stays after the beer is gone, the Nugget Single Hop IPA would be a good IPA for someone who is not a fan of the stronger, more bitter IPAs.

Received in a BIF box from callmemickey. Cap has a date of 16/12/11, whatever that means.

A: Pours don't get much more perfect than this. A fluffy, gummy head of yellowish tan at least two fingers thick sits atop the liquid. It collapses at the slowest of paces, leaving tons of bubbled swiss cheese walls of lace on the sides of the glass as it does. Under this puffy crown, a light orange and caramel brown brew waits, nearly opaque and cloudy in some spots and merely hazy in others.

S: Sugary sweet and floral, like orange blossoms and honeysuckle. A subtle toasty biscuit character. Orange juice. Slightly earthy, slightly citrusy, with faint hints of onion in the background. More subtle and less bright than the others in the series have been.

T: again, lots of honey and a light flavor of toasty biscuits. The hops are interesting. More bitter than flavorful, the acrid nuggets grip the sides of the tongue through the finish. Herbal, like a strange mixture of chives, honey and tangerine peel.

F: medium high, fizzy carbonation amidst a pretty thin body. It's almost like soda as it moves about the mouth. The finish is rather dry.

D: It could be the hops or it could be the beer itself, but this isn't the best of the series.

Pours a reddish bronze colour, the colour of scorched earth, with stunning and generous off-white head that froths up crazy and exuberantly, giving nice bouncy reverse cascades as it puffs out. Sinks slowly, creating a few crater layers around the top and little specks of lace. Haze in the body obscures the slow, light carbonation. That's a damn good-looking IPA.

So what do nugget hops smell like? Largely fruity here, with smacks of tropical pineapple and a touch of coconut flesh. Some floral notes with lavender and jasmine as well. Slight metallic aroma lingering at the back, and all underlined by a sweet buttery caramel malt that sits back and lets the hops take centre stage. Very appealing.

Tastes quite fruity and floral to begin with, with hints of pineapple and paw-paw on there. Gets more floral midway with more of that jasmine character. Quite a malty note emerges mid-palate which has a slight toffee character and distracts slightly from the main event. The hops re-emerge late for the finale, and are really rather robust, with green tea bitterness blending with some herbal zing, a touch of metallic flavour as well as a slight soapiness. Slight citric twang where the flavour hops and bittering hops meet late-mid; otherwise a quite earthy hop bitterness, too robust to be orgasmically pleasurable but enjoyable enough to maybe induce a figurative erection.

Mostly smooth and velvety texture with a nice body, but a touch of carbonation sizzle which is unfortunately rough. Otherwise pretty OK.

I think a lot of the whole single hop series comes down to what is your favourite hop? I have to say I'm quite enjoying these little nuggets, but moreover I also think Mikkeller has constructed a very nicely balanced IPA, and if I got given this independently of the whole 'let's compare hops' idea, I would very much enjoy drinking it.

Bottle: Poured a hazy light orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and bitter hoppy notes are dominant and enjoyable. Taste is also a good mix between some hoppy notes with some citrus notes and some bitterness with a dry caramel malt backbone. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Well brewed and interesting though it gets kind of hard to distinguish some of those West-Coast hops.

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: 16-12-11
Date of tasting: 10-16-10

Hop notes:
Kevin: Biscuitness, in late mid pallate. swee smell with calcium finish, poissible vanilla
Brandon: candy sweet citrus. good bitterness.

Aroma is fairly hoppy with a citrus overtone, mainly grapefruit and sour orange. It pours a slightly hazy mahogany, darker than most IPAs I have sampled, with a very thick and fluffy pale orangy-tan head that leaves some nice lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy, if not overwhelmingly so, a little bitter with hints of citrus and even a whisper of caramel. Texture is smooth and just a little edgy and fizzy. Definitely worth at least a try.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into a mug.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy apricot color with some visible carbonation. Nice bit semi-rocky white head has decent retention and leaves some lacing.

Smell: Pretty light/mellow aroma with a bit of grapefruit and some florals. There's a sweeter, honey-like undertone that I can't quite place.

Taste: Flavorful in a unique way - has some apricot, citrus (lemon and grapefruit), and floral flavors. Not very spicy and just a hint of bitterness in the finish. Some residual sugar and bitterness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light- to medium-bodied, though slightly viscous. Light carbonation and smooth.

Drinkability: Pretty drinkable, alcohol isn't too high.

Interesting concept of having these single-hop IPAs. I must confess that I'm not well versed in the different styles of hops; perhaps with a few of these in the fridge I can work on that. Something with this one, though, isn't too impressive. Reminds me a bit of Kern's Apricot Necar - albeit alcoholic and slightly carbonated. Not my favorite IPA, but interesting to try.

Cap date 09/04/11. Served from bottle into a Stone nonic. Poured a hazy red-orange with a two finger off-white head. Maintained excellent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of malt and a sweet/bitter hop note. The flavor followed the nose with only a little lighter in intensity. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a very nice and smooth IPA from this series. The smooth flavors of this one made it very drinkable. The flavors were very subtle and not 'in your face' overpowering like some IPAs I have had in the past. Definitely the lightest one in this series that I have gotten to try. Quite enjoyable to say the least and goes great with food due to its lighter hop character.

Hazy dark apricot color, with a large creamy off-white, sticky head, that leaves lacing around the glass.

Bright fruity floral aroma with notes of pineapple, orange pith, fresh flowers, ripe pear and pale malt underneath.

Floral and bright flavors on the palate. More pineapple, orange and tangerine, some banana and bready malt in back. This beer is minimally bitter, more fruity, with an expected grapefruit finish.

Creamy mouthfeel, with prickly carbonation.

A very tasty IPA, great drinkability.

Pours a fairly standard medium amber with a parchment head that has great staying power. It slowly melts into liquid and leaves sticky lace on the sides of the pint glass.

The aroma is delicate with a nice perfume of floral hops in the forefront. There is a faint background of buscuity malt as well, but it is defiantly a hop forward nose.

I am inclined to say that the flavor is very malt forward, but I think it is more because the nugget hop character is so delicate. The biscuity and slightly toffee malt are accompanied by a faint hint of flowery and perfume like hops that have a very unique character to them. Herbaceous and akin to eating fragrant herbs, it is a hop flavor that is uncommon in most beers.

The mouthfeel is medium and the finish is a bit too dry for my liking. It leaves a bit of a cheesy over dry hop aftertaste on my tongue.

Not the most drinkable IPA ever, but much like the other single hop beers, this is a tool that helps illustrate the role hops play in brewing. Very intriguing, but nothing I would seek out in the future, unless it was for a special tasting.

Poured a slightly cloudy light amber with a thick and sticky head.

The nose had a deep slightly sweet medicinal hop quality, very different from the standard Citrusy American IPA's.

The flavor was very funky with the slightly sweet medicinal flavor coming through nicely with a light bit of grain peaking through the Nugget hops.

The mouthfeel has a medium texture with a light creaminess and a long oily coating.

I like this, and the entire single hop idea from Mikkeller, was doing some similar projects at home and enjoy these type of beers. On the flip side its to bad the cost of these is so high, $5 retail per bottle is a bit on the excessive side, while I look forward to buying each one once to compare the hops, as much as I'm enjoying the Nugget, I can't imagine buying more.

Purchased at the BSF bar, GBBF 2010, coming in a slim, long-neck 330ml brown bottle; BB 16/12/2011, served mildly chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: given a patient pour, the beige head still builds up in time and makes a 8cm thick frothy head on top of a lightly murky dark amber body, supported by very lively carbonation.
S: piney & citric in aroma, on top of enticingly semi-sweet malts (caramalts and biscuity malts mainly), pear-ish yeastiness and an overall "perfumy" fruit-estery mixture; a deep sniff reveals sweet tangerine fruit candies and more delicate hoppiness that is supposedly Nugget hop's feature? Very pleasant and fresh.
T: a mildly effervescent and quite clean foretaste of juicy, semi-caramely & semi-biscuity malts comes hand in hand with pleasantly sour-sweet citric-tannic flavour, woodiness, and aromatically-tannic longan-fruit shells... An aromatic (exotic?) Chinese roast-tea-ish aftertaste gradually takes over, with hop bitterness expanding like a soft blanket, caressing the taste-buds and rear-end of the tongue ever so smoothly yet deeply. The mid-level tannic-bitter & chewy mouthfeel remains until the finish, not without a mildly powdery-yeasty touch here and there.
M&D: the carbonation is at most mildly effervescent and soft, going well with the medium body; this beer is rather balanced and pleasantly approachable, delicious and sufficiently hoppy & bitter to be rated as a quaffable IPA for me. I've never had any beer brewed with Nugget hops only, so to me this ale is rather educational in a sense!

Pours a hazy, amber color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight floral hops, earthy malt, slight sweet malt, slight yeast. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus hops, and a hint of roasted malt. Overall, good appearance, aroma, and mouth feel.

Smell: strong berry hop aroma with a slight astringency.

Taste: slight berry like the nose. Strong evergreen resin flavor-more complex than just pine. Strong bitterness. Minimal malt flavor, but I'm in this for the hop experience.

11.2oz single from Wilbur's in Ft. Collins, CO. Around $7 into Sam Adams Perfect Pint, Silver Anniversary Edition.

A: Copper orange in color with a dense cream colored head, great retention, nice lacing, also a fair amount of bubbles moving through this beer.

S: Pretty piney up front, pretty decent hops, but kind of verges on solvent-esque smells. A few malty smells, but really nothing too spectacular, not quite as aromatic as the others in the series. Maybe a

T: Pretty decent flavor, nice bitterness, some pine and a deep lingering grapefruit way way in the back. Somewhat grassy in there as well, not overwhelmingly so, also just a hint of mint in there too. Interesting. Tastes a fair bit better than the smell.

M: Excellent, just like the others in this series, medium body, perfect carbonation, just a hint of alcohol heat, and a nice dryness. Not too shabby.

D: Too expensive to session, and a touch on the strong side, can't say that I love it, or that I'd rush out to make a homebrew version of it, but it is enjoyable. Another great educational beer!

After wiping the frost off of my glass, it poured a cloudy golden hue, with two fingers of white, decent retention, and good lacing, which may have been better, given the glass condition. The nose was decidedly full of pine, apple, pear, toffee, and malt. The taste was a nice piney hop/malty blend midpalate, followed by a crisp bitter dry finish. Spritzier feel than it looks, with a medium body. Very pleasant-tasting ipa, possibly sessionable.
