Single hop beers are always an interesting educational experience in picking out the various characteristics of the hops variety in blended hops beers. Nice malt backbone. A touch of honey sweetness subsumed within the moderately citric hops current running throughout the beer. Finish was just a touch astringent.

A - Pours a dark orange, with a two finger thick head with medium retention. There's a LOT of yeast chunks floating around. Intentional or not, this isn't precisely appealing.

S - Earthy, woody scent, with a hint of malty sweetness and definitely some yeast.

T - Taste matches the nose. Earthy, woody, malty (much more than I expected), with a hint of vanilla.

M - Smooth, even considering the yeast chunks.

O - Aside from the appearance, an enjoyable IPA, though the balance is off in places.

33 cl can purchased at Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop in Denmark. I haven't been a huge fan of the Mikkeller single hop series because they are so malty. It just didn't work for the Mosaic and Citra versions. The heavy malt bill really hides that great Citra hop profile.

A 330ml can with a best before date of 8th November 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A hazy dark amber colour with a two finger off white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.

Aroma: A bit light but there’s citrus and tropical grapefruit, melon and peach with hints of caramel and pine.

Taste: Bitter grapefruit, citrus orange, pine, grass and caramel maltiness. The booziness was also actually quite obvious here.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: This was ok, but the malts overpowered the hops and it was surprisingly boozy.

All right beer with citrus and tropical notes. The malt base is nice but a bit odd. The bitterness is herbal and almost pilsner like. Balance and drinkable but nothing over the top here. A bit boozy
