I had this at ChurchKey where they had 10+ Mikkeller single hop IPAs. It was interesting to taste the characteristics of this hop without interference from other hop types. Having done so, I learned the reason why it is not a common single-hop IPA.

A: Orange color and 3 mm head that fades to good lacing. 4

S: It had a grainy, grass-like smell. Not especially strong or pleasant. 3

T: The taste was crisp and woody but quite mild. 3.5

M: Pretty thick and reasonably carbonated. 4

O: This may make a great base hop, but it was a little boring in isolation. 3.5
