you've just got to hand it to mikkeller for going above and beyond on so many of their beers. not only in terms of creativity, but also execution, and this one is just exceptional. its a blend of all or most of the single hop series in different proportions, and the end result is magic. hazy light amber pour with two inches of lasting foam. the nose is super complex, all the oily bitterness of the different singles, but with a certain fruity vibe from all of them in combination. the flavor also has a lot happening, I can pick out the centennial for sure, and some citrusy notes from some of the others. the yeast that's been such a contributor to this series is also here again, dutifully performing its usual task. really bitter aftertaste, more so than any of the others that I can remember. crazy carbonation, really powerful, and the same fuller medium body that has typified this series. being a big mikkeller fan, and a lover of the single hop series, this beer has been a holy grail for me, one of my most wanted to try beers out there, and thanks to a close friend traveling through the Midwest, I was able to acquire one. not sure how fresh it was, not sure what he paid for it, but I have no complaints. this is special stuff. sort of a fitting exclamation mark on the whole single hop series, of which I still need to source a few more...

On tap at Sessions in Greensboro.Poured into an imperial nonic a deep hazed burnt orange with a well defined one finger white crown,I loved the intense orange color of the beer.A mix of deep pine resin,grass,and grapferuit rind in the nose,the aromas didnt jump at ya but they were appetizing.Awesome hop complexity on the palate,resiny and citric with mild onion-like flavors as well,a sweet biscuit malt base actually holds up well to the big hops.A real nice complex ipa,most of the different hop flavors came thru from each hop making it very unique,I loved it.

Thanks to my brother for sharing this beer.

The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is peaches and oranges, with a hint of pine and some biscuit malt. The flavor is very similar, with some bitter orange notes standing out. There is also some biscuit malt, and a touch of pine, but the bitterness level is still about medium. The mouthfeel and medium and the carbonation is about medium as well.

33cl can. Hazy dark orange with a tall beige head with good retention. Citrus and tropical fruit hops, as well as some pine in the background. Bitter and refreshing, without much malt sweetness.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of March 2014. Picked up last weekend from Beeritz in Leeds. Love the somewhat kaleidoscopic label. 19 hop varities - sounds like a fantasy IPA!

Poured into a Duvel tulip. A rich marmalade colour with decent carbonation and plenty of hazy sediment. Produces a gigantic head of creamy off-white foam with excellent stability; this eventually subsides to a surface layer. A juicy aroma of fruity aromatic hops - notes of white grapes, melon, grapefruit, tropical fruits, citrus, the list goes on.... This is underpinned by subtle caramel malt and earthy yeast. Tons of hops!

Tastes of fruity aromatic hops with a restrained bitter finish. Notes of white grapes, grapefruit, melon, tropical fruit and citrus, along with biscuity malt and earthy yeast. Quite juicy and dry. A subdued bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied, but a bit flat. Mildly spicy and rather astringent - dries the palate. Aftertaste of fruity hops; yum!

Tasty - a dazzling array of aromatic hop flavours to be savoured. However, it's not the best IPA I've ever had; too many competing aromatic notes. It's good but something tells me that 'less is more' applies to beer as well. Still, the creative effort should be acknowledged - I doubt that I'll be drinking another beer brewed with 19 hop varieties any time soon. A solid effort that is only let down by a lack of carbonation. Grab one if you come across it.

Bottle. Burn orange/cooper, little hazy with medium to big, white, densed head. Poor lasting. Average lacing. Mostly tropical fruits aroma (amarillo, citra) and some citrus (orange, mandarin) also floral and resin notes, also noticable hints of honey. Taste is light to medium bitter with mostly tropical fruits and floral flavours, next you cen feel some resin and woody notes. Along with hops there is pretty balanced malty profile with mainly caramel accents. Medium body, smooth/oily texture, medium carbonation, finish is light bitter. In general very solid and balanced IPA, quite drinkable.

Bottle from yesterday's trip to Premiere. With all the hops listed, one would imagine a double IPA. It is a single and that's consistent with the understated IBU. Peachy coloured body with carb bubbles. Fresh smell. Some pickle flavour, more orange citrus flavour as it warms. Good drinkability.
