A Note on This Beer
Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo, Sorachi Ace, Bravo, Columbus, Cluster, Warrior, Cascade, Centennial, Palisade, Challenger, Galena, Magnum, Mt. Hood, Tettnanger, Nugget, Super Galena, and Willamette Hops each leave their mark in Mikkeller’s 19 IPA.
This is a master’s thesis in hoppy flavor. Mikkeller weaves the flavors of each of these 19 different hops together to create a headily complex work that’s also masterfully integrated and dangerously drinkable.
Juicy mango and floral geranium elements fill up the foreground with flashes of grassy hoppy expanse momentarily seizing your attention. Seams of piney sap ooze out of the Belgian crafted malt framework, stamping your palate with resin. Four deeply fruit hops fill the horizon with fruit- Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo and Sorachi Ace. Lemons beget grapefruits who beget peaches so deep you’ll get buried in fuzz.
Only Mikkeller with his globetrotting hoppy credentials could pull off a beer with this many kinds of hops. Come challenge your palate with a beer that might have the most varieties you’ve ever seen!
