Mikkeller Cascade Single Hop IPA

Name – Mikkeller Cascade Single Hop IPA
Country – Denmark
Type – American IPA

Appearance – Poured a hazy copper color with a big white head that left a lot of lacing on the glass.

Smell – Citrus hops hit you right in the face.  Grapefruit, orange, pineapple.

Taste – Pretty much all citrus hops like the smell.  Not much in the way of a malt backing for those looking for one.

While I wouldn’t say it’s a hop bomb it is pretty much all hops but I’m not complaining.  I really enjoyed this new one.  We just recently got Mikkeller down here and figured I’d start with an IPA.  I know some complain about the over use of cascade hops but I love them.  I love the big grapefruit hop flavor they give.  So rightfully I got a kick out of this one.  Not as big as some other ones with the same type of hops but definitely enjoyable for someone that loves hops like I do.

Overall Grade – A

    Haven’t had the cascade, had the nugget version ( there is also the simcoe version. I like Mikkeller’s style. This is the first I’ve seen of a horizontal series on on style with one ingredient change.

    I’ll have to be on the look out for those. We don’t have a full line of their stuff yet. Slowly they are bringing them in. I had Weyerbacher’s Simcoe IPA and enjoyed it so if I can grab Mikkeller’s one I will.

    I really like these guys. Perhaps a little expensive…but, good.

    Yeah they do seem expensive. I really want to get my hands on that Simcoe one at some point.
