Mikkeller Nugget Single Hop IPA

330ml bottle from BeerMerchants.com I bought it on a whim, it's a plain label, no hype, no bullshit, just beer, in a bottle with one hop used, how refreshing.
Very herbal aromas as you might expect from a single hopped Nugget beer, the taste is amazing, it's clean, it's refreshing. The Nugget hop is usually one used for bittering only but this beer proves it's much more versatile than that.


I now wish I had bought more whilst I had the chance. Oh well, too skint for any of that now, saving for New York in January, I'll just have to hope you logt ain't bought it all in the meantime.
By the way if any of you are feeling generous I reckon this makes a great Christmas present, hint, hint!

Mikkeller's brews are usually excellent, although hard to get your mitts on, like you say! will keep an eye out, thanks for the tip!! Are they still a cuckoo brewery?

Yeah, still a cuckoo brewery, they seem to be picking the right places to brew though!

I tried this one and the Nelson Sauvin one. I wasn't a huge fan of this one but the NS blew me away ... great stuff.

Chunk.
