Mikkeller: Nugget Single Hop IPA

Today I tried a beer from a newer brewery: Mikkeller.  This brewery has only been around since 2006 … a couple of homebrewers in Denmark that decided to open their own brewery.  Homebrewing is a common starting point for many of today’s craft brewers…thank goodness!  I believe homebrewing really gives these craft brewers the right perspective in starting out and then developing as a brewer.

This brewery has been experimenting with single hops in a beer.  This version is the Nugget hop.  Since I grow the nugget hop and will be using it in my next brew, I thought I’d give this one a try.   It is a very nice IPA. The Nugget Hops work throughout … nice bittering/flavor and a good aroma.

Even without having brewed with my nugget hops, I’m excited to make my next IPA.  I will have to keep my eyes open for some more of these Mikkeller brews.

Enjoy,

Beer Mentor
