Mikkeller Single Hop IPAs

I picked up a mixed sixer of Mikkeller single hop IPAs at John’s Grocery in Iowa City.  I thought it would be interesting to compare the different flavors.  I tried them over a two night session in a pint glass.  The beers were similar in appearance with golden/amber color and healthy two finger heads.  There was usually good lacing on the glass.  The listed ABV on the label was usually 6.9%.  I found out that most of the beers were good (IPAs are my favorite beer style)!  I liked the Cascade, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin and East Kent Golding varieties the best.  I liked the Warrior and Nugget varieties slightly less.

These beers are imported from Denmark and are around $5 each, so I would only recommend them for something different.  Plenty of good American IPAs are available locally.  I would recommend Sierra Nevada Torpedo, Boulder Beer Mojo, New Belgium Ranger or Boulevard Brewing Single Wide IPAs.
