COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

sirsledz (16) - POLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle. Very cloudy like water in a puddle. In aroma a lot of herbs and tropical fruits, especially grapefruit, herbs. Nice lacing on glass, head is white, fine bubbles. In taste also very hoppy, more herbal that citrusy. Beer is heavy, not very drinkable. High bitterness, maybe little note of alcohol.

bottle, pours very hazy, amber with off-white, stable head. Not intense fruity, sweet aroma. Tastes more like imperial ipa, medium sweetness with moderate bitterness and little bit of alcohol. Some hoppy, fruity notes. Short bitter aftertaste, thick feel, soft carbonation, alcohol is bit warming in throat.

Lisowczyk (67) - POLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Butelka Nowa etykieta, firmowy kapsel. Barwa pomarańczowo złota. Piwo mętne. Piana umiarkowanie obfita, drobna, trwały kożuch oblepia szkło. W aromacie silne nuty multiwitaminy, cytrusów, lekki słód. W smaku ponownie multiwitamina, sok z cytrusów, igły choinki. Balans kwaskowatości i słodyczy. Minimalna słodowość, średnie ciało. Goryczka na górnej granicy średnio intensywnej.
