COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was a hop explosion, an experience heightening my senses. Imagining all I desired from my beer but never dared to ask for. Some people thought it wasn’t for everyone. Ultimately, most of those who tried it ended up falling in love with her.

Hop is this beer’s undoubted star.
Being our reoccurring dream, our addiction, our cure, cause and resolution of many heartaches, we always come back to this beer, we want to fill ourselves with it. We want it to touch our hearts and souls while diving deep in its inebriant scents. We want to merge with it. It has aromas of mango, tropical fruit, grapefruit and bitter orange with balsamic notes and subtle malty nuances. Light amber almost orange with a very persistent white head, rich in refined West Coast hop resins, it is liquid poetry, wisdom and satisfaction lasting till the last drop. Just like love awakens the heart making the longing for the beloved source of torment, so our hop craving will find redemption every time we will near our lips to this beer.

In Belgrade at a private tasting event. Amber and hazy, white tick foam. Nose of fresh hops, tropical fruit (mango), lime. Mouth of tropical and too much bitterness for otherwise a very good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska @ Domus Birrae, Rom. Bärnstensfärgad med frostigt vitt skum. Doftar inbjudande av apelsin, grape, karamell, smultron och blomster. När näsan har fått sitt visar det sig att munnen får en lika trevlig stund, med smaker av apelsin, tallbarr, grapefrukt, ananas och karamell. Medelstor beska, medelstor sötma och fyllig kropp som ger en riktigt, riktigt bra IPA.
