COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Extra Hop® is produced once or twice a year, usually in the spring.
It is a German Pilsener produced by way of decoction, lighter than Tipopils (4.8 against 5.2% alcohol by volume), with 11 Plato degrees. It is drier, more bitter and fragrant. Since it is matured in barrels, it has all the time and ideal conditions for perfect decantation of the yeast, and is therefore quite limpid. People who are used to Tipopils will think much has been lost with the yeast. Extra Hop® does not have the typical thickness of unfiltered, yeasty beers. Nevertheless, it offers a lot to people willing to take the time to become more familiar with it. Like other Pilseners, it is a simple beer that is evaluated according to just a few characteristics: bitterness, body (a hint of malt), hoppy aroma (quantity, quality and persistence) and, most importantly, the harmony between these three factors.

Holmen1 (4519) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2016
Supert krankupp på Circus 25.1.16 sammen med Ovesen. Vi startet med Tipopils, som vi ble meget imponert over, og Extra Hop er faktisk enda bedre (selv med lavere %)! Like flott utseende som Tipopils, og den ble servert med en humlekongle flytende på toppen av det tette skummet. Nydelig, knasende tørr og superlett å helle innpå. Honning, urter og løvetann. Elegant.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 7, 2014
(Keg) 330 ml at Birra+. Pale canary yellow, slightly hazy, with a big, creamy and persistent white head. Plus a fresh hop cone on top of it! The nose is dominated, in the beginning, by white bread and dough, quickly followed by grassy, herbal and resinous hoppy notes. Slight tropical as well. Tiny sweet taste upfront, but it’s all about the huge, clean and pleasent bitterness. Extremely refreshing and thirst quenching. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. A beer I could drink every day withouth getting bored. So solid!
