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.

Sorella maggiore della TipoPils in quanto + luppolata, più erbaceo e amaro finale secco...ottima anche se la tipopils rimane la preferita...

Molto meglio della tipopils. Avessimo questa alla spina sarebbe una festa, purtroppo per berla bisogna andare solo da loro...

Draught@BQ, Milan. Golden looks with a generous white head. Fragrant grassy hop and sweet malts in the nose with a hint of citrus. Crisp and clean flavour that followed suit and wasn’t as hoppy as the name implied. Dried out in the finish. Not my favourite style, but this is a way above average example.

In degustazione al locale del Polli a Milano, aveva sicuramente dei problemi perchè di luppolo manco l’ombra, la riproverò, 6 sulla fiducia

Keg (Bir&Fud, Rome)
Hazy honey colour, small head. Massive hoppy aroma. Really grainy husky taste. Crisp palate. A touch buttery, but not off. A lovely pils, the hops big and bold, but very well balanced.

Grande birra luppolata sia al naso che in bocca con un finale persistente e secco
