COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like you’ve never seen it before. And crunching through crisp, sparkling drifts releases billows of pineapple, citrus and papaya with every step. The reign of the snow angel is over. Long live the hop angel where parks and playgrounds become adorned with the outlines of celestial beings that fell to Earth from angry looking emerald clouds. Tune in to breakfast TV to find life’s on hold for 24 hours as this ’hop day’ demands you rocket down a hill on the back of a baking tray. Or simply raise a glass of this festive IPA as we wish you a very hoppy Christmas.

Couleur cuivrée, mousse qui disparait. Fort nez houblonné floral, un peu sucré. Gout bien houblonné amer, floral, avec notes douces fruitée un peu exotique. Bon corps bien balancé en bouche. Fort caractère amer mais bien subtil fruité sucré. Longue amertume en bouche. Bien!

Bottle. Really clear golden colour, Decent amount of hops without going over the top, medium mouthfeel makes it sessionable. Nice enough.

Beautiful bouquet with tropical fruit aromas. Pours copper red with a small, lasting head. I found the aroma was more inviting than the taste but it still was a very good drop with a great kick off hop bitterness. Definitely worth a try!

Pours a rosey copper. Aroma is sweet and spicy, caramel and pepper. Flavour has amazing depth but still quaffable. Great beer!!

Clear, dark golden beer with a thin head and a tangy fruit aroma. Citrus, pineapple, bitter malt too in the flavour. It’s clean, crisp and fruity but without being sickly. Lovely.

Väldigt fruktigt i aromen lite smör. Lätt i kroppen men bra balans i smaken, inte överkolsyrad.
