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.

Almost pink in color, light in carbonation. Smooth and easy drink. The hoppy bitterness comes in the finish.

Tap at Craft Beer Spot Hathor. Moderate citrus nose, some thick maltiness as well. Very pretty orange/amber color, with a creamy 2cm head. Citrus and caramel, citrusy hop jumps in mid, thins out slowly, some decent bitter tracks. Medium-heavy body. Nice enough. Alc. is quite noticeable.

sir__v (1689) - Lille, FRANCE - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: clear golden blond beer with no carbonation and no foam. Smell: hoppy domination. Grassy and floral. Not so fruity. Taste: medium body, grassy and hoppy taste. Balanced with caramel malt. Small alcohol finish. Aftertaste: grassy and wet bitterness. Nothing special...
