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.

seritomi (297) - HUNGARY - JAN 20, 2014
Nagyon szép a színe, sötét sárga és tiszta. Sajnos a habja nem túl bika hamar off lesz. Ezt később erősíti a csak lebegő és nem felszálló kevés buborék. Erős szúrós illat szinte méreg szerű aztán mellette ott van a finom citrusos mandarin és egy kis karamell. Érdekes tompa íze van olyan fickósörös egy kicsit. Közepesen keserű meglehetősen édes, ragacsos. Annyira nem is érezni a magas alkoholtartalmat. Összességében egy feltűnő nem tipikus sör de nekem nem elég harmonikus vagy ha a punkokat nézzük nem elég extrém. Talán a főzde egyik általam kóstolt leggyengébb söre...
