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.

Theydon_Bois (9125) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, picked up from BD SB, split with JF on the train to nowhere mini tasting, 30/12/13. From the bottle so guessing golden amber with a decent off white head - says Phillip S Styne. Nose is a tropical fruit medley, peach, mango, orange sherbet, pine resin, hop notes, toasted malts. Taste carries a big mango punch, passion fruit, fleshy peach, mandarin, caramel malt, red grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hop lead bitterness in the closure. Nice work from BD - decent hopped up tropical juice!

mgajdaczewa (552) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 30, 2013
W aromacie dzieje się niewiele, ale jak już sie dzieje to jest nieźle. Przebijają się nutki chmielowo - kwiatowe, lekka ziołowość. Jest w tym trochę świąt. W smaku nad goryczką dominuje słodycz, lekki miód, owoce tropikalne skontrastowane ziołowym charakterem i kwiatową goryczką, która z każdym łykiem się zwiększa. Smaczna IPA.

Butelka 0.3L Złote przygaszone, średnioobfita biała piana. A aromacie dużo chmielu, żywica, cytrusy i trochę cebuli i skarpet - typowe simcoe. Smak mocno owocowe, chmielowe i lekki alkohol. Goryczka niska jak na styl. Dobre mocno chmielone IPA
