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.

Ottima! Che bomba! Bella arancione, schiuma cremosa non molto persistente, tripudio di odori natalazi, freschi, pino o rosmarino su tutti. I sapori freschi si ritrovano anche nel sapore dissetante! retrogusto fresco saporito lunghissimo e persistente!

Kurtos (113) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours a pale copper with a nice cloudiness. Aroma. Strait away i get a whiff of tropical flavours, followed by pine and citrus. Taste. The taste is very complex and is quite similar to the marketing description, this is a beer dominated by piney flavours complimented well with tropical, stone and citrus fruits, i’m very surprised that a single hop ipa could be so complex. Overall. This beer is faultless, i would love to see it as a permanent addition to brew dogs range.

Lore (1359) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 24, 2012
dark golden colour with moderate head; excellent citrus aroma (as usually in case of a BrewDog IPA) and hoppy bitterness of taste with significant grapefruit signs. Perfect, as always.

Small white head, doesnt stay for long, but leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is typical Simcoe, citrus and tropical fruit. Very hoppy. Taste is medium bitter and a little sweet. Little malt
