COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg, special
2013 Single-hop release. Part of the IPA is dead series. Single hopped with Amarillo @6.9%
Re-Released as part of 2014 selection. @7.2%
One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

This one is a good example of the power of american hops. One of the best ones from IPA is dead series. Fruity and bitter.

nihtila (1167) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015
19.4.2014. Clear pale colour, no head. Aroma has exotic fruits, peach, tangerine, zest. Taste is soft, very fruity, citrus, some pine. I guess this could be called well balanced and "pure", also rather straightforward. If nothing too spectacular, nothing bad either. Easy to drink, good.

CanCrusher (718) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle 0,33L. Hazy, copper colour, average big, creamy, off-white head, no visible carbonation. Aroma of oranges, pineapple, caramel. Taste is light bitter and fruity with long lasting aftertaste. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Not bad, but Amarillo hops offer much more. I have a feeling, they simply haven’t took the full advanteges of these hops. I have some really good Amarillo ipa’s in the past... Not bad, but nothing outstanding.

Great IPA. Nice citrus aroma however not so intense as I expected. Maybe I got a bad batch. Nevertheless it worth another try!

Trzecia już butelka z serii IPA IS DEAD od BrewDoga jest najlepszym dowodem na to, że najlepsze efekty daje użycie kilku gatunków chmielu. Jak to zrobić Panowie od BrewDoga wiedzą doskonale. Natomiast zrobienie Single Hopa już takie łatwe widać nie jest. Każdemu (jak do tej pory) piwu z serii czegoś brakuje. Wizualnie wszystko jest ok, ale zapach i smak to już nie to. Wyraźnie czuć rześkie nuty w zapachu i smaku, dominuje cytryna, ale goryczka nie jest tak intensywna i aromatyczna, jakiej się spodziewałem. Wysycenie dwutlenkiem węgla też wydaje mi się zbyt niskie. Nie jestem przeciwnikiem Single Hop, ale dochodzę do wniosku, że nie każdy chmiel się do tego nadaje...
