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.

Ambar alaranjada, pouca espuma. Olftato: álcool perceptível, lembrando um pouco berry. Paladar: pouco de madeira, aftertaste bem balanceado tendendo para adocicado.

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...

Bleki (104) - Gliwice, POLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Pours amber, little bit hazy, nice head reduced to a ring. Nice aroma of grapefruits and pines, plus some tropical fruits. In taste medium sweet, light to medium bitter. Medium body with oily texture and average carbonation. Bitter finish. Nice one.

Deep amber with a medium white head. Fruity aroma (passion fruit, oranges, apples, apricot) with some herbal notes. Taste is strong bitterness with sweet/citric fruits notes (pineapples, apples, passion fruit), caramel and light alcohol presence. Bittersweet finish.

pastymc (18) - Niscemi, ITALY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottiglia 33 cl Color biondo ambrato, rame, molto limpida. Schiuma, bianca, troppo evanescente. Al naso l’amarillo è ben presente, con le sue note erbacee ed agrumate; presenti anche note maltate, leggermente tostate alla fine. Il luppolo è il protagonista in bocca, ancora agrumi, con il suo amaro tanto decisioni e quanto piacevole. Emergono alcune note di caramello. Carbonazione medio-bassa, finale secco ma breve, e questo è un peccato. Ben strutturata ma alcuni errori non la rendono ottima
