COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottled, 2013 release
Using the same base 6.7% beer, a baby version of our Hardcore, we slam a mouth puckering 75 IBUs on top of a base of Marris Otter, Crystal Malt and Caramalt before throwing dizzying amounts of hops at these beers.
A pseudo noble hop. Noble like a mother fucking king. But not a boring king. Noble like a chain smoking, pimp of a pinball wizard king. Apparently, they are the best kind.
Hailing from Slovenia, Dana was originally cross bred from the German Hallertau Magnum and native Slovenian varieties. Like any good faux noble hop should it infuses a rustic, musty spiciness into a classic beast of a malt base, just like your grandfather’s old school aftershave.
This hop of Eastern European origin is best enjoyed whilst dreaming up a song about a lovely donkey that fell in love with a princess that is destined to take the Eurovision song contest by storm.

Återigen en goding i serie. Funkar inte till fotbollsmatchen då man inte kan fokusera för mycket på ölen och måste se matchen ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the best mouthfeels I have encountered. Super smooth but with an edge so interesting. Excellent hop aroma and flavour. Very good

Grima (2083) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours amber colored with a flat creamy head. Smells very fruity with passion fruit, mango and some peach. Starts intense fruity, lots of tropical fruit, maracuja and some caramel malts. Middle part has adorable floral hop notes. Finish has also flowery hops and some herbal notes, paired with some tropical fruits. Awesome IPA!!!

Not as punchy with the hops flavours as the others in the series, much more of a malt presence. The most sessionable of the lot.

Butelka 0.3L. Bursztynowe, zmętnienie drożdżowe. Obfita jasnokremowa piana, szybko opada ale ładnie krążkuje na szkle. Aromat w porównaniu do Waimea i el dorado mniej słodki oraz zdecydowanie bardziej ziołowy niż owocowy. Mało intensywny. W smaku przez mniej intensywne aromaty chmielowe bardziej wyczuwalny alkohol. Goryczka również inna - trawiasta, łodygowa, mniej przyjemna niż w poprzednich. Ogólnie ten chmiel raczej rozczarowuje. Na mój gust za bardzo trawiasty i za mało przykrył alkohol, zakładając że baza identyczna była we wszystkich przeze mnie pitych.
