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 grandfatherís 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.

Without a doubt the best beer Iíve ever had. Itís the only one Iíve rated 11/11 by my own scoring method. It just has the right balance of everything. Itís a shame this has now been discontinued.

bottled. orange with a light haze and minimal white head; aroma of urinal cake and jelly crystals; a bit of roughness about the synthetic fruit flavours, saved somewhat by a good whack of bitterness
