COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottle, 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.
The Pacific North West of America is home to the brand speanking new El Dorado Hop. America is not just about cheer-leaders, a silly version of football, elastic top jeans and cheeseburgers. They grow remarkable hops and El Dorado is a killer example of this, embodying all that is good about American hops and then some. A new hop on the block, it may even seduce you into thinking the American Dream is not just a catch phrase to sell movies and elect Presidents. Fearfully hard to resist, this beer is loaded with tropical fruits, pear, watermelon, candy floss and stone fruit. Devilishly moreish.

calm_dreamer (158) - GREECE - JUN 12, 2014
Bright orange medium body with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, pine hoppiness and some wild fruit. Full taste. Malt, caramel, a note of fruit, maybe mango and passion fruit and some alcohol. Aftertaste that leaves the mouth stiff.

pivnizub (8747) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 26, 2014
Bottle: Deep golden, hazy with an orangey sheen, small off-white foamy layer, caramel, cough syrup and medical hops in the nose; moderate to solid dryish bitter-sweet flavour, relatively full bodied; some tartness in the nevertheless balanced hoppy and malty finish. Good, but not excellent…

dr_brewer (5) - Ourense, SPAIN - APR 24, 2014 does not count
Pours hazy orange, modest foam. Aroma is resiny with some sweet and toasty malt notes. I get jam (berries), also in the taste, with spicy and peppery notes in the end and a balanced bitterness. Interesting hop, El Dorado. Would like to taste it in a dark beer.

Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours strong amber colored with a flat head. Smells very floral and herbal, slight fruity. Starts with herbal hops, very floral, with a hint of honey. Middle part has lots of herbs and floral hops. Finish is also deliciously herbal and floral, with some slight fruity hops.

radzik5555 (246) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 9, 2014
Butelka 0.3L. Jasnobursztynowe, mętne z średnią, zbitą, jasnokremową pianą. Aromat chmielowo-słodowy. Mniej intensywne aromaty chmielowe niż w waimei. Również dość słodkie, przypominające dojrzałe jasne tropikalne owoce, głównie melon. W smaku też podobne do poprzedniego (Waimea) tylko z goryczką bardziej owocową, delikatniejszą. Nie czuć tu 75 IBU z penością. Stawiałbym bardziej w okolice 45 IBU. Bardzo podobne do Waimea tylko trochę mniej chmielowe i odrobinę mniej słodki aromat. Wysycenie niskie, ciało średnie, faktura metaliczna.

Botella de 33 cl en el Lúpulo en agosto de 2013. Lote 070 hasta 27-03-2014. Esta ya no es tan herbácea,,, con algunas notas mas intensas afrutadas y algo dulces, hasta el momento la mejor de las que he probado ( waimea, y dana)

Hops aroma with hints of pine and berries, so smooth with a slight resin mouth. I loved it.
