COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tip Top Hop is a continually hopped IPA. What does that mean? Well most IPA’s have 3 hop additions, at the beginning, and two near the end. Not this one, oh no, we just keep adding. This builds a complex hop aroma and flavour. Placed atop a simple Malt bill helps accentuate that hoppy zing that we all look for!

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Flaske 0,33l spandert av Rune og delt under samling hos ham 6 Feb 14. Lys gylden. Litt uklar. Betongskum med kniplingslacing. Aroma av surøl. Overraskelse! Smaken er tørr, syrlig frukt. Annerledes øl - men ikke helt i min smak.

Rune (8466) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2014
330ml bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras in London. Dense, bubbly, white head. Hazy golden. Grassy hops and farmyard aroma. Herbal hoppy taste, notes of semi-tart citrus. Yeasty fruitiness to a slightly tart ending. Quite well balanced. Different and likable (shared with Finn, Tromsø 06.02.2014).

Slightly hazy orange golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, apricot and hops. Light bitter flavour, hops and yeast. Light hoppy finish, spices, citrus and yeast. Quite nice, it has an easily drinkable quality to it.

Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is tarte fruit, bitter orange, apricot, grass. Taste comprises orange pith, grass, lightly soured fruit, sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with light hop bitterness. So so.

Bottle from Ales by mail, enjoyed in Panormo, Greece. Pours hazy golden with a huge creamy off-white head. Aroma of sweet marmelade, tangerine. Taste is very dry, citrussy hops, tangerine and orange,sweet marmelade, moderate bitter aftertaste, a bit on the dry side, but enjoyable.

Complicated and not altogether pleasant. Foggy and murky flat amber appearance with no head and vanilla yeasty aroma. Initial taste is medium-full sweet with a sour aftertaste with some citrus in there. Small sips required. Kudos for the attempt, but it didn’t seem to correlate with the hoppy description.
