An already full flavoured IPA, made with the very aromatic Simcoe hops is then made even bigger by using fresh ‘green’ Target hops infused into the slowly conditioning beer. Designed for those who like their hops as an extreme sport!

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma is very strong with grassy notes, green tea, herbs and some citrusy notes. Flavour of strong grassy hops, grapefruit, bitter green tea, pine and biscuity malts. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a pungent, lingering bitter, herbal finish. Great.

suprchunk (2173) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Fizzy gold color. Dense, creamy white head. Plenty of lacing. Big hop aroma. Fresh hops indeed. Malty flavor with a huge hop presence. Slight grassy note, but not overly offensive. Nice finish of malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (2966) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2013
Bottle. Golden, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, citrus and grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and caramel sweetish flavor, light fruitiness, piney and grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, caramel and faint fruitiness, lots of citrus - piney hoppyness. Really nice bitterness, but too much caramel for me/not dry enough.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2013 Pours light amber with a white head that thins quickly. Early carbonation. Citrus butter in the nose; refreshing balanced, citrus bitter taste. A good refreshing IPA, drink young.
