COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The arrival of hops to the brewing scene in England in the 1500’s led to a moral panic. Hops were condemned as a “wicked and pernicious weed”, one which would lead to the erosion of social and moral standards. Thank goodness they were right. Here’s hoping that our homage to the original pernicious weed continues this gradual decline. Organic Rakau and whole cone Nelson Sauvin go head to head in this strong, golden, hoppy brew. Bitter, yes. Intensely hoppy, absolutely. Too much, never.

Bärnstensfärgad klar med vit skum. Mycket tropisk frukt i doft och smak! Bra "klibbig" beska. Riktigt humlepigg och bra!

Burk från SB, mixpack från Garage Project. Klarorange med vitt högt skum. Stor fruktig och juice:ig doft av mango, ananas och citrus. Medelstor kropp. Nära doften i smaken men med en större plats åt beskan. Gott!

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
2016-05-17. Lightly hazy orange body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma has nice fruity hoppy character, citrus maybe mango? 7+ Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, nice fruity character, some citrus and a melange of fruit that escapes my dissection today. Moderate bitterness throughout grows as you go a bit. 7++ Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 7/3-4/7+/3/16-17 On tap at Smith’s, Queenstown, NZ.
