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.

Flaska 650 ml systembolaget. Lätt disig orange vätska. Bra humletryck i doften. Söt med torkad druva, citrus, barr med lite inslag av vilda bär. Detta är en riktig jävla humlebomb. Smaken saknar dock den där färska touchen av citrus och färskt hö som jag hoppats på. Möjligen lite trött eller så kör humlebeskan över smakpaletten totalt. Beskan går definitivt inte att klaga på. Annars maltig smak med lite blöt säd, rågbröd och värmande alkoholtouch.

Another killer IPA from Garage Project. This stuff really needs to make it over to the US. Perfect aroma and taste, big but tempered hop aroma and flavor, cloudy orange gold body with creamy head. Essence of pine resin lingers with a hint of grapefruit. Top notch.

wihlan (390) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2015
Flaska från systemet - något blommig i aromen. Härligt grumlig med vitt skum. Mysig beska och len i munnen. Kraftfull kropp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

aleksander9 (694) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
Golden with white head. Good lacing. Pine, resin, grapefruit, earth and green hop aroma. Dry, green hop, earth, fruit and lingering grass finish. Overall: Needs more hops(ironic). Absolutely beast mode DIPA.

Bottle. Hazy orange liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, grain, bread and citrus. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of pineapple, elderflower, mango, bread, tangerine and lemon peel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice, really hoppy.

Extremely hoppy beast that was possibly too much for me. Really aromatic, and quite bitter. Lovely orange golden colour. Definitely an acquired taste!

Pours clear, very slightly golden. Aroma is hoppy, pine is dominant. Taste is complex, dominated by hops, nelson is promonant.

12oz can pours a golden orange color with a bit of frothy head. Intense hoppiness giving lots of tropical flavors.
