COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our cult beer, this is a "new world" interpretation of the classic English style. This ale features considerable crystal malt character, as a backbone to carry the hefty bitterness. Substantially dry hopped with carefully selected hops from either the US, NZ, or Australia (currently Nelson Sauv in from NZ), this adds aromatic and flavour notes of ripe passionfruit .

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Clear deep golden with an off-white head. Fresh citrusy hops in the nose with an underlying sweetness. Medium body, some caramel sweetness and distinct citrusy hoppiness. The finish may be considered a bit raw and unrefined from the bittering hops, but in general a decent APA. 150311

mkel07 (3731) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2010
330ml bottle. Deep amber colour with a crown of generous light white foam. Looks like it packs a punch and the aroma is full and inviting with toffee in the nose. Strong intense flavour that leaves a nice lingering aftertaste. Well balanced and a good represntation of the style.
