COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
U.S Meets Europe S.I.P.A. - Collaborating with De Molen Brewery in the "Green Heart" of The Netherlands, we have created a wild and inventive recipe that is a unique blend of the best from both worlds! A super-charged Saison I.P.A. is born, featuring kilos of American hops to add a crazy twist to this European-style ale. The fruity, spicy flavors of this malty Double Saison are nicely complimented by an abundance of late and dry-hopping with the finest American hops.

This is the Hoppin’ Frog version, for the De Molen version go to that brewery’s page.

Hazy deep amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Nose of generic fruits sherbet and malt cream. Palate is smooth and viscous with fine carbonation. Smooth malt cream supports pleasant generic fruit sherbet, gets zingy before turning slightly yeasty bitter. Mild minerals before a smooth finish. Fruity aftertaste. Unusual and tasty beer.
