COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note - Hoppercar is a dry-hopped version of Conductor’s Craft Ale We used 5 different malts from Germany, France, Britain and Canada to give Conductor’s a biscuity, toasted, caramel base, and a combination of 5 different hops from Germany, the Czech Republic and the Pacific Northwest of the USA. To finish the beer we designed and built in-house a ‘hopback’ mechanism that infuses the hop aromas into the beer in line from the kettle as the beer goes into the fermenter. We use whole leaf hops of Cascade and spicy German Tetnanger in the hopback to provide a unique and intense hop aroma that is familiar but uniquely presented.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1950) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
Can. A really nice glowing amber pour with a thick foamy light beige head. Spicy malts, possibly rye & spelt, soft cocoa & citrusy lemon hop notes. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel & a sharp finish. The taste is a clean bitterness, nutty caramel malts & lots of lemony citrus hops.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Canned sample. Pale copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of fresh cut pine, white grapefruit pith, and toasted malt. More conifer notes in the mouth, along with mild citrus and a grainy finish. Moderate bitterness, medium bodied, and virtually no sweet caramel notes. Not bad overall.

Canmoore (255) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours a clear copper, and a huge creamy white head. Aroma notes include beautiful notes of citrus, caramel, toffee, and chewy malts. Tasting notes include rich caramels, toffee, citrus, and a delicate pine resin bitter finish. I always looked passed this beer, and now I wish I hadn’t! I think I might have a new go to beer!
