COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Giocosa IPA!

E’ una black I.P.A. nera da 6,8% alc.vol. e 60 IBU di amaro, a tutti gli effetti una India Pale Ale con luppoli americani e aromi balsamici e fruttati, ma con impiego anche di malti scuri torrefatti, che donano alla birra il carattere “black”. L’amaro felice di un due di picche!

Il 2 di picche è quello che ci si è presi da una ragazza il giorno prima di decidere il nome… Due di picche è infondo quello che vale questa birra! :-)
Prodotta tutto l’anno.

Skinnyviking (8550) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2015
33 cl. bottle at home. Meium high creamy and long lasting light brown head. Black body. Solid roasted malt caramel coffee aroma. Powerful roasted malt caramel coffee flavor with a good deal of hops bitterness. Low carbonation, long dry finish. Alcohol wll hidden. Of course there is a lot of hops in this beer but I like the fact that the malt is equally dominant and that the balance of the beer is not spoiled by too much alcohol . Nice surprise.

Flaske fra Kihoskh, delt med Ovesen på Holmens aktivitetsdag: brunsvart med fint beige skum. Aroma: furunål, grapefrukt og kaffe/røstet malt. Smaken likeledes, og den er lekkert balansert. Slank, og med avrundet bitterhet i ettersmaken. Raske leker (lekre saker).
