English: At Mikkeller we believe that it is among the inventive amateurs that the wildest beers are being brewed and it is precisely those brewers that we like to work with. That is why we have a competition each year to test who can brew the most intense hop bomb. This year, Søren Davids won that competition.
This beer is brewed as a collaboration between Søren Davids and Mikkeller.

Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of hops, lending it notes of grapefruit, grass, lemon peal, and alfa acid. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, lemon peal, grapefruit, and malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish. The body is on the light side - I guess it has a low level of residual sugar.
