COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Mikkeller, we are firm in our belief that the best ideas from the brightest minds can be found among the ranks of the home-brewers. That is why we continue to nurture the innovative guys (so far only guys, come on ladies!) that make up the backbone of the big, bad home-brewing beer scene.
The 2011 Hop Bomb Challenge winner is Søren Davids – winning the title two years in a row! Our Swedish brothers followed up strongly, with Sea-goat Brewing coming in second and Christian Kapusta third.
A big thanks to all of you who went through the trouble of brewing and submitting a Hop Bomb. We at Mikkeller appreciate the amount of love (and hops) that goes into every one of your home-brews.
Brewed as collaboration between Søren Davids and Mikkeller.

Ingredienser: Vand, malt, (Pale, Munich, Caramunich, Wheat), humle (Simcoe, Centennial, Athanum) og gær.

Draft at Mikkeller, Copenhagen. Hazy amber beer, little off white head. Softish palate with fine stinging carbonation. Creamy malt well joined up to a vicious hop attack. Juicy orange marmalade and bitter fresh yellow grapefruit. Strong bitter linger. Sigh! Nice to be back in the Mikkeller bar - wish they would open a London one!
