COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

morri (277) - - NOV 30, 2013
500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Two finger off-white head. Thick foam with good lacing. Amber body. Aroma is first and foremost sweet malt supported by herb-like hops. Some wood and something that reminds me of cough drop. Mostly bitter on the tongue at first, then becomes more round and gentle. Dry and full on the palate. Warming alcohol feel. Long bitter aftertaste. This was in fact the first IPA I ever had. It’s pretty good, but a little too sweet and malty for my taste.

Lore (2091) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 27, 2016
hazy orange to amber colour, medium sized, dense yellowish head;aroma of overripe fruits like mango, some peach, grape, maybe grapefruit, too, marmalade, caramel biscuit, honey and some resins; taste is dominated by syrupy sweetness with overripe fruits, honey and some resiny notes; despite the intensive syrupy sweetness, both the hoppy bitterness and some alcoholic notes can also be felt; amazing IIPA! not a devastating hop-bomb, but still a perfect one! I think, I’m falling in love :-)
