Hops- the best there is in this world! Well, almost. This is a hop driven beer. A beer where it is all about hops. But what kind of hops? We just couldn’t decide which, and used hops from all over the world; England, Slovenia, New Zealand, Czech Republic, USA, Germany and Australia. A total of 13 different types of hops. It does not get better than this!

500ml bottle, many thanks to Gunnar. Surprisingly low ABV for a beer showcasing 13 different world hops. As such it comes across a bit thin and sessionable and doesn’t appear to do the hops justice. Lightly citrussy but that’s about it. Shame.

Gerbeer (2573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 500 ml bottle. Best before 11/14. Pours a hazy amber with huge head. Aromas of spruce and lemons. Flavors of pine, citrus and a bit of toffee. long piney finish. Good, but nothing special - except for the ABV.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy orange pour with a bubbly off white head, peach and pine aroma, taste has quite bold malts with some light tropical fruit action mostly consisting of citrus, pine and a hint of grapefruit, pleasant enough.

erickok (4469) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2015
Pressure brew. Not only does this pack a huge hop flavour and surprisingly solid malts base, it also keeps things refreshing and within modest abv. Moreover, the beer keeps very interesting throughout the large bottle. Super modern and super satisfying. Yum! (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

500ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange color forming a huge creamy and soapy light yellow color. Amazing retention. Amazing foam. Very persistent. Lots of thin hop particles can be seen floating around. Strong notes of flowery and grassy hops in the nose followed by sweet malts and caramel. Slightly sweet upfront taste. Strong notes of sweet pale malts and caramel. Strong notes of grapefruit, tangerine and orange zest. Great and persistent bitterness. Citrus and flowery hops profile. Perfect medium body. Good carbonation. Light notes of bready yeasts. Grapefruit in the aftertaste. Excellent drinkability. Excellent APA. Could be easily classified as an IPA due to its strong and persistent hops profile.
