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!

Perfect pitcher and hockey beer. Gold with rich white bubbles. Hips meld together in a pale ale for a very quaffable well hopped but restrained beer.

Habanero (3084) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, orange, piney notes and a hint of mango and peach. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and decent bitter. A nice PA.

500ml bottle @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo.13-07-2014.
In short: overcarbonated pale ale.
Pours cloudy golden with frothy off white hea. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Fruity, peachy, citrusy aromas. Light to medium body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite fruity, some harsh due to overcarbonation, citrusy, moderate bitterness.

RumRunner101 (866) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
Light amber pour. Aroma is surprisingly fresh for the age - fruity with citrus and sweet malts. Flavour has summer fruits with grapefruit and orange peel. Nice bitterness. Great for the ABV.

MarkoNm (1196) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - OCT 20, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange/golden color, topped with a decent beige head - very decent retention. A pleasantly mild but obvious fruity aroma. The taste starts sweet and fruity, following the nose, finishing with a decent, but not too strong bitterness. Very drinkable. Like it.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Golden brown, opaque with nice white foam. Well aromatic, although the smell is that of a typical pale ale. The taste is also very pure cultivated PA. No surprises, but good at what it does.

CapFlu (4725) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Pours a small white frothy head that dissipated to the edges, while the body is a cloudy, sediment-filled orange body. Nose of composted blood oranges, somewhat musky and hosting an Irish Red malt background. Flavour is rather tart, front of marmalade, citrus rind and a dirty finish. There’s a ton of flavour packed into this 4.5% beer. Good. Purchased at Metro Liquors in Saanich for ~$7.60 per bottle.
