COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Pours a hazy orange with barely any head. The aroma is dominated by hops, but the blend of 13 different hops don’t leave room for nuances. Other aromas are hay, resin, yeast, and cookies. Taste is bitter and dry. The mouthfeel is thick, almost syrupy, and the beer is almost flat.

Big, white head, long lasting with nice lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus and pine, very rich and strong smell. It has maltiness too. Flavour is quite the same. Very citrussy, grassy with a touch of mango and english hops dried fruits. Good malt profile (bread, caramel). Carbonation is too high but if you pour it agressively, it becomes quite enjoyable. High drinkability, very refreshing. It is quite dry, sweetness is very low. Bitterness show up in the end. It is sour like fresh citrus fruits. 4,5% but still rich and good beer.
