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 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.

bartlebier (3425) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2015
Draught pint@Nøgne Ø Tap Takeover, Red Hot, München 03/2015. Medium-bodacious fresh straw yellow pour, some creaminess. The global get-together of hops does not spark an immediate explosion of expressive hops as imagined, but rather perch in the nostrils with suave United Nations in plenary session comportment: some exotic, earthier resins than just citrus (green berry, star fruit, indeed physalis) nevertheless bid a gentle welcome. Taste is more of a gentle invite than an uncouth kick in the teeth as well: cakey, doughy malts cushion and absorb a host of orchard fruit and citrus hop micro-accents. Easygoing, utopian i.e. non-locateable, pale ale betrayed by a European sense of balance.
