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!

HKdIPA (675) - HONG KONG - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy - quite hazy - orange copper. Aroma is good - lots of mingling hop flavors: zesty citrus, lush mango and pineapple, pine, earthy spice. Taste is less exciting, but still good. Very smooth in palate and taste. Hoppiness is more subdued - a bit musty, resinous, some apple. Not too little flavor considering it's a relatively light beer but not as much as I was hoping for. Might not be that fresh though.

Fruit, citrus, is drunk easily. Very decent APA. Excellent hop bitterness on the finish.

Cruzer (103) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Quite enjoyed this one, packed a lot of hops for only 4.5% ABV. Sweet citrus and malty aroma, with a flavour of strong bitter hops but with hints of grapefruit and orange.

loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2014
Blonde orangée, légèrement voilée. Grosse mousse blanche persistante, beaux lacings. Aromatique très houblonnée, sur le pin... puis côté tropical, avec léger côté agrumes (plutôt orange). Maltage caramel décelable. Très portée sur l’houblon, mais nez très balancé avec les différents houblons. En bouche plutôt fruitée on peut ressentir un côté herbeux et résineux qu’on a moins au nez. Une amertume s’affirmant d’entrée, mais restant très balancée tout le long. Forte sécheresse. Très bonne APA, avec une frontière de plus en plus fine avec les IPA. Et on aime ça!

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a large off-white head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit and orange. Quite sweet flavor with a dry and dominant grassy bitterness at the end.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
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 (4022) - 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.

Lowenbrau (3207) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 14, 2014
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.
