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!

kustie (472) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle from Stockmann. Hazy, light orange color and small but thick head. Aroma has caramel, hops, fruits. Sweet taste that ends to nice long hoppy, quite dry and bitter aftertaste. Flavors of grape, caramel, black pepper, hops. Excellent pale ale with this kind of alcohol percentage.

motelpogo (7605) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 30, 2014
on tap at beergeek in prague. pale orange colour with a light haze; oddly but agreeably unfruity - extremely dry finish, hints of chalk, minerals, limestone, baking soda. not what i would have guessed i wanted in an apa but i found it a pleasant change from juicy, fruity ales

Maakun (1866) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2014
Light amber with big fluffy unstable off white head. Massive hops with tropical fruits, tangerine, lime, flowery and light resin. Then a light malty body with a touch of nuts and caramel, but the whole ale is quite thin and dry and the malt backbone takes a backseat. Therefore mainly bitter and slight tartness and the sweetness is very light. Light to medium bodied with quite a lot of carbonation. Pretty nice stuff for the abv.

50 cl. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! Average creamy off-white head. Good lacing, lightly cloudy amber. Nose is typical pine resin & grapefruit peel hops mixed with some herbal notes (les usual) touch more malt presence, cereal. Taste is touch sugar, bread, cereal + 50/50 herbal + pine & grapefruit peel hops, herbal lingers more in the finish, faint vanilla upfront. Medium body, touch malt feel, good carbonation. Standard fare but well-done and definitely satisfactory.
