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!

Very hazy dark amber beer, decent off white head. Palate is light and crisp and airy. Light airy malt, semi dry. Orangey hops with touches of tangerine and hops spice. Whisper of lemon. Finishes light with a mild bitter linger. Not bad but I was expecting a belter here.

Bottle. A more or less clear one, golden in color and topped by a small, white head. The aroma is fruity and floral, with mango and peaches. Some maltyness. The flavor is equally pleasant, with the hops playing the major part. Some maltyness and sweetness, and a fine bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Mostly bitter finish. Overall, a tad too sweet to be the refreshing and quenching summer beer I hoped for. Still, it’s a nice beer. 130521
