COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doug Odell’s admiration for the British brewing culture has led him across the pond - a lot. In 2008, Doug landed at Thornbridge Brewery and in the company of kindred brewing spirits. This visit led to a collaboration brew at Thornbridge in 2010. Fast forward to 2012 to find the two breweries at it again, this time at Odell Brewing. Pond Hopper Double Extra Pale Ale is the love child of this international brewmance. Brewed with English malts and American hops, Pond Hopper brings together the best ingredients each country has to offer, balancing a subtle sweet malt character with hints of mango and peach hop flavor. It pours a rich golden color with citrus and ripe melon essence in the nose. No matter which side of the pond you’re on, here’s to good beer and good friends. Cheers.

Igen ködös, narancssárga színe van, elég nagy, krémes, de nem túl kitartó habbal bír. Íze és illata is igen édes, aszalt gyümölcsös, lekváros, barackos, likőrös, malátás, kandiscukros. Elég sűrű, szirupos, testes, nem túl szénsavas, Utóíze lekváros, édeskés, tapadós. Nem rossz az íze, de nekem ez már túl édes, több komló még bőven elfért volna benne.

Stort tätt, vitt skum. Orange lite oklar. Stor humlearomatisk doft med tropiska frukter. Fet munkänsla med bra beska som hänger kvar länge. Nästan pepprigt kryddig i efterbeskan. Thornbridges mest spännande hittills!

Pours dark orange with a large head. Aroma of sweet caramely malts, grassy hops, hints of fruits and citrus. Taste is stingy, boozy and caramely with hints of fruits, grass and citrus. Finish is boozy, stingy and messy with hints of citrus, grass and fruits. Unbalanced and a bit messy.
