COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Free Beer - What if quality could be cheap? What if high content beer could be cheaper than low content beer? Would this affect choice?

This reflection sparked the second collaboration of Evil Twin Brewing & Omnipollo. An IPA brewed using an abundance of Australian and New Zeeland hops laid on a fluffy bed of English, Belgian and German malts.

The twist - to remove the money aspect of choosing craft beer we decided to bring in a sponsor.

Batch #1 is generously sponsored by The Bishops Arms. Specialty beer bar and pioneers of the Swedish craft beer scene.

Enjoy,

Henok & Jeppe

_angst_ (2696) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2012
Draught @ Bishops Arms Skövde. Pours tiny hazy golden with a rather small frothy offwhite head that sticks to the glass while dissipating, leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is fruity, tiny malty and hoppy fresh with biscuits, grapefruit juice, peaches, unripe pineapple, freshly cut grass, crackers, lemon zest, papaya, passion fruit and hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity and herbal with biscuits, crackers, kiwi fruit, passion fruit, pineapple, pink grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, gooseberries, lemon zest, lemon zest, unripe papaya, star fruit, lemon balm and hints of parsley. Mouthfeel is round, tiny crisp, tiny watery, slightly oily bitter and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter, fruity and herbal with biscuits, pineapple, gooseberries, passion fruit, star fruit, lemon balm, pink grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, white grapes and lemon zest. Wow! What a nice and refreshing beer. More elegant and balanced than previous hoppy Omnipollo beers yet incredibly drinkable.
