COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Emphasizing that complexity of character can arise from simple elements, this ale is made with three malts and one hop. Its light amber color and slightly spicy malt character are derived from the use of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt respectively. North American 2-row barley combines with the other grains to lay the foundation for the hop onslaught to come. Summit hops are used exclusively in the boil for bitterness, flavor and aroma but it doesn’t end there. Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the 10% ABV monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma to join the 100 IBUs already present. This beer should greet you with a pungent citrus blast, provide a spicy yet round middle and finish with a brisk, clean bitterness.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2010
Can. A dark golden beer with a lazing yellowish head. The aroma has strong notes of spices, malt, caramel, and hops. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops lending it notes of grass, combined with notes of malt and alcohol, the latter tickling the palate, when the dry and bitter finish sets in. Like drinking hop soup.
