COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The second you open this bottle there is no mistaking that this is not your average IPA. Massive hop additions of the most obnoxious breeds put this taste bud burner in a league all it’s own. Our bet is that you will think it is O’so Freakishly good! Caution! This brew is 9% and may contain a hop cone in every bottle (2009 to present vintages) ! We want to make sure to repeat this reminder that we put a hop cone in the bottle. Always pour into a glass to release the essence from the bottle.

2008 Edition: 22-oz bottle
2009 Edition: 12-oz bottles w/hop cone in bottle
2010 - 2013 Editions: 12-oz bottles w/Hop Warning label

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2010
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of SecretSanta himself. Pours amber with a slight haze and a small and discreetly lazing off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma and some licorice allsorts - hops too, but not excessive. Solid body, lots of fruit and caramel with perfumy hops that leave quite some bitterness. But a rather balanced IIPA that isn’t overly aggressive. And yeah, the hop cone was there! 100410
