COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop is een fris en hoppig bier. Dit bier is drie keer gehopt. De kookhop levert de bittere basis. Het 90 minuten continu hoppen garandeert een fantastische boer. Een mooie aromahop verzorgt het bouquet. Californian lagergist accentueert de mout. Dit alles gecombineerd met een alcoholpercentage van 6,6%. HOP is een fris en hoppig bier. Single Hop NZ Pacific Jade Deze triploïde hop met Engelse, Amerikaanse en Nieuw Zeelandse roots geeft het bier een houtig karakter met een vleugje bramen. Het 2 uur continu toevoegen van deze hop tijdens het brouwen garandeert een fantastische boer. Dry hop Het toevoegen van extra hop tijdens de lagering versterkt de hop geur en de hop smaak zonder het bier bitterder te maken. Deze bitter blond of IPL bevat uitsluitend natuurlijke biologische ingrediënten en is ongefilterd en ongepasteuriseerd. Let op, bevat gluten, niet geschikt voor zwangere vrouwen, jongeren en chauffeurs. 2 jaar houdbaar, wel koel en donker bewaren.

jerohen (2071) - Bussum, - OCT 26, 2012
Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Hazy golden colored, medium head. Hoppy nose, floral, straw, malts, some caramel perhaps. Hopbitter flavor, oily, developing, some fruit. Interesting type of hops. Not necessarily my favorite but interesting and original.

Vili (146) - FINLAND - JUL 9, 2015
33cl bottle. Cloudy, golden pour with thick, foamy, white head - nice lacing. Aromas of raw citrus, cellar and grass. Taste is extremely aggressively bitter, a bit thin on the malts, very fresh. Aftertaste is short and bitter with dry finish. Maybe a bit too aggressive and one-sided but interesting beer.

mile (3428) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light - some caramel and light floral fruitiness with some citrus - herbal hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and floral fruitiness some citrus - herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and dryish, lots of sharp herbal - some citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. Really well hopped but aroma/finish are not in balance. Finish could use fruitiness found in aroma.

Maakun (1538) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
Bottle shared, NZ Pacific Gem single hop. Slight gusher, slight hazy orange golden with very big fluffy off white head. Mango, pineapple, passion fruit, some peppery yeast. Fruity sweetness with some mineral water, hint of funk, and bone dry medium to strong bitter finish. Medium bodied. Very nice, though I have to say the taste is not as good as the massive fruity nose.

On bottle from Bierkonig Amsterdam, early April 2015. Golden slightly hazy color, good foam. Immediately hoppy aromas,( expected it to be apa/ipa), fruity, some wheat and very light caramel notes. Medium body & complexity. Good bitterness, balances well. Very enjoyable

I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. I realy did. Yes, it’s fairly one dimensional, mostly a very distinct hoppy bitternes, but I happen to like that. At the back, there was some malty character noticable, but the hops prevail.
