COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hoppy Sundown er gøgebryg nummer 2 fra Randers Bryghus.
Dette bryg er en eXXtra humlet udgave af en darker shade of pale ale, og er derfor ikke en IPA. Øllets farve minder om bryghusets patinerede kobberkedler (mørk kobber). Urten er humlet før kogning (first worth hopping), under kogning ad flere omgange og lige før urten skulle i whirlpoolen. Efter nogen lagringstid har vi yderligere tørhumlet øllet. Der blev brugt Nugget, Chinook, Cascade og Centennial humle i rå mængder. Resultatet er ikke en verdensrekord i bitterhed, det lader vi andre om. Men på godt jysk, ligger bitterheden på den stive side af kuling.
Brygget er absolut limited edition, med kun 1250 flasker. De fleste drikker vi selv, og resten vil blive solgt fra bryggeriet og i få udvalgte forretninger.
Gøgebryggerne til dette bryg var: Søren Davids, Uffe Lindhard, Karl Nissen, Henrik Feldthaus, Flemming Bie, Jan Kristoffersen, Søren Hjortbøl, Jimmy Andersen, Kjeld Ørskov, Stefan Kappel.
Indeholder: Bygmalt, Humle, Hvedemalt og Gær.
