COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lots of people said to us we should make a lower alcohol beer, a more easy drinking session-like beer. We at Rooie Dop agreed and made a promise. Here it is: The 24/7 Session Ale! This member of the Rooie Dop family is clean and very hoppy. Saaz hops from the old world balancing out the epic Citra hops from the new world. A beer with less than 5% alcohol, session drinking all day long!

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Bottled. An amber beer with a huge beige head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.

Desverger (2094) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle@Papsoes - golden amber pour with medium white head and lacing. Aroma and taste is a medley of tropical a d citrus fruits, some caramel, toffee, great pine on the palate, refreshing and enjoyable.

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
UFO-riddled bottle, raising a tower of dense, fine, yellow head, slowly giving birth to orange gold-to-copper, very finely and lively carbonated, but strangely enough near clear beer. C-hop aroma, but also cookies, even liquorice. Exotic fruit syrup, rosewater concentrate - smelling pretty sweet. Toasted and hopbitter, but with a really syrupy-sweet undercurrent. Fruit dried fruit on cake, liquorice, bitter spices. Very slightly sticky, well-carbonated, light to medium bodied. Hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Somehow, it doesnít convince me - thereís just too much sweet malts for its intended purpose. Which does not make it a bad beer, mind!

adasko (319) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 6, 2014
An awesome session beer. Itís unbelievable drinkable. Can drink it seriously all day long. Itís very delicate in the aroma and taste. Itís like delicate great IPA, full of american hops, which give smooth feeling in aroma and taste. Looks good, smells good, taste good.

pkomar (44) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Citrus fruits in aroma, a bit of caramel and resin in the background. Pours slightly hazy golden with nice head. Small lacing. Taste is again filled with citrus and caramel, unfortunately there are also some honey notes in the background. Good bitterness. Medium-high carbonation. Quite drinkable. Good beer, but these caramel and resin notes and a bit of alcohol felt in the background donít really fit the definition of session ale for me. Not a bad beer, though.

Leighton (10967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours mostly clear, rich gold with a large, frothy white head. The aroma holds dry and leafy pine, some orange rind, herbs. Light sweet flavor, fairly dry, with some pale bread, mineral flint, tangerine and orange rind, pine needles. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Pretty well balanced on the finish, some lightly toasted, dried out pale malts, more dry citrus rind, light bitter pine and sun-kissed grass. A good offering.

olio (6166) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Lots of resinous hops on the nose, caramel malts too, I would have guessed this as a DIPA from the aroma if tasted blind, some grapefruits, pine needles and grainy notes can be found too. Resinous hops again on the flavor, caramel, sweet fruity notes and wood. Strong carbonation, bitter malty finish. Lots of flavor here but somehow itís not that pleasant for me, maybe too resinous or something.

rikstar (754) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
0,33l fles. Oranje troebel met een ruige crŤmekleurige schuimkraag. Geur Is Citra met gras en gist. Smaak Is graan en hoppig met een redelijkbgistbitter mooi vol in de afdronk. Mooi bier zeker gezien het alcoholpercentage.

Nocturne (784) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
330ml bottle. First pour is clear copper, the second a hazy brown. Lots of foam. Aroma is bright with citra hop fruitiness and pine. Taste is more muted, fruity but faded hops, and the body isnít strong enough to carry the weight. Bit of a disappointment on the whole.

jackafholmes (197) - - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle from beer52. Very feisty when pouring, resulting in a huge head. Very aromatic, strong lychee and tropical aroma. Very tasty, crisp bitter and refreshing. Carbonation is prickly. Good stuff.
