COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You don’t need a magic mirror to see the lure of this beer. It’s brewed with seven varieties of experimental dwarf hops. These hops are so called because of their uncommon growing method—shorter hedgerows rather than tall trellis systems—that yields a denser heap of cones with unique flavors that diverge from their full-grown botanical counterparts. Each year new and different varieties are grown in this method, creating untried and exciting shifts in hop character.

solid beer, tastes more like a wit than an IPA, but still a nice beer for late winter/early spring. Light and fluffy flavor, with a nice amount of hops, dwarf hops apparently...nice brew, I would have it again.

troyc (2862) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[Bottle] Deep golden pour with a large white cap of head on top. Lots of zesty citrus, pineapple and pine in the nose. Flavors of citrus hops, peppercorns, wheat malt, spruce, orange, yeasty esters and resin. A really nice hoppy bite in the finish. Highly drinkable and a nice blend of flavors. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

Cunningham (5085) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2015
Lovely cloudy pale yellow color with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Coriander, some yeast, mild malty and a bit citric. Medium body and a fine carbonation. God balance between sweetness and bitterness. Smooth easy drinkable wit. Not much IPA here. Herbal, coriander, some yeast, malty and mild citric flavor. Nice refreshing beer.

Vignale (2283) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
Flaska från SB. Gyllengul, lätt disig medelhögt vitt skum. Jag har mycket svårt att klämma in den här ölen i IPA-kategorin eftersom det är en relativt klockren wit. Och bra sådan. Fin jästighet, bra tydlig kryddning med koriander och curacao men kanske lite mer örtig och kryddig beska än en genomsnittlig wit. I den humle märks bidrar den med en friskt örtig gräsighet. Mycket gott.
