COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale marks our journey to the only place on the planet where fresh hops are harvested in our spring, the Southern Hemisphere. Our task was daunting-we needed to get the hops picked, dried, flown halfway across the world and into our brew kettle in a little over a week’s time. The result is a North-by-South fusion of fresh New Zealand hops blended with the finest North American malts. Its robust hop character presents an intriguing floral-citrus aroma leading to layers of fresh-hop spiciness. Enjoy!

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
Bottle 71 cl. Pours a warm amber golden with a tall and dense off-white head. Rather light citrusy nose with a leathery hoppiness. Medium body, rather light mouthfeel, quite some caramel and fruit and a hop bitterness in the finish that grows and becomes rather distinct but not very refined. Disappointing actually. 100709
