“blended hoppe & unearthly” High in the winter sky, two parallel stick figures are visible & known as “the twins,” or the constellation Gemini.

Blended together & placed in this vessel, the mission of our Gemini is to travel high & take passengers on a journey far into the heavens. 10.5% abv • 5.8şL * 22° Plato

Borostyán színe van, belül ködös, gomolygó, sűrűnek néz ki. Habja tört fehér, termetes és igen tartós. Illata hasonlít egy trópusi gyümölcsökből készült lekvárhoz, ami mellett egy nagy csokor frissen vágott fenyőgally van, kevés fűszer, boróka, fehér bors és mandarin likőr. Ízében is rengeteg az édes, zamatos trópusi gyümölcs, aminek viszont az édességét rendkívül szépen kiegyensúlyozza a mázsányi illatos, gyantás amerikai stílusú komló. Igen testes, sűrű és pezsgőszerűen apró buborékokkal teli. Utóízében is érezni a sok gyümölcsöt, először keserédesen, de ott a szigorú, igazi keserűség is a legvégén, ami rendkívül szárazan fejeződik be a végtelenségig kitartva. Nem kezdőknek való, brutálisan jó darab!

Bomber. This is a blend of Un*Earthtly and Hoppe, so the result is predictably somewhere in between. Hazy with a good head (thank you, wheat), but also lotsa hops. To me, the hops don’t add much bitterness, although it does finish very dry. Instead they add tons of flavor. Orange or tangerine more than pine or grapefruit. Maybe Juicy Fruit gum more than anything else. Striking in this respect. Doesn’t feel like an Imperial until the buzz kicks in.

Zer0 (1125) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 Bottle. Pours hazy golden. Aroma is hops, citrus, grapefruit, hay and yeast. Thick mouthfeel, a bit oily. Not bad, maybe a bit too much though. Heavy body with soft carbonation. Quite bitter but a huge maty backbone.

SHIG (3454) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle: Poured orange with whispery white head that swirls around. Sweet sticky hops aroma with nice malt tones fill the nose. Tastes is strong hops that is rugged and abusive, followed by some sweet malts.

Creamy amber color with good earthy fruity nose. Great lacing and creamy head. Taste is so smooth, hoppy but fruity. Great IPA.
