COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We craft this much like a sculptor who uses only a hammer and chisel to shape stone into a masterpiece. Hoppe is spawned of these few essentials: barley, wheat, hops, yeast and water. This limited palette is an exercise in minimalism, with refined elements which are deliberately selected. This simple combination creates a golden shimmering brew infused with delicate aromas. The artful nature of this beer is exposed with the first taste. As the malt and hops created a composition of flavors, and elegant finish leaves an impression that your tastes will not soon forget. Don’t be deceived by th innocence of Hoppe. Please enjoy in moderation.

omhper (19230) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2007
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear pale amber, minimal head. Strong lychee-like hop aroma. Sweet and full bodied with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Thick and dominated by soapy, perfumy, juicy citric hops. Punishing almost inky bitterness. Lots of flavours, but more rough than harmonious or complex.

Hazy gold beer, small white head. Smooth and silky - lots of hops but refined and well mannered! Smooth grapefruit and some orange marmalade. Tasty but not that bitter, just a little bitterness in the aftertaste. Very smooth drinking.

It pours a cloudy golden color with medium sized head. Nice aroma of brewing malts. The body is quite strong, there is a good malt and toffee flavor, strong bitterness, but also an evident astringency given by some extra yeast. Most of the hop qualities are lost, it’s nevertheless a bold brew.

2007-05-08, draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 9-4-8-4-18=43
Blond color. Huge hoppy aroma, sweet flowery green and resiny. Very good body strength, full malty, sweet, extremely hopped with a lot of resins. Extreme American Pale Ale, relly enjoyable.
