Hopping Mad uses just one single hop variety, Progress, to achieve its appealing aroma, its pleasingly bitter taste and its delightful sparkle. We believe the result is uniquely enjoyable. So did the judges at the Beauty of Hops Awards, who awarded it a Silver Medal.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 22, 2010
Hazy amber body. Watery texture, light in character - light bittery hops and malt. Soft bittery long aftertaste. Aroma is fruity, caramely, hay, bread/cereal, liquorice. Soft carbonation. I wouldn’t call it Hopping mad because it doesn’t reflect the beer’s character.
