Extra Hop® is produced once or twice a year, usually in the spring.
It is a German Pilsener produced by way of decoction, lighter than Tipopils (4.8 against 5.2% alcohol by volume), with 11 Plato degrees. It is drier, more bitter and fragrant. Since it is matured in barrels, it has all the time and ideal conditions for perfect decantation of the yeast, and is therefore quite limpid. People who are used to Tipopils will think much has been lost with the yeast. Extra Hop® does not have the typical thickness of unfiltered, yeasty beers. Nevertheless, it offers a lot to people willing to take the time to become more familiar with it. Like other Pilseners, it is a simple beer that is evaluated according to just a few characteristics: bitterness, body (a hint of malt), hoppy aroma (quantity, quality and persistence) and, most importantly, the harmony between these three factors.

gramix79 (4) - BELLAGIO, ITALY - AUG 10, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 Provata alla spina presso il ’Tiglio Pub’ a Bellagio, molto in forma, quasi a livello della sorella tipopils.. non sempre l’ho trovata così perfetta.. Schiuma persistente giallo paglierino, abbastanza velato.. Al naso note erbacee classiche da pils.. in bocca un sorso tira l’altro con una partenza leggermente maltata che lascia spazio al luppolo nel finale deciso e secco.. 3 sorsi ed è finita .. spero di ritrovarla sempre così!
