COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - JUN 30, 2016
(on tap @ il Locale) Poured at fridge temperature into a teku glass reveals a clear golden body with three fingers of creamy, white head. Good retention. Aroma has the familiar pilsner notes of grassy, noble hops with a hint of biscuit. On the palate this strikes you as a very sessionable beer, clean and very well balanced. The hops here are liquid grass - not intimidating to the novice beer drinker at all - yet quite complimentary to the light biscuit malt ’backbone’. The carbonation is perhaps a little soft compared to many other pilseners but I actually find this allows you to dwell on the other characteristics of the beer better. The body is light and the flavour is well balanced and loyal to the pilsener tradition. I don’t get any barrrel notes from this one, which I wouldn’t expect either but considering that the description says it’s aged in barrels it’s worthwhile checking for. Nicely lingering finish remniscient of the well balanced flavour.
