COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like you’ve never seen it before. And crunching through crisp, sparkling drifts releases billows of pineapple, citrus and papaya with every step. The reign of the snow angel is over. Long live the hop angel where parks and playgrounds become adorned with the outlines of celestial beings that fell to Earth from angry looking emerald clouds. Tune in to breakfast TV to find life’s on hold for 24 hours as this ’hop day’ demands you rocket down a hill on the back of a baking tray. Or simply raise a glass of this festive IPA as we wish you a very hoppy Christmas.

Towey1989 (2826) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle at The Red Lion, Leek (Hydes) Pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine, some pineapple, a little papaya, slight toasted malts and subtle spicy hops. Taste of grapefruit, orange, papaya, some pine, slight pineapple, a little toasted malts and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, slightly piney, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. A simple but well made IPA, tropical fruit and citrus hops with subtle pine and some toasted malts. Not a Christmas beer but good otherwise.

anstei (2247) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 24, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2017 Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours clear amber. Aroma is intensely fruity, tropical, hints of citrus, but mostly pineapple, passion fruit and mango. And some spices. Body is medium, with a slick oily texture over a soft carbonation. Almost chewy, dense. Palate continues what?s offered, some sweetness, but not overpowered. Nice.

Bottle. Gold with a disappearing white head. Pine, grapefruit and tangerine aroma with a hint of bubblegum (not sure what that’s from). Hoppy and oily to taste. Bit of malt to it but mostly those pine and fruit tastes again. Bit of mint? Slightly sweet and rather pleasant.

romanstep (570) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 14, 2017
W nosie średnio intensywnie głównie dojrzała pomarańcza i mandarynka, sporo tu też lasu w postaci żywicy i sosny. Barwa ciemnozłota, klarowne, piana dość niska o średnich ziarnach. W smaku rześkie i wytrawne, z minimalną kontrą słodową, cytrusowe, żywiczne, trochę ananasowe. Goryczka średnia w kierunku niskiej, żywiczna. Dobre. Butelka do 21.10.2017

kaserov (747) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 3, 2017
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (no mucha retención). Carbonatación mínima. Aroma tropical (mezcla de frutas), lupulado. Sabor similar, algo plano, con no demasiado amargor. Está bien, pero se queda en eso.
