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.

Blastomorpha (150) - - DEC 16, 2017
Nice amber with a snow white fluffy head. Aroma is quite citrusy, malty, but no trace of particular spices. Taste is bittersweet, lots of hops expecially in the finish, but once again, nothing like ginger or cinnamon in mouth. Nice, but didn't get the Christmas after the Hoppy.

dunklermessias (385) - GERMANY - DEC 14, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours wit a clear, dark golden color and a nice white head. Fruity nose of pineapple and tropical fruits with some citric notes. Nice hoppy taste, well balanced tropical fruit and an intense hoppy finish. Good Stuff!

aleanguz91 (177) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - DEC 12, 2017
Acquistata @L'ArtigianoInFiera2017 in Milano. Oro con riflessi ramati. Schiuma bianca, pannosa, con molte bollicine e mediamente persistente. Al naso un bel profumo di frutti tropicali (papaya, mango e ananas su tutti), arancia rossa, litchi, con sentori lievemente speziati. In bocca è dolciastra, ancora note di frutti tropicali e frutta candita con l'amarognolo agrumato e caramellato. I sentori erbacei e amari del luppolo Simcoe non sono troppo aggressivi. Finale secco e pulito. Media carbonazione. Ottima beverinitá. Un'ottima ipa con un tocco natalizio.
