COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like youve 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 lifes 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.

MarcinG (757) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2016 Butelka330ml. Ciemnomiedziane z pomaranczowym refleksem. Piana biala srednia szybko opada do obreczy. W smaku i zapachu dominuja cytrusy karmel ananasy chmiele lekkie przyprawy w tle. Niezle ABV ktore mile rozgrzewa i nie przeszkadza .Niezla ipa.

Kirkas, tumman kullankeltainen olut hyvin niukalla, olemattomalla vaahdolla. Tuoksu vahva, pasiassa eksoottisen hedelminen. Maku yllttvn makea, karamellimainen. Lisksi hedelm ja varsin niukka katkero. Keskitytelinen IPA, jossa katkeruus omaan makuun juuri sopivalla tasolla, vaikka suosituimmissa tyylilajinsa edustajissa on katkeroa selvsti enemmn. Ei tss kyll joulua ole missn.

johndoughty (5306) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle. Clear bronze appearance with a small head. Lovely hoppy floral flavours with a hint of bitterness. Not really a Christmas beer but still very enjoyable.

Armes de pamplemousse, robe cuivre claire, mousse blanche collant sur les parois du verre. En bouche, les houblons sont trs prsents ds le dbut, mais sans tre overpowering, got trs clair. Trs bonne IPA!

Look: clear orange with strong white head. Aroma us all Simcoe between currant and cat piss. Taste is moderate bitter balanced with caramel sweetness. Pleasant bitter-sweet aftertaste. I like it, however I am not sure that Simcoe singlehop is a very good idea. Anyway this is interesting.
