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.

Bottle. Poured a festive red-gold, with a fluffy if short lived head. Aromas of herbs, caramel and spice. Rather sweet but with a good hop punch. Bitter aftertaste quite moreish. Would not have picked the 7.2. A fine seasonal ale.

From bottle in IPA glass. Amber with decent head and awesome citrus nose from the simcoe. A nice, balanced and clean IPA . To be true to the label, I sampled on both Christmas eve and Christmas day. Hoppy Holidays!

peter48er (185) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2015
330ml bottle from Booths. Pours a lovely golden/reddish hue. White head quickly dissipates. Very reminiscent of American IPAs with outstanding hoppy taste but with hints of spiceiness. A very acceptable version of the style.
