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.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottled (batch 320), from Alko Prisma, Vaasa. Amber colour, mediumsized white foamy head that leaves quite a lot of lace. Aroma is rather big time hoppyness (citrus, fruity, floral, grassy and mild acidicness as well) with some slight not too sweet maltyness. Flavour is big time grassy, floral and mildly fruity hops along with some nice maltyness as well. Pleasant sweetish hoppy and malty finish and aftertaste. Rather balanced. An IPA I rather much I like, to my own surprise!
