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.

FatPhil (16691) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2012
330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki) Fairly simple sweet exotic fruity hop aroma, some sticky crystal malt mashiness. Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Slightly floury malts, a little sweeter than I’d like, but that does help keep the alcohol in check. Spicy mandarin and orange peel spiciness. Some stale pepperiness in the finish. Arrives quickly , and leaves quite quickly too. Not an unpleasant encounter, but they really need to leave the floury mashiness behind, probably crystal malts.
