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.

Hazy orange with a big white head. Fresh hoppy aroma of orange, peach and pine. Dry and hoppy flavour with a bit of fruity sweetness, but quickly turning into delicious hop bitterness

Rune (12344) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 330ml bottle, as Voodoo Doll, 6.8 % abv, bought at Vinmonopolet Sentrum Troms. The body is almost clear and has got a dark golden colour. Slightly off-white head that stays and laces well. Fresh smell of grapefruit and pine. Smooth taste profile of herbs, peach, lemon and grapefruit accomplished by soft, malty sweetness. Rounded bittersweet finish. Very smooth on the swallow. A good, session-like, IPA (Troms 17.11.2013).

mR_fr0g (11623) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Amber / dark orange with a thin off white head. Exoctic fruit aromas, little bit of sweetness as well. Hop bitterness is biting, but mellows a lot when it warms up slightly. Malt and hop are well balanced. Medium body and slightly chewy / resinous.
