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.

pivnizub (10566) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
Bottle: Deep golden, almost not hazy; exotic fruits (mango and so on…) with piney and herbal traces; solid bitter-sweet flavour, quite full bodied; dryishh medical or cough-syrupy finish with a good dash of balancing caramel; but a lingering dry hoppy aftertaste. Classy stuff…

allmyvinyl (10486) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2013
330ml bottle from Brewdog online operations. This is the shit. What Brewdog do best (outside of the sometimes wonderful stouts). Pours clear gold, thin white head. Massive hop aromas- tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, peach, pineapple, amazing. Touch of caramel/biscuit at the back there too. Damn. Good. They should make this all year round.

sebletitje (10048) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, batch# 264, BB 04/06/2015. Dorée-orangée, col fin blanc. Arôme est fruité rappelant l’ananas avec un Simcoe bien présent aux saveurs d’agrumes. Palais reste fort centré sur le houblonnage qui confère à la bière des qualités de notes tropicales et autres agrumes, petite touche épicée avec un profil malté pâle et pils sur un léger caramel. Différent des sempiternelles bières brunes de Noël.
