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.

Finn (6824) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Flaske 0,33l - Voodoo Doll 6,8% - kjpt p Vinmonopolet i Brnnysund og drukket p rom 208 p Elite Plaza Hotel i rnskjldsvik 31 Okt 13. Gyldenbrun. Middels hyt skum som varer noen minutter. God fruktaroma. Ananas & aprikos. Litt for mye kullsyre. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Fr preg av trket frukt etter hvert med en svakt bitter avslutning.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Majorstuen. Glowing amber. Fruit punch, grass, pine. Very fresh, unresistable. Light body, loads of peaches and pineapple. Then a fine dry finish creeps in.

Draught @ OlutExpo 2013

Pours clear yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of stingy fruity hops, citrus, crisp maltiness and lemon. Taste is stingy fruity with hints of crisp maltiness and lemon. Finish is stingy and fruity with hints of crisp maltiness. Okay, but quite untypical for a single hop Simcoe IPA.

olsvammel (6606) - rebro, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle through the BD shop. Fresh fruity hoppy aroma with some reshly cut grass and "green hops" bordering on dill. The hop aroma is held back in the taste, hop resin finish with a fairly thick body and mellow bitterness. Decent IPA, it feels very much lika BrewDog beer.

Aromas of hop flowers, resin, pine, apricot, bark, citrus, light spice, malt and a creamy touch. Mostly sticky hop flowers and sticky hop pine/resin/citrus tones. Flavours of resin, pine, pine needles, hop flowers, some citrus, light dry, light spice, nice bitter, sticky herbs, some hints of orange, peach and yeast with a barky edge.
