Keg and bottled, 2013 release
Using the same base 6.7% beer, a baby version of our Hardcore, we slam a mouth puckering 75 IBUs on top of a base of Marris Otter, Crystal Malt and Caramalt before throwing dizzying amounts of hops at these beers.
A pseudo noble hop. Noble like a mother fucking king. But not a boring king. Noble like a chain smoking, pimp of a pinball wizard king. Apparently, they are the best kind.
Hailing from Slovenia, Dana was originally cross bred from the German Hallertau Magnum and native Slovenian varieties. Like any good faux noble hop should it infuses a rustic, musty spiciness into a classic beast of a malt base, just like your grandfathers old school aftershave.
This hop of Eastern European origin is best enjoyed whilst dreaming up a song about a lovely donkey that fell in love with a princess that is destined to take the Eurovision song contest by storm.

Visual: (Cellared for 2 years). Pours orangish brown with suspended sediment, thin hazy layer of micro retention, just a few micro bubbles of activity. Nose: brown sugar toffee malts. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: half-slick, low CO2 Mid-palate: grassy hop oil, bright (lvl-5-sweetness), mango toffee malt Finish: background light sourness-tangy, light pine exhale, lingering medium bitter hops. Summary: Smooth drinkability just like the rest of their single hops. Half grassy, half mango toffee malt character. Pretty good.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle - Slight hazy orange colour, medium white head, good retention and lacing. Strange fruity and herbal hoppy nose with some tropical fruits, mango, pineapple. Taste is bitter, easy malt base with fruity and herbal hoppiness. Medium body, average carbonation, dry hoppy finish. Strange, but not bad.

martjoobolut (3865) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Very fruity and weird single hop brew, but I didnt mind it very much at the time.

33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Hazy orange colour with one finger off-white frothy head. A lot of caramel on the nose and some tropical fruits as well. The flavor is moderately hoppy, theres still a lot of caramel and earthy notes. Alcohol presence, quite unexpected. Medium body, good carbonation. Pretty average.
