COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The arrival of hops to the brewing scene in England in the 1500s led to a moral panic. Hops were condemned as a wicked and pernicious weed, one which would lead to the erosion of social and moral standards. Thank goodness they were right. Heres hoping that our homage to the original pernicious weed continues this gradual decline. Organic Rakau and whole cone Nelson Sauvin go head to head in this strong, golden, hoppy brew. Bitter, yes. Intensely hoppy, absolutely. Too much, never.

Strong, hoppy and powerful. Prepare for an explosion of flavors. The rating wouldve been better if they managed to balance up for all those flavors.

Pours yellow-orange, surprisingly light colour. Medium head with good retention. Aroma is very nice; Citrus, Pine, Orange. Slight alcohol. Taste; malt-profile is very light, which accenuate the hops. It is a perfect plan, and works well. Bitterness balanced backdrop of the fruity (citrus, grape) flavour. This is a delicious brew. One of the best DIPAs Ive had. 8% ? cannot believe it.

erickok (5941) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2017
Spicy, golden malts hot, English fermentation. Medium bitter, spicy, nice and dry, but enough body. Just a bit short on aftertaste for this abv and spice level. Nice brew! (33cl can at Brew Dog Malm)

Zymurgeist2 (2166) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 2, 2017
Tap at Ale Arsenal. Sweet and a bit cloying. Golden-copper with a full white head. Aroma and flavor both included honey. Not too dank for the name.

dwyerpg (6028) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 19, 2017
This was delicious. A pretty strong aroma of both malts and hops - a battle. The flavor is quite hoppy, just the right amount of strong.Quite nice stuff.
