COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The arrival of hops to the brewing scene in England in the 1500’s 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. Here’s 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.

4.1
cobaink2 (847) - seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 22oz from Tavour. So many good things coming out of this. Melon, peach and apricots. The body has a bit of buscuit and cracker flavors but quite thick. Seems a bit more abv than the 8 percent listed.

3.5
RuneStumo (2734) - Haugesund, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2017
25.12.2017. 0,65l Bottle. Vinmonopolet Oasen. Orange colour with a thin white head. Unclear. Citrus aroma. Sharp with looots of hops. Sharp beer with very good strength and with a very rich body. More hops than malt and lots of alcohol. Texture is kind of oily. Notes of fresh wood, pine and green birch leaves. Bitter sharp ending.

BlackHaddock (7971) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2017
15th Dec 2017, five beers on draft from this brewery at the Stadium Brewing Company, Aliso Viejo, California, I had all five. Misty amber body, white head. Tropical fruits rule the roost here with a heavy hop presence giving a decent bitter taste and aftertaste.

[email protected]�t, nyk�ping. Hazy amber color with lacing off-white head. Aroma has tropical fruits, citrus, malt, caramel. Taste is malty with long bitter aftertaste. Flavors of pine, needles, tropical fruits. Not so fresh one.
