Our Hopinator is a modern day beer super-power, goes off like the 4th of July and is bigger than Texas! In this supersized India Pale Ale we pack in an exceptional amount of American Chinook, Centennial, Citra and Aussie Topaz hops resulting in a brash bitterness that vies for palate dominance over a smooth caramel malt bill.

oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2011
[email protected] In The Moon, Stockholm. Copper colour, small beige head. ARoma is fruits, sweet malts, mild raisins as well as some mild plum and hops. Flavour is rather hoppy with some sweet malts and raisins. Pleasantly balanced. A year or so after BBE, but it’s aged rather beautifully and especially in the flavour the hops are still alive.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of bluebetty. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Very sweet butterscotch aroma with a little citrusy hops. Medium body, very sweet caramel and butterscotch. The aroma hops are faint and even the bitterness is discreet. Poor. 150311
