COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There is something really intriguing about a beer that is light in color, yet still infused with huge aroma and flavor, isnt there? It deceives the senses in a pleasant, yet completely surprising way; tasting great beer tends to be like that. So much of what we "expect" to taste, influences our opinion even before we actually do the tasting. Today, we ask that you set any preconceived notions aside so that you can take in the unexpected. A simple grain bill of pils, light crystal, and a bit of wheat, combined with a vigorous hop dosing of Mosaic and Simcoe make this beer just bookoo enough. Just dont call it "too bookoo!"

Saeglopur (2113) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 28, 2017
355 ml can from Beergium, canned 12/13/16.
Amber, clear body, with a medium, fluffy, lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, lots of tropical fruits, flowers, some orange, some grass.
Tastes similar, with some more biscuit.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, medium dry, a bit sweet, fruity, piney, a bit malty.

Tasty. Very smooth and balanced throughout, with the right levels of tropical fruitiness, crisp pine and grapefruit bitterness. Classic, very quaffable example of a West Coast IPA.

DavyK (84) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Can from Hippo. Fresh, grapefruit and pine aromas bit its a lot less resinous than many of its Californian counterparts. Fantastic fizz and vibrancy. Bit of lemon and pine, long lasting but refreshing final stage. I absolutely think this is one of the best West Coast IPAs there is. Certainly one of the best of the West Coast ones we can easily get hold of in Scotland!

Can from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Beer served in 7C, Duvel Glass. Pours opalescent golden with nice big head. Aroma of mango, tangerine, papaya, exotic fruits, tropical plants oils, citrus, resin. Taste is very tropical, slightly creamy and refreshing with fruity and oily notes of melons, mango, maracuja, citrus and pine. Flavor is hoppy, filled with typical Simcoe and Mosaic aromas, but at the same time not too bitter, balanced with a sweet malty, biscuit base.

TeijoA (65) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2017
33 cl can, canned 13/12/2016. Clear, peachey colour, fairly small but lasting head. Piney, citric aroma. Slightly soapy flavor, but good citrus fruit up front, quite nice caramel in the middle and finishes with some long but moderate bitterness. Good altogether, if not spectacular.
