Cloudy pale yellow beer with small white head, leaves nice lacing.
Aroma is fresh hoppy, tropical fruity, slightly citrussy. Juicy melon, pineapple and bittersweet lime peel in first nose. More bitter and resinous notes in background.
First taste is tropical fruity, bittersweet - citrus peels, pineapple, whitecurrant .Tropical bittersweet fruitiness in aftertaste.
Beer is surprisingly full-bodied in spite of low ABV. Well balanced tropical hoppy flavours make it really good thirst quencher, but it suits perfectly aswell with different seafood. It’s worth to try Damage Report with pan-fried tiger prawns with ginger and chili.
“Oh, you think dryness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dry; I was born in it, molded by it.”
Meerkats know dry. They are born and live their entire lives in the desert. So we listened to them. Bone dry, sure, but maybe we give the malt a fleeting chance to show it’s sweet side. Fruity? Bring it on! Amarillo and Citra hops will provide you with plenty. Infinitely quaffable? Yes, please.
Experience: Effervescent hop champagne is filling the glass with bright white and high fluffy head. Light golden beer is crystal clear.
The aroma reminds classical west-coast IPA’s, mango, citrus, tropical fruits, and pine resin. Malts add a fleeting thought of honey cracker.
The sip is fragile and fleeting. Everything that was promised in the aroma is well present. The hint of malty sweetness is nicely balanced with mild hop bitterness. But it’s light, very light. In a way, that’s why dry IPA exists. Your quaffable and refreshing summer beer.
Maybe this sunrise arrived unexpectedly because you have been having a good time with friends around the small bonfire at the beach. Perhaps it’s your own private spot where you can fish undisturbed, alone with your thoughts.
Maybe you just woke early to enjoy the sound of the forest waking up and have a refreshing skinny-dip. It’s your secret place to enjoy the sunrise.
“Sunrise at the secret beach” is hoppy and juicy IPA meant to be enjoyed in summer.
Experience: Once poured out, you will be greeted by a hazy golden beer with a bright white head inviting you to take a sip. In the aroma, there is mango and banana mixed with the fresh ambiance of the early morning pine forest.
In the juicy middle, the subtle malt forms a base for bittersweet citrus and tropical flavors from generous dry-hopping.
In the end, the hops remind you in a polite but firm way that despite all the juiciness it is still an IPA and restrained hop bitterness will stay on the edge of your tongue for long.
According to the legend, a local hero, called Pkharmat, brought fire from the gods on top of the Kazbek Mountain and gave it to the humans thus starting the nahi people. Pkharmat himself didn’t have much luck. The evil god Sela chased him down, chained to the Kazbek Mountain and every morning Ida the falcon comes to feast on his liver.
In addition to the fire, wild hops that are one of the ancestors to Kazbek hops, originate from the Caucasus. So now has it come with its lemon balm, mint and ripe papaya aromas to bring fire to the cold and plain world of the American hops. The Master Brewer has managed to stay on good terms with the falcons.
India Pale Ale is one great traveller. This strong, hoppy beer was exported from England to India in the 18th century. Over time, exports decreased and, by the middle of the last century, this extraordinary beer style was in decline. In the 1980s, however, IPA was revived by American craft brewers and was reborn stronger, hoppier and is now more popular than ever. Rumours about this magnificent beer also made it to Europe and so the prodigal son made it back home.
Now, a piece of this crazy hoppy-history has reached you. This gold beer celebrates a wild party of Simcoe, Amarillo and Columbus hops, so there is little room for anything else.
Who does not like hops? One decent bomb of hops draws a beer friend as valerian draws a cat.
For a dose of hops, an expert turns its eyes to IPA or India Pale Ale. It is beer style, where the phrase “too much hops” does not exist. Unfortunately, IPA foresees a decent amount of alcohol, 7% or 8% and more. However, a strong beer is not suitable in every situation. An alcohol remains alcohol and smart beer friend handles it carefully.
What about one IPA being insanely hopped with a little bit of alcohol? That is what Little India is. A small beer with plenty of Columbus,Amarilloand Simcoe hops in it.
