Short of the day - Hop it to the top (?)


(double IPA)

Ouroboros (France)

Sometimes people criticize craft beers saying „The only thing you can is to put tons of hops a beer. That’s the only art you know.”
Well, would this be true, this IPA2 (I will assume that should mean double) would be probably one of the best in the world. Hopped with Warrior, Rakau, Centennial and Mozaic, simply must be brilliant. But…
It is not.
Sure, its heavy and bitter, strong alcohol and overall decently balanced. The problem is that the aromas from hops were lost on the way.
Given 4 types of hops used I would consider Hvergelmir as almost flat.  
In fact, I tend to count this as achievement – loose aroma from so many hops! Priceless!
