Background and objectives

Modelled after Kissmeyer Eagle Kiss and with the same bitterness. The biggest difference lies in the hopping balance; the traditional bitterness of Eagle Kiss is partially replaced in this beer with the NEIPA focusing on intense hop aroma and taste, with a subtle fruity hint from the moderate addition of rose hip- and sea buckthorn oil.

Intense, fruit-hop fragrance, supported by a touch of malt and the faintest trace of Nordic fruitiness.

Very drinkable, with low experienced bitterness and creamy feel in the mouth; reasonable head with medium durability.
