After yesterday’s mess I opened this over the sink.
Intergalactic Space Hopper from Hardknott at 5.2%. The label boasts “Hoppy enough to bounce you off planets”. Hang on a moment… Hardknott, I remember that name and the claim on their bottle from the 7th! Thankfully this is better than the last one. Look at the head in the photo. It didn’t disappear quickly either. The smell sure seems hoppy. What I wasn’t expecting was the taste. Tart, sharp, sour all at once and in quite a large volume. So much that I didn’t notice if it tasted of anything. This does drop over the course of the beer, leaving a noticable hoppy taste. It’s also one of the few beers I’ve had so far that I have noticed a real after taste and thats where the sourness comes back. Also, it is quite carbonatated as well. Overall, during the course of drinking, i’ve warmed up to this one and would quite happily have some more.
High levels of hopps and carbonation, I don’t think this is one for you Scott!
