Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: kbub6f on 03-29-2005

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Brewed exclusively with an enormous, almost reckless, amount of first harvest noble hops - Hallertau Mittelfrueh from Germany. 110 IBUs. The "murkiness" is from hop particles, which are literally in suspension and create a permanent haze. It's part of the overall experience, and was intended.
