Is the label, a knockoff of Hokusai’s famed woodblock print, “The Great Waves off Kanagawa“, suggesting that our senses will be swept away by this ale’s taste and aroma? Its description:
Leaving behind all those anonymous beers consumed by ordinary people, I wanted better, I deserved better. I surrendered to the taste of top quality malt and was conquered by the citrus aromas of exotic hops. She was the one and I couldn’t hold back any longer.
Whoa… sounds a little too “over-the-top” for my liking. I don’t usually refer to my beers as “She“. Either Google Translate got carried away on them or E.L. James was their copywriter .
I’ll report later whether my palate “surrendered” to the onslaught of tastes and aromas when I open the beers at the “Advent After Party”.
