So, let’s state the obvious: the nose on People of the Hop Vol II is very peachy. While that may be mostly a good thing, it’s a little bit intense. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not so intense that it’ll put you off but it is a little bit too much for my olfactory sniffer.
Now, the flavour is interesting. The first impression is that it’s sweet bitter. Very sweet, in fact, almost instantly giving way to a bitter finish. And in the sweetness of POTHV2 peach and grapes rule supreme. Then comes the intense bitter finish of citrus undertones.
And before you know it, the whole experience is over. It’s a bang and gone.
The whole experience is a definitely interesting. I can’t go as far as to say amazing because it’s not. But it’s interesting. POTHV2 is worth a go but you might not be that tempted to line them up for a session.

Strong beer this… but I don’t mean in the tasting…
What I do mean is that this beer is strong in every single department!
The nose is quite simply stunning! It is one peach, grapefruit and grape and just screams DRINK ME NOW!
The mouthfeel is also fantastic, sooooooo soft (I think we probably have Uncle Nelson to thank for this) and soooooo juicy.
And People of the Hop tastes amazing too! A definite sweetness leads the way but that is soon balanced out by good hoppy and bitter hit. This then leads into a soft grape aftertaste . Cracking stuff!
All coming out of an insanely detailed and great looking tin as well as having a really cool name, People of the Hop Vol II is a must try beer.
