De Ranke XX Bitter

I can't think of anything to say about this brewery; other than the fact that everything they make is awesome.

De Ranke XX Bitter = 7/10
Ratebeer 3.66 97th  percentile
Beer Advocate 92nd

Right from the cap-pry, this stuff emits a massive amount of citrus, lemon tang and spicy floral notes. Up front, a massive blast of citrus and lemon hops hits you only to grow into a floral and spicy ending. There was a bit of grass in that mix also. Malts.. bah who needs 'em. Even the afterglow is all tangy lemons and spices. Not to be insulting but it reminded me of a Blue or Canadian turned up to 11. A true hophead delight
