AG#42 – ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha

Gyle #42.

Also a beer made for Zoya’s First Birthday Party. Instructions were blonde, zesty, not too bitter, and using the killer Citrillo hop, with a touch of Galaxy. May or may not rival the Pan-Galactic Gargleblaster for the best drink in the Galaxy. Should leave hoopy froods knowing where their towel is.
