The “Los Sicarios de Midas” beer is American IPA style, with citrus notes, intense aroma, nuances of particular flavor. Its packaging design is inspired by the packaging of old beers, from the beginning of the last century. Since its concept is based on a millenary history of 1900 and it seemed appropriate to be able to work on vintage design in this type of container.
The design is completely handmade in vintage style, it was 100% handmade.
It is inspired by the Jack London story “The Minions of Midas”, where he details the ruthless mechanism of a society of anarchists, a group of hitmen who demand a considerable sum of money from a tycoon of the time in order to be on the high ground. in a capitalist society that leaves those who have the least.
It is a unique beer as it mixes the strength of a highly hoppy beer with a concept that treats strength as a means to obtain what is intended.
