COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like you’ve never seen it before. And crunching through crisp, sparkling drifts releases billows of pineapple, citrus and papaya with every step. The reign of the snow angel is over. Long live the hop angel where parks and playgrounds become adorned with the outlines of celestial beings that fell to Earth from angry looking emerald clouds. Tune in to breakfast TV to find life’s on hold for 24 hours as this ’hop day’ demands you rocket down a hill on the back of a baking tray. Or simply raise a glass of this festive IPA as we wish you a very hoppy Christmas.

jmgreenuk (4334) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2013
Tap at Brewdog Camden. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head and some broken lace. The aroma is nettle hop with a little wood. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a watery light hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Tastes like a lighter clone of the Interstellar.

CanCrusher (642) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle 0,33L. Clear, orange colour, with small, creamy, light brown head. Strong hoppy aroma of citruses, pineapple, mango and papaya. Taste starts light sweet with all the mentioned fruits and finished heavy bitter. Medium body, dry texture and soft carbonation makes it very drinkable. Very good beer, but for christmas, they should use cinammon too....

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2013
330ml bottle, shared with Stefan@hotel in Riga. Golden body, with particles (or is it the dirty glassware?) and thin layer. Fresh hops, grapefruit and the characteristic whiff of BrewDog brew. Pleasant and round, average duration. Very typical BrewDog, but I like their brews, so...
