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.

Bottle Pours clear blonde, touch of amber , rather small white head Smell is very intense hops , pine, typical brewdog . Taste is nice hops, some pine again . slightly malt notes . Very good, as usually when you drink a brewdog IIPA / IPA , but they have so many , that I start to fail to taste big differences in between them.. Very good though , just nothing to go out of your way off, when you can get Hardcore so much more easy .

worldbeertaste (1546) - AUSTRIA - FEB 23, 2014
Medium orange with a light tint and a thin, disappearing, lacy, creamy, head. Smells of grapefruit, mandarin, citrus, pine and some alcohol notes. Flowers and caramel. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Dry sweet toasted malt, caramel pine with a flowery, citrus, ripe fruit grass citrus bitter finish. A IPA similar to many other Brewdog IPAs. Decent IPA

Kita (858) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear amber color with small frothy off-white head, poor lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, pineapple and pine. Taste starts refreshing fruity with rich caramel malty backbone and heavily hopped finish and long aftertaste. Full body, thick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Perfect christmas gift...

zenkis (497) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours pale orange with medium lasing and top. On nose it comes pleasant fruity, spruce, sweet and hoppy, and some notes of herbs or spices reminding kumin a bit. To me this tone is something new, could be kind of rare herbs or berries. Pleasant combination in aroma, sweet overall. Taste is deep sweet and light balanced bitter, a bit reminds IIPA, but only by pattern. Medium+ body, astringent a bit mouthfeel, quite thick texture, not long lasting finish, not bitter dry. Pleasant pale ale with aroma as dominant and best aspect.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Flaske 0,33l - Voodoo Doll 6,8% - kjøpt på Vinmonopolet i Brønnøysund og drukket på rom 208 på Elite Plaza Hotel i Örnskjöldsvik 31 Okt 13. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum som varer noen minutter. God fruktaroma. Ananas & aprikos. Litt for mye kullsyre. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Får preg av tørket frukt etter hvert med en svakt bitter avslutning.

Not a typical Christmas beer - which may explain why I like this beer so much. Fine balance while still very hoppy. Another great beer from BrewDog ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Un grand moment d’amertume dans le bon sens du terme : un nez de houblon et d’agrumes phénoménal, des saveurs et une longueur en bouche à la hauteur. 66 IBU, ça se mérite !

Pours a clear orange with little head. Nose is pine and citrus. Strong orangey taste with a dry bitter finish. Very nice beer, alcohol is well hidden.
