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 from Cornelius. Clear amber body with a thin white head. Light carbonation and lacing. Aroma of mint, grapefruit, papaya, orange and furniture polish. Flavour of tropical fruit and a minty, herbal finish. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Average carbonation. A souped up Dead Pony Club. I just wish BrewDog didn’t filter their beers as much as they do, or embraced bottle conditioning.

aleksander9 (641) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2013
Golden amber with white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus, green grass, caramel, alcohol and soap. Slick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Aftertaste is green grass, alcohol and sitrus peel. Overall: Very good! but, not a beer that stands out.

Borresteijn (5187) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. My first beer as a new daddy. Here’s to you Dex! Could’ve gone for something big, but was too tired ;-) Clear golden amber colour, white head. Aroma of lots of hops, pine, grapefruit, citrus, some resin. Flavour is light to medium-sweet, honey, pine, resin, grapefruit, citrus, hint of grapes, smooth bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied. Nice IPA, resembles the Jack Hammer IPA a lot imho.

Bov (10123) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 23, 2013
from Bier-Bienne - pretty clear dark blond beer under a solid white foam; flowery and piney hoppiness, notes of caramel; tasty and with a good malt backbone, fairly bitter and with long earthy and piney hoppy notes

Bottle. Clear golden pour with white head. Very nice fruity and fresh aroma. Taste is somewhat more discrete. Round, sweet and with just a pinch of Christmas added. Medium bitterness.

mzaar (1915) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2013
Flaska från Kvickly Provestenscentret, Helsingör. Guldfärgad med vitt skum. Doftar tropiska frukter och tallbarr. Smakinslag av tropiska frukter, karamell och kåda. Oljig munkänsla. Fyllig kropp. Medel till stor beska, medelsötma. Detta är ingen julöl i dess vanliga bemärkelse, men det är en öl som jag gärna dricker till julen. En mycket bra IPA. Som jag vill att IPA ska smaka.

thebeertourist (5029) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle (Voodoo Doll). Great refreshing tropical fruits hoppiness in both nose and mouth. Not overly bitter, but manages a punch. ( or a Voodoo Doll pinch). In the end not too scary, though.

StilleStorm (986) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
DWG; Pours hazy golden orange, with medium white head. Nose fills with tropic, citrus, pee and pine. Taste mirrors adding caramell switness and whispers of spice. Medium body, avarage carbonated. Sweet, dry finish. Hoppy Christmas.
