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.

Thx! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Blond Christmas beers seem to be all the rage / the hip thing to do these days. Orange, little white head. Nose is sweetish sticky pine resin, peel, touch caramel malts. Taste is touch metallic, bitter orange, tad caramel base. Med. Body. Okay. Bottled on 01/10/2014.

JorisPPattyn (8648) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2015
Medium, just off-white head, over hazy yellow-orange beer. Oxydized hops, dull spices, rosewater. Oxydation, grainy; sweet grapefruit, if that makes any sense. Rather well-bodied, quite slick, well-carbonated. Aftertaste has sweet cookies, sweet dough. Strange - somehow totally different from what I might have expected.

alexanderj (3429) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle; poured an orange amber color with a smallish head. Aroma was pungent; simcoe really shines through. Piney, funky resin; touch of caramel and fruit. Flavor really grew in the finish. Flavor kept creeping in. Piney and earthy fruit. Touch of sugar, but only hint of sweetness. Nice mouthfeel with a bit of tingling. Quality brew

bastarda (239) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2015
shared by Chris. Orange, pine and pineapple aromas. Orange again in its full-flavoured taste, orange zest, orange marmelade, citrus fruit bitterness, well balancing out the marmelade. Well done!

mighty_meadow (304) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Pours dark orange with thin white head. Burst of citrus hops on opening. Taste is very much orange peel, lemon and lime tempered with biscuity malt. Very nice and easy to drink for it’s 7.2%

mkel07 (4402) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 010115. This is a big full flavoured hoppy beer. Deep orange with a big head, plenty of passionfruit and a touch of melon also. Nott a beer for the beginner.

Dunkles Bernstein. Wenig Schaum. Tolles Wechselspiel aus Bitterkeit und Frucht. Grapefruit und andere Zitrusfrüchte. Ein schön gemachtes IPA nicht nur für Weihnachten.
