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.

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.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a mid-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Fruity and slightly floral hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, grapefruit and tangerine. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a crisp carbonation. Dry-ed malt-character with a tinge of cough syrup and loads of hops, including fruity and exotic accents, also a lighter resiny touch; dry fruity and resiny hoppy finish with a mildly malty backbone in the aftertaste. Very more-ish brew. 19.I.14

MarkoNm (534) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours a ruby/orange color, clear, with about a finger of just slightly off-white head. The aroma is gentle, but very pleasantly fruity and sweet. The taste is strong and filling, but not too bitter as it often happens. There is perhaps also some metallic feel to it at times. Another nice beer from BrewDog.

jan23778 (101) - SPAIN - JAN 27, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Pours a clear amber with a slightly off white head. Amazing huge hit of mango and further tropical fruits in the background. Sweet taste with more tropical fruit and hints of sweet malt. Light body but very drinkable and does not taste or feel anywhere near its 7% alcohol content. Dangerous, but in a good way!!

jonnyguns (909) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep golden with a small white head. Nose has mango, citrus and pine. Even a touch of grassy hops. Taste is quite resinous with grassy citrus hops shining through. Sweet malts add to the finish. Dry bitter finish. Nice juicy mouthfeel. Pretty decent stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pleasant hoppy aroma. Sweetness of the malts and bitterness of the hops are well balanced. Pleasant IPA.
