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.

Hoppla, where does the honey come from? No matter, it’s a nice balace to the explicit hop character of this beer. Expecially when first hitting you tongue, you’ll tase some sort of a sweet syrup taste, very uncommon, but well in line with christmas. The hops, that explode in your nose are much less aggrssive in your mouth. Still it’s a very bitter beer, and people that do not like hops shouldn’t try this one. For all the others, it’s a nice brew with an interesting sweet note and a typical brewdog finish: dryyyyyyyyyy... It’s hoppy, but isn’t christmas also the season of all those delicious sweets? It is! And that’s why Brewdog gave this seasonal Pale Ala a sweet note which is quite uncommon but very nice.

KenOath (8) - Surry Hills, AUSTRALIA - DEC 13, 2014 does not count
Tropical fruity, citrus nose. Good malt sweetness up front, with a well balanced mid palate. Decent hop character with some late emerging bitterness. Some soapiness on the aftertaste (not too unpleasant), mostly stone-fruit, citrussy finish.

Gary (1543) - west London and, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2014
Bottled;God damn vibrant nose ..grass -fat hops-giving birth to oranges .. Poured out looking like any other IPA ive ever seen. Too rich to agree with my palate ..hops are sappy and not floral.

Aroma has grapefruit, pineapple and passion fruit. Pours amber with thin head that leaves some lacing. Taste has a perfect balance between heavy bitterness from hops and medium sweetness from malts. Medium body supports the beer well. Soft to medium carbonation and long bitter finish. Overall an excellent IPA.
