Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, frothy white head. Smells of grapefruit, zests, spices and grapes. Moderate sweet, tastes like a dozen other brewdog IPA’s and DIPA’s. Medium bitter finish, resins and green tea. Not a very good showoff of how good simcoe can be as Single hop, but not a bad beer either

Keg at Brewdog Camden. Amber / dark orange with a thin off white head. Exoctic fruit aromas, little bit of sweetness as well. Hop bitterness is biting, but mellows a lot when it warms up slightly. Malt and hop are well balanced. Medium body and slightly chewy / resinous.

[Keg at Brewdog Camden] Bit out of season serving a Christmas beer in mid-January, but I guess Brewdog have never felt bound by convention. Golden-amber, moderate off-white head. Excellent rich mouthfeel - a better malt base than your average IPA. Big hit of grapefruit, followed by a bigger hit of pine that verged on bog cleaner. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Apart from the great mouthfeel, this did feel a bit of a paint-by numbers IPA. And there’s nothing Christmassy about it!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A couple of 33 cl. bottles at Christmas "lunch". Hazy orange colour with a small, off-white head. Fruity aroma with peaches, citrus and sweet, exotic fruits and pines. Very hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a oily texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with exotic fruits and pines. Very hoppy IPA. I was able to track this one in a discounter at a very fair price which increases the "Overall" score.

Tämä Brewdogin jouluolut kaatuu lasiin kuparin värisenä ja kirkkaana muodostaen valkoista vaahtoa. Tuoksussa on pihkaa, eksoottista hedelmäisyyttä ja mausteita. Maku on katkera, pihkainen, hedelmäinen ja mausteinen. Jättää katkeran ja kuivan jälkimaun. Melko runsaan hiilihappoinen ja kohtalaisen kevyt olut. Parempia tyylilajin edustajia on maailma pullollaan. Ei tämä silti huonoa ole.

Tap@bdsthlm. Coppery slight hazy. Really fruity, fruit desserty. Mangos, pineapple juice, tangerines. Feels actually quite fanta- like at times, for those who know that pop. Bitter super fruity body. Not much malts, only fruity hops in flavour. A very soda like beer. Nice to try, but I dont think I could do a session with it.

Bottle. Copper amber, clear. Nose is loaded with hoppy grapefruit and pine, some tropicality/florals, caramel, malts. A bit of butterscotch and butter and.. honey? Body is slick, medium light. Good soft bitterness. I’m wondering where’s the xmas in here? Seems like a fresh hoppy ipa to me.
