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.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, 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

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear orange-golden colour, mid-sized white head. Lovely aroma of citrus fruit. Full-bodied, malty and sweet start, immediately blended with loads of delicious citrusy hops. Very fresh and fruity.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - 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.

Camons (8414) - Hasselager, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle @ Home. Pours golden with a large white head. Aroma of malt, little bread, rich fruity hops, peach, mango, some citrus. Flavor of malt, fruity hops, mango, grapes, citrus, grapefruit, pine. Medium body, average carbonation. + points for being dirt cheap in Danish supermarkets. 171113

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
Bouteille 33cl, batch# 264, BB 04/06/2015. Dorée-orangée, col fin blanc. Arôme est fruité rappelant l’ananas avec un Simcoe bien présent aux saveurs d’agrumes. Palais reste fort centré sur le houblonnage qui confère à la bière des qualités de notes tropicales et autres agrumes, petite touche épicée avec un profil malté pâle et pils sur un léger caramel. Différent des sempiternelles bières brunes de Noël.

kermis (8084) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2013
Draft at Brewdog Camden. Pours dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of piney resinous hops and orange peel. Flavour is light sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Another pleasant hop bomb.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing white fluffy head. Clear amber body. Peach kiwi powerful and lovely aroma. Peach dominated flavor with grapefruit notes combined with a nice dry hops bitterness that stays long in the finish. High carbonation.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
12 pack. Orange amber with a low white head. None of that peachy sweet US bollocks here; crisp hairy chlorophyll, curry leaf, dry rasping pine and tropical Starburst. Corking tropical aroma wafting with blackcurrant, lychee, guava and dried curry leaf. Classic Christmas sessions. BrewDog bang back on form, doing what they do best with aplomb. Delicious.
