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.

Finn (6197) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Flaske 0,33l - Voodoo Doll 6,8% - kjøpt på Vinmonopolet i Brønnøysund og drukket på rom 208 på Elite Plaza Hotel i Örnskjöldsvik 31 Okt 13. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt skum som varer noen minutter. God fruktaroma. Ananas & aprikos. Litt for mye kullsyre. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Får preg av tørket frukt etter hvert med en svakt bitter avslutning.

Marduk (6024) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2012
330ml bottle. Can’t say clear, but clearish golden color. Tiny head, stays. Good lacing. Grapefruit, fresh grass, hops in aroma. Sweet, hops, grapefruit, alcohol in flavor. Beer trying to be something, but it is not what it tries to be.

Countbeer (5985) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle: Batch 229: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized creamy off white foamy head on top of an almost clear orange colored beer. Aromas of hop flowers, resin, pine, apricot, bark, citrus, light spice, malt and a creamy touch. Mostly sticky hop flowers and sticky hop pine/resin/citrus tones. Flavours of resin, pine, pine needles, hop flowers, some citrus, light dry, light spice, nice bitter, sticky herbs, some hints of orange, peach and yeast with a barky edge. Aftertaste is hop flowery with citrus and bitters, light peachy and some herbal malty bitters. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller body and a creamy texture. Not bad but a bit one dimensional yet quite easy as well...

kraddel (5871) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle Pours clear blonde, touch of amber , rather small white head Smell is very intense hops , pine, typical brewdog . Taste is nice hops, some pine again . slightly malt notes . Very good, as usually when you drink a brewdog IIPA / IPA , but they have so many , that I start to fail to taste big differences in between them.. Very good though , just nothing to go out of your way off, when you can get Hardcore so much more easy .

Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013 as Voodoo Doll. Almost clear golden with an off-white head. Quite strong citric aroma with pine and some caramel malt. Flavor is refreshing fruity, pine, some marmalade and rather bitter. Medium body and bitter, fruity aftertaste. Another fine IPA from Brewdog.

The_Osprey (5816) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Dec 2012 Cold bottle on Christmas day. Fizzy with a decent head. Lots of astringent bitterness with a bit of pineapple, but lots more grapefruit. A good pale ale in comparison to others I’ve had. Not very floral, which is good.
