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.

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 .

Barwa pomarańczowa, opalizująca. Piany praktycznie brak, cóż tu więcej pisać. Aromat lekko miodowy, trochę pomarańczowej skórki, wyczuwalna odrobina alkoholu. W smaku jest podobnie, ale kurek z dobrocią został przykręcony i robi się mniej wyraziście, jest słodkawe , słodowo zbożowe. Wysycenie średnie, wytrawne, goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej z iglasto owocowym finiszem.

willisread (1299) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear honey, gold with a half-finger white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Very NZ hop nose with some mango, pineapple an light citrus present. As it warms clove honey comes out. Medium to light-medium body with soft carbonation. Very British in that sense. Sweet with some tropical fruit on the finish. Not bad.

Lonick (1029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle @home. Pours light amber, nice white head but then that dissipates quite quickly. Nose is hoppy, slight cheese, fruit, mango, a touch of toffee. Taste is bitter, dry, toffee, its what you would imagine from the smell but without the fruit its very dry.

Kosmokrator (668) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
IPA profumata e fresca, luppolata alla grande ma non amarissima. Sentori fruttati, quasi canditi, le danno un tocco particolare.
