COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: The Grinch er modsvaret på alt det overdrevne stærke, søde og krydrede jule øl og afslører julens sande karakter. The Grinch er en lys, tør IIPA på 7,2 %. Den er bitter, den er grøn og den foragter alt hvad der forbindes med en glansbillede jul med “et barn er født i Betlehem” og kaneture gennem skoven.

stefannilssons (1455) - SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2012
Det här var en mycket god öl som kan beskrivas med ett ord, humle. Smaken är då givetvis också humlig emn även mjuk och välbalanserad. Slutsats: humle.

dnoaksson (653) - , SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2010
Framträdande beska som dominerar och går som en mur kring upplevelsen. Allt är väldigt tydligt definierat, kanterna hårda. Överväldigande på sätt och vis, lätt att bli utmattad av större mängder.

gnoff (7687) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2010
Draught at The Rover, Göteborg. On December 19, 2010
Hazy copper color, fluffy lasting off-white head. Cheese hoppy scent. Sweet, malty, hoppy, bitter taste. Long lingering dry bitter aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness.
Ratehr nice at first, but the lack of residual sweetness and the high dry bitterness makes it hard for me to drink more than a small glass.

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2010
(Draught) Pours dark hazy copper amber with a creamy, near white head. The aroma is citric and tropical fruity up front with milder notes of pine in the background. Toasted and light caramelly malt. Green and dry-hopped on the nose. Rather simple aroma. The flavor is light sweet, heavily bitter and light acidic. Lots of citrus, pine and resin alongside white bread, light caramel and some fruitiness. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy at first, yet astringent from the hops with light to medium carbonation. Lingering mega bitter finish of virus and resin. Medium bodied.

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2010
Draft. A hazy dark golden beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of hops and malt as well as lighter notes of spices and fruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of hops combined with medium notes of caramel and fruits, leading to a very bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a bit sticky - like hop soup.

fonefan (34434) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2010

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade 8BC, kld., DK-1655 Copenhagen, Denmark.

Hazy medium orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, light heavy hoppy, flowers, grapefruit, orange - citrus. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and heavy bitter with a long long duration, peel bitter, hop oli notes, dry dry. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice IIPA that is hoppy and dry and not hoppy and sweet, good work ;O) [20101111]

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
On tap. Pours an opaque amber with an off-white head. Intense citrus and pine in the nose. Medium body, lightly sweet fruitiness but the sweetness is quickly overpowered by the fat and intense hop bitterness. A bit much perhaps. 131110

From a special tap at Nørrebro Bryghus - thanks Søren! Aroma is sharp hoppy and pinewood to light mango. Bitter and bonedry. Pinewood and mild mango. Dry wooden. Astringent touch in the finish. Aromatic fruity, mango and oranges into the far finish fromback of the nose. Providing an overall sweet fruity impression.
