COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Du tror måske, at denne juleøl er en juleøl. Men faktisk er det noget så ujulet som en klassisk Imperial IPA på 10%. Bitter som et nederlag og generøst frugtig som sønnikes første grød. Så er du i virkeligheden kun til sukkersøde øltyper, er denne ikke-juleøl vist ikke noget for dig. PS Bør drikkes året rundt.
Ingredienser: vand, malt, humle, gær og ønsker om en god jul!

Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2011
Bottle at CPK, thanks to Ken. Hazy amber pour with a foamy, white head. Huge resin aroma, grapefruit. Flavor is very sweet, lots of caramel and honey, bit of bread, tons of hops, like fruity citrus rinds. Full in body with average carbonation. Warming finish, tons of bitterness, fruity and piney. The real deal here.

JorisPPattyn (7815) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2011 Fluffy yellowish head, hazy amber beer. Rosewater, sweet-hoppy smelling, lunaria, estery. Bitter-sweet with banana, citrus, lytchee and rosewater. Very good balance. Medium to well-bodied, but with a very filling impression and slickness. Aftertaste is really bitter. A DIPA with a difference? Whatever, I like it.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - FEB 26, 2011
It seemed a very strong IPA to me. Not a simple double IPA. Complex enough, caramel, malt with a dark red colour and a not persistent froth. It has a fruity and an extremely hoppy aroma. Dry finish and bitter. Good product!

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle... Lightly hazed, beautiful, deep orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Musky, peppery, grapefruit rind bouquet with undertones of toffee and caramel. Uber full-bodied with a heavy cream mouthfeel and snazzy carbonation. Flavor-wise, this beer is huge. Mammoth hop bitterness overwhelms a malt backbone that is no lightweight. Bitter finish with a pinch of salt. This beer is so close to being Dreadnaught; yet so far from being Dreadnaught because the hops selected are not nearly as fun or palatable. Still, a damn solid brew shipped to me all the way from Denmark by Plovmand! Thanks, Thomas.

fonefan (34282) - VestJylland, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2011

Bottle 500ml.

Light unclear medium to dark orange color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to light light heavy malty, heavy hoppy, pine, citrus. Flavor is heavy to moderate sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Scopey (6315) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2011
Bottle at Cask Pub and Kitchen thanks to madmitch76. Pours a cloudy orange-amber colour with an off-white head. The nose is pretty subtle, some pine, creamy, varnish, fruitiness. The taste is really smooth with soft carbonation, orange peel, grapefruit and peach come through with pine and varnish. It’s hard to believe this is 10% as it drinks so easily.

Bottle shared with Mes&Sim, Leighton and Scopey at the CP&K. Cheers! Hazy amber beer, tidy off white head. Light hop nose. Light softish palate, very soft. Tiny bit of aniseed in the background, otherwise hides the 10.0% very well. Deep rich orange and orange marmalade hops. Some creamy malt supporting. Very very drinkable. Really like this style of delivering tasty but not over bitter hops in a soft palate.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear and light copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with pine, grapefruit and flowers. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is bitterness. Overall a really good beer.

mjs (4498) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2011
(Bottle, 0.5 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured mahogany coloured and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, strawberries, pine, sweetness and malts. Palate was quite full bodied, warming and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, fruitiness, hops, resin and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. Not bad at all. Sweetness wasn’t too strong and hoppiness was quite in line with the other flavours. Nice.
