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!

Hazy orange with a big off-white head. Aroma is fruity and extremely hoppy - grapefruit and peach. Flavor is rather sweet and very bitter. Finish is dry, very bitter and warming alcohol. 130211

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - FEB 9, 2011
Sleightly hazy orange with a huge white head. Its a classic imp ipa and a good version of it. Flowers and mandarine aroma reminding me of simcoe. High bitterness in the flavor with a nice malty caramel undertone. Bitter finish

UPDATED: APR 18, 2014 Bottle included in a box from the man himself, FrumptyDumpty. I was nervous about this one due to freshness concerns, between being sent overseas and a bottling date I was uncertain about. But the nose shows good signs, rich in tropical fruitiness and light notes of sweet caramels. Some melon sweetness on the front of the tongue. Medium-full body. Finish is lashing bitterness, grapefruit pith. One of the best things this beer does is look like a fucking IPA. Right color, nice amount of lacing. Good job, although I wish the finish were a bit less harsh.

Camons (5901) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2011
Tap @ Fairbar. Pours hazy dark brown with a small white head. Big aroma of hops, pine, grapefruit and bitter orange. Taste is hops like in aroma, with sweeter fruity ones aswell, kiwi, melon and abit of caramel malt, alcohol is very well hidden. Medium body, soft carbonation, very long bitter finish. Nice brew all around. 040211

larsga (6185) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2011
Medium shiny beige head. Hazy amber body with light carbonation. Fruity mealy peachy aroma with wooden resiny notes. Dry-sweetish peachy wooden oily taste with resiny citric catnip notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, oily mouthfeel. Dry peachy resiny fruity ash aftertaste with wooden grassy mealy notes. Nice, powerful. Maybe a bit lacking in complexity. Too much ash in the aftertaste. (0.4l draft at Schouskjelleren, Oslo.)

faroeviking (10290) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 31, 2011
De una botella. Hazy amber colour, huge well lasting white looking head. Lots and lots of hoppiness in the aroma: ripe and exotic fruits, citrus, pine and peah too. Good filling mouthfeel. Quite hoppy (and quite pleasant) hoppy flavour: fruity ripe, pine, citrus, exotic fruits and alcohol , (in a very pleasant warming and very positive way). Good long lasting bitterness in the fruity pleasantly sweet finish.

KnutAlbert (6071) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2011
On tap at Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Heavy stuff. In your face herbal hops - spearmint and evergreens. Sweet malt, warming alcohol. A bit too much of everything - more sutied to bottling than on tap. The hops a bit too hars - unpolished.

saxo (14036) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2011
Tap @ Fairbar. Small head with short duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers, caramel and malt with a long bitter finish.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2011
From keg via bottle@Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Thanks to Bernt for sharing. A low blond head, upon an unclear orange-golden body. Alluring aroma from the Citra(?) hops. Superfruity and fresh. Some caramelly malts to back up. Nice fruity hop flavor, as well. Tropical and citrus zesty. Medium sweet, light caramelly malt foundation. Feels full in the mouth. Oily texture. Fruity hop linger in the finish.
