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!

Benzai (7225) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2012
50cl bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy dark orange color, small to medium beige head, fair lacing. Smell lightly malts, a lot of hops but a bit round, lots and lots of pine, resin and spruce. Taste should be the same...oh yeah! Malts, hops, pine, lightly resin, superbly bitter. Medium to full carbo, lightly sticky texture, medium to full body. Fantastic!!

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Appearance is slightly hazy straw-gold with incredible retention and a 2 finger head. Aroma is grapefruit, weed, citrus rind; no apparent malt smell except maybe slight booze and biscuit. Taste is honey and light caramel malt with with a scorching woodsy and citrusy hop profile. This is IPA amplified! Truly overhopped and in the best possible way. Lingering weed aftertaste. Body is medium-full with above average carbonation. Overall a total palate scorcher and completely demented.

Bugrat (60) - Cph. V, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010
Top notch IIPA. Very fruity and a very good balance between the malts and the hops. And as somewhat a hophead the dry finnish just grabs you and make you pop the next bottle open. I am gonna drink a lot of this...

Il fratellino cattivo di mikkeller gli dà la pista, con questa crema di birra fantastica dalla struttura mostruosa.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 27, 2011
from Erzbierschof.ch - hazy red-orange beer with a chaotic beige foam left; nice lacework; fresh and robust hoppy aroma with notes of quince marmalade, pine and citrus; full-bodied and sticky palate; some astringency (yet with a creamy mouthfeel) and very tasty, quite aggressive bitterness; which lasts very long in a hoppy aftertaste of quince marmalade, herbs and citrus; quite spicy - beautiful and extreme

DutchDrebus (3791) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle thx to benzai @home. Hazy ruby red colour with a decent white head. Smells hoppy, fruity, grapefruit, pine, fresh, great, sweet and resin. Tastes hoppy, fruity, lots of pine, fresh, refreshing bitter, great. Full body, slightly warming, great carbo.

Plovmand (6303) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle. It pours hazy amber with a longlasting creamy off white head. The aroma is heavily loaded with fruity hops that gives notes of peahes, mango, citrus, red berries, pine and caramel. The flavour is intense fruity and hoppy. Strong notes of piney hops, peach, passion fruit, grass, lemon, citrus, caramel and lighter notes of warming alcohol. This is very good! Quite cremy textured. Long fruity and hoppy finish.

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

Leighton (10483) - 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.
