Light floral hops, fruity, yeasty or some weird fermented grass off-flavour. Restrained hop profile, very phenolic / alcoolic, moderate sweetness, grainy.

Draught at Braukunst Live, badged as Holy Shit Double IPA, green hoppy nose over a malty body with a vegetal bitterness, doesn’t seem so well integrated.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Mastikim. Thanks Koelschtrinker for this bottle! Pours yellow with a nice head, aroma of honey, caramel, vanilla and wood, flavor is sourish and bizarre with metal, alcohol, caramel and cookies, medium bodied.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at Mastikim. Thanks Koelschtrinker for this bottle! As Holy Shit Ale. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of somewhat stale hops, a bit fruity. Sour and citric flavor with a bit of stale hops in the background, a grainy note and a metallic finish. Very strange, definitely infected.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from my secret santa from Berlin. Thanks a lot Kayka! Hazy amber body with a beautiful thick, creamy, really stable, white head. Fantastic aroma of tropical fruits like mango, pineapple, grapefruit, lime, some pine and also a present malt sweetness. Taste is bitter/sweet, with more citric aromas and a honey-like and grassy, sweet malt backbone. The mouthfeel is medium, oily, maybe a bit too less carbonated and with a very good, pretty bitter and fruity finish, with a light astringency. Overal really tasty! I don’t get why this is rated so low? Offering a great hop bite, a wonderful tropical fruit explosion and a good balance between sweet and bitter, this is nothing less than one of the best (D)IPAs from Germany in my opinion!

330ml bottle from Berlin Bier Shop. Really enjoyed this, has a wheetos aroma with an indulgent helping of fruity hops and a rye-like bitterness from the malts. Had no idea it was a Christmas ale, and has none of the spices associated with Christmas beers. Very drinkable with alcohol hidden well. Another good Schoppe beer!
