COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En ny humlet juleøl. Hvis du på et tidspunkt synes, at du har fået tilstrækkeligt af den søde juleøl, julegodterne og de andre ting vi går og nyder i julen, så skal du prøve en Happy, Hoppy, Christmas. Det er ikke en voldsomt humlet øl, men en mild IPA der er godt tørhumlet. Det er derfor en meget forfriskende øl, der gør rigtigt godt som en afveksling til den mere traditionelle juleøl. Humle er det gode modspil til den kraftige mad, og du kunne jo prøve med et glas Happy, Hoppy, Christmas juleaften til anden eller flæskestegen. Hvis du er typen der traver omkring juletræet og afsynger 10 julesange – herunder alle vers i “Et barn er født i Betlehem”, – så vil en kold Happy, Hoppy Christmas være en lise for sjælen efter alle strabadserne.

Bottle. An enormous, dense, light beige head sits on top of a slightly unclear amber body. The head disappeares gradually, into a rocky pile of bubbles. Mostly hoppy nose, with pine cones and resins. Some maltyness, but not much. Nice, but a 7 is awarded under doubt. Quite sweet in the mouth, but with enough bitterness to bring balance. Piney and resiny hops, also in the finish. A quite nice one, although a bit sweetish. 110614

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2011
an IPA, but a rather modest variety of the species. Aromatic hoppy nose with pine and herbs, this continues with a herbal bittersweet mouth feel. Soft grass, mint and some black pepper in the finish. Would be fine with heavy food, the herbs should be able to cut through
