Danish: Hornbeer Imperial IPA er en lidt kraftigere sag, end almindelige IPA. Der er brugt lidt mere af det hele. Oprindelig var IPA'erne beregnet for de engelske søfolk, der skulle rejse den lange vej til Indien. Det er 200 år siden. For at øllet skulle holde sig friskt, blev det brygget med høj alkoholprocent og med høj bitterhed fra humlen. Vi er så gået en tand videre. Har brugt lidt mere malt, lidt mere humle. Prøv Hornbeer Imperial IPA til ristet rugbrød med gorgonzola eller andre markante, bløde oste. IPA'ens bitterhed sammen med ostens skarpe smag passer fantastisk sammen.

Thanks! Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Light hazy amber, creamy white head. Sweet resin nose, malty iron,..; Strong bitter herbal, metal, pine resin, very bitter peel, touch sugar,… Bit metallic body. Very heavy pine resin & herbal taste here with light metallic notes, bit too much in that direction for me. Decent still.

Vestergaard (325) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma has bitter hops, unripe citrus like lime and grape fruit, pine, resin, grass and a tiny hint of earth. Taste has fortunately not got a whole lot of earth, but is carried by strong, hoppy bitterness and fruityness along with a mild, subtile malt character. The alcohol is prominent, but mainly adds good stuff. Rather full body, medium carbonation, and a slight hoppy and alcohol heat.

Backlog. Sample at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Not as exciting as the ’happy hoppy viking’ but still a decent IIPA.

Grifo. Copa Globo. Saboreada en feb´13. Color ámbar y apariencia turbia. Capa amarillenta y cremosa. Anillos algodonosos. Aromas intensos de malta caramelo, levadura, pomelo/naranja y notas de pan. Las maltas tostadas quedan inundadas por un ascendente sabor resinoso que las envuelve. Cuerpo intenso y carbonatación suave. En el intermedio sensaciones de zumo denso de pomelo, trazos de anis y notas de caramelo. Astringencia cítrica. Final seco y resinoso. Naranja en el retrogusto. El ABV es evidente pero queda equilibrado por deliciosos sabores. On-tap. Snifter glass. Enjoyed on feb´13. Amber color & foggy appearance. Yellowish creamy head & rocky rings. Intense caramel malt, yeast, grapefruit/orange aromas & bready notes. Toasted malts are ovewhelmed by increasing resiny flavors all over. Full body. Soft carbonation. Dense grapefruit juice sensation, hints of anise & candy notes in the middle. Citric astringency. Dry resiny finish. Orange on the aftertaste. Evident ABV is well balanced by flavorful flavors.

Brown colour with a creamy head. Aromas of hops with some caramel. Some grass notes as well. Taste of hops with a smooth feeling and a bitter aftertaste with a light caramel sweetness. Some fruity notes. Well balanced and rather smooth taste for an imp. IPA in a good way.
