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.

Dahlstrom (315) - Nygatan 29, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 500 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Cloud golden with a average white head. Moderate hoppy aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, pine and floral; moderate malty with notes of caramel, resin and toffee. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium bodied, with a slightly slick texture. Medium bitterness.

brnandersen (3348) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2016
Draught sample at CBWF 2016. Hazy, amber-golden colour with a thin, off-white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, floral hops, caramel malts, toasted notes and subtle grapefruit. Taste is bitter. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and bitter with citrus fruits and toasted notes. Lingering exotic fruits. Nice, straightforward IIPA.

ZodiacM (870) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi oranje kleurig bier. Zoetige hop en alcohol geur samn met wat citrus. In de smaak komt de citrus meer naar voren in de vorm van sinaasappel, maar ook de hop en een sterke zoete alcoholsmaak. Prima bitterzoete imperial ipa

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2016
Danish DIPA with a fairy tale-themed label on a 50 cl bottle. Medium thick, moussy, egg-white, lightly lacing, fairly stable head, warm orangey golden robe, practically clear with lively sparkling, turning hazy and somewhat amberish with yeast sediment added. Pleasant aroma, a bit less aggressively hoppy than many other double IPAs perhaps, but still ’dank’ and fragrant with hints of tangerine, biscuit, orange peel, hemp, bell peppers, dried flowers, bitter honey, chicken spices, pine resin, overripe papaja, cigarette tobacco, braised pork, pink pepper, old cake. Crisp and lively yet clean onset, fruity with hints of green banana, raw pineapple and sourish redcurrant, nicely paired with a kind of orange peel freshness; fiercely but at the same time ’finely’ tingling carbo enlightens an otherwise smooth, oily, slick body. Lean, subtly biscuity malt sweetness acts as a perfect balance for a gradually strengthening, long-stretched, deeply but at the same time quite softly bittering hop finish, peppery and grapefruity, with lovely dank retronasal aromas of citrus peel and pine. The drying effect of this firm hop character fits nicely with juicy biscuity malt sweetness at the very end, accompanied by a chest-warming, ’friendly’ but unmistakable, gin-like alcohol effect. Exemplary: for a style defined by its inherent ’extremity’, Hornbeer managed to keep it elegant and noble, yet powerful and bold at the same time. I love this.

BrettGT (187) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2016
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, a little bready malt, flowers. Pours golden, pretty clear, two finger off white head. Taste is medium to high in bitterness and medium sweet. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation and hoppy finish with a medium dryness. Is initially a bit sweet from the malt and then the floral and grapefruity hops take over. Enjoyable.
