COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hopmaestro (174) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
It has a really fruity nose with mangos up front and a quite obvious maltiness underneath. The taste is more or less perfect, with a pretty heavy malty body being pulled by the workhorses of hops, and as they sweat out their pine oils and zest-like odors, they leave a trail of bitterness. It is perfectly balanced in my opinion, and you get a thick, heavy and chewy Imperial IPA that wants nothing else than to be your friend. Hvergang!

Peter_L (839) - SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2014
Flaska från SB. Förvånansvärd mörk IIPA, hade väntat mig en något ljusare dryck. Påtagliga dofter av karamell, frukt och grape. Simmig inledning. Det hade jag inte heller väntat mig. Hög initial maltsötma med lite karamell och aning av honung. Därefter inträder en markerad beska. Eldig munkänsla.

Cunningham (4775) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Hazy dark golden color with a fine frothy off white head. Looks nice and a fine lacing. Fine tropical fruity and lovely grapefruit hoppy. Ok body. Tad sweet and a solid bitterness. Oily. Fine balance between fruitiness and grapefruit flavor. Also some toffee. Nice ale. Lovely tasty Double IPA.
[Bottle from Systembolaget web order, Sweden]
