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.

Cloudy amber brown beer. Frothy off white head. Nice head that tastes of creamy grapefruit and tangerine hop and a little honey! Slightly dry palate. Mild malt base with a little caramel. Soft grapefruit marmalade with a pinch of hop spice. Finishes semi dry with a trace of caramel again. The beer is decent, the head great!!

Idiosynkrasie (3924) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2012
500ml bottle. Cloudy pink amber with huge stable lacing frothy to creamy off-white head. Nice hop aroma, sweet fruit, strawberry, lychee, also some herbs and spices, laurel. Taste is (too) sweet, has exotic fruit, a sharp hop note does not more than flashing up near to the end, but hasn’t the stamina to keep the sweetness in check. More a sedating Imperial IPA, not one that wakes you up by its hoppyness.

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2012
(Draught) Pours amber. The aroma is floral and sweet grapefruit hoppy with some toasted and light caramelly malt to back it up. Maybe some pine. The flavour is citric and resinous hoppy alongside a light sweet and toasted malt profile. The mouthfeel is clean and tight with a light dry finish. Medium bodied.

rand (1300) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle 50 cl from erzbierschof.ch. Cloudy orange beer with an off-white and small head. Powerfull hoppy aromas, grapefruit, peach and apricot jam, toffy. The taste is full, with a fruity and caramelized malted wealth to support the perfumed notes of citrus, pine and alcohol. Soft and sweetened flavor and bitter and generous finish.

sebletitje (6800) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2011
bouteille 50cl from DeMolen beershop. Cuivre, mousse épaisse beige qui continue même a tenir dans toute la bouteille. Arôme est bien houblonnée avec note de pin, herbacée avec un medley d’agrumes. Palais offre un mélange de houblon sec ayant une bonne présence de citron, fleur de houblon et de pin, le tout mélangé avec des notes de malt caramel et levure, note de pamplemousse.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2011
Hazy red amber beer with a huge and persistent tan head. Fruity and malty aroma with notes of oranges, caramel and dried fruits. Taste is heavy sweet and very hoppy bitter. Sticky texture and medium body with a grassy long, dry bitter finish. Very tasty...

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2011
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour, slightly hazy, with lasting beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, bitter orange marmalade, citrus peel and a touch of caramel. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, a touch of a caramel and a finish with a generous citric bitterness and a warming dash of alcohol. More than medium body, fairly sweet, with a slightly metallic touch. Very nice.

esp0r (2008) - NORWAY - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle at Olympen. Amber red, enormeous tanned head. Smells of plums, blackberries, some hay or grass. Taste is very malty, full bodied with good sweetness. There is some alcohol, plums and caramel here as well. Finish is pretty hoppy and bitter. The berries are dominating with some grass. A clishe here would be the forrest in the fall. Feel is quite thick but not oily. The label with 3 little pigs and the wolf is awsome

Rasmus40 (11345) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 6, 2011
Clear orange with a huge off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit and pine. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Bitter and dry finish with some burning alcohol. The bitterness is very rough and the sweetness does get a bit sticky. 060411
