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.

gyllenbock (4561) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2009
On tap at Lord Nelson in Copenhagen. A cloudy, orange-like beer with small white foam. Fruity aroma with a lot of tropical fruits. Nice fruity taste with pineapple and some citrus. Also malt sweetness, candy and soap. Bitter aftertaste. Stable and good but perhaps not so advanced. Easy to drink.

deyholla (6605) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Bottle. Poured a cloudy dark amber with a light tan head. Aroma was full of floral, citrus and fruity hops with a bit of pine underlying. The flavor brought out the pine notes much more with some spice and citrus as undertones.

Dark orange colored with hazy appearance. Lots of particles. Medium sized yellow head. Rich grassy-flowery aroma with thin peach also present, bitter aroma. Medium bodied, soapy palate. Flavor is more soapy with hops and flowers dominating, aftertaste dries strongly with peach still.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2009
Bottled. Dark amber coloured. Unclear. Light brown dense lasting head. Sweetness, fruits, caramel, light pine and light spice in the aroma. Flavour of pine, citrus, flower, light caramel, light soap and sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Dry. Nicely bitter in the end. Had expected a tad more for a IIPA, but it’s still a very drinkable beer.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2012 (Re-rate, draught at Pikkulintu, 20121122) The beer poured brown and quite clear. Its head was medium sized, long lasting and almost white. Aroma had fruitiness, tangerine and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, tangerine, grapefruit, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, sweet and bitter. Way better than the bottle I had. The taste was still messy.

Strongly hops and pine in aroma. Medium bodied and dry palate with with little carbonation. Malts, hops, yeast, some bitterness, lightly sweetness, pine and metallicness in tastee. Malty aftertaste. Old rating: 8-2-6-3-10=2.9

The big bad woolf hunting the three little piggies...well ..maybe I just dont get it... The pour is...shiit this one is carbonated...it keeps coming out..damn.. its in my zink now. Be sure to have a couple of glasses ready..this bastard wants to get out. Free willy go home. Well back to the appearence. It is dark amber with a light brownish-orange head. The body is moisty with yeast(?) leftovers swimming around. The nose is nice and full of hops together with caramel and some citrus and pine cones. Some dryhopping has been done. The taste is a little pale and not as agressive as the aroma. There is a bitterness and a fruity and hoppy finish. The palate is really good and creamy - very suitable for the beer.

A 0.5L bottle tasted at Pikkulintu 10.6.09. Expressolike creamy beige head. Mild nose of hops. Hazy dark brown coppery colour. Slight hints of strawberry in the taste. Sweet and soft grassy taste.

Rune (7988) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2009
Served from a bottle at CBF 09. Fragile bubbles on the surface of a golden-copper body. Solid amount of hops in aroma and taste. Pine needles and citrus shells. Spices and semi-sweet, caramel malts. And a lingering dry bitter aftertaste with tingling alcohol on the tongue. Fits the style and almost perfect for my palate (16.05.2009).
