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.

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]

Köpt på Sydtembolaget. En helt ok IIPA men hade väntat mig mer av Hornbeer. Smakar lite väl mycket alkohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Havregatan 141010. Bottle (500 ml) from Systembolaget (54:-). Fruity and really hoppy with malty and caramely notes, sweet, grape fruits and pine needles, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is long, dry, bitter and hoppy.

Wonderful fruity aroma. The palate is very well-hopped and extremely fruity, but the bitter taste is fanska quite right yet. Not too heavy. Perfect bitterness that is not too heavy but not too light fills the mouth forever. Top scores get it from me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Flaska från systemet - fruktig doft med inslag av malttoner.bärnstensfärgad och grumlig. Tydlig beska med en maltigsötma.

ramboraffe (527) - SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
500 ml bottle. Hazy amber with white head. Smell is heavy caramel malt body and bitter hops with citrus zest and pine. Taste is heavy sweet caramel malty with raisin, fruit and bread. Dry hoppy finish with pine, citrus zest, grapefruit and hay. Starts very sweet but finishes dry. Low bitterness for the style. Low carbonation.

Nothing experimental, just a really well executed Imperial IPA that is nicely balanced and deserves the Imperial tag. Malt flavor even more complex than expected. Goes really well with gorgonzola as the bottle suggests.

Kopparfärgad med stort vit skum. Doftar citrus/amerikansk humle och malt! Ganska maltig och rund i smaken med avslutning av humle! Riktigt bra!!

bottle@hotel. deep amber. nice piney, resinous, rich caramelly nose. pretty standard dipa feel though to it. full thick body. loads of caramelly sweets, but nicely bittered for balance. bit too caramellized body, traits of barley winery here. finishes clean dry though. which is a feat considering the considerable amount of sweet caramels in this beverage.
