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.

PapaVillum (630) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2015
50 cl, flaske, 8,2 % ABV, BB 04/12/16, købt på Hornbeer's stand på fØL 2015 i Frederikssund, 25. februar 2015 Mørk kobberfarvet og ufiltreret Dobbelt IPA med 4-5 cm stor offwhite skumtop. Dejlig aroma. Humlenuancer af blomster og citrus. Frugtnuance af appelsin. Smagen er dejlig gennembitter, grænsende til det beske i svælget tilsidst. I hånden har det bitre en let sød og tro følgesvend. Tro til ølstilen med det lille søde indslag, jeg bryder mig godt om i en Dobbelt IPA. Opsummering: solid bitter og let sødme. Kroppen er mellem fyldig. I munden er øllet let og pirrende perlende og samtidig blødt. Afslutningen er tør. Karboneringen virker meget veltilpasset, måske et nyk under medium niveau. Konsistensen er olieret. Hornbeer's og Jørgen Rasmussen's gode håndværk fornægter sig ikke, ej heller i denne humle fætter. På trods af dette efterlades jeg med et indtryk af en lidt anonym, men udmærket Dobbelt IPA.
