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.

På fat fantastiska Orsted olbar. Doftar riktigt friskt å fruktigt. Imponerande start.. Smakar rejält beskt med fruktiga inslag. Lite för likt Amager Iporna . Menar då damm torr . Bra Dipa .

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.

Franzen (323) - SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2014
Aroma is citrus, mango and pine. Fruity taste with hints of caramelly sweetness ended with a big bitterness. There is something off with the bitterness though that I can’t really put my finger on. A pretty standards IIPA.

Trappist1 (495) - Diest, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2014
From tap@hoppy loft delirium. Color is misty orange, very very nice soft gentle off-white head. Appealing. Fruity nose, new world hops, rich, more fruit in the back (mango).. Very balanced, taste is dominated by hops, fruity, alcohol gives some punch. Finish with some fruitiness in the back, dry, bitter, long lasting, bitter finish. Overall, very good IPA

Thanks! Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Light hazy amber, creamy white head. Sweet resin nose, malty iron,..; Strong bitter herbal, metal, pine resin, very bitter peel, touch sugar,… Bit metallic body. Very heavy pine resin & herbal taste here with light metallic notes, bit too much in that direction for me. Decent still.
