COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Hornbeer IPA er vores Indian Pale Ale. 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 har skelet lidt til de amerikanske mikrobryggerier, der har givet IPA`erne deres egen fortolkning. Vi har anvendt malte der giver lidt højere restsødme og humle der giver masser af aroma og behagelig bitterhed. Prøv Hornbeer IPA til ristet rugbrød med gorgonzola eller andre markante, bløde oste. IPA`ens bitterhed sammen med ostens skarpe smag, passer fantastisk sammen.

Christian (11807) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Hazy amber with a big and lasting, off-white head. A rich and complex hop aroma with grass and herbal European notes as well as citrus and peach. Flavour is bitter and hoppy, with just enough malt backing.

thewolf (11558) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
Tap @ Aarhus, 2008.
Pours deep brownish amber with a nice, frothy, ligghtly creamy, off-white head. Aroma is nicely hoppy, and with very powerful caramel. Grapefruit and citrus dominate. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is light caramel-sweet (a bit too much perhaps?), pleasant hops, god dryness and a nice frutiy bitter finish. It is an okay IPA.

FatPhil (11008) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2009
Draught (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Odd aroma - took a lot of swirling to pull any beeriness out of it - just simple pungent hops and sweet malt. Taste gains simple elastoplast phenols too. Crisp carbonation. Sticky sweet malts, but yet fairly watery. Tasty to the bottom, but not exciting or refreshing.

madsberg (10805) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2009
Bottled. Dark golden coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Sweetness, light pine, citrus and flowers in the aroma. Flavour of chocolate, light flowers, light citrus and some vague pine. Quite balanced, but a bit on the light side. Medium to full bodied. Dry. Nice fruity bitterness in the end. Quite easy to drink, and definately a beer which could easily be served for your macro beer friends, as flavour are a bit subdued without being non existent.

Bov (10614) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2010
from erzbierschof.ch - cloudy dark reddish-amber beer with a little persistent beige foam; solid hoppy aroma of quince marmalade; medium to full-bodied and fairly astringent, gently oily and sticky; a robust bitterness and a long fruity hoppy and slightly herbal finish

Botella, courtesy of Pinball. Golden hazy amber colour. Sweetish very fruity hoppy pleasant aroma. Very good mouthfeel. Flavour of hops indeed, dry, very fruity, piney and pleasantly bitter. Dry hoppy long lasting finish.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Reddish brown with a creamy head. The aroma is very promising with nice, crisp and fruity hops. The flavour also has a lot of hops with fruity and citrussy notes – nicely balanced by a sweetish caramel base. It’s really nice!
