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.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels, with James and Paul. Pours amber with a big, foamy head. Some leafy hops in the nose, with light caramel and pine. Medium sweet flavor, some gingerbread, caramel and dry leaves. Medium to big in body with lively carbonation. Dry finish with lots of leafy bitterness, some graham crackers and caramel. Pretty meh. A bit dusty. I have to wonder about the freshness of this bottle. (3.4)

Keg at CBC Clerkenwell during the Second Birthday Party - London. Pours clearish gold with a creamy white head. Nose of ripe tropical fruits, mango and papaya. Medium to big sweet flavor with juicy citrus, light caramel, some bready malts. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish with dry citrus and more tropical fruits. Better than the bottle I had. (3.6)

On tap at CBC Brixton. Pours an amber colour with a slightly off white head. Aroma is decent - candy sweetness, with some passion fruit and red berries. Medium body, medium carbonation. Pine, light caramel, wood, grapefruit, light sherbet fruitiness. A touch too sweet maybe, but overall nicely balanced and really pretty tasty.

w_adwersarz (113) - Cracow, POLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Aromat bardzo ładny. Żywiczny, trawiasty, winogron trochę., do tego słodowo, karmelowo. Piana spora średnio pęcherzykowa, dość szybko ulega rozkładowi, ładnie oblepia szkło. Barwy ciemnego złota/pomarańczy. Lekko opalizujące, ładnie pracuje. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego. W smaku słodkie, trochę winogron czuć i goryczka wysoka żywiczno/trawiasta. Mimo słodowości wydaje się wytrawne, ale to może przez dość wyraźną goryczkę która jest lekko zalegająca. Nic uciążliwego bardzo fajnie :)

Bottle. Who has the ugliest labels, Hornbeer or Stronzo? It’s a close race, but I think Hornbeer gets my vote after seeing this atrocity. Hazy hazelnut brown with a medium sized off white head. Caramel, bread, light cheesy, wood, forest, earthy. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light/medium bitter. Not difficult to come by something I would prefer over this.

Zapach genialny, winogrona, cytrusy, mango, ananas, trawa, żywica -pięknie się to komponuje. Piwo wygląda przepięknie, gęsty kożuch piany, barwa miedziana, lekko mętna. W smaku cytrusowe, winogrona, odrobina karmelu i biszkoptów, świetna goryczka. O dziwo na końcu lekko grzeje alkohol, ale piwo jest tak zbalansowane że raczej zaleta niż wada. Świetna IPA.
