Danish: Juleøllet kan godt blive for sødt og kagekrydret. De volumiøse og fede retter den danske jul er kendetegnet ved, vil faktisk hellere have en sprød, humlet og frisk øl. Hoppy Christmas er en 5,9 % IPA med masser af appelsin. Tørhumlet selvfølgelig.
No more sweet sticky christmas cakes bottled and labelled as the most appropriate for the season. Rich and fatty foods want hoppy, bitter and fresh beers! It´s an orangy, lemony fresh IPA. Yeah, that’s right – we used a load of oranges! 5,9 % alk gives the beer just the right punch and the malty back bone mingles well with the aromatic and bitter hops. We used Chinook and Galaxy by the way. Dry hopped of course. Hoppy Christmas everyone!

Not your traditional sweet and spicy christmas beer. Clear golden orange beer with a red tint. Floral and hoppy on the nose with notes of orange and something slightly tropical. Taste is moderately bitter with notes of citrus, orange and some malt. Not bad at all.

kerenmk (3414) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 27, 2015
Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 14.1.2015. Cloudy dark amber. Mildly hoppy, tropical fruit aroma, very bitter, a little black pepper in the mouth. Medium body, quite carbonated, rather short hoppy finish.

Draught . Orange pour with offwhite head. Very nice fruity aroma. Taste has strong notes of orange which is kinda odd. Light pine and citrus.

Lambister (341) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Tap @ Taphouse, Copenhagen. Clear amber color with medium white head. Nose has fresh hops, exotic fruits and some malts. Well presented taste with similar flavors as in the nose. Tasty one. Tasted 071114

Beer5000 (5191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
330 ml bottle. Unclear dark golden body with a nice off-white head. Aroma has more malt than hops, malt, bread, medium citric fruit and hint of pine. Flavor is quite sweet malt, some caramel, dry fruit, pine and not much bitterness for an IPA. Medium body, actually surprisingly light bodied to be this malt driven beer. Drinkable but unbalanced.

MrOrla (1020) - Odense C, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Tap from Carlsens Kvater. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, peach, hops, resin and pine. Bitter finish. Nice Christmas IPA.

metalspice (355) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - DEC 20, 2014
Rødbrunt med tykt skum. Mye sitrus og litt fersken i duften. Samme i smaken samtidig som noe tørket frukt blander seg inn i bitterheten mot slutten.

Pours almost amber. Aroma has floral hops and some roasted malts. Taste has a good amount of hops, lacking some balance for me.
