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!

Really great christmas-IPA. I guess this will match the danish christmas eve duck meal perfect, with lots of bitterness and lots of orange and citrus aroma. Perfect balance, and at low temp it feels oily and silky. Refreshing and tasty as well.

Vanilla head, crocheted lacings, a bit hazy orange-golden body. Scents; resin, roasted malts, oranges, sour berries. Taste; dry bitter , peaches, oranges roasted malts, wood, bitter-flour, chocolate notes. Modest carbonation and nice body. Finishes with dark bread, roasted malts again, bitter fruity lingering and balanced. Good that I found the very last one, as brewery was sold out.
