COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

metalspice (136) - 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.

borre_m (353) - NORWAY - DEC 18, 2014
Pours almost amber. Aroma has floral hops and some roasted malts. Taste has a good amount of hops, lacking some balance for me.

Fat på Bishop Malmö. Smak och doft av humle, citrus, apelsin, röda bär, tropisk frukt med toner av karamell. Frisk och fruktig med en fin kombination av tall och grapefrukt i beskan.

Tap at the Bishops Arms, Gustav Adolfs Torg, Malmo. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is resin woody hop with some citrus notes. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big resin hop light citrus bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

TyggaBrown (420) - NORWAY - NOV 24, 2014
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.
