COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
WinterCoat's Imperial IPA is light amber in color. The fruitiness from the ale yeast combines beautifully with the body of the malts and the feshness of the bops to create a very well-balanced, though very heavily hopped brew. Double Hop has a heady hop aroma without too much bitterness. The smooth taste belies its 8.5% alcohol content. This beer is dangerously pleasant to drink!

Hazy amber color; medium-sized head. Strangely the aroma shows not only hops, but also some sweat and cheese rind (tomme). Good body strength; sweetish caramel and toffee flavor; again there is a strong cheesy yeast preence; the hops are quite fruity too; the final is well balanced, but also a bit dusty. Enjoyable, but peculiar.

Hazy golden color. It has a very nice hoppy aroma, citrusy and grassy. Good body strength, round mouthfeel, with malt flavor and strong bitterness, quite aromatic; for this strong beer the (almost complete) lack of carbonation is a detriment. The final is good, balanced, but could bite more. Very good, but I’m sure Wintercoat can do better of it.

2005-05-20, draught, 8.4% ABV, 7-4-8-5-15=39
Hazy blond color. The aroma is not very strong, but very nice, malty hoppy and a bit fruity. The taste is full malty, with a good amount of hopping, fudge impression, good aromatic, ends almost like fudges.

@ DBF 2005 Spring and hopsy flower come sparkling up as the aroma. Rich golden body. Taste is hopsy and a delicious bitterness.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Cask at DBF2005. The nose is dominated by loads of flowery hops, delicious! Golden colored body, medium fluffy head. Flavor of sweet malts backed up by a shitload of hops, very nice bitterness. Not as extreme as many IIPA’s, but very nice.

Dark golden, small dissapearing head. Floral bitter hop aroma, hints of tropical fruit and grapefruit. Flavour starts sweet of oranges and kiwi. Strong grapefruity bitter finish.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
Tap, brew pub. Bartender told me it was not an IPA? Howeer, it is bitter and aromatic. Citrus aroma dominates. Some alcohol present in the finish. Could take some more hops.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2005
On tap at "Plan B", Copenhagen. Very hoppy IPA-like nose. The flavour is surprisingly malty and somewhat sweet before the nicely bitter and hoppy finish. Pleasant and the alcohol is practically undetectable.

HenrikSoegaard (10771) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2006 With an aroma that is very good, it tastes so powerfull that you almost eat this beer. The palate is oily and full.

Ungstrup (29825) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2005
[At Jyske Øldage 2004, Kolding] An unclear orange beer with a white disappearing head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with hints of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty and quite hoppy and bitter. A good Double IPA, but I’d like even more hoppyness.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2004
Draught at a friends place. Rating number 1500!!
Pours unclear orange golden with a thick white head. Nice and fresh aroma, creamy and hoppy with flower and yoghurt notes. Flavor is dominated by plenty of hops. Not too bitter but more fruity and flowery hoppy with a good dry hoppy bitterness in the finish. Soft and very complex and tasty as a mofo. I had about 4 pints in one evening and if it hadn’t run out I would have kept drinking it for the rest of the night! An excellent choice for my 1500th rating!!
