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!

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 Not cask conditioned, but handpumped. Very good hop aroma. Cloudy dark yellow, OK head. Nice, aromatic hop flavour, good clean bitterness. A little sweet for an IPA, but of course also quite high ABV. 8 3 8 3 17
Bottle. Very hazy orange colour, unstable white head. The aroma has a hint of smoke. The flavour is peppery and slightly sweet with some citric fruit. Good mouthfeel in which the alcohol is felt. 7 3 7 3 17

henrik (41) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2004
Hand pumped at Cockney pub Århus. Slightly cloudy. Aroma: Hops hops hops! The 8.2% alc. is dangerously well hidden. Smooth and with a hoppy finish. "Ikke ringe" as we say in Århus. (meaning "not bad" - but really meaning "extremely good")

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2004
Draught at Ølbaren. Served in pint glass. Amber color. Minimal head. The aroma is powerfully hopped - very inviting. The taste is perfectly balanced between juicy, fresh hoppiness and solid, delicious, caramely maltiness - yum. Long, bitter, impressive finish. Lively mouthfeel with a nice bite to it. Superb drinkability - the alcohol remains hidden all the way through. A really impressive, delicious double IPA.

madsberg (10435) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2004
Draught @ Ølbaren: Clear amber/orange coloured. Small off white head, that diminishes quickly. Aroma is floral and hoppy. Flavour is very hoppy, light fruity and has a subtle note of sweetness. Ends on a nice bitter note. This is a nice smooth and very drinkable beer, but not as extreme as I would like it for the style.

Amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma of hops with notes of pine. Taste of malt with lots of hops. Nice and balanced aftertaste.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2004
Cask. Hazy golden with nice head. Nice malt base with juicy hops in abundance. Full flavoured with soft mouthfeel. Pleasent bitterness - not as bitter as I imagine it’s cross-atlantic counterparts. Very nice.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2004
Hazy deep golden color with a nice white head. The taste is a smooth malty body with a complex yet balanced hoppy palate. Finishes slightly dry but very nice.
