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!

50 cL bottle, thanks to faroeviking. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Grapefruity aroma. Flavour is again fruity with a soft caramel base. Hoppy finish. Nice IPA but not double.

Ungstrup (29084) - 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.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2005
(On tap) There ain’t many Double IPAs worldwide, and certainly not Danish ones. This comes with no less than four hop varieties. Lovely, aromatic, spiced, hoppy nose. Quite sweetish, but never cloying. Just as the hops although distinctive never get too much. Actually this is quite harmonious for it’s style. But not a beer for all night. 220505

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.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2006
Bottled (thanks henrikb!). Hazy orange colour, nice white head. Herbal and flowery hoppy aroma. Some orange, candy and hints of yeast too. Flavour is leathery, fruity and even some caramel in finish. Also flowery hops and some grassyness. Aftertaste is yeast, fruits and hops.

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2006
UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Cask at Cockney Pub, Århus. Brownish amber, creamy head. Obvious lychee aroma. Really sweet with velvetty soft mouthfeel. Orangey with some caramel and lots of hop flavour. Also very malty, which hides some of the bitterness. A little bit too sweet, otherwise an excellent hop aromatic ale.

Draught. Slightly hazy copper colour with a small white head. Malty hoppy aroma. Sweet malty hoppy floral flavor with some hints of pine needles. Dry hoppy finish with a bitter aftertaste.

Hazy gold beer, good white head. Quite an aged malt nose! Light semi dry palate. Creamy malt nose, whisper of smoke. Slight sour note before the hops kick in - smooth orange and a trace of grapefruit. Finishes creamy and with light fruits. Well joined up and slightly off the beaten track.

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.

2008-02-18, cask conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus, 7-4-8-4-15=38
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.
