COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like youve never seen it before. And crunching through crisp, sparkling drifts releases billows of pineapple, citrus and papaya with every step. The reign of the snow angel is over. Long live the hop angel where parks and playgrounds become adorned with the outlines of celestial beings that fell to Earth from angry looking emerald clouds. Tune in to breakfast TV to find lifes on hold for 24 hours as this hop day demands you rocket down a hill on the back of a baking tray. Or simply raise a glass of this festive IPA as we wish you a very hoppy Christmas.

Delicious ipa. The aroma is a little bit underwhelming, but the taste makes up for this. It has tropical fruits, but also warmth in the aftertaste, medium bitter and overall outspoken and well balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

Bitter met een zoetje. Wel wat te warm. Te dun schuim. Bij Arjan smaakte die beter, wat kouder denk.

MrHangover (4189) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle. Drank this a bit too late I guess.... Pours a slightly clouded, orange beer with a small white head on top. Has some floaties goofing around in the glass. No worries. Aroma is crisp, fresh. Light citric, touch of vanilla in the background and a nice malty backbone. Flavor is medium bitter, well balanced and good amount of maltiness to back up the hops. Hop presence has certainly not faded over time here, still very present. Medium long, light bitter aftertaste. Good level of carbonation going, juicy mouthfeel. Quite a very nice IPA. Merry Christmas..

Tsekouratos (603) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JAN 6, 2014
330 ml from Beer&Deli, Athens Greece. Beautiful orange copper color with a not so strong but quite fluffy white head. Aromas of pine, pineapple, citrus and some spicy-sweet notes, honey, cinnamon and papaya!!!!! Dry and bitter aftertaste which leaves a nice spicy feeling of cinnamon and papaya! Light to medium body, with a low to none carbonation. A nice IPA, not so sure if it fits the Christmas type, as its my first try!!

HerrBierkoenig (1252) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 5, 2014
From bottle. Pours clear ruby copper liquid.White head falls down quickly. Aroma of mango, citrus, pineapple, somewhat typical Brewdog, flowers. Medium body, average carbonation, much of hops, semi sweet, aromatic fruity aftertaste. Taste is the same like aroma, mango, citrus, pineapple, somewhat typical Brewdog, flowers plus some strange notes of ammonia or pitch?? All the way very nice hoppy beer for an evening.

jinroh (1363) - ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2014
Pours light amber with a small head. Aroma is fresh, floral with a nice malt backbone. Taste comes out quite balanced, bitterness is not overwhelming at all - but you can understand its actually there. Alcohol level keeps the beer nicely warming. Some oily pine needles and resin also there before long and earthily dry aftertaste. Good and very drinkable IPA, not too exciting but very enjoyable.
