COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, seasonal
single hop simcoe IPA
This Christmas, wish for a green Christmas. Where flurries of hop flakes blanket the world like you’ve 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 life’s 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.

Erzengel (9742) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2017
*Out of the bottle @ Craft Mainz 2017. Great fantastic floral fruity beginning. Lots of intense tropical fruit together with hints of grain in the body and a rich grainy sweetness. Intense, thick and deep floral.

The_Osprey (9650) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
Dec 2012 Cold bottle on Christmas day. Fizzy with a decent head. Lots of astringent bitterness with a bit of pineapple, but lots more grapefruit. A good pale ale in comparison to others I’ve had. Not very floral, which is good.

Quack-Duck (9540) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear orange-golden colour, mid-sized white head. Lovely aroma of citrus fruit. Full-bodied, malty and sweet start, immediately blended with loads of delicious citrusy hops. Very fresh and fruity.

kraddel (9322) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle Pours clear blonde, touch of amber , rather small white head Smell is very intense hops , pine, typical brewdog . Taste is nice hops, some pine again . slightly malt notes . Very good, as usually when you drink a brewdog IIPA / IPA , but they have so many , that I start to fail to taste big differences in between them.. Very good though , just nothing to go out of your way off, when you can get Hardcore so much more easy .

Svesse (8921) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2013
(Draught at BrewDog Stockholm, 6 Dec 2013, as "Voodoo Doll") Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with grainy malt, toast, apricots and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with notes of toast, grainy malt, apricots, citrus peel and a generous floral bitterness. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. More tropical than Christmasy in my opinion, but fresh and tasty. Nice one.

Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2012
330ml bottle. Can’t say clear, but clearish golden color. Tiny head, stays. Good lacing. Grapefruit, fresh grass, hops in aroma. Sweet, hops, grapefruit, alcohol in flavor. Beer trying to be something, but it is not what it tries to be.

laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Draught (6.8%) @ Olutexpo 2013
Aroma is fruity and fresh with hops, some resiny tones and mango. Flavour has lots of resiny notes, some caramel, exotic fruits, minerals and dstant woody notes. Refreshing and nice, the minerals and wood do distiurb a bit though. Also this gets some harshly bitter and vegetable notes at the end of the glass.
Earlier Rating: 11/15/2012 Total Score: 3.9
33 cl bottle (7,5%) @ home. Batch #320, BBE 11.10.2013
Aroma has gooseberry bush, some pine needles, exotic fruits and hints of resin. Flavour is rather hoppy with gooseberry bush, some biscuits, grapefruit and hints of caramel. Nothing to do with christmas but a good ipa anyway.
