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.

kraddel (8890) - Antwerp, - 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 .

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 Bottle online from the brewery. Pours clear amber golden with a white head. Aroma is moderately malty with floral, citrus, grassy notes. Taste is fruity, citrus, grassy, malty with a big smack of simcoe hops. Medium bodied, moderate carb. Dry, piney, bitter finish. Nice

Erzengel (9504) - 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.

ABS (1110) - Stokke, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2017
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Tønsberg. Pours amber with a red hue. Alcohol, malt, junipers, floral flavour. Very bitter. Medium to thick body. Soft carbonation. Tastes a bit old, which is weird, considering it is brewed for this season.
