COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En ny humlet julel. Hvis du p et tidspunkt synes, at du har fet tilstrkkeligt af den sde julel, julegodterne og de andre ting vi gr og nyder i julen, s skal du prve en Happy, Hoppy, Christmas. Det er ikke en voldsomt humlet l, men en mild IPA der er godt trhumlet. Det er derfor en meget forfriskende l, der gr rigtigt godt som en afveksling til den mere traditionelle julel. Humle er det gode modspil til den kraftige mad, og du kunne jo prve med et glas Happy, Hoppy, Christmas juleaften til anden eller flskestegen. Hvis du er typen der traver omkring juletret og afsynger 10 julesange herunder alle vers i Et barn er fdt i Betlehem, s vil en kold Happy, Hoppy Christmas vre en lise for sjlen efter alle strabadserne.

Flaske: Orangebrun uklar l. Fin let grsset humleduft der minder en tand om en ESB. Smagen er ogs udmrket ptrods af at humlen ikke er helt s dominerende i smagen hvor der ogs er en smule restsdme. Moderat kedelig.

On tap at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is strong resiny hops. Taste is a strong malty base, supported by good fruity hops.

thewolf (12375) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2010
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours muddy, pale copper with a fine, creamy, off-white head. Nice piney and grapefruity hops nose with some mild caramel malts. Light nuts and berries. Medium carbonation, kinda watery palate. Flavour is mild, soft sweetness, light fruity hops. There is some mild bitterness in there, but it somehow just feels a tad too dull.

jesperhammer (4618) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2010
20-NOV-2010, bottle @Ekstra Bladets Julelssmagning. Cloudy light brown, low head. Very nice IPA nose with hoppy bitterness. Some malt backs up the hops, but the brew turns very thin and watery in the end:-( Apart from that I quite like Hornbeer IPAs.

anders37 (25619) - Malm, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2010

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
500ml bottle, shared with Skinnyviking. Dark, apricot body. Frothy and bubbly, beige head. Fragile lacing on the glassware. Hoppy, sappy oranges to the nose. Fruity taste profile that finished with a mild, dry hopped touch. Thin to medium bodied. Not quite my kind of julel, except for the label design (hotel room, Copenhagen, 07.11.2010).

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2010
On tap. Hazy amber golden with an off-white head leaving some lacework. The nose has some fresh citrusy hops but unfortunately also quite some diacetyl. Medium body, sweet fruit, good citrusy hops leaving a fairly distinct bitterness. If not for the buttery nose this wouldve been a fairly decent - albeit sweet - IPA. 091110

Draught at Lorden. Clear yellow/golden - white head. Toasted. Fruity. Tea. Herbal. Light bitter hoppy. Medium malty. Sweetness. A bit boring. Not that hoppy.

Forsberg_dk (258) - DENMARK - NOV 13, 2010
50 cl bottle, pours dark with a minor head, aroma of pine, caramel, chocolate and yeast, taste is caramel, pine, malt and slight diacetyl, not very bitter at all, fairly weak finish, enjoyable but somewhat disappointing nontheless,
