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.

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

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle. An enormous, dense, light beige head sits on top of a slightly unclear amber body. The head disappeares gradually, into a rocky pile of bubbles. Mostly hoppy nose, with pine cones and resins. Some maltyness, but not much. Nice, but a 7 is awarded under doubt. Quite sweet in the mouth, but with enough bitterness to bring balance. Piney and resiny hops, also in the finish. A quite nice one, although a bit sweetish. 110614
