morri (277) - NORWAY - NOV 9, 2013
750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. 1 finger off-white foamy head. Excellent lacing. Clear golden body. Aroma is some light fruity hops, caramel, pine and citrus. Dry bitter on the tongue. Some malty sweetness. Very well balanced. Creamy in the mouth. I don?t get what?s christmassy about this, however it?s a great IPA.

SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Golden color with small frothy head. Notes of pine, spices, herbs, citrus. Slightly too bitter at first for my taste, bitterness mellows out after a while tho which brings out some fruitier and sweeter taste. Not bad but would need some more complexity to be more enjoyable.

allmyvinyl (9808) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle from Appellation Wines - Cheers Ash! Pours clear orange with a big frothy head. Aromas of ginger biscuits and christmas spice. Creamy aroma too, alongside a creamy texture, lovely tangerine thing going on. Long finish. Very nice.

AshtonMcCobb (5900) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 8, 2013
33cl bottle. Appearance - bright orange with a lovely frothy head. Gentle but steady carbonation. Nose - ginger biscuits and cream. Taste - more ginger nut biscuits. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a dry long finish. Overall - good beer if a little single dimensional. It’s nice to have a change from darker and richer Christmas beers though.

jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2013
You’ll get the traditional ginger/spice combination here, but well balanced against a nice, hoppy IPA. Have one or two in the season.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Upfront mandarin, cloves, ginger, honeydew melon and grapefruit. Really sweet nose but balanced out by herb notes. Taste is less complex, sweetness is a touch sickly but dries out with a spicy herb finish. Nice tropical flavours and a hit of IPA bitterness down the back. Interesting IPA, definitely one to try.

Fantastisk beska blandat med sötma i aromen. Smaken likaså, väldigt fin balans.

On tap at Ölrepubliken. Sweet and fruity smell with candy, grapefruit and pine. Similar taste, tastes a bit like fruit candy.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours with a huge fluffy white head, true copper, lots of carbonation. Nose is a nice combination of floral citrus and pine hop, touch of caramel malts. Tastes hop bitter, a little alcohol bite, caramel mealtimes. Another gem from the man.
