On tap @ Sr Lúpulo - Gijón. Solid American IPA but no Christmas hints. If I have to rate this beer as an IPA, Mikkeller nails it but as a Christmas Ale ... Anyway good beer with good hop fruity flavors, golden color and white persistent head

Super tasting beer with hints of the pine needles and ginger. Lots of frothy head and lace. Incredibly easy drinking. Bit of alcohol warmth towards the end of the finish. Fab brew.

mikkellund42 (782) - DENMARK - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours light hazy deep amber with huge white head. Aroma is intense hoppy with notes of spruce, pine, resin, bitter grapefruit peel and soap but also some fruits like mandarin, apple and figs. Taste is medium sweet, very bitter and light acidic. Body of oily with medium fizzy carbonation. Finish is long and mostly bitter with notes of spruce, pine, bitter grapefruit, malt, caramel, fudge, hazelnut syrup and faint hints of ginger. Nice complexity.

ElCapitan22 (343) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Pours a clear, but darker gold color. Has a piney, hoppy aroma. Tastes surprisingly sweet for an ipa. It is definitely pine forward in its taste. If I look hard, I can find small ginger spice in the end of the taste. Very bitter and tasty. Like this!

Diabobale (468) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - DEC 20, 2015
Un’ipa "natalizia", speziata con zenzero e con aggiunta di aghi di pino (? mah), dal colore dorato, abbastanza opalescente e con un cappello di schiuma bianco e abbondante, non troppo persistente. Al naso forti sono i sentori di ananas, agrumi e verso la fine molto resinosi. Le note maltate quasi impercettibili. Entra con una buona carbonazione e il corpo molto nella media. In bocca si ritrovano, con una certa prepotenza le note citriche e sul finale di nuovo assai resinose. L’amaro è spinto ma non esagerato. Non troppo pulita e lineare.

Bottle from the Mikkeller Christmas Calendar. Cloudy dark golden, thick offwhite froth. Aroma has pine and grapefruit. Juicy, caramely and slightly resinous flavour. The juicy fruityness might be the ginger which otherwise doesn’t really show through. No wait... there is a pleasant spicy ginger burn later on. Finish is slightly sticky and perhaps a little too sweet.

Draft at the Gnarly Barley. Pours opaque orange amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like caramel malt, booze, grapefruit hops, resin, dried dark fruits, and light spice. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel malt, dried fruits, booze, light spice, resin, and grapefruit hops.

colui72 (713) - HONG KONG - DEC 15, 2015
Hazy orange/golden with medium creamy head. Aroma is citric and grassy. Taste is very delicate: pine, ginger, a perfect blend of sweet, tart and bitter flavour. Pleasantly smooth and slightly fizzy that enhance the flavours in the end. Enjoyable.
