3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small bottle. Cloudy golden amber body with a firm rocky head. Aroma and taste are similar to many other Mikkeller IPAs so it’s hardly offering anything new. The ginger in it must be masked by the hop bitterness because I can’t taste any. And pine needles taste like hops anyway, don’t they? Not bad for an IPA but it does not taste like Christmas to me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 Bottle. Feels like a mild, overly tamed IPA. The ginger is subtle, but at times feels too much. An ok beer, would however not have again.
