thirstyrabbit (1808) - Tallinn, - DEC 21, 2012
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.

33cl bottle. Hazy dark gold color. Thin white head. Taste is balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Aroma and flavour is ginger, hops, orange, soap, mango. Very balanced.

Bottle from Strasbourg Bière Import. Golden hazy color with foamy white head. Nose is Christmasy, pine, ginger and sweet. Aroma is light citrus with lots of herbal notes, finish is malty sweet and a nice hop bitterness. Very nice IPA for the holidays!

budedou (917) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 12, 2017
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.

m.mahu (186) - Iasi, ROMANIA - JAN 11, 2017
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.

Bottled. Hazy orange body with a thick white head. The aroma has pine and wood. The taste is good as well, it’s surprisingly pleasant.
