Danish: Julellet kan godt blive for sdt og kagekrydret. De volumise og fede retter den danske jul er kendetegnet ved, vil faktisk hellere have en sprd, humlet og frisk l. Hoppy Christmas er en 5,9 % IPA med masser af appelsin. Trhumlet selvflgelig.

No more sweet sticky christmas cakes bottled and labelled as the most appropriate for the season. Rich and fatty foods want hoppy, bitter and fresh beers! Its an orangy, lemony fresh IPA. Yeah, thats right we used a load of oranges! 5,9 % alk gives the beer just the right punch and the malty back bone mingles well with the aromatic and bitter hops. We used Chinook and Galaxy by the way. Dry hopped of course. Hoppy Christmas everyone!

Pours a clear and golden beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional tropical fruit. The palate is sweetness with some bitterness. Overall a good beer.

Rehkopff (73) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 26, 2017
Fantastisk IPA! Dejlig aroma, skøn rød farve, fint Hvidt skum. Og sikke en smag for humleelskere. Skal jeg sige noget negativt, er det at der intet jul er over den. Men den passer stadig perfekt til frokostbordet, eller som tørstslukker efter julemiddagen. Hoppy Christmas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hoprider (611) - DENMARK - DEC 29, 2016
Pours a clear light brown colour with a semi dense beige head that settles to a thin film. You can detect the mosiac but its not too fresh and neither fruity, dank or bitter. The orange is pressent if you look for it. Taste pretty malty with a bready and drying aftertaste. Was this christmas IPA bottled 2 months before christmas? I dont understand that..

Nothing christmasy about this IPA, but it is certainly crisp, fairly dry and a very classic IPA.
