Mikkeller Hoppy Lovin' Christmas 
Posted: 5 May 2015  Beer Republic 5.5 
Mikkeller Hoppy Lovin' Christmas from Denmark Another Imperial IPA from the folks at Mikkeller. This one is brewed with ginger an pine needles. Want to 'make it' with a reindeer over the next holiday season? Consider feeding your reindeer some of this. Want to 'make it' with a real woman? Don't serve her this.     
Avg price/liter: USD 21.18   ABV %: 7.8  Type: IPA   
       


Another Imperial IPA from the folks at Mikkeller.  This one is brewed with ginger an pine needles.  The front label shows what looks like a crew of perverts trying to seduce reindeer with mistletoe or some kind of pine needle.           

A beer with hoppy in its name is bound to be ... well, hoppy.  And Hoppy Lovin' Christmas is.  The promised ginger from the front label I couldn't taste at all.   I sipped two bottles of this and tried my damndest to taste it in the second.         

Maybe that's a good thing.   Ever had ginger beer?  It's great, but it's a different drink.  I'll never know what a beer with the right balance of ginger and pine needles tastes like -- not from Hoppy Lovin' Christmas anyway.         

Mikkeller has a s--tload of beers, some in the same category.  This one falls into the same category, more or less, as the Nelson Imperial IPA.  The Nelson, however, was much more subtle and balanced.       

Want to 'make it' with a reindeer over the next holiday season? Consider feeding your reindeer some of this. Want to 'make it' with a real woman?  Don't serve her this.
