day 22

X-Mas Hop

Origin: Brouwerij de Molen (Bodegraven, the Netherlands)

Style: “IPA-ish”

ABV: 6.8%

Notes: Surprise!  It’s another from Brouwerij de Molen!


It’s day 22 and I’ve resigned to the fact that the info on the Advent Calendar box is unreliable. I’d expected only “2x product of the Netherlands.” Perhaps I should just be thankful I haven’t had duplicates or missing beers as other Advent observers. Please, let the last two be unique beers.

There isn’t a lot of info on this “IPA-ish” offering. Not surprising since De Molen seems to enjoy making a lot of one-offs. The thing that caught my eye was the “Enjoy within 2 years” suggestion on the label.  I thought I was supposed to drink IPAs fresh. At least Pliny the Elder says I should.

As Christmas is drawing close, let me leave you with some festive, X-mas (hip)Hop music.
