Hoppy Xmas


Festive IPA, 6%

Rating: 3 out of 5.

If you’re looking for a beer that screams “hoppy holidays,” look no further than BrewDog’s Hoppy Xmas! This festive beer is a celebration of hops and holiday cheer all rolled into one tasty package.

Upon pouring, Hoppy Xmas is a beautiful golden colour with a fluffy white head. The aroma is a delightful mix of piney and citrusy hops, with a hint of festive spices. As you take your first sip, you’ll be greeted with a burst of hoppy goodness, with notes of grapefruit, pine, and a touch of spice.

But this isn’t just any hoppy beer – BrewDog has taken things to the next level by adding cranberries and cinnamon to the mix, giving Hoppy Xmas a festive twist. The cranberries add a tart sweetness that balances out the hop bitterness perfectly, while the cinnamon brings a warm and cosy feel to the beer.

The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, with just the right amount of carbonation to keep things interesting. And despite the bold hoppy flavours and festive spices, the beer remains incredibly drinkable and refreshing.
