December 1st and this is what was in my two X-mas calendars:
The Great Mikkeller X-mas Calendar
It's Blowing Half A Pelican / Det blæser en halv pelikan by Mikkeller
Nice straight forward NEIPA - smooth and fruity with a bit of a spicy feeling probably from the added rye malt - nice calendar beginning
My wife's homemade X-mas calendar
Surround Sound DDH DIPA w/Simcoe & Amarillo by Collective Arts - Huge hop aroma hits the nose right away - this beer is loaded with two of my favorite hops. Mouthfeel is smooth with a satisfying bitterness. Loads of Amarillo orange flavors and Simcoe pine flavors makes this a tasty hazy juicy experience
If I have to choose one of the two beers it must be Surround Sound DDH DIPA w/Simcoe & Amarillo by Collective Arts - it's more juicy and fruity than It's Blowing Half A Pelican / Det blæser en halv pelikan by Mikkeller. I liked both beers a lot and December is looking very tasty so far.
All through december I'm opening my two X-mas beer calendars. The two calendars are The Great Mikkeller X-mas Calendar and my wife's homemade X-mas calendar.
See you tomorrow!
