COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: For nu at være helt ærlige, så var det slet ikke meningen, at vi skulle brygge sammen med Cigar City Brewing I år. Men vi fik en mail fra brygmester Wayne Wambles, som skrev: "Hej allesammen, jeg kommer til Copenhagen Beer Celebration igen i år, skal vi ikke brygge sammen?" Og da Wayne ikke blot er en af de mest sympatiske personer i ølverdenen men også en af de dygtigste og mest innovative, ja så var der ikke så meget at betænke sig på, selvfølgelig skulle vi brygge med Cigar City også i år!
Øllen vi landede på blev "Orange Crush" en såkaldt Session IPA - lav i alkohol og potens, men med super høj drikkelighed. Kraftigt tørhumlet med de mest saftige amerikanske aromahumler: Citra, Mosaic og Simcoe - og så med en særdeles solid dosering af vores hemmelige ingrediens, en super velduftende variant af tørret appelsinskal fra amerikanske appelsiner.
Orange Crush er tænkt som en tørstslukker, og vi er næsten sikre på, at du vil kunne li’ den. Og Wayne, du er velkommen til at kigge forbi når som helst!

English: To be totally honest, it wasn’t really part of our plans to brew a collaboration beer with Cigar City also this year. But we received a mail from head brewer Wayne Wambles saying: "Hey guys, I’m coming back for the Copenhagen Beer Celebration, why don’t we brew a beer?" And since Wayne is not only one of the nicest persons in the craft beer world but also one of the most innovative and skilled, it was an easy decision to make room in our schedule for another Cigar City collaboration. The beer of choice turned out to be "Orange Crush" a so called Session IPA - low in alcohol and potency, but high in drinkability. Heavily dry-hopped with the juiciest of American aroma hops: Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe and a solid dose of our secret ingredient, a super fragrant brand of American orange peel. Orange Crush is a bit of a quaffer - we’re almost certain, that you will like it. And Wayne….you’re welcome back anytime!

Ingredienser: vand. Malte: Pale, Crystal, Cara-pils. Humle: herkules, Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic. Tørret appelsinskræl. Gær: US-ale.

Flaske: Mudret orangegul farve med et stort skumhoved. Superduft af orange med et godt crsh i. Smagen sidder lige i skabet. Virkelig lækker og drikbar øl.

rouhlas (136) - GREECE - SEP 25, 2014
500 ml bottle at home. Hazy orange color with nice white head. The aroma is huge orange the first moments after opening the bottle. Later the orange fades and other hoppy notes takes precedence, like pine and light floral. Taste is bitter, more bitter than I expected, bitter hoppy with notes of orange and a lot of pine. Spicy flavor too. Medium body, oily, average carbonation, long bitter and spicy aftertaste.

Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and a little crisp. Light airy malts, mildly sweet. Nice hops that start piney and then morph in to good fresh orange with lesser peel and tangerine. Hop spice. Finishes airy and crisp. Nicely joined up and drinkable.

Flaska beer ditch - grumlig och mörkgul med vitt skum. Doftar fruktigt med en försiktig beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bra kraftig IPA med tydliga frukt och humle inslag både i arom och smak. Bra balans och fyllig kropp.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2014
Bouteille 50cl, batch# 823, BB 08/2015. Ambrée, col crémeux. Arôme offre un bouquet prenant de houblonnage à cru et de citronné, orangé le tout légèrement poussiéreux. Le nez reste fort plaisant, avec un petit rétro nasal fruité, ici encore, orangé pelure avec une présence maltée offrant une certaine rondeur. Palais offre pour sa part, une belle pointe houblonnée restant dans un caractère agrumes voire pamplemousse. Un côté Simcoe qui semble ressortir plus en avant surtout au niveau amertume. Profil malté carapils, pointe de crystal, le tout étant sec/crisp. Fraicheur orangée arrivant en fin de bouche.

venom666 (355) - Alicante, SPAIN - SEP 8, 2014
Hazy orange color with lots of sediments and a white medium lasting head. Tons of orange and tangerine on the aroma, sweet citrus fruits and hops. Very juicy taste, orange peel, tangerine, tropical fruits and hops. Medium bodied and dry hoppy finish. Extremely refreshing and easy drinking.

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 6, 2014
bottle at baren i kronborggade 3. probably my favourite beer from a recent copenhagen trip. massively juicy aroma of orange zest, orange syrup, orange tree leaves, curacao etc etc; loads of bitterness, light vanilla sweetness, bursting with freshly peeled orange. my palate was pretty jaded by this stage of a long day of tasting and this was the perfect pick-me-up
