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!

Strykzone (6632) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle. Deep golden beer with a big beige head. Sticky lacing. The final pour brought chunks of sediment. Earthy, juicy, fruity, and spicy hop aromas. Surprisingly big bitterness begins it. Grapefruit and orange zest. The sediment brought more fruity flavors and richness. Just a little of spiciness. It is earthy and oily. Nicely done.

Vestergaard (1644) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2016
Dunno why i haven’t written this rating in yet, but had this multiple times. This one from bottle, batch #1. Pours semi-Dark amber with lots of hop-haze and a small, White head. Aroma has lots of bitter hops, but also fruity peach, slightly unripe pear, citrus peel, pineapple, and then a hint of caramel. Taste is really bitter, and has a looooot of American hops. Same fruityness, but mostly citrus peel and peach. Again a hint of caramel sweetness. Really powerfull flavors despite the low alcohol. Crisp body and carbonation. Despite being a couple of months old, it’s really fresh. Excellent excecution!

Maxbier (881) - Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Cloudy cooper orange with sediment from the bottom and a creamy tan head. Citrus orange aroma. Piney bitter and orange citrus. Medium light malt character. Finish is more "orange crush". Tasty.

wlajwl (5673) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Aroma is citrus/orange, piney hops and light fruit. The flavor is citrus/orange, grapefruit, fruit, slight earthiness/funk from the sediment, thick for the style body and a bitter finish.

Well, I went to Prohibition Wines as the temperature hit 34C and asked for a beer for summer drinking, and this is one that Paul recommended. It is an amber colour with a white head and throws a heavy sediment, which may be orange peel rather than yeast. Aromas of malt and grapefruit. Taste has a solid malt base and hints of orange peel but is dominated by American aroma hops giving powerful flavours of grapefruit skin and pine resin. Good bitter finish. An interesting and individual Session IPA. Thanks for the recommendation, Paul!

weark (637) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Bouteille achetée Au PiBar - De couleur ambrée légèrement orange avec une mousse blanche cassé crémeuse qui tient convenablement - Au nez beaucoup de résine et d’agrumes, c’est puissant sur l’orange le grafruit, kumkwat, légèrement herbacé par le dry hop, et la resine qui revient, et en fin de nez comme de l’écorce d’orange ou un autre agrume superbe - En bouche toujours beaucoup de houblons, agrumes, résine et légèrement herbacé, tres peu de malt une puissante amertume soutenue par de l’ecorce d’agrumes ( sûrement orange), très peu de présence de malt malgré la couleur - Corp léger, amertume forte, carbonation correcte, légère et résineus, final amère herbacé et agrumes - Magnifique ca se boit sans fin, c’est parfaitement réalisé, pas haut en alcool parfait pour les grosses chaleur un pure coup de coeur

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball pour hazy avg gold with thin white head. Nose tropical fruit hop, light biscuit. Taste moderate bitter bite up front, then light fruit hop and moderate grainy malt. Taste more like APA than IPA or session.

Enteogenisk (144) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle in wine glass. Perhaps not the most exciting entry into the Cigar City portfolio but it is a good session styled IPA, that’s for sure. Which is nice if you are into that sort of thing. Pours orange with a finger thick white head. Aroma is that of bitter orange and the palate is reflecting it, with a rather interesting malt profile and a bitterness that goes a bit wild as the ABV isn’t really keeping up with it.
