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.

w_adwersarz (209) - Cracow, POLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Piana bardzo obfita, dość szybko się rozpadła, bąbelki średnie i duże. Później ani się nie utrzymuje ani nie krążkuje. Barwa wściekle pomarańczowa, lekko opalizująca, z niewielkimi drobinkami chmielu. Aromat cytrusowy, z przewagą grejpfruta, do tego lekka słodowa kontra. W smaku jest owocowo, cytrusowo, lekko drożdżowo, lekko słodowo ze średnią goryczką na końcu. Wysycenie jest średnie, samo piwo dość wytrawne i pijalne, takie sesyjne.

stefannilssons (1491) - SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Det här var en juste öl, aromen var fruktig med toner av tropiska frukter och apelsin. Smaken följde upp aromen på ett väntat sätt men med en obalanserad beska, tyvärr. Men på det stora hela så var det här en god öl.

tricksta_p (1342) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2014
Aroma of citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, grass, fresh hops. Flavour is light sweet with a medium bitter finish. I love fruity pale ales with lots of orange in the aroma, and this one hit all the right notes. Wonderful Session IPA.
