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!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2016 From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. Watching Captain America First Avenger. Tropical fruits, with some citrus bitterness, subtle orange touch and a very big body for the style, similar to a DIPA. Invites to long sips

BrettGT (86) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2016
On tap @ Basement Beer Bar. Aroma of caramel, oranges, grapefruit, a bit of lemon peel. Pours light orange, small white pillowy head. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium to light body, easy drinking, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Didn’t seem super fresh, but still a fine session IPA.

romanstep (119) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 21, 2016
W nosie głównie cytrusy: mandarynka i pomarańcza oraz owoce tropikalne: mango, melon, na drugim planie trochę karmelu i ciasteczkowości. Barwa pomarańczowo-bursztynowa, prawie klarowne, piana drobna, w kolorze ecru, długo się utrzymuje. W smaku gorzka pomarańcza, owoce tropikalne, żywica i ciut karmelu. Goryczka średnia w kierunku wysokiej, dość długa, ciut łodygowa. Wysycenie średnie. Podsumowując bardzo dobra, soczysta APA. Butelka do 02.2017

gr_pa (292) - siemianowice, POLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Cloudy orange with some hops swimming inside, nice head. Aroma: orange, citrous, quite sweet, some maltyness. Medium sweetness, medium body. Lots of orange in taste. Heavy, long, metalic bitterness, which is biggest disadvantage. On the other hand very nice addition of orange peel.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Rated on 5-08-2016 at 800 Degrees Three Fires, Fort Wayne, IN. (Draft) The appearance when served is a small frothy ivory head with a long retention, transparent amber body, very little carbonation observed, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, orange, tropical fruit, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, orange, and some malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very drinkable session beer with a moderate bitter fruity aftertaste. This is a beer worth trying and a beer that I would partake in again.

thedm (5433) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2016
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a very small sized head of frothy finely sized white colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent light orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The funky aroma was hoppy and orange. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of bitter orange crisp and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
