COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Launched at EBF - the European Beer Festival, Copenhagen 2008.

Danish: De fleste kender efterhånden historien til hudløshed: ølstilen IPA er opfundet af en udbryderfraktion af IRA, som med russiske transporthelikoptere lod øllet fragte til Indien, hvor det med faldskærm blev nedkastet over de lokale basmatirisbønder for at opildne dem til oprør mod det britiske kolonioverherredømme. Her på Amager opmuntrer vi alle frihedselskende nationer, så vores irsk-indiske pale ale er brygget som en hyldest til dem. Amerikanerne piver altid over, at der ikke er nok humle i verden, så vi lod dem beholde den Amarillo, der skulle have været i denne og erstattede den med kinin og ferskenessens. Ligesom alt malt er erstattet af kogte basmatiris. Vi håber du vil nyde vores Festival IPA – den er ganske unik. P.S. Og hvis du siger vi lyver, så pas på: vi har venner i Holmbladsgade.

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
On tap @ Henrik. This is a blurry deep golden one with a nice medium sized really lingering and lacing white top. Soft floral and grassy hoppy nose. Not extreme in any way but quite gentle and nice. Light citrus tones and traces of caramel. Noticing that I have a tad to much perfume on me for beer rating. Tastes fresh and nice. Quite lightdrinkable with a light oily mouthfeel wrapped in a average carbonation level. Mild grassy, a good amount of bitterness here. Almost yeast bitter in a way but it’s not disturbing. A straight forward one, nothing special buy it’s a nice one non the less. 22.03.2014

ClubGonzo (4023) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a light orange slightly hazy body with a medium white head. Nose is resin, pine, nettles and hints of pale malts, grapefruit and pale malts. Taste is citric peel, herbs, grapefruit, resin and hints of pale malts and red fruits. Medium body and carbonation, semi-dry finish. A nice IPA with a bitter streak.

Hazy deep amber beer, little white head. Light hop nose. A little caramel malt dominated by hops. Strange hops! Appley with a trace of pear! There is a more traditional marmalade grapefruit in the finish. Quite a bitter aftertaste - a bit brutal in it’s aftertaste!

Koelschtrinker (10649) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 3, 2011
Fruchtig-hopfiger Geruch, deutlich nach Gras. Sehr grasiger Hopfenantrunk, schnell malzig werdend, nicht sehr stark aber merkbar. Die Hopfigkeit beinhaltet ab dem Mittelteil eine spürbare Bitternote, die aber nicht sehr stark ist. Vollmundig aber nicht ausschließlich hopfig, im Abgang sehr malzig, bitterer werdend. Absweschlungsreiches IPA! 12/12/11/12/Fl/12

Bottle; courtesy of the trading legend which is Papsoe. Man you are far too generous! Epic epic head, lovely soft texture, very earthy undercurrent, very murky, huge pinal and grapefruit aroma, are these the smells of Danish woodlands? I hope so. Some lovely candy and sweet malts, some lemon and some zesty orange peel. Taste is wow; big blend of fruits, mmm, grapefruit, citrus, oranges, lemons, some sweet candy, fantastic on the pallet, really succulent, pine some earthy notes at the bottom and wow just a great combination from a big bold ipa. This is classic don’t judge a beer by its appearance. Please this is outstanding. I am loving this. Wow. What a way to start my weekend. Thank you Papseo. The finish is medium-dry, also fruity, excellent lacing, world class even and a great soft gentle carbonation feel. Carbonation is excellent. What a great beer. Wow.
