COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Glem alt det der med at India Pale Ale er en engelsk øltype, der skulle være robust nok til at kunne tåle den lange sørejse fra England til Indien. Vores udgave af en IPA er helt og aldeles inspireret af de nyfortolkninger, som man især finder på den amerikanske vestkyst. En solid maltbase kombineret med humlerne Simcoe, Amarillo og Cascade og så lige tørhumlet også for at sikre, at humlen brænder ordentligt igennem. Det er frugtigt og friskt, det er bittert som ind i helvede og det er stærkt nok til at give dig en lille bimmelim på, hvis du drikker et par flasker eller tre. Sådan laver vi en rigtig IPA på amarkansk maner. Vi er ikke et sekund i tvivl om, at du vil nyde Amager IPA, for det er sgu’ godt øl. Skål!

English: Forget about India Pale Ale being an English beer, which should be robust enough to withstand the long sea voyage from England to India. Our version of an IPA is totally inspired by the new interpretations, especially those found on the U.S. west coast.
A solid malt base, combined with Simcoe, Amarillo and Cascade hops and then just dry hopped enough to ensure that the hop burn is thorough. It is fruity and fresh, it’s bitter like hell and it is strong enough to give you a little kick if you drink a couple of bottles or three.
This is how we make a great IPA at Amager. We don’t have a single doubt that you will enjoy our IPA , because it is a damn good beer. Cheers!
Ingredients: Water, barley malt , hops, and yeast

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear amber coloured with a nice lacing off white head. Clean and crisp aroma with notes of pine, citrus fruit, caramel and grapes. Great! Clean flavour with notes of sweet malt and aromatic hops. Super simple (yet hard to make). Clean, crisp and balanced. Awesome brew!

JanVittrup (243) - København V, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2010
Nice and fine foam. Unclear. Balanced towards bitterness, with some malt. Aroma malty, simple warm hop, and water? Medium to thick body with fizz. Not really interesting. Anonymous. Purchased at Ørsted Ølbar. Tap.

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Papsoe (unlabeled). Pours a hazy reddish brown color wioth a medium frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of beautiful citrus and floral hop notes with a sugary caramel note in the background along with a vegetal twinge. Taste is bitter earthy, resiny hops with plum, berries, strawberries and other fruity notes, along with caramel. Medium bodied, smooth with not much lingering bitterness, fairly strong carbonation.

500 ml bottle @ Maltainen Riekko, Helsinki. Cloudy amber color, nice firm tan head. Woody hop aroma. Bright piny hop flavor with a hint of resin and some sourness and a big hop kick. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. Nice.

Ober (2809) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2009
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of a lot of hops with fruits like citrus, grassy too. The taste is dry bitter of all the hops with fruits. The flavor goes from some sweet too te bitterness, The bitterness in the aftertaste stays for a while.

Finn (4141) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2009
Flaske 0,5 l fra bestillingsutvalget til Systembolaget. Dyp orangebrun på farge. Et høyt luftig skum som fester seg til glasset og varer. Sterk og god aroma av citrusfrukter. Uklart. Smaken er velbalansert og avrundet: Sammensatt fruktig med grapefrukt i forgrunnen. Det bygger seg opp en tung bitter ettersmak som varer i det uenderlige. KI=6

[On tap at Carlsens with Bo.] Great haze look and wonderful fluffy lasting head. Pines, grass, grapes, pills, citrus, amounthops, malt and a good felling of eating lawn for breakfast.

harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2009
Bomber from De Molen. The aroma is fantastic. I haven’t got anywhere near this yet, but the hop aroma invades my kitchen. Fresh creamy hop aroma. However, not sure I like the aroma, that much. Oh dear this just falls away in a really bad way. I spent a lot of money in the De Molen shop, and sometimes when you buy beers that you haven’t had they don’t turn out quite how you wanted. This has a lot of hops, but not really in a good way. Really falls away in the hops towards the end. Decent hops. Good caramel. Decent aroma, but then the hop in the mouth is just too bitter and unbalanced. It just is too bitter without any balance.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2009
Bottled 500ml. Very nice appearance: Deep murky ruby. Foam just kept creeping out of the bottle. Impressive head retention. Wonderful hoppy nose which is mostly reminiscent of quince. Complex tatse with a good hop profile. Liquorice allsorts, sweat and mint sneaking in. Good lacework. A bit harsh. Peppery on the swallow. Nasturcium, hops and licorice in the finish. Poor mouthfeel. There is a slight "spring onion charateristic" in the taste which is disturbing.
