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

esox (969) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Bottled. Dark amber color, creamy and lacy head. Citrusy nose, apricots, mango, some resins. Surprisingly roasted, almost smoky maltiness. Dryish maltiness, slightly thin finish, resiny and lingering finish. Medium body. Ok but not very fresh.

Foffern (1061) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2013
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. The colour is slightly hazy amber with a khaki creamy head. A bit faint aroma but feels malty along with caramel and grassy hops in the background, and some wet cardboard and red currant. The flavour is also pretty malty and sweet with rye bread and lots of grassy hops in the aftertaste. Slick mouth feel, and has a medium to heavy bitterness. A rich IPA and a hop heads dream. Could maybe be a bit more balanced in my opinion.

MrHangover (2139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber beer with a small, light white head on top. Aroma has "Hops" spelled in it’s fume.. wow.. Full of piney hoppy resins and spruce and grapefruit are joining in the fun as well. Awesome aroma, one of the best smelling IPA’s ever. Flavor is as I’d expected it to be and even better. Full hoppy bitter taste, influences of the citric sides, juicy limes and dry grapefruit. Very dry finish, mouth wrangling.. awesome beer!!

Vaiz (3140) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Hazy copper pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma is spicy hops, some black tea, laurel, resin and plants. Flavor is bitter hops, quite dry and spicy. Nice body, but a bit out of balance.

TET (1430) - FINLAND - MAR 9, 2013
A reddish brown, beautiful beer with a quite big and yellowblond head. Aroma is great, tropical fruits, papaiyas, passion, mangos, some fructose and citrusfruits. In the beginning a taste is highly bitter, some tropical fruits, papaiyas, lots of pine needles, some resin. The slightly fructose maltyness is balancing the high bitterness. The aftertaste is long, dry and piney. Almost full bodied, still fresh, nice and smooth to drink. A very tastefull, highly bitter, tropical fruitsallad served in the resiny pineforest. The great IPA!

Pours golden orange with brown hues and a small off white head. Nose is grapefruit, caramel, pine needles and hints of berry. Taste is sweet with a great bitter presence. Super tasty. The mouthfeel is sticky and the body is medium with a long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
