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

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 From tap at Ørsted. Pours cloudy to hazy orange with a fully gone head. Peachy and mild citrusy hops aroma, inviting and smooth. Solid grapefruit and peach hoppy flavoured with a solid bitterness yet just enough balance from the light sweet caramel malt base. Lasting peachy and fruity hoppy finish. Very elegant brew. Version 2 is quite similar, yet with a more pronounced bitterness and light liqourice like note. Somewhat more floral in the far finish.8-3-8-4-16=3.9

Ungstrup (29848) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2009
Draft. A murky golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty with hoppy notes that also lends it some spices. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as light notes of grapefruit, leading to a bitter citrusy finish. OK, but I’d expected more hops from an IPA from Amager.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Pours hazy and opaque amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Fantastic peach aroma from the quality hops. Quite full-bodied with a lightly sweet caramellish malt base, but otherwise completely dominated by the distinct hop profile that leaves a very solid bitterness. 270109
