COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Kast mørket af dig, slip gækken løs og byd lyset velkommen! Så enkelt kan budskabet i vores forårs-IPA ”Kåååd” opsummeres. Ikke mange ved dette, men en hel generation af Kobe-kvæg opfodres et hemmeligt sted på Amager med den mask, der bliver til overs fra vores ølproduktion. Da disse - verdens lykkeligste køer - åd masken fra lige netop denne øl, brød de ud i et jubel-muuh så højt, at det kunne høres helt inde på Rådhuspladsen. Køernes efterfølgende forårskåde bukkespring kom op i en højde så stor, at de lykkelige køer forcerede enhver indhegning og fortsatte dybt ind på Kalvebod Fælled. Siden har ingen set dem. Og hvad de laver derinde, kan vi kun gisne om... Men akkurat som Amagers hemmelige – og lykkelige - Kobe-kvæg, vil du kære livsnyder med garanti, bryde ud i spontan forårskååådhed, når du indsniffer den vederkvægende duft af frisk aromahumle, som Kåååd er pakket med. Tillykke med foråret – og gør nu ikke noget, som vi ikke ville have gjort...

English: Throw off the darkness, make merry and bid the light welcome! That is the simple message in our Spring IPA "Kåååd" (Frisky). Not many people know this, but there is a whole herd of beef cattle being raised in a secret Amager location on the spent grain from our beer production. This cattle herd, surely the happiest in the world, had barely tasted the grain from this very beer, before they let out a celebratory MUUH so loud that it could be heard all the way to downtown Copenhagen. The ensuing merriment in the herd caused a Stampede greater than any seen in Calgary in July. But one thing is for sure: If you, dear hophead, partake of this brew, you will become as frisky as our happy heifers as soon as you catch a whiff of the aromatic hops that we have jam-packed into "Kåååd". Have a merry old spring - and don’t do anything we, or the happy cattle, wouldn’t do...

Ingredienser: Vand, Malte: Pilsner-, Münchener-, Cara Pils og Melanoidin malt. Humler: Herkules, Tomahawk, Summit, Chinook, Simcoe, Centennial, Amarillo og Cascade. Gær: en amerikansk overgær.

Slightly unclear. Nice off-white head. Citrusy aroma. Well-balanced and fine taste. Delightful aftertaste and good drinkability.

To po prostu solidna IPA, która mogłaby stanowić wyznacznika gatunku. Pyszna, wytrawna, pijalna jak diabli, ale bez choćby odrobiny szaleństwa.

Best Before: February 2016 Batch: 761 The beer pours a hazed golden colour with a bubbly light tan coloured head. Aroma is light citrus, grapefruit, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is light grapefruit, juicy fruit, and grains. Good and refreshing.

jercraigs (8006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
2014-11-01. Hazy dark orange, nice foamy off-white head. 3+ Aroma of orange citrus, light green hops and lightly grainy malt. Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, lightly resiny orange hops, green hops and oily orange peel in the finish linger in the aftertaste. Some nice hop character but it all sits a touch more heavily than I’d like. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. 3+ I wonder if the hops might have been "brighter" a bit fresher? I have had this bottle for a while despite the best before date being in 2016! Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

robinvboyer (3212) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle from the lickbow. Hazy orange pour, with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is skunky, with loads of pine resin, and biscuity malts. malts get pretty crackery in the end, and the hops fade a d go more towards the citrus zest side than strong resins. A nice beer, would love to try it fresh.

metalspice (102) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2014
Gyldent mot Orange med skum som beholder en tynn topp over lang tid. Nydelig lukt med masse grapefrukt og ananas. Grapefrukten følger i smaken med mye bitterhet. Kort ettersmak.

Sept. 5, 2014. Bottle from LCBO. Orangey, yellow colour; white head. Nice lacing. Lovely citrus grapefruit aromas, with a hint of pine. Similar flavours. Quite hoppy, but still nice. Great label.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Cereal yellow and nice-smelling IPA with the vinousity of a much stronger beer. Not very special apart from the vinousity - quite anonymous.

Strangebrewer (891) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
bottle. Poured hazy pale amber with a thin creamy off white head. Big aroma of fresh citrus hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation with an acidic bitter end. Flavour is mostly hoppy, herbal and orangey citrus notes with bready pale malts.

sudomorph (692) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a nearly clear, orange/caramel with a two finger, fluffy, off white head. Aroma has great, juicy notes of pine, resin, orange citrus, and hints of more tropical fruits. Taste is bitter with resin, citrus, herbal/earthy grass, stone fruits, and a piney, bitter aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a soft carbonation. Overall pretty tasty. Pine, resin, citrus, and an earthyness.

Kauge (223) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle from Nõmme Comarket (€ 7,11) in Sept 2014. Batch 777, BB 03/2015. Pours hazy, bright orange with big frothy head that retains and laces well. It has a nice fruity and resinous aroma, I get some peach, marzipan, musk, pine... Taste is equally good with resinous bitter and peachy sweet aspects most present. It’s more sweet at first, and citrusy bitter in the finish. Body medium, carbonation minus medium, palate a bit dry. Overall a very good sweet IPA though I kind of expected more. Will probably not buy again.
