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...

Pours a golden honey unclear beer with a good with head. The smell is not very present. Grapefruit I guess. Taste is fruity, grapefruit. A very nice bitter finish. Dry texture abd good carbo. Bit low tho but not bad.

Bottle given to me for Father’s Day. Pours a rather just off cloudy golden colour, with a huge foamy white head, that diminishes rather quickly, leaving clumpy lace. Nose is super tropical. Tastes super sweet, nice roundness with the malt, really nice bitterness. Impressive.

Batch 654. Meilleure avant 08/2014. Cette IPA est blonde et sa tête mousseuse s’accroche pour laisser une dentelle en morceaux. Le nez aurait pu être mieux. Le malt s’est passablement transformé. Les houblons ont vieillis. Donc, caramel, miel, fruité faible et houblon herbacé. Au goût, les houblons montrent des herbes, des aiguilles de pin et des fleurs d’agrumes. En bouche, je note un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement normal et une texture qui m’apparaît huileuse. En arrière-goût, les houblons floraux s’expriment et compriment, tout de même, le chancellement des céréales maltées. Bien ridée, je soupçonne que cette IPA doit être bien délicieuse lorsque jeune.

neuromatt (1105) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours slightly hazy golden-amber with a small rocky white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of peppery, spicy, citric hops, along with tropical fruit and pale malts. The flavour is balanced between medium sweet with citrus, tropical fruit and honey on the one hand, and moderately bitter, citric-tropical hops on the other. It closes out with a soft but hoppy finish that lingers for a good while. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice delicate IPA that packs a decent dose of hops but without overwhelming. Actually fairly subtle. 2014-07-04

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2014
Gyllengul med vitt äggviteskum. Mycket grapefrukt och citrus i doften. Även smaken domineras av dessa smaker och ölen känns något endimensionell.

[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a cloudy golden-orange with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Some decent lacing. Aroma of floral hops and bready malt, lightly catty and with a good amount of fruit and some light sugary sweetness. Flavour is citrusy, fruity and hoppy -- enjoyable. Moderate bitter finish. Medium bodied. Well done, I quite liked it.

Bouquet of fresh, floral, seasonal hops. Looks are good: Cloudy, semi-transluscent amber body with a beige head with great retention. Flavor is sharp, crisp and grassy with a bitter aftertaste. Sharp feeling lingers in mouth many moons ago.

probstblueribbon (2864) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
500 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Clear orange-amber with a rocky, off-white head. Pungent, perfumed hops, a little orange peel, resin, cat pee, quite peppery, rich caramel backbone, a bit of fruitiness from the malt bill. Medium+ body with relaxed carbonation. Resin, cat pee, light tropical fruits and citrus, lemon-lime, pine, less malt character than the nose; dry with good bitterness and a somewhat dusty, resinous, cat pee finish. Very different from the bottle I shared with my bro. That one was quite sweet, almost cloying. Odd. This is good, not quite an ideal hop profile for my palate.

Pours light straw yellow with a small frothy white top and good lacing. Aroma is straw grains, floral and citrus hops. Taste is a nice bouquet of floral and citrus hops with some cereal grains. Great beer.
