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...

Svesse (6885) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2015
(Bottle, as Amager Modern IPA) Pale amber colour with big, frothy, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, peaches, grapefruit, mandarin, tropical fruit, grainy malt and fresh, floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, mandarin, grapefruit, apricots, passion-fruit, slightly grainy malt and generous amounts of fresh, citric hops in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well made and tasty IPA with generous amounts of fresh hops. Very nice.

Geiserich (3676) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle from SlackerMads during European Swap 2/15, many thanks. Orang/copper with an foamy white head. Aroma with a lots of hops. Mainly notes of pine, pink grapefruits, citrus peel and herbs. Flavor is complex hoppy with fruity notes of tropical fruits, pineapple, lychee, pine and resin, rough herbal hops and herbal bitterness. Good, but I am not a fan of such a intensive herbal bitterness.

mcberko (9200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
On tap at Henrik Øl og Vinstove, pours a clear copper with a small off-white head. Nose brings out piney hops and crackery malt. Flavour is quite dry, with crackery malt and astringent piney hops. Quite dry and astringent. It’s pretty solid but I don’t get why this has such high ratings.

Rob_D_UK (1261) - Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
A murky dark copper pour with a white head. Very very strong hop aroma. Upfront bitterness that is lasting and then peaks again in the finish.
