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.

Pours with a small white head. Hoppy aroma and taste with hints of citrus and pineapple, great level of bitterness. Great body with some malt behind the hops. Would like to raise the alcohol to about 6.5 to make it prefect! (Bottle of "swedish" version modern ipa)

daje (2329) - NORWAY - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle, labeled as Amager Modern IPA. Hazy orange body with a medium white head. Strong hoppy aroma of tropical fruits and pine, taste of grapefruit, peach, light sweetness, good bitterness, clean dry and bitter fruity aftertaste. Quite good.

kappldav123 (4883) - GERMANY - AUG 31, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Mild hoppy aroma. Starts dry-hoppy, mild bitter background. Notes of grapefruit, some lemon. Finish well balanced with bitter notes. Not bad!

sebletitje (6648) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014
Bouteille de 50cl, batch# 836, BB 08/2015. De couleur dorée-léger orangée, col blanc cassé crémeux. Arôme offre un bouquet agréable de houblon - sorte de renfermé et accompagné de notes de feuilles vertes, pamplemousse dans le style Cascade et d’une brève incursion d’aïl voire d’oignon en poudre qui sont caractéristiques du Summit. Palais est aussi axé sur l’houblonné, agrumes pour un fini sec et grains tirant sur le rustique. Herbacé, pointe d’agrumes avec un petit côté fruité melon en fin de bouche. Note aussi un profil houblonné de pellettes. Un léger fini sec houblonné herbacé type Hallertauer est aussi présent, possible que cela soit du au houblon Herkules. Malt reste assez basique mais joue son rôle pour cette version; cara-pils.

argento (156) - DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
stort glas, let skummende, orange perlende, smager som sur grape, kan ellers godt lide grapejuice, men men... den lette bitterhed i eftersmagen...nå men drikker resten...

planky84 (2105) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Orange and mandarin aroma- oozes citrus fruit. Citrus fruit explosion on the palate which segues into a rich, long bitter fruit finish. Excellent!

OOKPIKABLE (77) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Pours golden with dense white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Tastes of the same but quite bitter. IBUs perhaps ratcheted a bit too high for my taste. Bitter aftertaste.

pushkinwow (1999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Bright orangey amber with a creamy off white head. Light citrus and mango, some resin & pineapple, and oddly enough some lemon curd. Moderate carbonation and mild body, slightly bitter, fresh, bit cloying but good.

Zekada (119) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget (under the name "Modern IPA"). The nose has tones of hops, flowers and is very fresh. Pours pale amber or dark hazy orange with a medium white head. The taste is hoppy, fresh and light with a slight bitterness. Palate is light and crisp. Overall a solid IPA and a good beer.
