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)

Brewhemia (208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2016
Slightly hazy amber beer with white head. Rich and yummie aroma. Lots og piney and grassy hop aroma and some malty sweetness in there as well. Taste has a nice prickely bitterness that fills the palate. I love the pine flavors. Medium sweetness adds good balance.

Another excellent IPA from Amager. Perfectly constructed, heavy on the citrus with a pithy grapefruit bitterness. Lovely.

ALIBALI (782) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Muuuuh, mal wieder ganz heisser Stoff von den Amager Jungs. DIE FRUCHTGRANATE!! HOT AS HELL!!! Wunderbar umfangreich deckt der Trunk alle Nuancen der verwendeten Hopfen ab, mal grasig, dann würzig harzig und über allen thront immer die allmächtige Frucht. Besonders Grapefruit und Zitrone lassen sich klar verorten. Toll auch der nicht zu trockene, aber klar hopfige Nachtrunk. Spitze. 0,5l Flasche vom Supermarkt aus Aarhus. Ca.6€.

On tap. Hazy orange golden colour with a medium nice white head. Pine, malts, tropical fruit and citrus in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with caramel and fruity notes. Dry bitter finish. Overall, a good beer.

Idiosynkrasie (6524) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2016
500ml bottle [as Modern IPA]. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral and tropical fruity, hoppy aroma, fruit salad in fact, notes of peach, apricot, mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, orange, orange zest, a minimally waxy touch. Taste is bitter hoppy, fruity, some tropical fruit, some yellow stone fruit, some orange zest, slightly sweet caramel malty basis; lasting bitter finish with a minimally soapy and waxy touch. A stretto of fruit flavours in more literal than musical sense.

Pours a bright copper color with full head. Aromas of bready malts, oranges, pine and wine gums. Flavors of toasted malts, resiny pine, bitter fruit skins and toffee. Bitter almost grassy finish.
