Danish: Begrebet "ølhund" er meget veletableret i hele den vestlige kultur, og den seneste hundevidenskabelige forskning etablerer da også, at hunde sætter endog særdeles stor pris på øl. En helt ny afhandling går skridtet videre og dokumenterer de enkelte hunderacers præferencer for bestemte øltyper. Pekingesere er f.eks. til Radlere med cola, Rottweilere elsker at dyppe snuden i en heftig Imperial Stout, mens Beagler ikke er kommet stort ud over guldølsstadiet. Men så er der jo hunderacen, som står vore hjerter nærmest, fordi den er stor, godmodig og ofte en kende velnæret - ikke helt ulig os her på Amager Bryghus. Vi taler naturligvis om Labradoren. En race, der fuldkommen som os bare ELSKER velhumlede Imperial IPA’er, i en sådan grad, at de ligesom os bare bliver ved med at drikke til de går i et temmelig bedugget humlekoma. Til Labradorens ære har vi brygget netop deres yndlingsøl, en fed, fed Imperial IPA, som er så tætpakket med humle, at den nærmest savler ud over glaskanten. Vuf!

English: The concept of the “ale hound” is well established throughout Western culture, and unsurprisingly the latest canine research shows that dogs are extremely appreciative of beer. A recent dissertation takes this one step further and documents the preference of individual breeds for specific beer styles. The Pekingese, for instance, are into Cola Radlers; Rottweilers like dipping their snouts in a hefty Imperial Stout; whereas Beagles have not evolved beyond the Strong Lager stage. But then there is the one breed that is dearest to our hearts, because it’s large, kind, and often quite well fed – much like the staff here at Amager Bryghus. We are, of course, talking about the Labrador Retriever. These are dogs, which – like us – simply LOVE a well-hopped IPA, and just keep lapping it up till they slip into a hop-induced coma. In honor of the Lab we have brewed their very favorite beer: a fat Imperial IPA, jam-packed with hops virtually drooling over the rim of the glass. Woof!

500ml bottle from Boxbeers. Batch 1325, BBE 05/2017. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma of sweet juicy fruits, caramely malts, pine, resin, toffee and citrus. Taste is sweetish, juicy fruity and floral hoppy with some citrus, pine, resin and grapefruit, hints of caramel. Finish is resinous, piney and hoppy with some caramely malts, citrus, grass and hay. Pretty good.

PabloZab (1109) - Wroclaw, POLAND - AUG 8, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2016 Tap (Targowa, Wroclaw). Golden, hazy colour with big head and nice lacing. Tropical fruits in aroma. Tropical bitterness, high but quite short in time, note of sweet vanilla, malty, full body with small note of alcohol, burns a bit in the throat but quite drinkable for this power.

@ Stordirren 16-7-18: fyllig smak med toner av humle, mogen frukt och malt. Malt och bröd i undertonen som kanske tar över något.

Batavi (350) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2016
Laatste IPA tijdens de proeverij in de Vinotake in Waalwijk. Mooie licht troebele oranje kleur met een kleine witte schuimkraag. Super verse IPA aroma's van: grapefruit, perzik, honing, tropische vruchten als mango en passievrucht. Het smaakpallet is fruitig en in balans, met tonen van grapefruit, pijnboom en een honingachtige zoetheid, en een lichte kruidigheid in de afdronk. Een heel verse Imperial IPA, waarin de verschillende hopsoorten heel mooi in balans zijn. Weer een interessante brouwerij uit Denemarken, waar meer bieren van geproefd moeten worden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yet another lovely IPA from Amager. Sweet nose of berries, honey and tropical fruit. Tastewise notes of sweet grape fruit, tropical fruit and a pleasantly bitter finish

Loved this one. Bag loads of pine and tropical fruits. Thick and syrupy, moderate bitterness. Just what I enjoy from an IPA. Great.

Kita (1873) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 3, 2016
Bottle, 0.50l, shared with Leo. Pours cloudy amber color with thin soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, caramel and resin. Taste starts with medium sweet biscuit, caramel malt and resin, follows by refreshing fruitiness and pine, mouth coating and warming alcoholic feeling, while finish is heavy bitter. Full body, syrupy texture and average sparkling appearance. Barking like a dog after this labrador...

Dark IPA. Very resiny. Loved this, but maybe I prefermore the traditional Amager IPAs, with more citrus and tropical fruits forward. Anyway it’s a lovely DIPA, very bitter and balanced.
