COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Yes, this is a great IIPA, lots of body and a smack load of hops. Perhaps slightly primitive and lacking some of the charm other Amager beers have. But still a good beer.

500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear amber color. Medium size, white head, stays. Sweet, citrus, malty, caramel, bit farty in aroma. Sweet, citrus, fruity, orange peel, caramel in taste. Caramel, harsh citric acid and rotten fruits in aftertaste. Rough to drink.

FatPhil (12201) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 29, 2016
500ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Pleasant pineapple first in the aroma, then the nasty APA yeast comes over. Bland taste, sweet malts, some fruity hops, no real character at all. Pale orange, tight head. Finish sweet and alcoholic. Could probably light my breath after this. Bitterness in the finish is the only positive thing, but even then there’s a huge soapy aspect I don’t like. Wrong yeast used here, this is a horrible APA mess with added booze.

PapaVillum (765) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2016
Kobberfarvet Imperial IPA med ungefär 2 cm offwhite skumkrone. Ufiltreret og rolig i glasset. Tydelig og lækker frugtagtig aroma af appelsin og citrus. Harpiks-noter. Smagen er forholdsvis ukompliceret og ganske ligetil, IPA- og humlearoma-mæssigt. Klart bitter-domineret og balanceret med lille sødme. Pirrende. Stor fyldig krop med en frisk og sprød mundfølelse. Middel karboneret, olieret konsistens og afsluttes ganske bitter, nærmest besk. På etiketten er, under øltype, noteret: Imperial Canine IPA. Hvad ordet Canine betyder eller står for, ved jeg ikke, men velsmagende og enkel, det er den! 50 cl, flaske, 8.5 % ABV, batch#1158, BB: 10/2017, købt i Meny i Rødovre Centrum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
