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!

Very hoppy aroma, citrus, berry, fruit and flowers. Pours golden, clear with little head. Bitter taste with tones of citrus, grapefruit and honey. Medium body, lively, long after taste. I love Labradors and this is their beer.

suurjuust (2582) - ESTONIA - MAR 11, 2016
Almost clear golden amber pour, medium retentive white head. Nose is a fruity mix of peaches, mango and citrus, toasty malt, some sweetness, plenty of hops. Flavor is plenty hoppy, sweet and fruity. Pine resin in the finish with medium hoppy bitterness, some warm booze. Lingering booze, malt and citric hops. Pretty Amager-y, which is not a bad thing, but lots of booze.
