Danish: Denne Wookiee IPA er et samarbejdsbryg med californiske Port Brewings brygger Mike Rodriguez samt stifter og brygchef Tomme Arthur, der var en tur i Danmark den 9. marts 2011. Det er en ægte amerikansk Westcoast IPA, hvor der ikke er sparet på humlerne. Og der hersker ingen jantelov, når vi siger, at vi er stolte af denne øl!

Bottle from Slowbeer. Great hoppy beer. Aromas of caramel and grass. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a very long finish. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Dark yellow, with a big frothy head.

MPA (782) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 21, 2011
Awesome! Bottle at home in the garden. Beautiful amber with a white head. Aroma of apricots and lime with meadows lingering as well. Sweet, sweet flavour of apricot and honey finishing in a wonderful and increasingly solid bitterness which adds a lime impression. Best new beer I’ve had in 2011 so far.

500ml bottle. Bright orange colour with a big soft hea of white foam. Full flavoured with a long floral aftertaste left in the mouth. Long on the palate? This is a very good beer.

Bottle @ Cardinal. Pours copper in color with a nice off white head. Rich aromas of citrus and sweet malts. Flavors of mango and some citrus, and sweet malts. Great balance. Medium body.

Super bitter and I love it - grapefruit for sure and easy to smash down... Too easy at 7% - low malt big hops - fantastic - genuinely refreshing.

A thoroughly enjoyable IPA from two top notch brewers. They must have had a hop war (the beer geek version of a pillow fight) prior to brewing this. What they’ve made is a Danish East "Coast" West Coast IPA. The beer reeks of "because we can" cheekyness. And yet, it is all well balanced, not too much in any way, with fruity and bitter notes working together to make a splendid sci-fi geek/beer-geek marriage.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 (Re-rated on June 8th 2013; 50 cl bottle from Amager Bryghus; Batch 616; BBD: May 2014) Pours a semi-clear golden with rich, white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Good regeneration. Aroma has notes of citrus, pine and dill. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium body and a dry, astringent finish. Flavour is moderately hoppy bitterness, quite dry with little sweetness. Pleasant DIPA. (Re-rated on August 2nd 2012; Blind tasting of five different, hoppy Amager beers; Batch 476; BBD: August 2013) Pours a clear golden with rich, white head. Good retention. Aroma has notes of citrus and pine. Rounded and well balanced taste. Aroma: 10; App: 5; Taste: 9; Pal: 5; Overall: 18 (50 cl bottle from Toft Vin, batch 412, BBD: Feb’ 2013) For me spring came early this year with a new batch of the wookie. Pours a slightly hazy golden with finger thick, white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is this intensely pleasant mix of fir and fruit punch with lemony notes. Thick and rich on the palate, medium carbonation and full body with a long hoppy aftertaste. Taste is moderately bitter balanced off by the malt body that is pleasantly masked by the fruity hoppy aroma. Original rating on April 30th 2011 - (50 cl bottle from Amager Bryghus, batch 350) Pours a marginally hazy golden apricot with medium, white head that laces the glass heavily. Rich and extremely pleasant floral, hoppy aroma with well balanced notes of passion fruit and grass. Hits the palate with soft carbonation and a rich almost creamy texture and a long bitter finish. Taste is full-bodied with notes of bitterness but very pleasantly so and richly complemented by floral and fruity notes. This was my first encounter with the Citra hop, but certainly not the last. (Aroma: 10; App: 5; Taste: 10; Palate: 5; Overall: 18)
