COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Det siges at Kain drćbte sin bror i ren og skćr misundelse. Pĺ Amager Bryghus mener vi mĺske nok, at drab er at gĺ lidt for vidt. Men vi indrřmmer at vi er misundelige. Misundelige fordi vi ikke var de fřrste til at brygge den řltype, som vi beundrer mest: en sprřd og humlet West Coast IPA. Vi slĺr altsĺ ikke nogen ihjel, fordi vi ikke var de fřrste til at komme pĺ idéen, i stedet vil vi gerne prćsentere ”Envy” – vores bud pĺ denne řltype. Vi er ydmyge – og dog misundelige.
Vi er ikke stolte over at vćre syndere, men i det mindste er vi ĺbne omkring det...

English: Cain is said to have murdered his brother out of envy. At Amager Bryghus we believe that murder is taking things a bit far. However, we admit to being envious because we weren’t the first brewer to come up with the beer style we admire the most: a crisp and hopped up West Coast IPA. We won’t kill anybody because we didn’t come up with the idea first, instead we present to you “Envy” - our take on this style. Humble – yet envious.
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Brewed from: Pilsener and Munich malts. Hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe and Centennial and fermented with an American ale yeast.

Jamedra (722) - Hostivice, - OCT 20, 2013
Láhev 500 ml. Krásné chmelové aroma, připomínající exotické ovoce, s lehkým náznakem sladu. Pěna je středně vysoká, jemná, jasně bílé barvy a držící. Barva samotného piva je oranžová a kalná. Chuť je vcelku robustní, má silný nádech pomeranče ve středu a poměrně rychle a rázně nastupující finiš, jehož hořkost je velmi silná a držící na patře a u kořene jazyka. Celkově se jedná o velmi zajímavé pivo, s velmi lahodným aroma a příjemným vzhledem, nicméně chuť je vcelku ubita velmi silnou a rychle nastupující hořkostí, která také ubírá na pitelnosti.

Ottima birra, una spremuta di luppolo. Profumo intenso e grande persistenza. Una grande IPA danese da far crepare d'invidia a tanti produttori italiani

Beer5000 (5636) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
500 ml bottle. Slightly unclear pale golden body with a white head. Nice hoppy aroma with citric fruit and dominating grapefruit, some pale malt in the background. Favor is as expected mostly hoppy, the pale malt stays in the background and everything is basically about the hops, but it’s a good hop flavor here. Mainly grapefruit, some peaches, some pine and some orange zest and hint of lemon. The bitterness is good and it stays all the way through the pretty long lasting aftertaste. Medium body. A nice IPA, even if I normally prefer some more malt body to my IPA.

venom666 (744) - Elche, SPAIN - APR 3, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma is grepefruity, citrusy, piney and resiny, slightly dank and dry. Taste follows the aroma, tropical fruits, sweet citrus fruits, pine and yeast, with a very marked bitter aftertaste.

Bamsen78 (4769) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear amber with stable creamy off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and citrus, with hoppy and malty notes. Intense, bitter, hoppy flavour with crisp, citric notes and round, sweetish touches of fruit (orange peel?) and malt and some estery hints. Lingering, bitter, hoppy aftertaste with citric notes and estery hints. Medium to high carbonation. Well-balanced and decent.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - FEB 1, 2016
6.5%ABV.  IPA. Poured out of the bottle a light Amber.  10şSRM. Nose is floral brightness to it like freesias or magnolias.   The citrus character is bright and sweet and all about a beautiful ripe tangerine on the tree. Mouthfeel is soapy.   Palate has nice toasted malt, wheat toast, Wonder bread, caramel, burnt sugar, hard candy sweetness,  Hops are vegetal, pine, resin, sap and an almost rubber band like bitterness.  Finish is long and hyssop bitter. Goes on Favorites List!

ALIBALI (215) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2016
Da muss kein Neid aufkommen. Rundum gelungen. Maracujaexplosion in der Nase, phänomenale Hopfengranate für den Rest des Trunks. Und dann echt stark bitter am Gaumen (80IBU!!!!!) und das alles bei einem relativ niedrigen Alkoholgehalt. Respekt!!! Gekauft direkt bei der Amager Brauerei in Kopenhagen. 0,5 Liter Flasche ca. 5 Euro..... und jeden Cent wert.
