COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Det siges at Kain dræbte sin bror i ren og skær misundelse. På Amager Bryghus mener vi måske nok, at drab er at gå lidt for vidt. Men vi indrømmer at vi er misundelige. Misundelige fordi vi ikke var de første til at brygge den øltype, som vi beundrer mest: en sprød og humlet West Coast IPA. Vi slår altså ikke nogen ihjel, fordi vi ikke var de første til at komme på idéen, i stedet vil vi gerne præsentere ”Envy” – vores bud på denne øltype. Vi er ydmyge – og dog misundelige.
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne 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.

coempa (18) - Reeuwijk, - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle from Beershop De Molen @home. Pours clear dark blonde with a medium white frothhead, good lacing. Very hoppy and citrusy to the nose. Aroma is strongly that of citrusy, bitter hops. Aftertaste is very dry and bitter. Light body, carbonation is medium. Overall a decent IPA, though a little unbalanced.

Tognetta (659) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 27, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 Laranja escura, leve turbidez, espuma branca de boa formação e persistência. Aroma caramelado, abacaxi maduro, dulçor médio. Paladar de médio amargor e leve dulçor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final de média persistência, com amargor prevalescendo, mantendo o dulçor de fruta madura, malte fica mais evidente.

romanstep (119) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 19, 2016
W nosie średnio intensywnie, na pierwszym planie cytrusy: cytryna i grepfruit, na drugim żywica. Aromaty bardzo rześkie i czyste. Barwa złota, niemal klarowne, ładna wysoka, drobna piana. W smaku jest naprawdę dobrze, piwo jest wytrawne, z dużą ilością cytrusów, głównie grejpfrut, po cytrusach mamy solidny ładunek nut żywicznych. Kontra słodowa jest na minimalnym poziomie o biszkoptowym charakterze. Goryczka konkretna, długa, żywiczno-grepfrutowa, lekko zalegająca. Piwo w ustach jest dość gęste, wysycenie średnie. Solidna, klasyczna West Coast IPA. Bardzo dobre. Butelka do 09.2016.

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 (5729) - 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.

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.

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.
