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.

bb (6695) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Amber beer with a nice cream head. Grapefruit and pine aroma. Grapefruit and pine flavor with light malt backing. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and pine lingers with light malt backing.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit hoppy notes is enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by some citrus and grapefruit notes. There are also some light sweet malt notes that are discernable with medium bitterness in the aftertaste. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. This is a very good beer but like mentioned on the label, the recipe book was not rewritten.

vipinvelp (1885) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Gift from bartender at Six Roses. Golden yellow with small lacing white foam head. Very hoppy aroma with some banana tones. Tastes real bitter, like it. Lasting bitter aftertaste. (Lille 201404)

Renobob (452) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 1, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Grosse attaque sur l'amertume, un peu trop même à mon goût. Mais sinon c'est bien fait. Pour amateurs d'IPA.

freretoc (441) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 31, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 50cl, couleur blonde et mousse onctueuse, une bonne IPA des familles bien houblonnées avec une grosse attaque sur l’amertume et ensuite sur les fruits jaunes types pêches et ensuite ça continue sur le litchi pour finir sur la poire bien mûre, un régal !

stouby (3510) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle at DØE tasting. Clear yellow. Aroma medium+ hoppy (citrusy, grapefruit). Flavoe medium sweet, heavy bitter, light spicy, long duration. Medium, almost fat, body.

bartlebier (1168) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2014
UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 50cl bottle EU local swap, mange tak Enjoyit. Pours confident hazy yellow with soft pillows of eggwhite foam. Assertive aroma of lemon grass, ripe melon and fresh hay. Taste is likewise assertive, very much earsmear & pine of the brash Centennials, bitter herbs. This over-assertive bitterness and lingering pine finish in combination with the powdery yeast profile somehow conjure up spring flowers and pollen... Not a juicy citrus West Coats IPA by any means. A bit of a challenge to finish...envious in that cumulative sense of the undrinkability of big, bold and resinous IPAs?

TBone (11903) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Bottle at Beer Hunters. Clear golden color, good white head. Citrusy, grassy aroma. Medium-bodied. Straightforward citrus - grassy, lemony IPA. Grapefruity aftertaste. Amager quality brew for daily consumption.

suurjuust (843) - ESTONIA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Hazy orange yellow, off-white head. Hoppy, grassy nose, malt in the background. Taste is malts, caramel, grassy hops, fruity tones and herbal bitterness in the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. The herbal bitterness becomes almost astringent, distracting.

rederic (2883) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
500ml bottle, batch 641, with a slight hazy golden hue, and a bubbly white head, with a nice floral citrus, tropical fruit, leafy, grassy hoppy nose, with a mild bubblegum yeast, zesty lemon, grapefruit peel, lemon pie accent, and a light candied pale, pilsener malt note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a very good flowery soapy, tropical fruit, citrus, leafy, grassy, piney hoppy character, with some bubblegum yeast, green grapefruit, grapefruit, lime zesty peel, lemon pie, lemon marmalade flavours, with a faint candied pilsener, pale, toasted malt undertone, leading towards a yeasty, fruity, good citrus, tropical fruit, leafy, grassy hop bitterness finish.
