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.
