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.

Draught. High fluffy white lasting head. Hazy dark yellow muddy looking body. Heavily carbonated fruity fresh with a solid malt base and a nice amount of hops bitterness. Long bitter finish. Refreshing and quaffable.

6.5%ABV.  IPA. Poured out of the bottle a light Amber.  10ºSRM. 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!

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.

kran w jabeer. na szybko: opalizujace z ladna acz szybko opadajaca i fajnie zostajaca na szkle piana. aromaty wlasciwie wylacznie chmielowe, sa glownie cytrusy, jakies owoce tropikalne i zywica tez ale w tle. w ustach wytrawne raczej, lekko kwaskowate cytrusowo, z dosc wysoka i dosc dluga (acz slowo "zalegajaca nie pasuje imho) goryczka. ze slodow - bardzo w tle herbatniki moze... srednio wysycone. dosc geste w konsystencji. bardzo dobre

Kita (1676) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l, shared with Boyan. Clear golden color with thin creamy white head, poor lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma is not intense, but tropical fruits and citrus dominate, while some floral and piney characteristics also present. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malt, following is fruity and resinous, while finish is heavy bitter. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. No need to be envious about this beer, because Amager made many better IPA’s...

__Rb81 (489) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle at home (batch 950, best before 01/2016). Pours clear golden amber with a white frothy head. Aroma of malts, hops, hay, hint of peach and citrusy fruitiness, probably a lot more pronounced fresh. Taste is bitter sweet, malts, resiny hops, hay, very dry bitter ending. Hoppy bitter, malty, aftertaste. Not bad, like to try this one fresh.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 9, 2015
Clear golden-orange (8EBC) with a frothy off white head, good lacings and somewhat viscous. Aromas of orange-grapefruit zest, pine, dank grass predominate yet subtle notes of herbal passion-fruit with a brisk caramel-hay undertone develops offering a hunch of young pineapple. A well balanced fine carbonation with a texture developping from light and thin to light velvety. Offers a pronounced yet elegant body. Some caramelised fruit sweetness up front builds the scene for a solid yet harmonic piney, resinous, fruity hop bitterness with a pleasant astringency. Lasting sweet-bitter and dry finish. Crisp and refreshing.

Achel (307) - Ioannina, GREECE - NOV 25, 2015
Pours golden yellow, cloudy with a small white head. Aroma is overload peachy. Slid peachy, slowly building grapefruity. Bone dry bitterness. Lingering fruity and solid hoppy into a dry and bitter, yet crisp fruity finish

not sure of the age on this one. lots of malt and acramel, with ample bitterness, and some pine and herbal hops. Not bad, but not a huge fan.

Lidt skuffende West Cost IPA. Den mangler smag. Der er noget malt, men ikke så meget humle. Jeg forstår ikke hvor de gode humletyper blive af. Lidt for bitter i forhold til sødmen, og lidt alkohol i eftersmagen. (Ved ikke om jeg har fået et kedeligt eksemplar. Amager plejer at lave gode øl!)
