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.

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!)

thirstyrabbit (1490) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle. Opaque golden body, very tall lasting head. Aroma has citric hops with mostly lemon peel and dry grapefruit. Body is medium, carbonation high. Taste has dry grapefruit and some lemon peel. Very dry, almost astringent. A bit unbalanced for me but I’m sure some folks will enjoy this. Pretty solid IPA, almost a DIPA.

rotaman14 (400) - Germany, lives in Vilnius, LT, - SEP 17, 2015
Hazy golden body, nice white head. Aroma is floral, caramalts, faint citrus. Candy like sweetness at first, then fruity hops, bitter finish, spicy and dry afteraste. Medium body, strong carbonation, which works for this beer. Odd, but... tasty. Very, even.

mile (3513) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish, light caramel and tropical/floral fruitiness, some grapefruit/ piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, grapefruit /piney hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, lots of piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Really well hopped dryish IPA - not too much caramel. Aroma could use more bitterness. Aroma and flavor are not in balance.

Copenhagen 2/9 2015. 50 cl bottle from Gunnar Madsens Vinhandel. Woman full of envy of people with functioning umbrellas on the label. Pours slightly hazy yellow with white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma og exotic sweet fruit mixed with citrus fruit. Lots of American hops. Fairly strong carbonation. Taste is pleasantly bitter. Grapefruit and acidic citrus fruit. Long aftertaste with semi-dry finish. Pleasant and easily drinkable IPA. And you do not need the umbrella with the dry finish.
