Danish: Her på Amager ligger vi behageligt langt fra Janteland, vi er ikke bange for excesser og mådehold ligger os uendelig fjernt. Faktisk er det lige før, at vi betragter frådseri som en dyd snarere end en synd – i hvert fald når det handler om én ting: humle! Vi har fundet de humler som skinnede klarest i humlerummet og nærmest tiggede om at blive brugt i rigelige mængder. Og det gjorde vi så – som det sig hør og bør i en Dobbelt IPA af højeste karat. Vi har frådset i syndig grad – og vi kan li’ det! Mon ikke også du kan?
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det...

English: At the Amager brewery we are comfortably situated far away from small-town modesty; we are not afraid of excess, and the term “moderation” is simply not found in our vocabulary. To us, gluttony is considered a virtue rather than a sin - at least when it comes to one thing: hops! While making this beer we targeted the hops which shone brightest in our hop room, as if they were almost begging to be used in copious quantities. And that is what we did, as befits a Double IPA of the highest caliber. We have squandered to a sinful degree - and we love it. And we bet that you will too!
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

Hazy light orange color, medium white head. Sweet malty and fruity aroma with notes of orange, biscuit and some strawberry. Taste has similar notes, it is mostly sweet with heavy hoppy bitterness in finish. Medium body and average carbonation, alcohol is well hidden. Great sweetness and bitterness balance, nice fruity IPA.

Cunningham (5326) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2014
Appearance: Misty golden color with a fine thick white head that leaves an ok lacing.
Aroma: Grapefruit hoppy, rich fruity and a bit sweet malty.
Palate: Medium to full body. Slightly sweet and a nice bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Grapefruit/citrus hoppy, rich fruity and malty.
Overall impression: Tasty and balanced dipa. I would personally hoped that the hoppy notes were more dominant than the fruity notes. Definitely a beer I would drink again, but not my favourite.
Personal stats: Bottle from Systembolaget in Strömstad, Sweden.

500ml bottle. Clear amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Hops, alcohol, sweet, fruity aroma. Sweet, hops, fruity taste. Mild sweet-bitter aftertaste. Well balanced and very easy to drink.

500ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Super fruity DIPA aroma, sugary malts, sugary fruits. Smoothish body, sweet. Very heady and zesty retronasals. I mean *really* heady. This is not a beer for swallowing, this is a beer for floating around in the mouth. Burps pure fruit juice - yay! Finish is a bit like baltic frontier, and it’s sharp and fruity. Full, heady, potent, warming, welcoming, enveloping... Yes, you could drown yourself in this. Harshness in the taste of the aggressive bitterness is cancelled by the fact that the sweetness makes it so damn soft. Palate obviously very sweet and smooth, but it’s nice.

My Bottom Line:
Towering conifers and sticky honey move into citrus candy and floral notes in this very pleasing hefty brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam clings to the misty honeyed gold.
-Alcohol heat is felt throughout.
-This is very much in the American mold.
-The best before, as in many Amager brews, is exaggerated. This tastes about a year old which, for a Double IPA, is not optimal and there’s still 1 year left to it according to the label...

Bouteille de la batch 590 meilleure avant le 04-2015. Un liquide orange avec une mousse blanche durable. Un nez bien malté, sucré avec des notes de houblons américains tirant sur le savon. Une bouche piquante, forte avec des saveurs de menthe. La finale est très amère et elle pique le bout de la langue.

Une bouteille de 50 cl. Batch 590. Meilleure avant avril 2015. Citron, épices, sucres maltés, aiguilles de conifères et fruits du verger s’infiltrent dans mes narines qui sont bien ravies. Ça sent le cou d’une Berbère qui croque une pêche dans une forêt boréale. Disons qu’il y a pire comme fantasme. Au goût, la première impression est celle d’un agrume d’un nouveau monde, faiblement épicé et légèrement caramélisé, avec des notes forestières plutôt dociles. En bouche, j’ai la sensation d’un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement bas et une texture plutôt huileuse. La finale, qui ne se joue pas dans la grande sécheresse, se fait sur des notes de pamplemousse et de fines notes résineuses. Super facile à boire. Aucune trace du 9.4%. Savoureuse.

Piney bitter harsh. Balanced strong smooth. This is where double IPA is going. A beer for the next generation of beer lovers. Expect more and get less is not the motto here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
