COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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…

Klimaet (227) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Amager Bryghus tap takeover. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a thin longlasting white head. Aromas of malt, strong hops, caramel and lots of pines. Taste is the same very malty and piney with some caramel. Orange peel and grapefruit. Bittersweet finish with some saltø salmiak. Very nice but would have liked to tasted it earlier.

It doesn’t happen that often anymore, but sometimes I stumble upon a beer with such an amazing aroma that I get goosebumps. Gluttony is such a beer. The intense aroma is the perfect mix of a massive sweet caramel malty wall and a fruity hoppy overdose. I get delicious notes of overripe tropical fruits, mango and peach are in front, nicely backed up by crisp orange. The flavour is very strong and again very well balanced with the notes of the aroma. In addition I get pine, well integrated alcohol, and as the beer gets close to room temperature (I’m a slow drinker) I even get some sweet honey notes. It’s a close to full-bodied beer with a smooth and oily texture and a fitting soft carbonation. Absolutely fabulous!

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy west coast earthy hop aroma. Medium to abundanr body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a standout beer.

mansquito (3464) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 50 cl ($9): Pours orange wiht a white head. Aroma is a whole hock of tropical fruits (literally one hock). Sharp resiny feel to it as well. Tropical, but not so much citrus as it is other stuff. Taste is bitter and has a very distinct taste that I am somehow misplacing... something... perhaps passion-fruit. In any case, the bitterness is sharp and leaves a powerful aftertaste. Fortunately, this is not too sweet. I kind of agree with some that this is directionless in some sense. But as far as directionless beers go, I could imagine something much worse.

On tap at Amager event at Mikkeller Bangkok. Nice aroma, lots of hops. The taste is good, but a little to bitter for me.
