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…

Pours slight cloudy yellow-amber. Aroma is very floral and fruity. Lots of hoppy citrus. Taste is very bitter, almost minty. Perfume, strong floral fruity stuff. Rather prominent alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 23, 2014
Caña en el lúpulo el 23-04-2014. segunda vez para esta cerveza y segunda sorpresa. Imperial ipa muy buena con sabores amargos intensos que dejan un buen regusto, de lúpulo bastante seco, en boca durante un buen rato. Aromas maltosos y herbáceos con ligeros tonos cítricos. Ligeros sabores dulces de frutas maduras iniciales con maltas y cereales, seguidos de ligeros herbáceos de lúpulo que dejan un amargor seco en boca un buen rato. Cuerpo intenso y bastante pastoso, con unos maravillosos 9.6 vol. Color ámbar casi transparente con poca espuma blanca. Una gran imperial ipa para repetir y repetir sin dudarlo y con un gran amargor seco y ""áspero"" que dura un buen rato .

Bottle at Mallaskukko. Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma is intensive: citrus, gooseberry and mango. Medium-bodied to full-bodied. Grapefruity, mango fruityness. Intensive with long lingering bitterness. Warming alcohol. But drinkability is quite good.

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
500ml bottle. Whisky sour in colour with a slight wafer head. Interesting combination of alcohol, pine, orange and other citrusy hops and a nice malty backbone that seems mostly balanced although as the label states there is a lot of hops in this one and it is somewhat astringent. Moderate+ carbonation and full body, very slight hint of sweetness at first but then overwhelmed by a bitter, boozy and hoppy combination. Becomes dry with a citrus rind finish, pine and light booze.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2014
(Bottle) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with orange marmalade, apricots, caramel, passion-fruit, grapefruit and generous aromas of resinous, citric hops. Malty, fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange marmalade, pink grapefruit, passion-fruit, apricots, caramel and a solid citric, resinous bitterness in a finish with a slight alcohol bite. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness coming through. Quite bitter with an impressive hop presence backed up by a solid malt profile. Possibly not the most balanced beer I’ve tried, but very nice.

Bottle at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Small snifter shared with Zach and Brooke. Golden amber pour with slight haze. Thin white head. Serious pine and pine resin aroma with malt presence. The taste was straight forward hoppiness with pine, pine resin, malt balance, earth and fresh grass. Tasted very fresh. Mouth was bitter, but balanced at the finish. Moderate carbonation and medium body. Not boozy. Great DIPA.
