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…

The only sin was sending this IPA to America especially Vermont of all places.....fuck. Sample tried at the black back pub in Waterbury, Vt. Poured golden orange color. Bitter and overly sweet hops leading to an aggressive finish. Seems like they just crammed hops and malt into this thing without thinking it over. Ehh

ABS (449) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
Hazy amber. Some white head. Pine, resin and some alcohol nose. Thick mouth feel, low carbonation. A bit grainy. Quite bitter. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, resin, some malt flavour. A good IIPA.

NeoHippie2 (977) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Golden pour with a white head. Aromas of resinous hops, citrus, and some floral notes. Flavor is bracingly bitter hops upfront and it doesn’t let up. I could only handle one of these in an evening for sure.

Ernest (6198) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin), with notes of onion, alcohol, garlic, dried pineapple. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Full body, syrupy/creamy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic, lightly to moderately astringent. Blah...guessing there’s Simcoe in this...it’s got that icky onion/garlic odor and the rest is mainly resin. Syrupy/goopy sweet in the mouth with abrasive finishing dryness. This is a kitchen sink rendition, absolutely zero elegance or finesse, just a sledgehammer really. Totally not my kind of thing.

drsordr (1045) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle pour light gold. Nose pine, citrus, some mango fruit. Taste nice citrus bite up front. Some floral, then pine. Mild sweet late. Long bitter finish. Mostly brite and citrus flavors. Nose is really good, the taste while good, falls a little short of expected from the aroma.

logattogigi (44) - - MAY 3, 2014
Imperial IPA molto interessante. Colore ambrato/dorato, poca schiuma. Profumi molto intensi ed erbacei. Corpo pieno, resinoso, spiccato amaro. Sentori erbacei e maltati. Alcol ben amalgamato.

AdamJackson (2535) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Nose is great. Floral and honey forward. Taste is very dank, resinous. Bitter. Rough finish. Wish taste was as good as nose.

Vestergaard (314) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2014
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

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy dark gold with a slight white head. Aroma of celery. Med body or better. Flavor is sweet caramel over come by a load of earthy herbal hop. It finishes quite bitter.

Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours golden with a nice off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a bitter carbonated finish.
