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…

Shared bottle @ Cardinal. Pours golden with a nice thick white head. Thick aromas of spices, fruits and some hops. Full body. The bitterness helps to conceal the alcohol. An interesting brew.

KW92 (278) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 21, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, zamglone. Piana drobna, wysoka. Ładnie zdobi szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Cytrusy + owoce tropikalne. Owoce to - marakuja, ananas, mango. W tle karmel oraz zboża.
SMAK: Pełne w smaku. Owocowo-karmelowe. Słodkie. Posmak karmelowo-ziołowy ala cukierki ślazowe. Alkohol dobrze "schowany". Goryczka cytrusowa - średnia, zalegająca.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo przyjemne w odbiorze. Wydaje się być słodkie, ale wcale takie nie jest. Są w tym piwie zachowane odpowiednie proporcje, choć minimalną przewagę ma tu (w smaku) "słodycz"

Slightly hazy golden pour with a thin white head. Tropical fruit aroma; pineapple and citrus. Good bitterness up front, tropical fruit, malt. Bitterness persists but nicely balanced

Bottle. Amber with medium, semi-densed, white head. Poor head retention, medicore lacing. Aroma of exotic fruits, grapes citrus (lemon, orange), flowery. Taste is medium to high bitter, with nice floral and grapefruit peel-like hoppy profile, strong biscuity malty backbone, which balances hoppy bitterness. Medium body, thick texture, medium carbonation, finish is looong and bitter, little alcohol warming. In overall, may be not the best DIPA but solid, well balanced with nice hoppy profile. Worth trying.

Malty and fruitish aroma. Lovely foam. Hearty taste. Thick. Strong. Not too bitter DIPA with a lot of character. Soft.

Vells (925) - Riga, LATVIA - APR 21, 2015
Really nice DIPA. Its all about hops, but maltiness for balance is great. Quite intense grapefruit, peach, lighter lemon and pine, bit grassy. Fancy bitterness at start ends with robust bitterness in finish. Moderate to light sweetness covering all the way, Very drinkable and enjoyable brew

oppear (92) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 17, 2015
Yellow honey with a nice lasting head. You can smell somethings there from a distance after opening the bottle. And this is, of course, hops ( mostly nelson?). Hard to describe the smell, it is celery- breaded shrimps? Some citrus, mango, raspberries, no one-thing can describe. Tastes moderate, low-medium carb. and alc. levels. The same odd (nelson?) taste that is perhaps described as raspberries with shrimps, breaded :), bitter cherries lasts through the entire palate. It is not sugary at first, what is good, but towards the end sweetens up as perception changes. Aftertaste leaves an additional bitterness. Its not overly complex but then everything this does You get, in a simple expectable manner.

Wygląd: barwa złota, lekko zmętnione, spory osad na dnie, piana niezbyt obfita, średniopęcherykowa, średnio krążkująca. Na początku mocne wysycenie które gdzieś się szybko ulotniło ;) W aromacie: żywica, owoce tropikalne, lekkie toffi i herbatniki, dość silny ale szlachetny aromat alkoholu. W smaku: Wiem że w doublach goryczka jest przykrywana przez pełny smak ale szczerze mówiąc po tym co się naczytałem spodziewałem się większego uderzenia goryczki. Jest ona na wysokim poziomie ale nie tego się spodziewałem. Na plus jest że goryczka nie zalega, a to różnie z tym bywa w tym stylu. Oprócz tego duużo ciała - żywice, trawa, lekkie owoce i szlachetny alkohol. Słodkość na akceptowalnym (niskim) poziomie. Piwo pijalne i jak przypuszczam może być zdradliwe. Jeśli o mnie chodzi to w porównaniu do pokauzjących się ostatnio na rynku doubli i imperiali zdecydowanie jest w czołówce stawki.

CacheManyHose (360) - HONG KONG - APR 4, 2015
Very cloudy orange-tan, thin fizzy white head, streaky legs. Smells of lemon/orange dish soap, a little heavy/syrupy, tart, sharp, some cinnamon/spice. Taste is sharply fizzy, apple juice, musty, very bitter and piney. Body is bitter, fizzy, thick, sweet and spicy. Palate and nose both a bit too concentrated/cloying. Maybe not fresh? Started too acidic/sharp but improved a lot as it warmed up. Lots of lemon tartness, dry resin bitterness, spice and sweetness.
