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.

Pedrens (105) - SPAIN - MAR 26, 2015
Botella 50 cl. En snifer.Color amarillo paja algo anaranjadoalgo traslucido. Espuma blanca de media formación y retención media baja. Aromas frutales herbales y resinados muy potentes, uva, melocotón, albaricoque, mermelada de ciruela,jaras, resina, cedro, pino, corteza, musgo...malta muy de fondo. En boca cremosa y algo pegajosa, carbonatacion media baja. Sabores tal cual los aromas. Bastante dulce pero con los IBUS del lúpulo bien presentes, final largo frutal y resinado. Birrote q te cagas!!!!

Beergaard (157) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2015
Golden and slightly murky color - big fluffy white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, orange, tangerine, pine, camomile and other mild flower aromas and a bit of alcohol when you get closer. Tastewise the alcohol is very well hidden though and the taste is dominated by bitter and sweet citrus fruits, lemon grass, pine, some grassy notes, a bit of mint and and a slight malt sensation. Bitter and dry finish that lingers in your mouth for a while. A little more tropical fruit notes would have ballanced this beer to an even higher level - still a god damn alright beer though.

Cervezón cargado de lúpulo. Pino, aromas cítricos algo dulce. Cuerpo medio, resinosa, mucho lúpulo, melocotón, pino, amargor perfecto. Muy sabrosa. Repetiría y con ganas de probar las que faltan de la serie.

Przylus (322) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 10, 2015
W aromacie uderzenie białych owoców! Wyraźne lychee, ale takie z puszki, w syropie. Oprócz tego fajna karmelowość, trochę tropików i minimalny, szlachetny alkohol. Barwa złota, klarowne. Piana drobna, wysoka, zbita, długa, oblepiająca szkło. W smaku bardzo bogato! Cukierki ślazowe na początku, ale i na finiszu. Sporo cytrusów, głównie zielonych grejpfrutów. Jest też wyraźna marakuja i mango. Alkohol troszkę wyczuwalny, ale nie dominuje i nie przeszkadza. Świetna i długa goryczka zielonych grejpfrutów. Piwo bardzo pełne i przyjemnie rozgrzewające! Takie z gatunku "pochłaniasz dużymi łykami i nagle okazuje się, że mocno szumi Ci w głowie"

Tasting. JJ in attendance. Controversial. Decent balance but I think maybe a little malt heavy for an IIPA. I'll take a hop zombie any day. JJ on the other hand has a beer boner. You be the judge.

Pours light golden color. Aroma is fresh earthy and grassy hops. Taste is crisp fresh and bitter. You have no idea it is 9%. A great ipa!

JorisPPattyn (8202) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2015
Very good, thick, yellowish head over hazy, well-carbonated orange-ochre beer. Fruity, grapey, dry hops; lots of citrus and exotic fruit. Seriously bitter flavour with lot of hopoils, resins and wafts of exotic plants, not necessarily meant for human consumption. Grapefruit, grapefruitpeel, citrusmarmalade. Dry, astringent, oilslick and -sticky; well-carbonated and rather well-bodied. Well, yeah!

fellebag (1041) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle 50cl. Medium foamy head. Amber pilsener color, a bit hazy. Aroma is honey, hops, butter in a flower meadow. Taste is bitter flowery honey.

jaszymku (72) - POLAND - FEB 11, 2015
Piękny złoty kolor, lekko opalizujący, betonowa piana. W aromacie owoce, ale nie estry tylko chmiele, cytrusy z ogromną słodowością tworzą wrażenie słodkich owoców. W smaku pełne, słodkie z odpowiednio ogromną herbacianą goryczką, która o dziwo nie zalega. Niewyczuwalny alkohol. Zdradliwie pijalne. Świetne.

ogniskowicz (292) - POLAND - FEB 10, 2015
Aromat: eksplozja owoców słodkich owoców tropikalnych i żywic, lekkie nuty toffi i alkoholu Smak: potężne ciało wypełnione po brzegi monstrualna goryczką, tak pięknie skontrowaną słodkimi owocami tropikalnymi (mango, papaja, brzoskwinia), żywiczno-trawiastymi nutami i szlachetnym alkoholem. Faktura miodowa, oblepiająca. Wbrew pozorom zdradziecko pijalne. Pyszna IIPA.
