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…

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2011
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of cirusy and spicy hops on a malty and yeasty background. The flavor is sweet with notes of lots of hops lending it notes of citrus fruits, spices, and hay on a malty and chewy background, leading to a very almost roughly bitter finish.

Solid body with a juice, sweet fruitiness. And the solid hoppiness is felt straight away on your palate. Medical and almost herbal. Heavy bitterness in the finish. Serious stuff this! 311011

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
Draught at Danske Ølentusiasters Ølfestival 2012, Copenhagen
Hazy golden color, small head. The aroma is earthy, some manure and some fruits. The mouthfeel is almost chewy, with strong malt and caramel flavor, but obviously overwhelmed by the extreme hopping, that confirms the first impression and appears to be earthy before fruity, very resiny, a bit piney; the sweetness is moderate, well adapted to the beer.
Frankly a very good Double IPA, although I get more excited with more elegant lighter beers.
