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…

mcberko (11215) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 1, 2013
500mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of perfumey floral hops, a little pine and some caramelized biscuity malt. Flavour brings out pungent floral and piney hops upfront, along with a modest biscuity malt backing just for support. Extremely flavourful and superbly well-designed. Very dry body, with a moderate dry astringency on the finish. Excellent DIPA.

Kauge (1055) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle from Uba ja Humal. BB 04/2017. Was too beat to analyse it properly, so here’s an overall impression. It is pretty much what I expect from a proper DIPA, although the ABV is too much really, too much, and it’s 50 cl! Looks nice, although the head drops too fast, leaving almost no lace. The aroma and flavour is dominated by crisp, almost unripe grapefruits and some fuller stone fruits in the background. Lovely stuff. I must have drooled like Homer Simpson when having it. Totally forgot the writing part.

Shanshirohop (44) - Zaragoza, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2016
Excelente cerveza, de mis favoritas de los pecados de Amager. Mejora en cada trago y no se hace larga a pesar de probarla en botella en su formato de medio litro.

peponi (1054) - Mainz, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2016
Aroma: strawberries, sweet notes. Appearance: slightly hazy golden color and thin white head. Taste: high bitterness (astringent, long and rough), caramel, cellar, dry. Palate: full body and medium carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: One-dimensional and too rough beer.

Kosmokrator (764) - ITALY - FEB 6, 2016
Alla spina. DIPA muscolosa, cremosa e resinosa con sentori di frutta a polpa gialla, agrumi e caramello su un tappeto di luppoli che scatenano un amaro robusto e persistente. Ottima!

cokolwiek11 (245) - POLAND - DEC 1, 2015
golden orange beer with white head. Aroma: Citrus, pineapple, resin, pine. Strong and nice. Taste: med sweet, high, sharp but short bitter. Flavours again: citrus, pineapple, resin. Palate: medium body, light carbonation, alcohol is warming up and kinda increasing bitterness. Overall: Very tasty IIPA. Nice stuff. Even with this high and a little present alcohol on palate, it’s pretty drinkable.

Achel (307) - Ioannina, GREECE - NOV 25, 2015
Pours clear and golden orange with a huge, creamy and white head. Aroma is fruity and grapefruity hoppy. Pine and citrusy too. Bitter, dense fruity, crisp hoppy and peachy to citrusy. Dry and bitter, yet also light sweet and mild hoppy finish.
