Danish: Solstenen er særdeles omdiskuteret blandt lærde arkæologer. For havde vikingernes navigatører virkelig et sådant redskab, der kunne afgøre hvad der var øst, og hvad der var vest - selv på en overskyet dag? Det har vi valgt at tro på! Her mange år senere var en solsten dog ikke nødvendig, da Amager Bryghus blev invaderet fra vest af noget som I udpræget grad lignede amerikanske efterkommere af vikingerne. Chris Boggess og Barnaby Struve fra Three Floyds Brewing i Munster, Indiana ankom ikke med skumle motiver om hævn men derimod med en meget højlydt King Diamond på deres bærbare mp3-afspiller. Dette var ikke en dag til slagsmål eller hævndrab men til ølbrygning. Og brygget det blev der. Den bløde og nærmest skræmmende letdrikkelige Arctic SunStone er beviset på, at selv vikingekrigere kan have en mere blid og imødekommende side.

English: The sunstone - much disputed among scholars. Did the Viking navigators really have such a tool that would help them point out what was east and what was west - even on a less than sunny day? We certainly believe so. Many years later no sunstone was needed when Amager Bryghus was invaded by what very much looked like Viking ancestors of American descent. Hailing from Munster, Indiana, Chris Boggess and Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds Brewing arrived not with a vengeance but with very loud King Diamond on their portable mp3 player. This was not a day for slaughter but for brewing. And brew we did. The mellow and dangerously quaffable Arctic SunStone is proof that even Viking warriors can have a more subtle side to them. All hail to Three Floyds.

Ingredients: Water. Malts: Pale, Munich, Melanoidin. Hops: Tomahawk, Citra, Centennial, Simcoe. Yeast: UK-ale.

TorbenJensen (179) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2015
It is a beautiful golden pale ale brewed in cooperation with Three Floyds, as you know, repeatedly voted the world’s best beer. It has a very delicious aroma hops that flavor translates into citrus and exotic fruits like passion, pineapple and peach. Palate is hops strong but also very balanced with malt where fresh grain and light caramel can be found. Very well balanced and accurate pale ale.

Grzesiek79 (3451) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Tresciwe piwo ze spora piana ale srednio trwala, kremowa i ladna. Spore zmetnienie pomaranczowo brzoskwiniowa barwa. Piwo pachnie dojrzalym ananasem pomarancza i mandarynkami. W smaku bardzo slodowe, goryczkowe i kwiatowe. Tresciwe i sycace, sprawia lekko wrazenie przyciezkawego i nawet przypomina mi imperial ipa. Koncowka wytrawna i dluga.

Bottle. Grapefruit, peach, and mango with quite a malty backbone. Some caramel notes. Great balance. This bottle wasn’t fresh but, the flavors seemed to really hold up.

Pours cloudy gold with a big frothy white top and good lacing. Aroma is a little stale, thats on me I believe but a great aroma of grapefruit, mango hops. Taste is a big bitterness that lingers on the tongue, sweet grains balance it very well. Finish has a touch of yeast.
