COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Úlfur Úlfur er dćmisaga um tvöfeldni. Ferns konar humlar leika lausum hala, grimmir og beiskir í bragđi! Grr. Grr.

Humlar ljá bjór góđan ilm og beiskleika, og eru oft notađir tilađ vega upp á móti sćtu annarra hráefna. Í hefđbundnum IPA bjór (Indian Pale Ale) eruhumlarnir ţó í ađalhlutverki. Úlfur Úlfur er hins vegar afgerđinni Double IPA og ţví alveg ótrúlega grimmur íbragđi; dćmisaga um hvađ gerist ţegar humlarnir fá ađ ađ sýna klćrnar og sperra sig vćgđarlaust.

Vinnie Cilurzo, upphafsmađur Double IPA bjórstílsins, er lćrifađir annars bruggmeistara Borgar. Honum til heiđurs er Úlfur Úlfur gerđur úr ferns konar amerískum humlum; Chinook, Columbus, Centennial og Amarillo. Útkoman er spangólandi villidýr međ ýlfrandi sprćkum keim af suđrćnum ávöxtum á borđ viđ rautt greipaldin og mangó.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma is hoppy with pine, grass and citrus mixed with some sweet malt notes. Taste is initia malty thick sweetness followed by lots of grass and earthy hop. A nice double.

Ysok02 (375) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2015
Une superbe double IPA au nez trčs complexe, avec du houblon frais, du gingembre confit, des agrumes, de la minéralité et une belle note levurée. Bouche tout aussi réussie avec une attaque ample, puissante, de la rondeur, de l’amertume et de la longueur. Une des meilleures bičres islandaises que j’ai dégusté.

Cunningham (5667) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2015
Inviting unclear golden pour with a fine thick white head. Nice lacing. Powerful nice aroma with the usual stuff. Pine, tropical fruity and grapefruit hoppy. Yummi. Nice medium to full body with a smooth carbonation. Very balanced sweetness versus bitterness. Balanced powerful flavor with pine, grapefruit hoppy and tropical fruits. Lovely ale for hop heads. No disturbing alcohol either in aroma or flavor! Dangerously easy drinkable.
[Bottle from a trade with mcberko]

Bottle. Pours weak hazed golden with a huge frothy off-white head. Distinct resiny and piney hops in the aroma. Taste is moderate bitter & dry, resiny oily hops, very crisp and moreish DIPA.

tbonde (177) - DENMARK - APR 20, 2015
33cl bottle@Hilton Hotel Bar, Reykiavik@approx 6 degrees C. Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Charming aroma of American hops - pine and citrus galore with a little vanilla thrown in. Heavily hopped flavour which fills your mouth completely, but well balanced by enough malt to keep it from being just a hop-bomb. Very nice, rich creamy texture supplements the well balanced tastes and makes this surprisingly easy to drink despite its 9% ABV, though that alcohol can also be detected. Definitely a very good APA or if you prefer: IIPA and the best Icelandic beer I have had so far.

mcberko (9348) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
On tap at the Laundromat Cafe, pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Nose brings out rich piney and resinous hops, and a dry biscuity malt. Flavour is robust, with loads of piney and resinous hops that blast through, backed by just enough biscuity malt to back. This is a great IIPA - American calibre. Excellent stuff.

[Bottle (330ml) shared with and courtesy of jercraigs & mabel] Pours a hazy gold with average size white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma and flavour are nice, citrusy and hoppy along with biscuity malt. Decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. A pretty good DIPA.
