Editor’s note: Brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

Brewers note: This beer is NOT brewed as an American Pale Ale. It is not brewed to suit a certain style which is why we call it a "hoppy ale".

English: Both the British and Americans are good at using hops - in slightly different ways. We have combined the best from both traditions and created Schopenhauers Vilje ("Schopenhauer’s Will"), a beautiful amber coloured ale with a floral character, caramel notes and - like the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer - a good portion of bitterness. This brew can be enjoyed on a hot summer’s day, a cool evening or accompanied by e.g. poultry dishes.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2008
Dark orange colored with hazy appearance. Big yellow head. Rich aroma with fine hops and floral fruits, good PA aroma with even some licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor also starts with sweet caramel and some brown sugar, aftertaste turns to strongly hopped with floral yeastiness. Fine brew, maybe not fully balanced.

Plovmand (7878) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle. Served by the brewers but was way to warm for an APA (about 18 C.) It has potential so I might rerate this one day. Amber colour. Hoppy nose and moth with some malts and spices.

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle. Clear, golden beer with a nice, dense, off-white head. Malty nose with sweetness and some spicyness and maybe a bit low on hoppyness. There’s something minty there as well. Quite spiced flavor too, sweet and malty and a bit low on hops and bitterness I think. At least until the finish, which is long and piney, with a little spicyness at the start. Medium to full body with a little sticky feeling. A nice beer, not the typical pale ale. (071123)

UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 50 cl bottle. Amber color, off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is hops and sweet malt, fruit. Bitter finish. Maybe a bit thin, but a great APA.

Ungstrup (34644) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is very hoppy giving it notes of spices and some fruits. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hops, spices, and some fruit, leading to a quite bitter finish. OK, but not great.
