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.

Pours cloudy orange with about two fingers of thick white head. Aroma is distinctly fruity (mango, apricot) yet has plenty of caramel malt and toffee as well. Very sweet, with just a subtle hint of citrus. Taste is less sweet, there is some initially, when you can pick out the caramel malt, but also a light bitterness that grows over time. Finish is purely bitter and hoppy. Body is fairly light and oily with low carbonation. I quite liked it.

Yorker (1428) - Herning, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly cloudy amber with a little sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is malt, fruit, and hops. Flavour is malt, fruit, and hops – with a slightly bitter finish.

ClubGonzo (4375) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is grassy noble hops, pale malts, hints of melon and caramel. A bit faint. Taste is smooth grass and resinous hop tones and hints of herbs. Very neutral, but somehow still flavorful. Full body, soft carbonation. A strange beer, and I guess in many ways suited for its thematic profile.

brnandersen (2239) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2012
Sample from 50 cl bottle. Nice, cloudy amber colour with a beige head. Aroma with grapefruit, pines, a spicy note and sweet fruits. The taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture. Finishes bitter with floral hops, spices and some fruit. Well made APA.

VsXsV (2577) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium off - white head. Aroma of citrus, lemongrass, tangerine, light caramel, marmalade and tropical fruit. Nice. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of tropical fruit, grain and tangerine. Medium bodied with a bit low carbonation. Quite allright.

TEJA (1414) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Big, lasting beige head. Very clowdy orange color. A small but fine hop aroma that I think goes more towards herban then floral in its charater. Hop domitate the tate and some chrystal malts balasing and a fine litle sparkle. I agree with their statment that it isn’t American nor English IPA or pale ale, just a nice hoppy alt that probably will go fine with hearty food.
