COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing India Pale Ale where a relatively light malt body of Maris Otter, pilsner malt, light caramel malt and wheat is balanced by a nice hop bite from Columbus, Saaz and Amarillo. Dry hopped with Amarillo. Ølfabrikken Sommer IPA is, of course, unpasteurized, unfiltered and cask conditioned like all of our beers.

Tap at Beerfestival. Cant believe I havent rated this. Super crisp & tasty IPA. Lovely pleasant hoppyness - Pine & orange. Soper smooth palate with enough malts to back up the hops. Super drinkable!

Thanks go out to Jason and sk8viking for this one. Initial burst of pepper and other spiciness from the saaz. Wonderful! Unfortunately, this aroma completely faded after a few moments only to be completely dominated by the "cat-piss" element of the amarillo. What saves this, in my mind, is the use of pilsner and maris otter to create a nice underlying complexity. This helps lend some caramel and fresh bread notes which is contrasted by a bit of a spicey crisp character. Some decent bitterness in the finish, but a bit grainy and out of balance with the grain. Not bad, but too much amarillo that all else is overpowered.

Ughsmash (7007) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2007
July 2005 bottle, Batch #143 thanks to sk8viking! Poured hazy medium golden with a towering cap of rocky white head.. left some thorough lacing. Aroma picked up plenty of floral and other dried hoppage with bready pils, toffee, and toasted caramel sweetness behind it. Flavor had a sweet toffee, light bread, and lightly-charred caramel base with rather hefty bitterness even after 2 years (grainy floral and spicy notes primarily).. left some sweet orange zest and floral notes through the rather long finish. Medium-bodied.. creamy across the middle with rather high bitterness remaining through the back-end. Solid stuff.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Unclear, copper body and an off-white head. Surprisingly weak nose for a hoppy beer like this, but it has hops and beef-stock to brag about. The flavor is nice, but a little boring, very hoppy, mostly piney hops, and then there’s some beef-stock. Full-bodied beer with an intensely stinging hoppy finish, and it lasts. Definately a drink for the hop-heads. (070511)

GG (2019) - NorCal, California, USA - APR 13, 2007
NorCal tasting Apr 07 - There a few people to thank for this. First off, thanks to Papsoe for bringing this with him on his recent trip to the US, and thanks to Aspidites for sharing! Beer pours out a dark orange color with a nice off-white one-finger head. Aroma that first hits me is cat piss. Catty as can be. Flavors were a bill of clean hops, fresh and piney with a light malt profile. A very nice IPA. Nothing wrong at all and I can see drinking this in mass quantities...if I was ever in Denmark that is.
