English: These days it appears that trends in the craft beer world come and go faster than ever before. Beer drinkers with a fresh Untappd account will claim to be experts in craft only two months after advocating to anybody, who’d care to listen, that PBR was the hottest thing since beer floats. And they WILL demand new stuff, will insist on the lazy and dried out brewers to get their act together. And so we do…. Let’s talk IPAs. We’ve had the red ones, the white ones and the black ones. And now we hardly remember those styles anymore. At the moment it’s all about the haze, that lovely juicy haze. It’s great, it’s amazing, it’s wonderful. And in spite of all the bitching above, it is truly inspiring to be challenged, to be kept sharp. But then again, sometimes it’s also such a relief to return to a beer that you really feel for, a beer that has dug its own cavity in your heart. To a true hophead’s brewery like Amager such a beer is a West Coast IPA – a style that was itself new and innovative quite some years ago. So juicy and hop forward, with hops that bite. And when Jeff Bagby came by our brewery for a collaboration, it was a no brainer that a West Coast IPA should be born. Jeff with a past at Stone and Pizza Port and a hand in some of the juiciest IPAs out of California. Bagby Beer Company and Amager share the love for those potent hop bombs, and we’re not even ashamed to admit it.

MarcoBasile (466) - DENMARK - OCT 12, 2017
Pours a clear deep orange to amber colored body with a creamy off white head. The aroma is straight outta the West Coast handbook. Big on the grapefruit, malts and sugar. It’s even sticky in the nose. Taste is very bold up front; Solid malts with serious grapefruity and citrusy hops. Hop oil. Aftertaste is very subdued citrus and sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Decent, but lacks a bit of balancing in the aftertaste. Too clinical snd sweet for me to enjoy thoroughly.

Terribly vegetal aroma, peas and green beans. Taste no better. Palate slickish, with dirty and earthy bitterness. Finish goes straight back to the vegetables.
