COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: For nu at være helt ærlige, så var det slet ikke meningen, at vi skulle brygge sammen med Cigar City Brewing I år. Men vi fik en mail fra brygmester Wayne Wambles, som skrev: "Hej allesammen, jeg kommer til Copenhagen Beer Celebration igen i år, skal vi ikke brygge sammen?" Og da Wayne ikke blot er en af de mest sympatiske personer i ølverdenen men også en af de dygtigste og mest innovative, ja så var der ikke så meget at betænke sig på, selvfølgelig skulle vi brygge med Cigar City også i år!
Øllen vi landede på blev "Orange Crush" en såkaldt Session IPA - lav i alkohol og potens, men med super høj drikkelighed. Kraftigt tørhumlet med de mest saftige amerikanske aromahumler: Citra, Mosaic og Simcoe - og så med en særdeles solid dosering af vores hemmelige ingrediens, en super velduftende variant af tørret appelsinskal fra amerikanske appelsiner.
Orange Crush er tænkt som en tørstslukker, og vi er næsten sikre på, at du vil kunne li’ den. Og Wayne, du er velkommen til at kigge forbi når som helst!

English: To be totally honest, it wasn’t really part of our plans to brew a collaboration beer with Cigar City also this year. But we received a mail from head brewer Wayne Wambles saying: "Hey guys, I’m coming back for the Copenhagen Beer Celebration, why don’t we brew a beer?" And since Wayne is not only one of the nicest persons in the craft beer world but also one of the most innovative and skilled, it was an easy decision to make room in our schedule for another Cigar City collaboration. The beer of choice turned out to be "Orange Crush" a so called Session IPA - low in alcohol and potency, but high in drinkability. Heavily dry-hopped with the juiciest of American aroma hops: Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe and a solid dose of our secret ingredient, a super fragrant brand of American orange peel. Orange Crush is a bit of a quaffer - we’re almost certain, that you will like it. And Wayne….you’re welcome back anytime!

Ingredienser: vand. Malte: Pale, Crystal, Cara-pils. Humle: herkules, Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic. Tørret appelsinskal. Gær: US-ale.

Flaska från Boxbeers, Amager-provning. Mörkorange med halvfinger högt krämvitt skum. Doft och smak av apelsinskal, kåda, granskott och ganska stora malttoner. Sötma i aromen från syltat apelsinskal med lite bränd beska i eftersmaken. Ganska maffig och relativt stor kropp, sötma och beska för att vara en session IPA.

eduardovl (1454) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2017
500ml bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange to amber color forming a big off white head with good retention that leaves lots of thin lingering lacings in the glass. Nose is sweet, fruity and flowery. Notes of sweet grains, grapefruit and orange zest. Notes of mango and passion fruit. Taste follows the nose: Grapefruit, mango, passion fruit, caramel malts. Slightly sweet upfront and good bitter finish. Slight notes of pine and resin. Light body. Juicy. Medium carbonation. Grapefruit and pine in the aftertaste. Great Session IPA!

Svesse (8613) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2017
(Bottle) Pale amber colour with big, frothy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with orange peel, apricots, honey, pine needles and orange candy. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, apricots, pine needles, honey, mandarin and a generous citric bitterness in a dry finish. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and refreshing. Quite bitter, but still highly drinkable. Very nice.

kaserov (800) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2017
Color naranja, turbio, repleto de sedimento, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa. Aroma a naranja, cáscara de naranja (amargor), mucha malta caramelizada y resina. En boca es de entrada casi dulce, más cercana a una IPA que a una Session. Mucha malta caramelizada, naranja, resina, toques herbales. Deja buena impresión en boca y es más fuerte y maltosa de lo esperado teniendo en cuenta sus 5%. Seca. Amargor medio que continúa en postgusto.

Bottle @ home. Hazy dark orange to reddish color, small yeast particles in it, full sized rough white to off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is lightly malts, hops, orange, grapefruit. Taste lightly malts, hops, citrus, orange, resinous citrussy hoppy, sticky resinous hops, a slight sharp citrus bitter finish. Decent to medium body, thinning yet slightly sticky texture at the same time, medium carbonation. Decent.

Tap at Uba ja Humal, Tallinn. Copper color, medium-sized beige head. Rye bread, orange peel and citrus in the nose. Light to medium-bodied. Citrus, crystal malts, cracker, orange peels. A bit too sweet for my liking.
