Danish: Begrebet "ølhund" er meget veletableret i hele den vestlige kultur, og den seneste hundevidenskabelige forskning etablerer da også, at hunde sætter endog særdeles stor pris på øl. En helt ny afhandling går skridtet videre og dokumenterer de enkelte hunderacers præferencer for bestemte øltyper. Pekingesere er f.eks. til Radlere med cola, Rottweilere elsker at dyppe snuden i en heftig Imperial Stout, mens Beagler ikke er kommet stort ud over guldølsstadiet. Men så er der jo hunderacen, som står vore hjerter nærmest, fordi den er stor, godmodig og ofte en kende velnæret - ikke helt ulig os her på Amager Bryghus. Vi taler naturligvis om Labradoren. En race, der fuldkommen som os bare ELSKER velhumlede Imperial IPA’er, i en sådan grad, at de ligesom os bare bliver ved med at drikke til de går i et temmelig bedugget humlekoma. Til Labradorens ære har vi brygget netop deres yndlingsøl, en fed, fed Imperial IPA, som er så tætpakket med humle, at den nærmest savler ud over glaskanten. Vuf!

English: The concept of the “ale hound” is well established throughout Western culture, and unsurprisingly the latest canine research shows that dogs are extremely appreciative of beer. A recent dissertation takes this one step further and documents the preference of individual breeds for specific beer styles. The Pekingese, for instance, are into Cola Radlers; Rottweilers like dipping their snouts in a hefty Imperial Stout; whereas Beagles have not evolved beyond the Strong Lager stage. But then there is the one breed that is dearest to our hearts, because it’s large, kind, and often quite well fed – much like the staff here at Amager Bryghus. We are, of course, talking about the Labrador Retriever. These are dogs, which – like us – simply LOVE a well-hopped IPA, and just keep lapping it up till they slip into a hop-induced coma. In honor of the Lab we have brewed their very favorite beer: a fat Imperial IPA, jam-packed with hops virtually drooling over the rim of the glass. Woof!

Bottle 0,50L. Murky, light brown color with small, off-white, frothy head. Light aroma of ripped fruits. Taste starts light sweet and turns to a medium bitter with ripped fruits and very bitter finish. I found some banana esters there. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. A bit of alcohol warmth at the end.

Sweet, cloying smell of toffee, honey, sweet bread. Almost barley wine territory. Even more honey in taste, big body, plenty of hops that nevertheless take a backseat. Goes in the right direction with the big body, but sweetness could be toned down. Also needs more hop aroma.

Trochę mi zajeżdżało american barley wine’m. Było w nim dosyć sporo cytrusów, wspomaganych lekką landrynką. Aromat intensywny, ale też bez przesady. W smaku odrobinę słodowe, słodkie ze średnią+ goryczką. Miejscami przebijał się smak syropu ziołowego - ale tylko miejscami. Dobrze się prezentowało w szkle. Całkiem, całkiem.

Bottle. Bronze.Bursting with fruitiness and hops.Well rounded and full bodied.Quite a stunning beer. Usual excellent and interesting label you expect from this top draw brewery.

bjorn77 (718) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Aromat: bardzo mocny, świeży, intensywny i owocowy. Są tu cytrusy, owoce tropikalne, sosnowe żywice, brak nut karmelowych, piękny i lekki aromat. Wygląd: bursztynowozłote, średnio przejrzyste, utworzyła się bardzo ładna, bielutka warstwa piany, dwucentymetrowa, średnipęcherzykowa, utrzymuję się pewną chwilę. Smak: słodkie i bardzo owocowe. Słodycz pochodzi tu od świeżych, słodkich i soczystych owoców, są tu ananasy, mango, marakuja, grejpfrut, pomarańcza, mandarynki. Nuty żywiczne obecne i dobrze wkomponowane w całość, brak niepotrzebnych elementów karmelowych i landrynkowych. Goryczka mocna żywiczna i grejpfrutowa, świetnie balansująca słodką część piwa, chwilę zalega, dając uczucie świeżości i orzeźwienia. Alkohol ukryty, wysycenie średnie w kierunku wysokiego, bardzo pijalne. Piwo dosyć treściwe, tych owoców jest naprawdę sporo, Mosaic pełni tu znaczącą rolę, jest to taki imperialny West Coast. Piwo o pięknym aromacie, świetnie zbalansowane, intensywne i niezwykle smaczne.

(Bottle, 0.5 l - batch 1325 - BBE 05/2017, at Ølhus København, 20170421) The beer poured deep amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had pine, caramel, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, needles, malts, caramel and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, hoppy and bitter. A very tasty brew with strong malty backbone and hoppiness.

This iipa is one of my favovites. Very massive hop aroma. Oily and chrisp mouth feel. Taste is hops, resin, pine, tropical fruits. I think this beer is underrated, it should be top 50 imo

Speko (480) - DENMARK - APR 12, 2017
