COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Úlfur Úlfur er dæmisaga um tvöfeldni. Ferns konar humlar leika lausum hala, grimmir og beiskir í bragði! Grr. Grr.

Humlar ljá bjór góðan ilm og beiskleika, og eru oft notaðir tilað vega upp á móti sætu annarra hráefna. Í hefðbundnum IPA bjór (Indian Pale Ale) eruhumlarnir þó í aðalhlutverki. Úlfur Úlfur er hins vegar afgerðinni Double IPA og því alveg ótrúlega grimmur íbragði; dæmisaga um hvað gerist þegar humlarnir fá að að sýna klærnar og sperra sig vægðarlaust.

Vinnie Cilurzo, upphafsmaður Double IPA bjórstílsins, er lærifaðir annars bruggmeistara Borgar. Honum til heiðurs er Úlfur Úlfur gerður úr ferns konar amerískum humlum; Chinook, Columbus, Centennial og Amarillo. Útkoman er spangólandi villidýr með ýlfrandi sprækum keim af suðrænum ávöxtum á borð við rautt greipaldin og mangó.

HKdIPA (832) - HONG KONG - SEP 5, 2017
Bottle at Public House in Reykjavik. Light translucent straw yellow-orange pour with minimal white head. Mango-passion fruit peach aroma - really juicy and delicious. Taste is boozier, pinier, and a little less juicy, but zesty and bitter. Very very good. Palate isn't too heavy - smooth carbonation makes it feel lighter. Best Icelandic beer so far!

FatPhil (16692) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2017
KeyKeg (TCBW2017)
Sweet starchy aroma, stanky hops, citrussy and sweet. Clear pale orange, small tight head. Fleshy fruit dominated taste, peachy hops, sweet, but actual malts are low in the mix. Light palate, aided by crisp carbonation, fairly drinkable. Nice citrussy bitter finish. Seems like an APA recipe on steroids, didn’t work so well lfor me.
