Very refreshing west coast style IPA.
Appearance: light amber, clear with a big white head that drops rather fast but doesn't disappear completly. Pretty nice lacing, but nothing special I guess.
Aroma is of citrusy hops, very fresh and pleasant. Grapefruit, mango and a bit of pine.
Taste: very hoppy, lots and lots of grapefruit, mango and so on. Zero traces of alcohol. Mild bitterness, however it lasts a bit too long.
Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation.
Overall it's a very tasty, decent and well balanced beer, but it's nothing special really.
Enjoyed from a shaker glass

750ml caged and synthetically corked bottle. A 'West Coast Style IPA', apparently, named for the Amass restaurant in Copenhagen, and the label's ornate script inspired by the graffiti in the nearby B&W shipyard.
Jebus H. Christos, I fucking hate that - pop the cork, gently set the bottle back on the desk, and before you can reach for your waiting glass, a rising tower of carbonated ineptitude comes spurting out over everything in the immediate vicinity. Did I say fuuuck?
Anyways, this eventually pours (hah!) a hazy medium copper amber colour, with two fingers (really?) of densely foamy, rocky, and yeasty-looking off-white head, which leaves some random Swiss cheese lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds away.
It smells of pungent grapefruit, orange, pineapple, mango, and kiwi fruity flesh, an equally sturdy caramel/toffee malt, musty pine needles, and further wet leafy, somewhat perfumed hops. The taste is more grapefruit, Christmas orange, and muddled tropical fruitiness, bready caramel malt, dry toffee, a suggestion of earthy yeast, a forest floor pine astringency, and more leafy, floral hop notes.
The carbonation is soft and barely actively frothy (of course it is), the body a decent medium weight, and smooth as it can be with all those hops skulking about, and weirdly a bit creamy. It finishes off-dry, that yin/yang balance of heady citrus/pine hops and stocky caramel malt still battling it out for our amusement.
A genuinely tasty, well-rendered version of the west-coast IPA paradigm, with just a wee tic of that De Proef yeast to mark its point of origin. Oh right, De Proef - they would be the reason for the downgrade in overall score here - first impressions being what they are in this world.
