India Pale Ale

….eller IPA er en engelsk øltype, der blev udviklet for at kunne klare sejlturen til Indien.

Tidligere sejlede englænderne deres øl til kolonierne i Indien, da det var for varmt til at brygge øllet lokalt. Den lange rejse og de store temperatursvingninger gjorde dog, at øllet havde svært ved at klare turen. Og da man ikke kendte til pasteurisering, blev der udviklet en øltype med en højere alkoholmængde, hvor der samtidigt var tilsat mere humle. Begge dele var med til at konservere øllen, så risikoen for at den blev dårlig i løbet af den lange rejse blev mindre.

På grund af den store mængde humle er IPA’en en relativt bitter øl (høj IBU). Denne bitterhed opvejes af aromahumlen, der er med til at give øllet en mere frugtagtig smag.

Og hvis det må være lidt nørdet – og det må det gerne – så står IBU for International Bitterness Units og er som nævnt en enheden for bitterheden i en øl.

Ibu fås ved at undersøge mængden af de opløste isoalfa-syrer fra humleharpikserne, der udskilles under urtkogningen og registrerer koncentrationen

En IPA har ofte et højt IBU indhold, typisk fra 50 – 100, mens en carlsberg er 8 ibu og grøn tuborg 18 ibu

 

American Pale Ale

…..eller APA  er en øltype, der blev udviklet i USA omkring 1980

Amerikanske pale ale indeholder omkring 5% alkohol og en betydelige mængder amerikansk humle, typisk Cascade.

Selvom amerikanske brygget øl har en tendens til at bruge en renere gær og amerikansk two-row malt, er det især den amerikanske humle, der skelner en APA´en fra den britiske eller europæiske pale ale. IPA og APA er i stil meget tæt på hinanden og grænserne udviskes langsomt. IPA’en er dog ofte stærkere og mere humlede end sin amerikanske fætter APA, der også lægger sig op af en amber ale, blot uden amber ales mørke farve, der skyldes brugen af ​​krystalmalt

Anchor liberty ale, en 6% ale, brygget i 1975 som en hyldest til til 200-års jubilæet for the american independence war, blev anset af den berømte engelske øl journalist Michael Jackson som den første moderne american ale.

Ejeren af Anchor brewery besøgte de britiske bryggerier I London og Yorkshire for at samle informationer om deres robuste pale ales. Han tog hjem til usa og lavede hans amerikanske version kun med malt, og ikke malt-sukker kombinationen der var populær på det tidspunkt, samt masser af den amerikanske cascade humle. American pale ale blev et hit og en fast del af øl udvalget i 1983.

En anden inspirationskilde til til apa´en var Jack McAuliffe fra New Albion Brewing Company der inspireret af de ales han havde smagt I skotland bryggede New Albion Ale I 1976.

New Albion Ale var på det tidspunkt voldsomt humlet med cascade humlen, 2.-fermenteret i flasken og ikke halm-farvet – alle ting, der på det tidspunkt ikke var normalt i pale ales.

Selvom New Albion Brewing company kun bryggede 800 liter om ugen i seks år inspirerede de mange andre bryggere

Det første bryggeri der succesfuldt lancerede en kommerciel APA var Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. Bryggeriet lavede deres første eksperimentielle batch af Sierra Nevada Pale Ale i slutningen af 1980

Siden er det kun gået en vej for Sierra nevada, der nu er det syvende største bryggeri i usa

“Mandarina Man: Tropical IPA 8%”

Peter Prescott was born the youngest of 7 boys, son of a fruit picker in an orchard not far from Asheville in 19th century North Carolina. Not only was he last in line when the one daily meal was served, he was also small and weak. Peter soon realized that in order to survive he had to find his calories elsewhere. Fallen mandarins and mangos from the thousands of orchard trees became his salvation – quite literally. Peter calculated that most days 95% of his nutrition came from those fruits. And luckily Peter liked fruits. However, in his puberty things started to change for Peter. While his peers developed acne, Peter also had excrescences growing on his skin. Those were not pimples though, but small branches that would set ripe fruit during the night. Most annoying were the ones that grew out of his ears. Medicinal experts found Peter’s case very interesting, but lost interest as soon as they realized that no money would cover their interest. So Peter continued to wake up with branches sticking out from his body, and every now and then the pattern would be broken with an additional mango taking two days to be ripened out of his belly button. Peter was not a good orchard worker, weak as he was and fighting his daily abnormities. So when P.T. Barnums travelling circus passed through Asheville in 1860, Peter’s dad said a quick goodbye and sold him to Barnum’s side show for as little as 50 dollars. Peter however didn’t really mind and became famous as the Mandarina Man in many US states. Some claim he was even more famous than fellow English freak The Elephant Man. Later Peter married his long time love ‘The bearded lady” but the couple never had any children. Which might also have proven complicated. This is a collaboration beer made with Wicked Weed Brewing, Asheville NC, USA.

“Going Old School: Dry-hopped West Coast IPA 7,5%”

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. This is a collaboration beer made with Bagby Beer Company, Oceanside CA, USA.
