Ölbeat 103: Ugly Duck Hop Devil

Brewery: Indslev Bryggeri / Ugly Duck Brewing Co.
Country: Denmark
Style: India Pale Ale
Abv: 7,5 %
What about the beer?
Colour is hazy copper orange with a large white head. Aroma has lemon, grapefruit and grass. Taste begins with a gently bitter first bite but explodes with fresh, biting bitter grapefruit and dry hops. Towards the end dry-tart pine, bite of sweet orange and some citrus peel are added to the flavour. Aftertaste has heavy dryness with a bitter sidekick.

Quote from the bottle label: "This is Nelson and Citra. This is tropical fruits and citrus aromas. This is pure joy." And damn tasty, too. Nuff said.


Ok. This will not be a habit - I've done this before: matched a heck of a Danish beer with a heck of a Danish rockabilly metal song. The joy of this brew is shared with the joy I get from Volbeat's music. I can promise only one thing: there'll be more from the band in the blog in the future.

From the 2016 album Seal the Deal & Let's Boogie, the song was written by Michael Poulsen.
