Amager Linda The Axe Grinder
Style IPA - Imperial / Double
Brewed by Amager Bryghus
Oaked Imperial Red IPA It is often said that behind every good man stands a strong woman. Well, in the case of Todd & Linda Haug of Minneapolis brewing fame, this is not quite accurate. Because Linda Haug was never placed behind her husband, rather she’s up there right next to him - and always has been. Two years ago we brewed "Todd - The Axe Man" (a beer title we had to come up with, Todd is way too humble to even suggest anything like that) which has been hugely successful, both in its Danish and its American incarnation. So we found it only fitting to brew a beer for Linda, Todd’s partner in crime in every aspect of life, since this couple has become very good friends of Amager. Linda is not only cool and badass, she also has the biggest heart you can imagine. And for the brew day she came here and worked her butt off to brew the beer we created as a collaboration. Here’s to you Linda - because next to every axe man, there’s an axe grinding wife….
Bottle 0,50L. Hazy, dark red color with minimal creamy, light brown head. Aroma of ripe fruit, peach, plum, brandy. Sweet/bitter taste with fruits at the beginning, nuts and nuts peel in the middle makes it bitter again. Some sweetness at the end. Present of ABV shows thru brandy like warming aftertaste. Love this beer!
