COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: For quite some time the Amager crew has been discussing this question: which person is the most rock’n’roll in the whole craft beer world - is it Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds or is it Todd Haug of Surly Brewing? In the end it wasn’t really all that difficult to decide since only Todd has played for Laura Dern in a David Lynch movie (yeah, Nicolas Cage was in that same movie, but since when did he count?) AND Todd plays the guitar in both a speed metal band and a stoner band. Add to that that Todd and his wife Linda are some of the nicest people to hang out with. So Todd, here’s to you: "Todd - The Axe Man" - a potent IPA loaded with fresh American aroma hops on a base of rich Golden Promise malt, Surly’s signature malt. Raise a glass to Todd, world class brewer - and master of the axe! Bonus facts about Todd: yes, he DID actually have a perm in his younger days (his wife confirms) and he does indeed love cats an awful lot.

Ingredienser: Vand. Malt: Golden Promise. Humle: Herkules, Citra, Mosaic. Gær: US-ale

Cool_Bond (1445) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2014
Heavy aroma of tropical fruits. The same applies to the taste. Absolutely wonderful beer. Occasionally with bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. Here’s how I want my perfect IPA should taste and then I of course give it a top score. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. A dense, off-white head of moderate size sits on top of an unclear yellow-golden body. The aroma has lots of hops, with pine cones, pineapple, resins, a generic tropical fruityness and in the back there’s some pale malts. It’s a bit sweetish on the palate, full-bodied and with a nice carbonation level. Some pale malts in the flavor, as a backdrop for all the tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus and resins. A good bitterness too. Lasting fruity finish where the beer feels quite dry. Pretty wonderful this one, and very drikable. 140927

rouhlas (136) - GREECE - SEP 26, 2014
500 ml bottle at home. Hazy yellow color with nice white head. Very nice aroma, hoppy, citrusy hoppy, lemons, grapefruit?, piney, light floral and definitely spicy but I cant understand what kind of spice, maybe some kind of hoppy spicy notes. Taste is like the aroma, sweet fruity and bitter, hoppy fruity again, light spicy and piney. Almost medium oily body with average carbonation. Nice bitter fruity aftertaste.
