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

DraftDodger (299) - - MAR 26, 2015
Copenhagen 26/3 2015. 50 cl on tap at Søernes Ølbar. Pours hazy yellow with small white head. Aroma is intense and very hoppy. Almost like armsweat (but in a positive meaning if that is possible). Medium carbonation. Taste is bit more subdued than the aroma. Some sweetness reminding me of peach, mango and pineapple and distinct bitterness with a dry finish. Fine IPA apart from the sweat.

Tap at Henrik, Bergen. Simply the most fantastic ipa I have had: layers and layers of floral and more bitter hops and an absurd abundance of taste. Excellent.
