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

HPDalen (188) - DENMARK - JUN 26, 2016
Very hoppy aroma full of pine, lemon, grapefruit and orange. Pours hazy light golden with a pretty small white head. Very bitter flavour, grapefruit, orange, hints of honey. Medium body and carbonation, bitter finish, long. I have a lot of love for this beer.

jaghana (5329) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 19, 2016
Bottle 50cl, a cloudy copper orange beer with medium head but good retention. Nose is intense on fresh exotic fruits as well as grapefruit and luppuline. Aroma is on toasted caramel, resin, grapefruit, mangoo, burnt coconut, orange, quite bitter finish. Body is correct the whole beer is quite classic.

Finsmager_dk (3) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2016 does not count
Nice fruity aroma with citrus, honey, mango and slight straw. The beer is refreshing and well balanced with loads og fruit and citrus and a hint of honey and caramel. The end is slightly bitter but not overpowering. The balance between fresh stone fruits, citrus and the bitter ending concludes a very drinkable beer that is in great harmony. Great for the summer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
