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. Gćr: US-ale

Swaroga (1340) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : piwo jest mętne i jasne o zółtym, cytrynowym kolorze. Piana jest mała i biała. NOS : piwo ma mocny zapach cytrusów, marakui, trawki, torfu, zielonej herbaty, banana, tarty cytrynowej. USTA : średnio nasycone o średnio gęstej konsystencji. Piwo jest średnio słodkie o nutach tarty cytrynowej. Nuty cytrusowej są bardzo wyraźne i staje się cierpkie jak skórka cytryny, pompela i pomarańczy. Piwo jest następnie cytrusowo gorzkie z dodatkiem dziwacznych torfowych nut, które nie są mi obce... wałczę z nimi w moich piwach. Posmak jest cierpki i cytrusowy. ODCZUCIA : myślałem, że tylko moje piwa ostatnio maja ten dziwny torfowy posmak, którego trochę się wstydziłem. Wygląda na to, że Amager podchodzi do tego bez kompleksowo . Mają racje bo nie jest to rażący smak i nadaje całkiem ciekawego charakteru temu piwu. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 8/10 styl : +1
