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

Maakun (1269) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2015
Shared bottle. Hazy golden with small white head. Lots of dank hops, like some good skunk weed! Hmm. Then some tropical fruits with mango, passion fruit, lychee. Light sweet caramel malty base underneath. Taste is medium sweet with long lasting medium bitterness. Medium bodied with slight creamy feel. Massively hopped very nice IPA.

KW92 (276) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 18, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, opalizujące. Piana drobna, wysoka, długa. Ładnie koronkuje.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Bardzo owocowy (marakuja, mango, papaja). Na drugim planie cytrusy, zioła/żywica oraz słodowość.
SMAK: Od początku do samego końca soczyste grejpfruty. Goryczka średnia do wysokiej, krótka.
OGÓLNIE: Tak właśnie wyobrażam sobie godnego przedstawiciela stylu WEST COAST IPA...

Brandman (2311) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2015
old notes and some words to describe: quite huge hop bomb. tropical and resiny. very straightforward IPA, but does it really bring anything new to IPA world?

King_Alex_II (442) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Preopend bottle -> no carbonation when I drank it. Clear amber tea color (obviously no foam). Hoppy and fruity smell. Strangely mild and round. The taste is insanely smooth. Creamy light bitter light tart taste with fruity extremely balanced light malty sweetness. Carbonation would have benefited the beer (probably my own fault). The aftertaste has a little more tartness.
