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.

Bottle. Pours murky yellow-orange with a thin but constant head that lingers. Medium carbonation. Lemon sweetness and grapefruit bitter form a great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Tropical fruits, pine and citrus in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with caramel and citrus notes. Very well balanced and with a dry bitter finish. Overall, a good beer.

BlackHaddock (6119) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2016
7th July 2016: shared in La Rovira, Barcelona on the RBESG. Monster of an IPA, full of hop notes with citrus esters attacking your nose and taste buds, some sweet, some not so sweet.

500 ml. bottle split by 2 @ Beerlovers Bar. BBF 04/2017. Great label text. Hazy orange, little whtie bubbles. Nose is big dank citrus hop, massive pineapple, nice lovely fruit, low white grape. Low chalky yeast in taste & body but mainly very juicy with huge pineapple juicy hops followed by peach, apple & white grape. Deliciously fruity & juicy, drank really well. Very solid IPA. Pricey though.

Drews_Brews (8) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 5, 2016 does not count
Poured from can into tulip glass with a citrus hop aroma and a golden/amber appearance. Minimal head that dissipated quickly over a cloudy liquid. Taste of a medium bitterness and a blast of citrus. Overall, for me, 18. A great summer beer for the IPA lover.

This is some intense beer. Fresh batch. Tropical fruits, sweet citrus fruits and pine. Very very bitter. Would love to try the Surly version.
