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

PapaVillum (628) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2015
50 cl, flaske, 6,5 % ABV, batch # 998, BB: 03/16, købt gennem Boxbeers, 1. juli 2015. Orangegylden, rolig og ufiltreret IPA med tætskummende flot hvid top på 3 cm, som svinder til kant og overflade. Aroma af eksotisk frugt og humlenuancer af citrus og blomster. Dejlig enkel bitter smag og dog så fyldig. Solid bitter, let sødme. Meget læskende og lækker tør. Stor rund krop med middel karbonering og en olieret konsistens. Afslutningen er kort, tær og bittersød sluttende i det næsten beske. Dyb fascination af at kunne frembringe så meget smag i denne IPA.

Bov (10370) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 27, 2015
from Erzbierschof - hazy orange beer under a long lasting white foam; evident grapefruity hoppiness with notes of oranges and tangerines; full-bodied, assertive and very tasty; subtle carbonation and fairly bitter; very aromatic fruity hoppy finish where grapefruit dominates again; quite dry - very good one

Förr i världen pratade man om Florenssyndromet: en medicinsk hypotes som postulerade att starka konst- och skönhetsupplevelser, särskilt om de kom slag i slag, kunde försätta en i tillstånd liknande yrselanfall. Huruvida The Axe Man är stor konst i paritet med italienska renässansmålningar eller om det mest är alkoholen som talar - en dokumenterad yrselframkallare - det övergår mitt förstånd (som just nu är nedbrottad av spritdjävulen). Kanske ligger sanningen mittemellan, som den så ofta gör.

Pours dark golden. Loads of sitrus hops and a light malt bill that barely backs it up. A kick ass IPA with a dry finish.

500 ml bottle
Slightly hazy yellow to orange beer with dense white head. Aroma has resin, caramel, tropical fruits, citrus and perfume. Flavor has caramel, resin and citrus. Palate is full and soft. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste has caramel, resin and peach. A bit too heavy on the caramel side, but OK.

probstblueribbon (3274) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2015
500 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass. Batch 911, BB 11/2015. Cloudy deep golden with a bright white meringue. Intense peppery, spicy citrus, resin, grapefruit, limited grainy malt support. Medium+ body, full, creamy carbonation. Much like the nose with lots of pungent, spicy, lemony hops, resin and pine, sufficient malt support; off-dry with decent bitterness and a long, pungent citrus finish. Good stuff.
