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

Fruchtiger, herb rauchiger Beginn mit geringer Süße. Spritzig, die Hopfigkeit ist richtig dosiert die Rauchnoten großteils hintergründig. Geringe Würzigkeit. Sehr süffig. 12/10/11/11//12

The aroma is full of hops, citrus, lime, pine, mango, pineapple, passionfruit and peaches. The color is murky and peach-y. The taste is full of hops, pine, lime, citrus, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, peaches, apricot, mandarin and tangerine. A nice beer!

adasko (1923) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Super hazy, yellow color. Nice but very non-persistant head. Aroma surprisingly is full of passionfruit. Some orange and mango in the back. Very fruity, juicy in the nose. Same in taste in the beginning. A lot of passionfruit, which even gives a feeling of sulfor. Then in the end it has some flower notes, more calm and polite. It’s super dry all the way to the aftertaste where bitterness punches in the mouth. Medium body, very drinkable, even a bit refreshing, and still it’s so full of flavours. Awesome beer.

Tåkete lys brun med fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Luker grapefrukt. Middels fylde. Mye bitterhet som kommer fort, grapefrukt og sitrusskall. Rene smaker, alkohol. Lang. Noe oljete.

Eructoblaster (3888) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2016
Bottle - 500ml. Pours a beautiful hazy, golden body with a huge, white pillowy head. Lovely hoppy aroma with grapefruit and mango hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries citrusy, tropical fruits, and herbal notes. Ends with a long, sharp bitter finish. Great stuff.

Foffern (1693) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy yellow colour with an off-white. Fruity aroma of orange peel, grapefruit, grass, hay, soda, spices and light bread. More hops in the flavour with grass and harpix, but well balanced with nice fruity tones. Oranges and grapefruit. A little dry ending. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a solid but balanced bitterness. Hoppy, fruity and balanced. Very nice!
