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.

ciaranc (1090) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle picked up in Copenhagen. Clear gold, white head, floral citrus nose. Very bitter in flavour, backed by some light sweet malt, light enough body, forward carbonation. Very fresh this bottle, nice

RexTalionis (2923) - FINLAND - APR 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden in color with a frothy white head. Fresh citrus and tropical fruityness in aroma. Bit of malty and floral notes on the side too. Citrus, kiwi and passion fruity notes in taste. Grapefruity bitterness later on. Tasty.

larsga (6489) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2015
Big very white head. Hazy pale yellow body with strong carbonation and lots of small particles. Spicy citric resiny aroma. Dryish spicy orangey taste with resiny mealy oily notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish orangey sugary resiny aftertaste with orange peel and spice notes. Very nice and highly drinkable. Full of flavour. (0.5l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen. Batch #824.)

CacheManyHose (320) - HONG KONG - APR 4, 2015
Cloudy straw-gold. Thick fluffy white head with yeasty (?) clumpy bubbles. Smells delicious, like fruity New Zealand hop. Citrus, passionfruit, kiwi, mango, dry hop, resin, some new plastic/rubber (not unpleasant). Taste is dry, bitter, resin. Body is slick but crisp, quite smooth, bitter. Very nice.

HKdIPA (378) - HONG KONG - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy golden yellow with clumpy head. Aroma is really good - very lemon peel and pine hops but also with a almost chemical resinousness. Taste is nice too. Crisp, rich hoppiness - again tart lemon and pine. Really good. Palate is bubbly. Finish is crisp and slightly boozy and warm, with a lasting tartness.

jaszymku (90) - POLAND - APR 2, 2015
Jasne złoto, średnio mocne zmętnienie, średniej gęstości piana, szybko redukuje się do 2-3mm warstwy ze słabym osadzaniem. W aromacie czysto cystrusowe chmiele i odrobinę drożdże. W smaku mocna i krótka goryczka, z małą kontrą słodową bez konkretnego profilu. Bardzo poprawne i smaczne piwo, choć odstaje od Wookie IPA i nie robi tak kolosalnego wrażenia.
