COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

omhper (19975) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2014
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, mid sized head. Huge citric lychee aroma. Mid dry with medium body and rounded, lightly oily mouthfeel. Completely dominated by juicy citric hops. Long really bitter finish. A bit overkill on the hops, but not really off balance. Hugely aromatic.

500ml bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Batch 911. BBE 11/2015.

Hazy pale orange look with a big white soapy head. Fresh hoppy citrus aroma. Fresh flavour also, citrus, hops, grapefruit. Suitably sharp aftertaste. Easy to drink and joy.

Flaska delad med @thaalcoholic, tack. Grumlig guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar stort fruktigt, vitt fruktkött. Mangofruktig med stor beska som hänger kvar. Smarrig

Sigmund (5319) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Pale golden colour, slightly hazy. Moderat white head. Strong aroma of citrus and tropical fruits, a hint of tomcat. Light bodied for its strength. Hoppy flavour, medium dry, some tropical fruits, distinct notes of grapefruit, bitter finish.

venom666 (416) - Elche, SPAIN - DEC 16, 2014
Hazy golden color with fluffy white head. Bottle conditioned, with some sediments. Aroma is full of Mosaic and Citra, full of tropical fruits (passion fruits, pineapple, grapefruit) but also some sweet citrus fruits (orange above all). Taste follows the aroma, very juicy and hoppy, with mango, stone fruits and grapefruit, and a lingering bitter aftertaste. Can’t find any malty presence, this is a pure hoppy beer.

Flaska från SB. Ljust halmgul vätska med mycket tjockt skum. Bajshumle i massor är det som överfaller näsan. Denna var besk, rejält besk. Nästan lite IIPA-varning. Stram, smakrik utan att spreta. Trots att jag har problem med humlingen måste jag ge den beröm. Lite spritig avslutning men jag tror den är för kall och blir bättre när den värmts upp ett par grader.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2014
Aroma is fruity and malty, with citrus and peaches being the most prominent. The taste takes you backstage after a small club gig. There is moisty flavors from peaches, lemon and pine. The malt is there like a wet, sweaty towel around your neck. Good brew!
