COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as ’Dead Pony Club’.

Bottle and keg: Filtered

Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That’s why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

una pale ale del pacifico. Molto luppolata ma gradevole, freschissima e di buona persistenza, per una buona bevuta

I used to think this was the poor cousin of their successfull IPA punk but it’s grown on me, refreshig, fruity and very hoppy. Tastes stronger than 3.8. Nice session beer

I love good branding but Brewdogs specific brand of branding it down your throat has branded me out in the past but I’m coming round. Its got more hops than a field of rabbits and kangaroos. Its balanced with rich bitter orange and grapefruit. Good colour and lacing. A pretty beer. A great tasting beer and tastes stronger than 3.8. But it would do after lacing it with enough natural preservatives to kill alien germs from another planet. Could be richer on the palate.

Halvklar guld/orange med vitt skum. Riktigt bra doft: mycket frukt, ljus malt, karamell, citrus. Bra humlig smak med en lagom beska och låg alkohol % vilket gör det till en perfekt session öl. Riktigt bra för att vara så alkoholsvag! Burk från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eduardovl (929) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 7, 2014
330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a clear orange color forming a big medium bubbled white head with super retention and lots of lingering molasses lacings formed and left in the glass. S: Very refreshing. Strong notes of tropical fruits: Passion fruit, mango, pineapple and orange. Flowery, grassy and pinny.Sweet pale malts. Well, great nose. T: Slightly sweet malts in the upfront. Delicious malty and crispy mouth. Very fruity. Again, notes of passion fruit, mango, pineapple and orange. Medium carbonation. In overall, a quite dry and sharp bitter taste. M: Very light and watery body. Medium carbonation. Flowery and herby hops aftertaste. O: Excellent drinkability. Absolutely delicious Pale Ale.

The smelled hyped this up for me big time. It didn’t bring my hopes crashing down to taste it but I was a wee bit dismayed. Looks and palate wise it is fine indeed, copper, white head and a medium body with mid carbonation. Huge notes of pineapple, white grapefruit and mango mixed with biscuity caramel malts hose the nose down. Mid gulp/swish I always seem to get some strange, not necessarily awful, taste of cheese slices. Not strong enough to be absolutely off putting but still present, it is affecting an otherwise very enjoyable session beer for me.

Belle robe blonde très dorée et limpide qui tire presque sur l’ambre claire.Mousse blanche, fine, peu. Bouquet d’houblons aromatiques au nez, cher à Brewdog (mais surtout cher à ses aficionados !) Nez de fleurs printanières, prairie verdoyante, agrumes, poires, passiflore, grenadille : fruits "frais". Au goût on y retrouve tout, en peut-être moins décapant.Tout est assez léger et équilibré (parfaitement).Du coup, le malt domine un peu plus que chez sa grande soeur "Punk".Très doux, très frais, petite amertume sur la fin sans trop de sécheresse ni d’astringence.Superbe "Session" !
