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.

Zlotta (160) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2015
0,33 l bottle, best before 4/9/2015. Clear, orange liquid with a frothy, diminishing, white head. Lovely, hoppy aroma of tropical fruits like passion fruit, mango and tangerine with gentle hints of resin. The taste is less impressive: mango, passion fruit and some grapefruit in the end. Medium thin body, quite watery, flat carbonation. A bit like multivitamin juice with soda. Very short, only slightly bitter finish. Average beer I would say. Decent IPA-aroma but lacking heavily in terms of body. Still quite good for a Session IPA.

Case (286) - GERMANY - JAN 21, 2015
As soon as I pop the cap a strong hops aroma hits my nostrils. I say my prayer of thanks to the hop gods and pour this pony into a glass. A shining golden liquid with medium-sized off-white head welcomes me with aromas of pungent freshly cut grass, grapefruit and pine. The taste is dry through and through, with a medium bitterness and a light, refreshing, soapy body. I believe this is the best Session IPA I’ve had so far - super-light yet super-aromatic. I wish I could afford to drink this all night.

Bottle at home (batch 334, best before 04/09/15). Pours slightly hazy golden amber with a small white head. Hoppy aroma of citrus, pine, grass. Taste is bitter sweet hoppy, fruity citrus. Bit thin maybe, but considering the low abv it is really good. Nice.

TychoJames (297) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2015
Burk systembolaget. Disig äppeljuicefärgad vätska. Frisk och blommig humledoft. Smått pafymig och kryddig. Ananas, passionsfrukt och citrus. Smaken drar starkt åt tallbarr och apelsin med tydlig beska mot den lättare kroppen. Torr avslutning.Ett mycket bra alternativ när iporna börjar äta för mycket på nykterheten.

Scottishchris (303) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Drunk many times. Gold, good white head. Lovely and lively hop and citrus nose. Light malt with good tropical fruit and hop taste. One of brewdogs best and never fails.

LeFaune (37) - ST MANDE, FRANCE - JAN 13, 2015
A bit watery (indeed a session IPA), but a very beautiful color and average taste. Hops, caramel, flowers in the front taste and toasted cereal aftertaste. You will have several but you will forget it easily.

Clear amber colour with medium white head. Bottle conditioned. Intense grapefruity aroma, with sweet citrus fruits and a sweet malty background. Taste follows the aroma, but with much less intensity, which is logic as it’s a Sessionable IPA. Good balance between the malt sweetness and the hop bitterness on the aftertaste.
