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.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Kvickly, Helsingör (15,75 DKK). Välhumlad doft av grape och tall. Smaken är liknande. Pga alkoholstyrkan är den ganska tunn, men smaken är riktigt god. Passar riktigt bra att ha med sig på fest, då man kan klämma en hel del utan att det snurrar för mycket!

Orange cloudy body with a little white head on top. Ecstatic smell of pine, grass, some citrus and earty sour floral hops. Taste hoppy, pine, flowers and grapefruit with a mild aftertaste. Palate pretty good.

aleksander9 (641) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2013
Nice hazy copper with small white head. Aroma is huge for this ABV with earth, green hops, spice and some tropical fruit. Palate is weak compared to aroma, small carbonation. aftertaste is refreshingly bitter with some water in the end. Overall: Excellent aroma! boring mouth feel, but considering the ABV its very impressive. Its like a session version of a big IPA.

ianwelby (637) - SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2013
(Bottle) Hazy blonde beer with a strong grapefruit aroma. Plenty of zesty scents in there too. Flavour is an initial hop and citrus hit with a slightly floral edge. Taste is ever so slightly disappointing after the aroma and there’s not a particularly notable aftertaste either. Drinkable enough but nothing special.

radzik5555 (543) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 27, 2013
Butleka 0.3L Zlocisty, opalizujacy z plywajacymi drobnymi klaczkami. Bujna piana z duzymi pecherzykami, szybko się dziurawi i calkowicie znika. Aromat intensywny, melon, marakuja, porzeczka, zywiczny na koncu z lekko mydlany. Piana w smaku gorzka i mydlana zarazem. Piwo w smaku owocowo mydlane z wytrawnym finishem i lekko sciagasjaca goryczka. Wysycenie na poziomie srednim. Cialo srednie do niskiego. Od polowy butelki piwo stalo sie bardziej owocowe a mniej mydlane, bardziej przyjemne w odbiorze.

Bottle from Bierzwerg
Pours pale hazy yellow with huge white head. Smells citrus hoppy, slight malty-grainy. Starts with fresh fruity hops, tropical fruits and some sweet yeast. Finish is grassy and fruity, with a nice malt base.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
In short: A dry, hoppy and highly aromatic APA that feels bigger than its size.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed a few months before expiration date.
The look: Partly cloudy golden-orange body topped by a persistent small off-white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The bright aroma is floral and piney, this is quite aromatic for such a low abv IPA, Taste offers a solid crisp malt backbone, very crackery, no sweetness whatsoever. Generous hopping that adds grapefruits in mouth in addition to the piney and floral components. A bitterness of low-medium intensity. Not only is the body not watery but I didn’t even find it ligh. This beer doesn’t taste like a 3.8% APA, it tastes like a very dry 5%+ APA. Very satisfying for a 3.8% APA. An actual Dead Pony Club sounds cool but a Dead Baby Pony Club would be even better, I’m a necropedozoophile.
